Nasty Story From China
What's the Chinese government's solution to a rabies epidemic? Not making sure that all dogs are vaccinated, but snatching pets right off their leashes and beating them to death. I wish I was making it up but I'm not. Click here to read the story.
Pet lady: That's my role in the Miami Herald newsroom. I've been here since 1989, during which time I've had eight dogs, a ring-necked parakeet, a chicken, and a lizard named Lance. At the moment, I've got four dogs, two step-dogs, and two cockatiels. A native New Yorker, I came here from Louisville, Ky. I'm a graduate of the University of Arizona, and had a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard in 1988. I have written 233 stories containing the word 'dog' in the past 17 years.
