Tethering Ordinance May Have Saved This Strangled Dog
A horrified person spotted a dog lying dead beside a Tupelo, Mississippi residence. The dog had been cruelly chained outside 24/7 and carelessly tethered close by a mass of wiring. The poor dog became entangled and with nobody to help, finally strangled to death. Don't let this happen again!
Elephant Suffering at Bronx Zoo Whitewashed by Animal Planet
Animal Planet has just aired its second season of a very misleading series called The Zoo, which sanitizes the daily suffering of the three Asian elephants confined at the Bronx Zoo in New York State. One has been solitary for close to a decade, and the other two suffer severely compromised welfare. Animal Planet's "infomercial" for elephant incarceration is an extremely damaging misrepresentation that endangers all elephants who yearn for freedom. It must be pulled immediately!
