Kansas warns of man pretending to be veterinarian

ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Board of Veterinary Examiners is seeking information about a man who is reportedly impersonating a veterinarian.

The board says 49-year-old Danny Thomas is using the alias Chase McKnight. KWCH-TV reports the man treated several horses and has done free spay and neutering services in Cowley County.

He’s described as a white man, 5-foot-4, 160 pounds, with blue eyes and black hair.

Kansas Agriculture Department spokesman Jason Walker says Walker said Thomas has never been a licensed veterinarian in Kansas, and no one named Chase McKnight has ever had a license either.

Thomas was sentenced to prison for several computer crimes he committed in 2009 and was released in June of 2015.

Wichita police are also investigating the case.
