Admin - Delete Animal Flagged for Deletion


Animal files are added to this area when they are flagged for deletion on the top of the Edit Animal Details page.  They may have been added to the system in error or they are an identical duplicate record with no valid history.

NOTE:  This process is done when the records are to be removed completely from the system rather than merged with another duplicate existing record.  Use with caution, once this process is done the deleted records cannot be recovered. 

Only users with administrative access can process this function.

  2. Click on the Delete Animals Flagged For Deletion link.
