I will only briefly change the subject from the Mason case as there is so much more to report, but on googling "Boks" one can find:
From the minutes of the June 3, 2006 Los Angeles Neighborhood Councils Senate meeting:
Edward Boks, General Manager of Los Angeles Animal Services, was the Guest Speaker.
He announced that pet adoption is up (130%) and pet euthanasia is down (35%) this year. He reported that New York became very "no-kill" when he was there.
In fact, dog/cat adoptions were up only 6.6% and euthanasia was down only 6.5%
Ed inflated the adoptions increase by 2,000%, and inflated the decline in euthanasia by 500%!
