A.J. Montgomery, of Beaufort County Animal Control, releases feral cats at the former Pepper's Porch restaurant in Bluffton on Friday with the assistance of volunteer Stephanie Brumley. Beaufort County officials are discussing when control of the Beaufort County Animal Control could change hands. Sheriff P.J. Tanner wants the six deputies assigned to the shelter to become part of a new program bringing School Resource Officers to elementary schools. Beaufort County Council is preparing to post three job ads for Code Enforcement officers to talk their place, according to deputy administrator Bryan Hill. Hill said the hires won't cost the county extra because of vacant positions. In the meantime, shelter director Tallullah Trice is training new people how to handle duties, such as trapping feral cats, that deputies took care of in the past.
