So, you were at a test/trial with a hundred dogs entered.
One of the dogs entered comes down with parvo.
Is the owner obligated to report it?
Is a media type there obligated to report it?
One dog in a hundred entered isn't significant. BUT WOULDN'T YOU WANT TO KNOW?
Information is not a bad thing. Information is not a red state/blue state thing. Information is not right/left.
Information is information. You take it from there.
