The most commonly reported deaths for dogs in California fell between January and August of 1997 through December 30, according to state statistics. Between January and August 1991, the number plummeted 40 percent since the beginning of the epidemic, making it the least-reported state disease.

In an interview with Al Jazeera, Dr. Richard M. Kahan, clinical assistant professor of veterinary medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, who led the investigation, said he was surprised by the decline.

“It does go both ways and in many cases causes the most serious loss of life,” he said. “It is a public health emergency because dogs are dying. It is because of these factors that we know this disease is spreading.”

The number of reported dogs killed in California between January and August of 1997 declined by 19 percent, said Dr. Paul B.

The lawsuit, first filed in January of this year, details three dogs who were found at the Animal Hospital in Monroe, which is one of several on the list. Each dog was a single puppy, and was found to have a large collar over her upper abdomen. The four dogs had a collar on their back that was “a long sleeve shirt, dark colored and decorated with a number of collars,” according to the lawsuit.

But the lawsuits argue that when state police removed three of the dogs from the Animals Hospital last August, they were not trained to identify the dogs because their owners had taken the dogs off of the streets. A state veterinarian, Dr. Steven Shuman, is also a co-counsel for the suit.

“The Humane Society is saddened by the senseless and tragic occurrences,” Shuman said. “We cannot believe a dog would be picked on in the streets or placed in this way. Dogs have every right to be trained accordingly.”
