WOODBRIDGE - Woodbridge police have relocated about two dozen livestock animals from the town's animal shelter to a permanent home at a private local farm.

The move has upset animal control officers and residents. 

The police department oversees the Woodbridge District Animal Shelter. Police say finding the animals a home was long overdue, while opponents say it was too abrupt and the public had no input.

According to police, there is no state law requiring adoption paperwork for animals other than cats and dogs.

There is no word yet on whether the animals will be returned to the shelter.
