AKC Board buzz re Dalmatian vote; 222 mutt pups flown in for Petsmart, shelter now quarantined; Drug-Immune Bacteria, Mary Wild probation revoked.
222 PUPPIES FLOWN IN FROM PUERTO RICO
to be transported to the PetSmart National Adoption day in
New York erupted with parvo Thursday. Florida
Shelter now quarantined, losing animals, needs more vet
techs and vets to assist. Contact Ronnie Graves 352-603-4249 or Connie Brooks 727-420-3731
if you can help.
BUZZ ON AKC BOARD MINUTES is that
the minutes as published are a waste of Gazette space. Prominent
figures in the fancy say "secrecy will no longer be tolerated."
Not everything is secrete; we do know that two board members actively
involved in Dalmatians, one a current parent club board member, refused
to recues themselves from the vote on allowing Dalmatian-Pointer 10th
generation descendents into the stud book. Conflict of Interest
charges flying like saucers over Phoenix.
NEW DRUG-IMMUNE BACTERIAL MUTATION now found in three states.
The NDM-1 gene alters bacteria, making them resistant to all known
antibiotics. According to Sept 11 news bulletins, the gene is believed to have mutated in India.
Since August, it has also been found in Australia, Canada, the
Netherlands, Pakistan, Sweden and the U.K. "The potential of NDM-1 to be a
worldwide public health problem is great, and coordinated international
surveillance is needed," says British medical journal Lancet.
MARY WILD PROBATION REVOKED Demonstrating the same lack of
responsibility that killed dogs in her care, she failed to show up for
community service. She also didn't bother keeping the date for a previous hearing but
even so, the judge did not remand her into
custody on Friday; he revoked her probation 9/10/10 but she's
free on bond. The judge heard Animal Control would not let her
work at the shelter as she was ordered to do, however, field reporter
Diane Lynch spoke with the prosecutor who said that is not so. "Wild had
specific dates to do her service and did not show up." Mary Wild's
Probation Revocation Hearing is set for October 15, 2010 and although
she could be remanded to serve her 8 year sentence, many
believe the lenient judge will again "let her off" with 30 to 90 days
jail time, if that much.
