OREGON SUPREME COURT GRANTS ADDITIONAL STAY OF EXECUTION
SALEM, OR (FEB 12, 1998)

Nadas, a collie-malamute scheduled to die FEB 17, 1998 for chasing horses in
violation of an archaic Oregon state law, has been granted a temporary stay
of
execution by the Oregon Supreme Court.

In an order signed today by Presiding Justice W. Michael Gillette,
the court granted a motion filed by Robert Babcock, attorney for dog owner
Sean Roach.

The motion would prevent Jackson County from executing the dog until the
Court
formally announces a decision on reconsideration of its earlier refusal to
hear the case.

Without the stay, Jackson County could have euthanized the dog next Tuesday.
The stay will be a moot point if the Jackson County Commissioners finally
agree to permit Nadas to be adopted by Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in
Kaneb,
UT. The Jackson County commissioners will discuss this option at a meeting
at
4PM PST today. However, it is expected that dog owner, Sean Roach, will be
required to drop his lawsuit against county officials and to agree to other
conditions in exchange for Nadas' life being spared.
