The Windsor/ Essex County Humane Society is issuing a warning about someone in the community who has been collecting stray animals and claiming to be associated with the Windsor/ Essex County Humane Society or Essex County Animal Control Services.

The Humane Society says that they do not know who this person is, and this person is not associated with the Humane Society or Essex County Animal Control.

They say that their employees will always be wearing a staff shirt and driving a marked vehicle.
