Scope and content

News item. (1) Miracle is being taken off antibiotics, says spokesman for team of three veterinarians. Her condition has been fully assessed by these specialists, and she is well on the way to complete recovery from gunshot wounds and internal bleeding from a possible ulcer. (2) Second part of this reel is from the period when Miracle was brought down from Campbell River to Oak Bay Beach Hotel for intensive treatment in the hotel's salt-water pool. At this time, the vets were not optimistic about her recovery. They barely saved her from dying on the bottom of the pool. One of the vets, Dr. J. Hyman of New York City, is interviewed. He was in the northwest on a fishing trip when Miracle was first found. Sealand staff member explains that once Miracle shows rapid improvement, she will be moved to the Sealand pool beside Haida for company. The reel ends with an interview with the man who found Miracle.
