Custody Battle Over Katrina Dogs

"Two dogs that survived Hurricane Katrina are at the centre of a custody battle between their old owners in New Orleans and their new ones in Florida. Master Tank and Nila were owned by Steven and Dorreen Couture of St. Bernard Parish. When Katrina destroyed their home last year, they had to evacuate and left the dogs at a local animal shelter. When the Coutures returned five weeks later, they learnt the dogs had been sent to a shelter near St. Petersburg, where they were put up for adoption. The Coutures came to Florida this week trying to get their dogs back, but the new owners have refused to return the animals." Reuters, Yahoo News Link to Article (last visited 6-28-06 NVS)
