Operation Net-Vet Harlot

From Pharmalot:

A contractor for Novartis [pharmaceuticals] was charged with running a prostitution ring from his desk at the drugmaker in suburban New Jersey, while the actual 'services' were provided at a veterinarian clinic several miles away, according to the Somerest County, New Jersey, prosecutor’s office.

David Baker, 35, was arrested following a two-month investigation dubbed “Operation Net-Vet Harlot” that began with an ad on, offering “erotic services.”

Apparently one of the hookers was a veterinary assistant, and that's where clients would go to get their "veterinary examination."

No word yet on whether a free penicillin shot or worming was part of the program of activities.

I don't even know where to start on this one. Methinks sales of "skin" are far more profitable than vet medicine. But what a way to pay off your student loans...

If it was like most of the vet clinics you have been writing about, the client got a full blood work-up (Ka-ching!) and was sent home with a case of Science Diet canned food.
