September 3, 2008–The Weather Channel is reporting about the big difference for pets during Hurricane Gustav and Hurricane Katrina. With Gustav, pet evacuations were a top priority for
emergency workers. Nobody wanted to see a repeat of the thousands of abandoned and lost pets during Hurricane Katrina. And also, one of the top reasons people in New Orleans had given for no evacuating, was that they didn’t want to leave their pets behind.
What do you think: Was the massive evacuation of pets and people from New Orleans the right thing to do?
