BELLEFONTE — Two women are suing a central Pennsylvania animal hospital for $300,000 in damages after they say valuable semen samples from championship-caliber show dogs were destroyed.
A civil jury trial is under way in Bellefonte this week in the case against Mount Nittany Veterinary Hospital.
Attorney Louis Glantz, who represents Linda Blackie and another woman, says the samples thawed and were destroyed in May 2010 due to a mistake at the veterinarian's office.
The Centre Daily Times reports the case began Wednesday and a jury must now determine how much those samples were worth.
Animal hospital attorney Robert Mix says even the best show dogs can produce poor samples for breeding and that the quality of the samples in question was “from moderately good to extremely poor.”
