You, abandoned

That’s correct. Last week, DWP; this week, Animal Services. KNBC reports, boxes containing thousands of names, addresses, driver license numbers, dates of birth, checking account information, and Social Security numbers were abandoned at two shuttered city animal shelters, one in West L.A. and another in Van Nuys—a facility that closed nine months ago.

Ed Boks, the head of animal service, refused to talk to KNBC. But in an e-mail he said that when the city was moving to a shelter "our complete focus rested on the animals." And, as a result, paper records were not properly disposed. He promised it would "not happen again."
