Caring for All Creatures

“I just knew that’s what I wanted to do,” says Dr. Richard Stribe (’74). “The vets that came out to the farm – they were probably some of the few educated people you saw on a farm.” After 39 years, Stribe is retiring as a veterinarian at the Webster City (Iowa) Veterinary Clinic and his local newspaper recently chronicled a career that included capturing an alligator, signing a health certificate for a camel and treating a lame ostrich.
