Superior's mayor says he's "insulted" by rumors that a new facility to take in animals would be used for euthanasia.

After two years of conversation, Animal Allies announced on Wednesday they are cutting ties with Superior.

The city wants to build a new facility to take in animals and pair them with adoptive families.

But since yesterday, Mayor Bruce Hagen said rumors have been spreading on Facebook that it would be a kill shelter.

Hagen held a press conference Thursday to specifically dispel those rumors.

"Please, please, please dispel this crap that's going on out there about the fact that we're going to inject them to put them down at day seven," Hagen said. "It's just not going to happen."
