I'm a regular Animal Cops viewer. Can you please tell me a little about Lt. Michael Scott?
—Y. Metcalf, El Centro, Calif.
Lt. Scott was born and raised in San Francisco, where he attended college and worked in retail sales before joining the city's Department of Animal Care and Control. The Animal Planet series Animal Cops: San Francisco follows ACC investigators and police officers on some of the 10,000 calls they receive each year, including animal-related emergencies, dog-fighting reports and animals in distress. "It's my goal to educate people and to prevent animal suffering," says Scott, who comes home to shower affection on his own pet, an adopted Maltese poodle mix named Mango.
