A6 May 12, 2011 VALLEY Animal shelter gives a hoot, helps save lives of baby owls Five owlets dropped off at Quincy Animal Shelter BY TAMMARA GREEN writer@ qvpr.com Debra Latimer arrived to a hoot of a surprise last Thursday morning at the animal shelter, when her assistant opened a cardboard box to find five baby barn owls in it. "They were terrified, and it looked as if they had been in there for almost two days. Three of them seemed fine, while two were in critical condition," said Latimer. Although she didn't quite know what to do, Latimer went into action, feeding them with some meat she bought from Akins, and trying to get them to drink a little. Saving dogs and cats was something she was familiar with, and this was a very unique situation. Latimer's first call was to a place in Lynwood called Paws Wildlife Rescue. "They help with over 100,000 different ani- mals that may be sick, injured or abandoned ,and they release them into the wild," said Latimer. The veterinarian for the organization, Dr. Huckabee, instructed Latimer on how to hy- drate the owls and what to do to care for them. Huckabee informed Latimer that the sick baby owls needed to be in an environment that could be kept at a constant temperature of about 85 degrees, and it needed to be dark. Latimer was also instructed to give fluids under the skin for the owls. "I had given sub-dermal fluids to dogs and cats before, but the skin of the owl is like paper, and I had to be very careful. I was extremely nervous," said Latimer. Lynwood Paws Wildlife Rescue gladly came over immediately upon sensing the urgency of the situation, and the owls were placed in their capable hands that afternoon and transported back over to Lynwood. Latimer and her children ,Alexandria, Gabriel and Isabel were excited to see the owls. "We are so glad we were able to save them. We have had a raccoon and a skunk here. The kids have been able to see different wildlife," she said. License: Continued from front page to do so as a matter of prin- ciple." The Department of Health became involved in Comu-La- bat's case shortly after he was fired from Quincy Valley Medi- cal Center in 2009 for refusing to go through the Washington Physicians Health Program, which evaluates and treats physicians privately for mental or physical conditions so they can return to their jobs. Cornu-Labat himself sub- mitted his case to the Depart- ment of Health and asked it to rule on the matter, stating that he would abide by the state's findings. On Sept. 24, 2010, the de- partment ruled that he would be required to undergo a mental- health examination in order to practice medicine. Coruu-La- bat said that he did not undergo the examination, which would be paid for by the state, as a matter of principal. That ol?der was upheld by the Medical Quality Assurance Commission when it issued the ruling on April 29. "The respondent's license to practice as a physician and surgeon inthe state of Wash- ington is suspended, pending his completion of the examina- tion," the order stated. Comu-Labatdid not respond until well after our deadline. His response in on page A4.
