Safety and Public Awareness

News reporting arrests, weather warnings, product recalls, and other important information relating to safety and public awareness, are found in this category.

According to a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office, dated Dec. 22, 2011:
The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Animal Shelter would like to remind pet owners of the dangers associated with the New Year’s Eve festivities and animals. Every New Year’s Eve holiday brings loud noises and disturbing activities, which frighten animals, causing otherwise docile and friendly pets to become agitated. Animals when frightened will often run away. To reduce the likelihood of an accident or injury, do not allow your pet to be in the vicinity of fireworks or other loud noises

As a precaution it is best to keep your pet in your residence, garage or in a secured pen during the holiday celebrations. Make sure your dog is licensed, and is wearing the license tag. The Sheriff’s Office Animal Shelter strongly encourages pet owners to micro-chip their dogs and cats. Local veterinarians and animal welfare groups can assist with micro-chipping. This is cheap insurance to assure you and your pet are re-united should they become lost.

If your pet does get lost please contact the Humboldt County Sheriff Animal Shelter as soon as possible at 707-840-9132
.  The shelter is located next to the airport in McKinleyville, at 980 Lycoming Ave. The shelter will be closed on Monday January 2, 2012, however will be open again on Tuesday, January 3, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. for adoptions and redemptions of lost animals.  If your pet becomes lost, we recommend you come into the shelter and look for your lost pet or check our website at: www.petharbor.com to view the animals at the shelter. If you find a lost animal, please report it to the appropriate law enforcement/ animal regulatory agency where the animal was found. The shelter also maintains a lost animal log book.

There are currently many adoptable pets at the shelter waiting for a good home!

 According to a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, dated Dec. 20, 2011:

On Dec. 19, 2011, at about 5:00 p.m., Sheriff Deputies were dispatched to the 3100 block of Fickle Hill Rd, Arcata, to handle a report of found human remains. The reporting party said that his children found a human skull while playing in the yard. Upon arrival the Sheriff Sergeant confirmed that the skull was in fact human remains. 
The father indicated said that his two young boys were playing near the tree-lined area of their yard when they discovered the skull. The boys then carried the remains into the home to show their father what they had discovered. The father believes that it is possible that one of his dogs may have found the skull in the wooded area near their home and brought it to the place where his two boys discovered it. The area was searched but no other remains were located. The Humboldt County Coroner arrived and took possession of the remains for further investigation and possible identification. 
The next morning search teams from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s office returned to the area. At about 11:45 a.m. the search teams located additional human remains in the wooded area southwest of where the skull was located. The decomposed condition of the body will require further forensic investigation to determine the age, sex, race and possible cause of the death.
Due to the unknown nature of this discovery, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Detective Division is investigating this as a suspicious death. At this time Crime Scene Investigators from the Department of Justice and the Humboldt County Coroner's Office are assisting with this investigation. Further information will be provided when available.
Anyone with information is requested to call the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriff's Office Crime Tip line 707-268-2539.
