COLBERT COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Interim director of the Colbert County Animal Shelter, Richie Michael, resigned Tuesday.

His resignation comes after a shelter employee violated state law by euthanizing a family's dog too soon.

Mary and Keith Bullington's dog "Roscoe" was put down less than 24 hours after he was brought in to the shelter, a violation of the state's seven day stray hold time.

The animal shelter board will soon begin searching for a new director.

Shelter employee, Judy Nichols, will be in charge of the shelter until then.
