It has been reported that 350 animals, cats and dogs, have been infected with ringworm. According to studies, ringworm is curable. There are many methods to cure ringworm, but may take a several months.
According to the Canadian Press Article
(http://news.ca.msn.com/canada/cp-article.aspx?cp-documentid=24206729) , OSPCA has decided that euthanization is the best solution because it will take several months to cure ringworm and have no time nor money for this treatment. It has been discovered that the outbreak was caused by human error. Protocols for identifying ringworm in the animals were not followed.
OSPCA should find an alternative, for example, raising money for treatment and taking time to treat the animals oppose to terminating them. There are many alternatives, they should find the best one. An animal should not loose their life because of a human error- it was not their fault, it was human error.
Sign your name, Save a Life.
We, the undersigned, call on the OSPCA (Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to eliminate the euthanization of the innocent animals infected with ringworm. Ringworm is curable, OSPCA needs to find another alternative, euthanization is not the solution.
