1200 Dogs Killed Due To Distemper Outbreak In Wyoming

A sad day for all these dogs that had to be killed due to an outbreak of distemper at the Beaver Creek Kennel in Kansas this week. The breeder Jeff Fortin said he had no choose as this is a highly contagious disease that was confirmed by a pet store that he had sold the dogs to.
