" In other recent changes in the agency, Carly Wismer has taken over as the department's attorney handling dog law cases. She replaces David McKenzie, who left after two years to start his own law firm. I was told Wismer's title is "assistant counsel in the office of chief counsel "- not special prosecutor for dog law. A Google search shows she is also handling legal issues involving horse racing. What we don't know is at what point the special prosecutor for dog law - as designated by Gov. Rendell who created the position in 2006, morphed into a general attorney for the Department of Agriculture or what that means for future prosecutions of dog law cases.
Lancaster County attorney Leonard Brown - whose firm, Clymer, Musser Brown, has fought vigorously to try to overturn the state dog law and defended many individuals charged with animal abuse - is running for county judge. Brown is one of two candidates seeking the Republican Party endorsement for the opening on the county Court of Common Pleas at its meeting next month. More from the Lancaster Intelligencer here."
