Diplomatic Dog Dilemma


Australia's chief diplomat in Taipei, Taiwan, said in August that he was suing local veterinarian Yang Dong-sheng for fraud because Yang backed out of euthanizing diplomat Kevin Magee's sick, 10-year-old dog. Instead, Yang "rescued" the dog, now thriving after he patiently treated her. Magee's lawsuit claims, in essence, that his family vet recommended euthanization, that he'd paid for euthanization and that "Benji" should have been put down. Yang said the fee Magee paid was for "medical care" and not necessarily euthanization. (Benji, frolicking outside when a reporter visited, was not available for comment.)
