It is bad enough when people take unwanted pets to a shelter and leave them there. One so-called mother, Nikia Smith, in Georgia actually took her three children to a Department of Family and Children Services office and left them there! Smith told the staff, she just didn’t want them anymore.
The children were ages six, twelve, and fourteen. Since it was at the end of the day, the staff urged Smith to come back the next day, and they could talk. Instead, Smith left her kids in the lobby and walked out.
Marietta Police Officer Brittany Wallace said that the staff called Smith and warned her that if she didn’t return for her kids, she could be arrested. Smith admitted she would rather go to jail than have the kids back. How heartbreaking for those children.
