4:03 pm
implemented ceasefire, and we've seen a slight decline in homicides so far this year. last year at this time we had over 41 homicides. today we sit at 35 so it is progress and it is because of the ceasefire strategy. it is because of communities partnership and stepping up right now in this moment. chief armstrong says the department plans to once again increased police patrols this weekend. the chief adds that despite being short staff, he's encouraged that ongoing hiring efforts and the departments to academies will soon boost their staffing. petaluma police are searching for suspects in a fight that led to gunfire downtown last night, officers responded to water street near east washington at about 8 15 last night. they say witnesses told them a group of at least four people were involved in a fight, and witnesses reported hearing at least one gunshot. about a half an hour later to people arrived at the hospital. one had a gunshot wound and the other had a head injury. both of the victims are expected to survive
4:04 pm
opening day for the oakland a's . it's monday night, and fans won't be the only ones apparently in the stands. coliseum has been overrun. by feral cats, who apparently saw the pandemic years as an opportunity to grow their ranks . ktvu zan, rubin explains, authorities said a meeting to discuss that very issue today and say they plan to deal with the cats and it is working and take it away. yeah well, they're plan is just working slowly. it involves spaying and neutering the adults and adopting out the kittens. but as far as the coliseum goes, the aids will have to share it with these feral cats for the foreseeable future. they've been lurking in the dugouts, feeding in the dumpsters and well reproducing the oakland coliseum has been overrun by feral felines on the coliseum site we're talking about, probably 50 or so cats and i always say, if you see 50 there are going to be more at least another 50 to 100 nearby,
4:05 pm
according to oakland animal services. and so they, along with island cat resources and adoption, have begun to trap and fix the kitties before releasing them back at the coliseum. they've been taking these photos as they do, largely, um it's in their best interest to stay where they are. but we want to get everybody spayed and neutered so that they stop reproducing. at a meeting today , colosseum officials discussed the issue, saying the cats have had an unintended benefit. no one has seen a rat there in years. they plan to continue the trap neuter return program indefinitely. we think we will get this under control. we can live with the cats. uh, they do good work. but we need. to deactivate some of them. we don't need quite as many as we've got on duty right now. it seems at least for now, the coliseum cats will become part of the obvious at a xgames at a president dave saville says he's mostly okay with that, as long as they stay off the field during the actual game, that's the one thing but you never know
4:06 pm
that famously happened back in the nineties. prompting then manager tony larussa to adopt the cat and start an animal shelter. as for the current crop, animal services says only the kittens will be fit for adoption. the first letters are currently at a foster home. but the plan to do their part in organizing coliseum kitten adoption events when the time is right, it's happened before. i think there are many more people who are going to be positively impacted by these kittens, and we look forward to doing our part and ensuring that they find families to be with. officials with animal services say this will not be a quick fix. they've only spayed and neutered about 20 cats. so far, no word on when the kitten adoption events might start, they say. in fact, this is just the beginning of kitten season, frank. and you were there all day. was it difficult to find them or do they? do they hide a little bit? so we have not seen them ourselves so that
4:07 pm
we have been looking, but we were able to get a lot of those photos of the cats from some of the animal services people who have been out here, trapping them. and so you know, they say they're all over, including sitting on the golf carts in the morning as if ready to go out on rat duty. frank well, wait till 40,000 hit coliseum on monday. that should be interesting. and ruben live for us in oakland. thank you, anne. or california is delaying it's planned coronavirus vaccine mandate for schoolchildren. the plans are on hold because the fda hasn't yet given full approval for the covid-19 vaccine for children. that means california will not be requiring students to get the vaccine until at least next summer. for now, each school district is able to create its own policies. the oakland unified school district is planning to require all students 12 years and older to get the covid-19 vaccine starting in august. so i'm glad that the open schools are doing the right
4:08 pm
thing. you know, i think it would be great if all the schools across the state can do that. but i'm glad to hear that oakland's doing it. health officials say there's less urgency to vaccinate students compared to last fall when covid case rates were higher and the vaccine for children was not available. now many children have received the vaccine under the emergency use authorization. today oakland unified school district announced it will continue to require masks indoors through the april 24th. after that date, mass indoors will only be strongly recommended the district move to optional outdoor masking about a month ago, but said at the time it was still working to figure out a plan for when indoor masking would become optional. oakland is one of the few districts to still have an indoor mask mandate in place after the state department of health said schools could switch to strongly recommending you wear a mask inside. coming up this weekend is almost here, and we've got a new episode of the issue is to talk about after the

