LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Louisville's outgoing Metro Animal Services director did not get the job he was up for in Florida.

The newspaper Florida Today is reporting on its website that Gilles Meloche was not the pick for animal services director job in Brevard County. Leaders there approved another finalist for the job.

A group of animal advocates there had been campaigning against Meloche, in part because of his actions while heading Louisville's MAS. Some of those actions were highlighted in a WAVE 3 investigation and Metro audit this year.

Meloche has resigned his position in Louisville effective December 31.
