Pet detective hits New Orleans

By Verity Murphy
BBC News, New Orleans



Susan has been rounding up pets in the flood-hit St Bernard's Parish
On an ordinary day Susan Klages is a police officer in the state of Oregon, but these are far from ordinary days and right now Susan is a pet detective.

Along with other volunteers from America's Humane Society, she is searching the streets of some of New Orleans' most damaged neighbourhoods looking for the many pets and animals abandoned in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

"For the people who have lost everything getting back the pet they thought was lost is such a joy, you can't even imagine how happy those people are when their animals are returned," Susan said.

The Humane Society has more than 300 people out on the roads and floodwaters of Louisiana and Mississippi joining in the hunt.

4. I seem to have a big soft spot in my heart for the helpless!
I wish we could do more to ease the suffering. Animals have feelings too!
