Listen to our Pet Show podcast! Our guest was Christy Counts, founder of the Oklahoma Humane Society. (She’s also one of our favorites!) She talked to us about the Humane Society’s first Doggy Derby, which sounds like a lot of fun. The money goes to their spay-neuter clinic. Christy also updated us on other Humane Society projects, like a new adoption center and a second spay-neuter clinic.
Here are links to our news stories for the week:
- - Authorities in Florida are using a net cannon to catch a band of monkeys that swam to freedom from a nature reserve. Yes. Really.
- - A Sea World dolphin died after an accidental collision with another dolphin during a show.
- - Big fun is planned for Dog Appreciation Day in Midwest City.
Also, we decided to skip Tail Tips this week and give a tribute to Bonzo, the patrol and narcotics dog that died last week. Read the story about Bonzo’s funeral here. Thanks to Bonzo and his handlers for all their work.
