Tainted pet food allegedly kills cats

The deaths of several dogs and cats have led to a recall of pet food made at an Ontario plant. The food, which looks like chunks of beef in gravy, is made by Menu Foods but sold in cans and foil pouches under dozens of different brand names, including Safeway, Wal-Mart, Kroger and PetSmart. Premium brands Iams, Eukanuba and Nutro are also part of the recall. The tainted food has caused liver failure that's led to the deaths of at least 10 cats and dogs nationwide. Roxanne Patterson of Herkimer had three cats. Two died over the weekend. She says her third cat cannot be saved, and according to her veterinarian may be euthanized within days. She believes their deaths were caused by the tainted food.  Go to full article

Plattsburgh women cap champ season, St. Lawrence Saints fall short

This weekend was the best of times and the worst of times for North Country hockey fans. The Plattsburgh State women's Cardinals won the Division 3 NCAA tournament on their home ice at Stafford Arena. They beat Middlebury two goals to one to cap an undefeated season. The story wasn't so bright for St. Lawrence University. On Friday afternoon, the men's and the women's teams were playing at the exact same time with the exact same results. The men's Saint's lost four goals to zero in an upset loss to Quinnippiac at the ECAC tournament in Albany. They went on to beat Darmouth for third place. The women's Saints also lost four goals to zero, facing the Wisconsin Badgers in the semifinals at the Frozen Four tournament in Lake Placid. That defeat that eliminated them from the tournament. As Brian Mann reports, the powerhouse Wisconsin team went on to claim the national championship for a second year in a row.  Go to full article
