Latest on Sheridan, Aquarium

Posted by Greg Hambrick on Mon, Apr 23, 2007 at 4:41 PM

In a story last fall about Internet activists, I interviewed Toni Zotto, a former employee of James Island veterinarian Thomas Sheridan. She runs a web site that notes past accusations of abuse and mistreatment by Sheridan. Earlier today, she called to alert me to a Columbia City Paper (no relation) story about an upcoming state board hearing regarding Sheridan’s treatment of an exotic bird.

She also said that she had noted an advertisement by the South Carolina Aquarium for a new veterinarian. The aquarium has stood by Sheridan, who the facility has contracted as a part-time vet. It turns out the two events are unrelated. Aquarium spokeswoman Beth Nathan says the facility is looking for a full-time vet as part of a new strategic plan that will include an expanded animal health program and increased veterinary research regarding sea turtles and other animals. The aquarium will also begin work later this year on a centralized medical care facility. —Greg Hambrick
