Letter from the Humane Society

Dear Furiends,

M and I just received this letter and thought you might be as interested as we are.

Inspection reports are crucial to those who wish to protect animals from exploitation and abuse. Tell the USDA to restore these reports to their website immediately.
What this message is about
Tell the USDA to stop protecting animal abusers
In what might be called an animal abuse cover-up, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) late last week removed from its website all inspection reports on thousands of commercial dog breeding operators, Tennessee Walking horse show participants, roadside zoos, aquariums, circuses, research labs and other facilities regulated under the federal Animal Welfare Act and Horse Protection Act. The USDA is hiding the work product of its own inspectors from the public!

It’s impossible for the average citizen to know what’s happening to research animals kept behind the laboratory door or for caged dogs at puppy mill operations in a rural outpost. That’s precisely why government inspection records are essential to ensure that these dogs, monkeys, rabbits and other animals are receiving basic care.

The public has a right to access these taxpayer-supported reports and should be able to rely on the USDA to make them accessible. These records have been essential in bringing delinquent puppy mill operators and horse soring violators to justice.

Please tell the USDA that they should not be permitted to withhold this vital information and should instead continue to keep those who are responsible for complying with federal law accountable for their actions.

Act now

    That is so sad. I just wrote to the Humane Society to find out what to do about some states like OK and TX that animal control shoots cats, I am waiting for a response.
