Wild Animal Orphanage press conference at 3:30 today

Carol Asvestas, director of the Wild Animal Orphanage, is holding that promised press conference today at 3:30pm at the WAO's Leslie Road facility, where, she told the Current last week, she'll release autopsy reports for the recently deceased Bengal tiger, Vi Vi, as well as several cougars who've passed away at the facility in the past year. Asvestas sued archconservative muckraker R.G. Griffing for libel earlier this month over a series of highly critical articles he has published on his website, sanantoniolightning.com.

Loretta Ehrlund, the veterinarian who, according to the Associated Press, gave Vi Vi a clean bill of health in March, will be on hand to answer questions as well.
