Jim Evans has had many unusual calls for help during his 25 years as LaRue County dog warden.
“I’ve had calls for me to come and get possums, coons, and horses,” said Evans, who is retiring at the end of the year. “I’ve even had a call for me to catch a skunk and a three-foot lizard.”
As dog warden, his actual responsibility was to pick up only the canines, so he would usually refer the callers to the appropriate people who could capture the other animals. He has had his hands full, sometimes literally, with dogs.
