Status of Wise Owl Animal Clinic disputed

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Assistant Attorney General Benjamin Abrams says local veterinarian Joel Joseph's has not been ordered to suspend operations at the Wise Owl Clinic, but rather that will be determined during a meeting of the Guam Board of Allied Health Examiners scheduled for today.   As we reported, earlier this week Joseph provided documents to KUAM that he faces an order to suspend his operations because he is alleged to be an imminent threat to the people of Guam.  The suspension order lists 16 different charges from incompetent and negligent practice of veterinary medicine, abusive billing, fraudulent cremations to violations of court orders.  Assistant AG Abrams says no suspension order has been signed by the board, but instead the AG's Office has submitted a blank order for the board's consideration at today's meeting scheduled for noon today. Joel has been in and out of court with the Guam Board of Allied Health Examiners for years, and says he's won almost every single case. He believes he' been harassed by the government.
