1. MAKE SURE TEXAS TECH ENDS LIVE CAT LABS FOR GOOD
For two decades, Tech University Health Science Center (TTUHSC) trainees
have driven plastic tubes down cats’ windpipes, causing them to bleed or
swell. Constant intubation can lead to collapsed lungs or death…
2. TIME SENSITIVE! NEW TRIAL: 11/24/09
NO JUSTICE FOR 7 DOGS WHO DIED INSIDE HOT VAN?
AN ANONYMOUS SOURCE SENT THIS UPDATE TO US:
From: firstname.lastname@example.org / Date: Fri, 20 Nov 2009
Nov. 24 is new trial date for Mary Wild, charged with killing 7 dogs in an
overheated van. This trial has been postponed several times and has dropped
off the press radar. Several sources recently confirmed that Mary Wild [the
dog handler who left 8 dogs overnight in a scorching van; all died but one]
will attend the Kankankee, IL dog shows Nov 28-29. This is AFTER her trial,
so does she expect to be let off free? Or does she know the trial will be
postponed again? I hope this case does not disappear into oblivion… Many
people are appalled at what happened but are afraid too speak out for fear
of retribution from the Wild family. Signed: A concerned dog lover
3. RELEASE CANCUN TIGERS FROM MISERY
In 2004, Hurricane Wilma ravaged Cancun, Mexico shops, including Pepe’s
Restaurant. When owner Gil Jose Juarez (Pepe) fled, he left his exotic wild
cats trapped in the rubble…later to live with feces, filth, rotten food…
4. MUTILATED SHARKS ARE THE MAIN INGREDIENT IN FIN SOUP
Until fishermen stop severing fins and dumping mutilated sharks at sea, many
species remain vulnerable to extinction. An estimated 73 million sharks are
killed annually — most sold for shark fin soup, an Asian delicacy…
5. SAVE GRAY WOLVES SO WE CAN SLAUGHTER THEM?
Montana opened fire on 9/15/09. Idaho’s race to kill its wolves began
9/1/09. Where is the intelligent strategy to sustain the very wolves that
Americans salvaged from near extinction?
6. ASK ASTRA ZENECA & GLAXOSMITHKLINE TO DROP HLS
Seven undercover investigations have exposed horrific HLS abuse: Technicians
push naso-gastric tubes into dogs’ lungs, drowning them. Animals dangling
from slings or cowering in cages are left to seize, vomit and collapse…
7. SHOT IN THE DARK – AUSTRALIA’S KANGAROO MASSACRE
Australia’s wildlife culls are permitted to take up to 10,000 kangaroos per
night. Babies found in a slain mother’s pouch may be decapitated with a
sharp blade. Older joeys are bludgeoned or shot at point blank range…
8. STOP THE MILITARY’S WAR ON INNOCENTS
Every year the U.S. Department of Defense wounds and kills hundreds of
thousands of animals — exhausting taxpayer dollars to amputate goats’ legs,
bomb pigs, and inject monkeys with toxins to mimic nerve gas strikes…
9. TWO DOGS SHOT AT POINT BLANK RANGE IN NEW YORK
Robert Bushnell confessed to police on 9/30/09 that he killed Amy Tubbs’ two
dogs. He fired two bullets into Rocky, a 5-year-old Alaskan malamute, and a
single bullet into Mocha, a 7-year-old chocolate Labrador retriever…
10. GET SERIAL CAT KILLER OFF NEW YORK STREETS
Sean Lynde killed girlfriend Rachael Strate’s four cats. In October 2008, he
allegedly poisoned Cleo, whose body was found with a mouthful of detergent
behind a dryer. He bludgeoned Zoe so severely, a vet euthanized her…
