New York- Westchester County's intention to turn 850 acres of parkland over to bow-and-arrow violence on November 7th should not prevail. With Rockland County taking steps to follow this lead, Friends of Animals president Priscilla Feral stated, "Deer are not causing real problems to the people of New York, but violence is."

STEP IT UP NORWALK

Update on the Great Texas Debacle

Many people have written to ask about the latest in the Primarily Primates ordeal. By way of background for guests who are new to this controversy, the current legal predicament facing Primarily Primates ("PPI"), the pioneering Texas animal sanctuary, arose when People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals ("PETA") presented a case early last year in which several primates living at the refuge were named as plaintiffs. Perversely, PETA's case intended to remove animals from the country's oldest private primate refuge and place them in the custody of people who use primates in research.

PPI's response to Peta's Allegations

As the Interim Executive Director of Primarily Primates, this letter is in response to the Mary Beth Sweetland letter of October 16, 2006 sent to the Board of Directors of Friends of Animals.

Pomegranates are Wonderful; Animal Testing Isn't

Friends of Animals members and supporters have spoken. And they don't want animal testing in their pomegranate juice.

Update on Connecticut Alert

This important update is on status of two bills before the Connecticut General Assembly, "An Act Concerning Monk Parakeets" and "An Act Concerning Limited Sunday Hunting."

Oil Drilling Stripped From Defense Spending Bill

Yesterday, the Senate refused to include oil drilling in a $453.5 billion defense spending bill. Senators voted 56-44 against passage. The bill, which also includes disaster relief and military funding, would have opened up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.

This is a true victory for the ecosystem of the Refuge and the animals residing there. We at Friends of Animals thank the lawmakers and commend all people who worked quickly to oppose the troubling provision. It's now time to discuss real lifestyle changes and fresh energy policies.
