Animals found in abandoned U-Haul truck
Animals found in an abandoned U-Haul truck in Florida are now in the hands of law enforcement. The Pasco County Code Enforcement, Hernando Sheriff’s Office, and Hernando County Animal Services officers responded to a report that the U-Haul had been parked in the parking lot of a Publix store. When they entered the truck, they found dozens of cats and dogs in plastic containers. They were later euthanized. Fortunately, the driver was not in the car with the animals, but she has been arrested.
The state’s wildlife officials are investigating the incident to determine the source of the animals. They believe that some of the animals are exotic and are illegal to keep as pets in Massachusetts. However, a Massachusetts U-Haul rental contained four coatis, which are long-nosed raccoons native to South America. One of them escaped. Other animals found in the U-Haul were a rabbit, two chinchillas, two rats, and three Quaker parrots. The owners of the U-Haul are under investigation, as well as the person connected to the incident.
An investigation revealed that the U-Haul truck was rented to Frances Evans, a woman who had been found guilty of animal hoarding. Authorities had ordered her to turn over the animals to authorities. It’s not clear whether the animals were found inside the truck, but the animals could have been there for a while.
Deputies could not trace the owner of the abandoned U-Haul truck and were unsure if the animals were abandoned or owned. However, they found that the owners were unable to pay for proper care for the animals. Despite the animals’ poor health and socialization, Evans could not afford to care for the animals. The animals were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The Browns had packed up all their belongings and moved to the Tampa Bay area. However, a mistake caused U-Haul to repossessed the rental truck. They were able to recover the five boxes of belongings, which they were grateful to receive. They also found several items that had been inside other boxes.
Company filed for bankruptcy
The parent company of U-Haul, the truck rental company, has filed for bankruptcy. The restructuring will allow the company to keep its name while keeping its shareholders in tact. The company is under the leadership of Edward J. Shoen, who owns 40% of the company. The parent company, Amerco, filed for bankruptcy in 2003 and emerged from the proceedings in March 2004. The filing won’t affect U-Haul’s operations.
The Sullivan family, which owns the company, painted many of the trucks orange as part of their legacy. The Sullivans wanted to hand the business down to their children, and had them learn how to run the company. They joked that the orange paint was in their veins.
As their ownership of the company increased, Shoen decided to hand it down to his four eldest sons. However, the sons questioned his investment in U-Haul Center stores. They felt that their investment was not benefiting the company. According to the lawsuit, the sons believed the investments weren’t helping the company.
Employees squabble over company’s future
A family feud and internal squabble over the future of U-Haul caused the company to file for bankruptcy. The former CEO, L.S., suffered from a manic-depressive disorder and killed himself in 1999. There were also allegations of financial mismanagement, which led the company to file for bankruptcy. However, U-Haul has since emerged from the turmoil and survived its last major lawsuit.
The family business began with Shoen’s own family in 1945. The Shoen family’s sons, Sam and Michael, joined the company as executives in the 1970s. Sam left a medical career to join the company and Michael gave up his law practice.