mountain of obstacles and other things, but nevertheless we got him. we got this money. this is $72 million project, and then when you add in the services that we're going to get, we have open housing authority which has given us 39 vouchers, so 39 of the 79 units will be available for people who qualify for section eight, but they don't have to have section eight. the bottom floor of the housing development at will contain four businesses, a restaurant, fitness center, neighborhood market and a clothing store. all will be run by people in the community. the bar board appears to be leaning towards keeping a $40 million construction contract in place despite an appearance of conflict of interest there. inspector general's report out last week found that a bart manager approved the dollar contract with a construction firm where their spouse and sibling both were. the manager, who is not identified. also formerly worked for that company, the report says. bart may have to avoid the remaining $27 million on that

4:20 pm
gonna be talking with michael shellenberger, who is a candidate for governor of california. he's challenging gavin newsom. he's a berkley resident. he wrote the book sicko talking about problems with homelessness in the bay area. he has used to be a progressive democrat, and now he's running as a nonpartisan as an independent. he says. there needs to be big changes when it comes to homelessness. here's some of what he had to say. we care about everybody in such a beautiful thing. it's why so many of us live here. it's why i came here. we have such a liberal progressive values but were being taken advantage of people are coming here from out of state. they're breaking our laws against drug crimes. public campaign public defecation. people are mentally ill. there's suffering from a drug addiction. these aren't homeless encampments. they're open drugs scenes. we have to do what every civilized nation has done in the world, including very progressive ones like the netherlands. but all of europe really, which is we need to get people to care they need we
4:21 pm
can't let people live in these open air drug scenes people being raped. people are dying. people are being killed. people are overdosing. so we need to enforce laws. we need you to enforce laws against public camping. that means we need universal shelter. but you ultimately need carrots and sticks. so he wants to create something that he would call cal psych, which would be a system that would be run by the state that would basically take over a lot of the mental health drug addiction issues for the state. um obviously, it's a tough order sort of going up against governor newsom in this campaign . he hopes to be the one to survive. you know, frank, the way that the ballot works. the top two finishers from the june primary will then advance to a runoff in november. he's hoping to be one of them and to be able to have a longer conversation about this, he says on the issue of homelessness. specifically he thinks the governor is vulnerable. alex shellenberger ran as a democrat. i believe in 2018. we know what happened four
4:22 pm
years ago. but did he get any traction with the democratic party? no he finished ninth. okay very successful. and then he backed kevin faulkner in the recall. he didn't do all that. well so you know it's going to be a challenge for him. but he's got a big platform. now hundreds of thousands of followers online he was just on joe rogan's podcast for, like, three hours. so there is, you know some people that are getting behind this message as well. and it's a different time now than it was even a few years ago. so we're talking to him. we'll also be talking about that explosive san francisco chronicle story about dianne feinstein's memory with tall copen of the san francisco chronicle as well this weekend full. yeah, we've been on that as well. okay we look forward to the program this weekend. have a have a happy easter and a good weekend. thank you, alex. yeah and happy passover for those celebrating as well. absolutely and you can catch the issue is right here on ktvu. it airs sunday morning at 6 30 right

owny show affection to their animals specifically kisses researchers at the university of lisbon in portugal and the royal veterinary college in london. say a kiss from your pet might show unconditional love. but it could also be spreading antibiotic resistant bacteria, according to the study, pets and humans in the same home often share antibiotic resistant strains of e. coli and other bacterial infections. it's really hard not to accept a lick from your little furry friend, right? but think about the hygiene there. they like to look in places where the feces comes , and then they're looking you right afterwards there are
4:26 pm
certain antibiotic resistance. bacteria like e. coli. and those were found in the stool. of the animals, dogs, mainly but also in their pet owners. the research didn't study the exact transmission of the shared bacteria or whether it originated the pets or humans. scientists say it is important to take steps for good hygiene when in contact with your pets, speaking of dogs that warning for you dog owners out there if you're planning on being outdoors, hiking around this weekend to protect your furry friends from what they call salmon poisoning disease. it is potentially fatal condition only seen in dogs after they eat certain types of raw or cooked salmon or trout. this afternoon , i spoke with jason julian. he is the senior environmental scientists. at the california department of fish and wildlife . about what to look out for. tell us about salmon poisoning disease. i've never heard of it. and if you got a dog you should know about it, right? absolutely yeah. salmon poison disease is something that occurs naturally
