Why dogs are being euthanased by hospital in Indiana

A hospital in South Bend, Indiana is making it clear that dogs and cats are not welcome at the lawless town’s emergency animal hospital.

The South Bend Animal Care and Control Center, which is in a former coal mine, is forcing animals into its emergency animal ward after a police officer shot and killed an elderly woman last week.

The woman, who is white and had no visible injuries, was killed after an officer responded to a domestic violence call in the town.

The incident was captured on video and has gone viral.

The city is now requiring dogs and other animals to stay at the emergency animal shelter in the city’s industrial park, a move that has drawn widespread condemnation.

In a statement, the center said that it has “a number of dogs and a number of cats, both housed and on the street.”

“Unfortunately, this situation is not conducive to the care and well-being of animals, and we cannot continue to house and transport these animals,” the statement reads.

“In the event that we do not manage to house animals at this facility, we will consider euthanizing these animals and take appropriate steps to take the animals to the appropriate facility.”

Animal rights advocates say the decision by the South Bend animal care center to euthanize animals in the emergency ward violates the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The group has called for the emergency shelter to be closed down.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, an anti-hate group, has called on South Bend to shutter the animal shelter, saying the center is a “dangerous” venue for dogs.

“While it’s hard to argue with the harm inflicted on animals by this facility—especially when you’re not allowed to take care of them in your own home—it’s still shocking to see someone who cares for animals so little given the risk of euthanasia,” SPLC senior attorney Andrew Seidel said in a statement.

South Bend is located in Indiana’s fourth-largest city, with a population of about 14,000 people.

The state has seen a surge in the number of dog attacks in recent years, but that has been largely due to a rising number of people who use pet ownership as a means of self-defense.

In June, South Bend Mayor Jim Tate said he wanted to “bring the dog problem to a close” by building a dog-friendly community.

Bill Clinton to announce new policy on opioid prescriptions

President Bill Clinton will announce new policies Wednesday aimed at reducing the overdose death rate among adults and children, a senior White House official said.

The announcement will include a “pilot program” to curb opioid prescriptions and increase incentives for prescribers to stop taking the drugs, the official said, declining to be identified.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, also said the president would work with states to reduce opioid overdose deaths.

 Clinton’s announcement will come as lawmakers begin debating a bill that would expand Medicaid eligibility and increase opioid prescribing for some Medicaid recipients.

The bill is being pushed by Republican Rep. Tom Cole, who said the proposal could save lives by reducing the number of opioid deaths in the U.S. The legislation would also allow states to establish opioid overdose prevention programs and increase the opioid prescribing caps in Medicaid.

Clinton has said his administration would not allow states “to set their own overdose control strategies.”

The administration would also work with lawmakers to address the issue of opioid addiction and suicide, including expanding treatment for those who are already on medication, the White House source said.

In a statement, a spokesman for Cole called the announcement “an important step forward to ensure that our nation has access to the lifesaving treatment options that are proven effective in saving lives.”

Last month, Cole announced his bill to expand Medicaid for opioid-dependent adults.

On Wednesday, Cole said the new policy will “help prevent the death of tens of thousands of lives” by increasing the caps on prescription opioids and offering incentives for drug prescribors to stop prescribing them.

Cole is one of dozens of lawmakers who have called on the administration to roll back the new prescription drug coverage expansion, which would have been the largest expansion of Medicaid eligibility in the country.

“We have to make sure the people who are on Medicaid are getting the treatment they need to survive, and we’ve got to do it by increasing access to treatment, not by expanding coverage,” Cole said at the time.

A bill introduced in Congress last month that would have expanded Medicaid eligibility for opioid dependent adults would have added $1 billion to the federal deficit.
