Meetup Members,

If you haven’t been following our Facebook postings or
Pet Station Message Board, you are missing all drama
surrounding Pet Station (Dearborn Heights). Authorities
have hit the store hard from all directions.

Last week, the pet store manager faced charges for selling
invasive species after a federal undercover investigation.
In April the pet store owner was charged with 37 counts
related to animals and the store 17 charges.

Justice is being served and PMA is following these cases closely.

Tomorrow, Ramzi Dakhlallah, will face Judge David A. Groner
at the Wayne County Circuit Court for a Disposition Conference.
He has one more chance to plead guilty or go to trial. If the
case goes to trail, one of our members will be testifying and
we will be joining her.

It has become very unpopular to sell live animals.
