FOX 8 Defenders: Michot and animal waste complaints

A Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals spokesperson tells FOX 8, Chris Michot is not following a court order. Ken Pastorick with DHH said health inspectors obtained a warrant to inspect and test Michot's property near Thibodaux after several sewage complaints filed against him.

Neighbors have filed sewage complaints about animal waste flowing off Michot's property, but DHH says on at least two inspection visits in December, the fence and gate around Michot's home was padlocked so they couldn't gain access.

DHH says it's in the process of going back to court to ask Michot to show cause as to why they're not being allowed on site. In a separate case, Michot heads to trial in March on charges he violated the animal noise code and animal cruelty.