4:27 pm
in our environment that's transmitted through like a bacteria type organism. um through a parasitic flatworms in fish. and so we need to be extra careful with our dogs around. um you know, consuming raw or even cold smoked salmon or trout. is it an issue with like cats, other animals humans, or is it just dogs? just dogs? you know it doesn't affect humans or really other other pets. um, primarily just dogs. and is it only happened in northern california into the streams? it's common throughout northern california and the waterways around northern california. but in other parts of the country, no, i don't know about other parts of the country. but but at least here locally, um mostly only found in northern california. how can we haven't heard much about it? ah, i don't know. it's not a common thing. that's uh, that's um, you know, put out in the media tampa that's probably not a really
4:28 pm
good answer for this. what can you find it in, like dog food and stuff like that? are we just talking about raw fish carcasses ? trout that kind of probably just found in raw fish and carcasses found in the natural environment, want people to be aware and that that could be a concern for dogs that come in contact with? i did fishing might find along the shoreline or trouser came and that's when my capture. talk about some of the symptoms say your dog gets ahold of some of this. what should you be on the lookout for? and what can you do to help out your pet? yeah it's really similar to distemper. so a lot of it includes, you know things like elevated body temperature loss of appetite. vomiting goes but other symptoms and if anytime your dog is experiencing symptoms like that, you should definitely be them to prevent to be evaluated. it is treatable, though, if you catch it early. yep. but if it's in your dog for a week or two, it could be fatal. right can be fatal. i'm unsure of the time frame for
4:29 pm
that, but but it's definitely something you want to address early. and it is a bacteria that's found in a flatworm. is that what it is correct? it's a bacteria that's found in the flatworm that in the flatworm is a parasite parasite to salmon and trout. so it gets inside your dog and starts doing damage , i guess. all right, so if you're out hiking or around a stream or a lake in the local, uh, just enjoying the outdoors, just be cautious if you got your dog running around alright, that is jason julian. we appreciate your time, jason and, uh, thanks so much for the heads up because i imagine a lot of people are gonna be out and about this weekend. yep no problem. thank you. thank you. coming up next good friday. celebrations are happening all across the country and across the world. we're going to take a look at how different cities are commemorating this holy day. filling up the grocery and easter basket will cost you more this year. i'm lauren blanchard this year. i'm lauren blanchard in washington, the latest

in front of our costume rack, and so much of this piece has been about my love of fabric and our our companies love of fabric and also a research into the ecological impacts of the modern fashion industry as it mixes with our ancestral sort of lineage of fabric making, knitting, weaving, crocheting sewing. so in that way, it really taps my own grandmother's story. and so many of our, um ancestors who actually make fabric and so we're just kind of weaving in all of these threads. into our loom. and when you come to see a band loop performance on the side of a wall you see that our ropes are stretched down the wall like a vertical warp. and um, i dance we've side to side in a sort of pendulum. and so as i was conceptualizing this work and looking up to the
4:42 pm
walls that we dance, and i was actually seeing them as looms. so that's how the name came to be. talk a little bit about what went into the preparation. yeah absolutely. so we have a consistent dance practice. of course, all of our dancers are professional contemporary dancers who learned to use gear climbing gear to actually take our dance on the side of the building. so as we were doing that rehearsal process, interspersed with that were workshops in fabric making in nigerian sewing techniques from our nigerian costume designer who's actually from nine generations of sewers from from nigeria. his family has been making clothes since the 15 hundreds and, um so we had workshops with him. that's not traditional dance research, but has a physicality to it. you know, sewing has a repetitive motions. weaving has a repetitive motion. so these motions of these crafts actually fed into our choreographic process. and what do you hope
4:43 pm
that the viewers take away after they they see this piece? what is it that you hope they take away? i hope that you know it sparks some memory or some appreciation, some honor for the viewers own ancestors and ancestral fabric line, and i hope it opens up some awareness about what the ecological impacts of fabric. are right now , you know not to feel guilty about our consumption habits. but in the spirit of celebrating fabric to have more awareness and maybe around our choices that we're making and how those choices will affect future generations. very exciting to see you with his performance today tomorrow. in oakland. thank you so much. militia australia, the artistic director for band alu. best of luck to all of you and your performance and thank you for joining us. thanks for having me. and that first performance at five pm right here in oakland's uptown we'll also this weekend you can celebrate some of the nation's
