Chicago Pet Shop Lied About Getting Dogs From Puppy Mills!

Filed under: Sad SadBusiness BlitzPuppyDogAnimal Cruelty

Puppy Mill

This is just despicable!

It's bad enough to be a pet shop who gets their puppies from cruel puppy mills, but to lie about it too??

And to force your employees to lie about it for you?!

That's just too much!!

That's why Tracy Ross, a former employee of Furry Babies pet shops in Chicago, quit her job!

She had worked for the pet shop on-and-off for about a year, until she looked into some of the places where the shop got its pups from. She found that "a lot of the names that were on [the] disclosures were puppy mills."

Baby Jaguar Vs Alligator

Filed under: Attack!AlligatorCatWildlife

Never smile (or poke or prod or sniff) at a crocodilian creature!

National Geographic posted a crazy video of a curious baby jaguar sniffing, prodding and nibbling at a live caiman alligator before learning a valuable lesson.

The caiman lies still for minutes during the jaguar's harassment before he loses his shiz.

Lea Michele And PETA Are NOT Full Of Lies…

peta strikes back at horse and carriage association of nyc

…Or so PETA says in response to the Horse and Carriage Association of NYC's statement against PETA and Lea Michele.

In PETA's response, they address all of the Horse and Carriage Association of NYC's arguments in a point-by-point rebuttal. Here are a couple of highlights, with PETA's responses in italics:

The carriage horse rep explains horses are limited to nine hours of work per day, only allowed to work ONE of the two shifts each day AND apparently get a five-week break during the year, during which they're turned out to pasture.

It is true that under current law, carriage horses are limited to working one nine-hour shift per day. It is also true that we have documented numerous occasions when this regulation was ignored by carriage drivers and horses were double-timed (i.e., worked for two shifts in a row).

A change in the law regulating the industry was passed in the spring of 2010 and required that the horses be given five weeks of vacation per year. The problem with this policy and with ALL the current regulations is that the city has devoted little or no resources to enforcement.

A few months ago, a New York City carriage horse was rescued from an auction in Pennsylvania, where the animal would likely have gone to slaughter. In trying to determine how the horse ended up there, animal advocates traced him back to West Side Livery. The owner of the stables claimed that she had sent the horse "on vacation" and, when she replaced him with a younger horse, told the farmer caring for him to sell him (see the New York Times article about this case here: http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/07/05/for-a-former-carriage-horse-a-grassy-sanctuary/ ).

Clearly, oversight is lacking, and many of these so-called "vacations" will end up being permanent.

If regulations aren't met, carriage drivers face up to $2,000 in fines enforced by five organizations — the NYC Department of Health [DOH], NYC Department of Consumer Affairs [DCA], ASPCA, NYPD, and NYC Department of Parks & Recreation.

The city has devoted very few resources to the oversight of this industry. Only the DCA and DOH are required to conduct inspections, and they do so on an infrequent basis.

Out of concern for the horses, the ASPCA has voluntarily funded a dedicated humane law enforcement officer to the carriage horse beat, but one individual cannot possibly keep an eye on 212 horses and 68 carriages housed in four stables at all times.

The abysmal state of record-keeping has been a further challenge to the enforcement of regulations. An audit by the New York comptroller in 2007 found numerous shortcomings, including a lack of inspections and many inconsistencies in the horses' health records.

Once again, PETA backs up their claims quite well!

Check out more of their point-by-point rebuttal after the jump…

Lea Michele And PETA Are Full Of Lies…

Filed under: Lea MichelePETAAnimal RightsHorsesAnimal Cruelty

Horse and Carriage Association of NYC denies PETA's claims

…Or so the Horse and Carriage Association of NYC claims!

The association is firing back at the message put out by PETA and Glee star Lea Michele that carriage horses in NYC are treated unfairly and inhumanely.

A rep for the association, says:

"Come see us. She doesn’t even know. Her recent video that she put up is just filled with lies!”

They seem pretty ticked!

The rep explains horses are limited to nine hours of work per day, only allowed to work ONE of the two shifts each day AND apparently get a five-week break during the year, during which they're turned out to pasture.

If regulations aren’t met, carriage drivers face up to $2,000 in fines enforced by five organizations — the NYC Department of Health, NYC Department of Consumer Affairs, ASPCA, NYPD, and NYC Department of Parks & Recreation.

Despite what Lea claims, the rep says horses aren’t tied to their troughs in their stalls when they’re off-duty.

“The fact is that there’s no tie-end stalls, there’s box stalls,” the rep clarifies.

The rep also says the stables quite comfy for the horses, saying:

“My stable, which houses 76 horses, has automatic drinkers, oscillating fans, and sprinkler systems on them for the summer time.”

He also says barns are equipped with sprinkler systems in case of a fire and they’re NOT run-down tenement buildings like the Glee star claims.

“Every stable in this city has been built as a stable at one point or another,” the rep assures.

Hmm…Lea's video is VERY convincing and obviously any association under fire for cruelty to animals is going to defend themselves.

Maybe the Horse and Carriage Association of NYC should come out with a video of their own, showing multiple "adequate stables" or follow a couple horses for the day to show us exactly what they go through.

What do U think? Did PETA and Lea misconstrue the facts or is the Horse and Carriage Association of NYC covering their tracks?
