In Corpus Christi, TX, a married couple had been working as the city pound’s veterinarians for the last 4 years. They complained to those in charge about unacceptable conditions including lack of worker supervision in the kennels and animals sitting in filth:
“There was no water in any of the water bowls they weren’t just empty they were dry. The dogs were not fed consistently they’d feed them clean their cages put the food bowls on top of the cage where the dog couldn’t get to them,” says Dr. Tom House.
The problems were ongoing so the vets kept complaining. Earlier this month they requested a meeting with Assistant Police Chief Mark Schauer, who is in charge of the pound, to discuss these issues. The next day, they were fired. The city explained they are “going in a different direction”.
I believe that direction is commonly called DOWN.
