Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Animal lovers who've considered becoming an animal control officer may have had their minds changed by a tweet-along staged yesterday by the Arvada Police Department's animal management department. Incidents in what appears to have been a normal day included a roadkill pickup, a corpse recovery, a neglected pet that couldn't be saved and more. Granted, it wasn't all tragedy, but the circle of life's last phase is on view plenty of times in the photo-filled tweet string below.
