Contagious disease closes central Ohio animal shelter
Other headlines: P & G ramps up security after Greenpeace protest; Cleanup continues at Delaware derailment

  • P & G ramps up security after Greenpeace protest
  • Cleanup continues at Delaware derailment
  • Contagious disease closes central Ohio animal shelter
    A central Ohio animal shelter has temporarily closed to the public after a litter of puppies contracted a contagious viral disease and died.

    Director Lori Carlson says the Licking County Humane Society is closed while workers clean and disinfect the facility in Heath to rid it of any traces of parvovirus.

    The disease spreads through animal waste and direct contact between dogs. It can create intestinal and heart problems for the animals.

    WCMH-TV in Columbus reports another puppy that had the virus is responding to treatment.

    Carlson says the shelter is awaiting more test results before it decides when to reopen.


    P & G ramps up security after Greenpeace protest
    The world's largest consumer products company says it has tightened security at its Cincinnati headquarters after a breach that allowed an eye-catching protest by Greenpeace.

    Procter & Gamble says steps have been taken to improve security in the aftermath of Tuesday's protest in which nine environmental activists unfurled huge banners from the 12th floor of the corporate offices.

    The activists were protesting P&G’s use of palm oil from a supplier accused of destroying rain forests.

    The activists were released on bonds of $50,000 each after police arrested them on burglary and vandalism charges.


    Cleanup continues at Delaware derailment
    Norfolk Southern Corp. has reopened one of its two rail lines at the central Ohio site where nearly three dozen train cars derailed, spilling the corn they were carrying.

    Spokesman Dave Pidgeon said the second line was expected to reopen Thursday at the site in Delaware, north of Columbus.

    Pidgeon says 33 cars that derailed Tuesday and tipped over have been moved to the side and will be inspected and eventually removed from the scene one by one. He says an environmental contractor will work to remove as much of the corn as possible.

    The company isn't commenting on the cause of the derailment, which is under investigation. No one was hurt.

    The Tennessee-bound train that derailed had a total of 87 loaded cars and three locomotives.
