I want to apologize to all of you who read my new blog. It would appear to me that I created it a little prematurely. While I do state in the "About Me" section that I am a 4th year veterinary student, I won't officially be until May 6th. I've been uber-busy cranking out my last assignments and finals of the semester/my life, then I will be away for the next week on my miniature summer vacation. Afterwards though I shall be rocking the vet medicine 1st hand and will be posting all my triumphs and hardships quite frequently. Stay tuned! :)
In the meantime, I try to keep up to date on what matters in the animal world and will post stuff on here every now and then that I find interesting. Take this article for example which highlights a critical issue in today's animal world :P. To be honest, I just assumed cockfighting was illegal everywhere; that is, until I came to veterinary school and had this question on an exam in my first semester.
"Cockfighting is legal in Virginia so long as there is no wagering or gambling of any form associated with the event." True/False
At that point in time it was legal in Virginia, and I can proudly say that I will be one of the last people who can say they had an exam question about the legality of cockfighting. My favorite part of the article above is the veterinarian talking about the argument against banning the "sport". Part of the culture? Get out of here. If anyone here from Louisiana or New Mexico happens to read my blog, can you validate this? or on the other hand, further the doctors belief that "cultures" change?
