Haven't heard but I'm surprised someone hasn't simply put a tranquilizer in can food to knock her out and rescue her that way.

repeat: put tranquilizers in her food...damn I'm talking to deaf ears here. If animal control catches her, she's a goner

We were advised against random application of seditives - might kill her - tranq is an option - animal control gave up due to failed captures and locals feeding - traps did not work - this is a smart dog - seditives were tried - shes lucky to be alive, thankfully the 'do gooders' did not kill her - we organized the community and put this out there - the community called for experts - they are coming and this dog will be homed ASAP - Marleys will handle rehab. - It is easy to throw out easy soluntions when you dont educate yourself - anyone advocating for the sedating of ferrals is a danger to the animal. consult the experts. Thanks - James

I disagree with you James, vets use sedatives and anasthesia all the time - every day, administered according to weight and breed, I just watched a sedative rescue on u tube and is was so fast and easy and spared this poor pup of enduring cold, wet conditions and human danger, I don't throw out easy solutions, just care deeply for animals

Carol....vets use sedatives and anesthesia all of the time, YES, but the animals usually have already been caught and are in the vets' office. Sedating a loose animal is not always the best way to catch it. Depending on the specific situation, such as Roadie's, it has been determined by professionals, vets, etc. that since the previous attempt to sedate Roadie did not work, it would be extremely dangerous to go that route again.(Especially since she's so close to Stetson and could possibly run into traffic and get hit.) Trust me...her rescue team is methodically planning her safe rescue...soon, very soon!:)

so many of us have come to know and love Roadie and only want the best for her and it is soooo frustrating to see this rescue taking so long....especially in such bad weather - if the professionals could speed this along a little every one would be happy especially for Roadie.
