The fact that the DEC is the hub of misinformation doesn’t help matters either.
In December 2016, a large-scale confiscation of over 300 animals occurred from a residence in Niagara County, New York. Once it was learned that the target had boarded foxes at the facility after thoroughly vetting the facility owner, Powell took the story and ran, albeit making an even bigger story not long thereafter. The facility owner, the one charged with animal cruelty, Thomas and his cronies at the agencies worked together to derive stories from the situation such as the target was responsible for the entire confiscation when the only ones she had there were several foxes. False accusations of starvation and the like were made behind the back of the target so she couldn’t confront the accusers and assert the truth of the matter. Although the suspicions of the DEC officer onsite the night of the raid may have been in honest error, the way Powell picked up the details of the event and manipulated them was, and still is, criminal. Clearly, this was a personal matter for Powell – an agency official who is also considered a public service official but rarely, if ever, acts like one.
