When nine sheep disappeared from their pasture in Yellow Springs, Ohio, last month, there were no volunteer-organized search parties. No flashlights waving about in the darkness, no ears cocked to hear a distant bleat, no portraits on milk cartons. The months-long battle between the impassioned activists who hoped to save the animals, and Antioch College—who planned to slaughter them—will end on Saturday with a three-hour vigil in honor of the lambs. Because the animals are dead. We think. It all began last spring when the then-baby lambs were let loose in their solar-panel-adorned meadow on the campus of the private liberal arts school. The lambs were part of a “living laboratory” and sustainability program on the Antioch College Farm, and the school said that—once they matured into sheep—they would feed students in the nearby dining hall.

Good news for animal lovers. Ahmedabad is all set to get its first dedicated animal hospital run by the municipal corporation. The AMC will be putting up the proposal in the upcoming 2020-21 budget. The amount to be allocated for the hospital and the venue are yet to be decided. The hospital will function 24x7; plans are also on the anvil to rope in two mobile ambulances to bring in animals for emergency medical care. The hospital will admit all animals and pets including cows, dogs, cats and others. Earlier, there had been no provision for treating animals in AMC-run hospitals. Till date, people have had to rely on NGOs to get medical treatment for pets and stray animals. Now, they can call up AMC vans once the hospital is set up. Paresh Patel, Health Committee Chairman, AMC said, “We are planning to set up the hospital for animals in the city. A proposal will be put up in the 2020-21 budget. Officials are deciding on the allocation of the budget and the venue.” The … [Read more...] about Ahmedabad to get its first AMC-run animal hospital
