Sheep girl euthanized

Sheep girl was euthanized. She never got up after, at least, four full days of being down. She had to have her bladder emptied with a catheter and didn't eat, pee or poop today. It's a mystery as to what's wrong with her as she had so many different symptoms that could indicate a myriad of different things. We're having a necropsy done, maybe that will reveal something.

I'm so sorry we couldn't help her. I'm even sorrier that it's unlikely her owner will face any charges.

At least she was lucky to die with dignity. Still sorry though. :/

Is anyone going to see if her owner could face charges? I assume ALDF would take on a case like this, especially if there's the potential for saving the other sick sheep in the herd. :(

Thanks.

We're going to talk to the director at sac county and see if anything can be done legally. We can't press charges but they could bring it to the da and see if anything can be done. I don't know, though. Contacting ALDF isn't a bad idea but we'll talk to the shelter first.

Bleh. People suck majorly.
