The Flathead County Animal Shelter reported a 9 percent euthanasia rate in 2010, a stark contrast to the 73 percent recorded in 1983 when the agency first began keeping statistics.

Cliff Bennett, shelter director, presented a chart to the board of health recently showing the annual intake of dogs and cats and rates of euthanasia fell dramatically from 1983 to 2010.

            Give credit where credit is due Mr. Bennett and powers to be employed by Flathead County who oversee animal control. Kirsten Holland was instrumental for the DRAMATIC decrease in the euth rate. No, she didn't do it by herself but she changed the whole program and the "business as usual". She deserves credit in this article and you should have taken the higher road and yes thanked her and mentioned her name. But, as usual, people like you don't take the higher road. Believe you me, people are watching to make sure you continue along the same path as Kirsten. Hats off to Trista also for bucking the "system" and doing the right thing. Mr. Bennett and county officials, you should hang your head that you didn't give credit where credit is due. Shame on you!!!!!!
