DETAIL or REFER - Maggie, the injured cattle dog, is released from Loomis Basin Veterinary Hospital with her owner, John Reader, of Nevada City, after surgery and treatment from being hit by a car during a cattle drive three weeks ago. The driver of the vehicle was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon, cruelty to animals and vandalism. Over the past few weeks members of the community donated enough money to cover her treatment. Her prognosis is very good. July 6, 2011
