Hearing for Gutierrez pushed back to August

A Roswell veterinarian must wait again for his disciplinary hearing.

The state veterinary medicine board has pushed proceedings for Leandro Gutierrez back to Aug. 24, 25 and 26.

They could have started tomorrow at the Roswell Holiday Inn. Now they take place in August in a Chaves County district courtroom.

The Roswell Daily Record reports the reason for the latest postponement remains unclear.

The hearing responds to 40 complaints filed against Gutierrez for how he ran Roswell Animal Control Services.

He managed Roswell’s animal shelter for a decade.
