Here you go. From WAVE3, which is once again jumping on a story way too late:
WAVE 3 obtained a Metro Animal Services memo from May 30 stating that Gulbe and a man dropped off a dog in a zipped suitcase claiming she was just bit. The memo says an elderly beagle was inside that suitcase, and its temperature was 104.6 degrees.
WAVE 3 Troubleshooter Eric Flack asked Gulbe about what the memo claims.
- Flack: “When that dog did bit you did you put it in a suitcase?”
- Gulbe: “I did not put it in a suitcase, no.
- Flack: “Did a dog end up in a suitcase?”
- Gulbe: “I don’t know anything about the suitcase.
- Flack: “You dropped it off just like a regular dog?”
- Gulbe: “Actually I didn’t drop it off, someone else did.”
- Flack: “Did they put it in a suitcase?”
- Gulbe: “You know it’s an incident that really has nothing to do with anything. The dog is fine, the dog went home, so I don’t know why this is really a topic for discussion.”
Gulbe says this incident had nothing to do with why she has been on leave for about six weeks. She says that involves a health issue.
Haha. Right. Hilarious. Nothing to do with her “resignation” at all.
And on a more serious note, here’s something everyone needs to recognize about Greg Fischer’s decision to toss No Kill Louisville aside:

Let’s get one thing straight: No Kill Louisville’s bid was turned down because Patti Swope and Allison Woosley, Greg Fischer’s right-hand, pushed him to nix it. The Kentucky Humane Society is VEHEMENTLY against no-kill goals. It’s fucking ridiculous.
Let’s quit pretending it’s because of lack of experience. That’s most certainly not the case.
Greg will appoint a friend or donor, LMAS will continue to rot, Jim King will never sack up and do anything about it and folks like the Browns will just choose to sit on their hands and ignore the harsh realities surrounding this mess.
In late 2010 I told you folks that Greg Fischer was lying through his teeth about animal advocacy and no-kill promises. He has since proved every single thing I said true. Now do you folks believe me? Or are you going to continue getting taken for a ride? This marks the second time in six months that Fischer had to axe someone because of public embarrassment – despite years of trouble. That is not leadership.
It’s time for Metro Animal Services to shut down. Bulldoze the Manslick property. This city has no business caring for animals because it is incapable of doing so.
