Page 15 of the Albuquerque Office of Inspector General’s report describes an incident in which Pacheco was informed that, “The animal program analyst told the director it looked ‘bad’ to see dogs with patterns of biting people and killing other animals being adopted out or transferred. After reviewing the information on the spreadsheet, the director asked the behaviorist to stop gathering information for these dogs. The director decided the spreadsheet would not be given to the Office of Inspector General and that it would be better to provide just numbers. Any further information about the dogs should not be provided in a written report.
