RE: Bad Times for Cats

Oh, Zem...my heart goes out to those poor animals and you as well as
your friend. Don't these people know that if you leave the skunks alone
they'll leave you alone...chances are they have a nest nearby and as
soon as their babies are able to be moved, they'll move on. God, would a
little patience kill some of these folks?

Subject: [CHAT] Bad Times for Cats

I have hesitated to discuss this with you all because I have been so
upset but<br>here goes... A very wealthy doctor and his wife own a
historic house in<br>LaGrange (one of many). They decided they had a
problem with skunks, and<br>instead of calling the county animal control
officer they called the game<br>warden who gave them permission to use
leghold traps. Their house is down the<br>street from me, in the middle
of town, and surrounded by houses with small<br>children. They employed
idiots from the primordial ooze. Bottom line there<br>are four dead cats
(two of which were mine and all of whom were shot -- in<br>town), one
cat with a broken foot, one injured fox sold to dog trainers,
and<br>untold dead possums. I have not heard of their catching any
skunks. I went<br>beserk, our policeman was horrified, the mayor was
bothered because it<br>involved a confrontation, which he abhors. My
girlfriend, whose cat has the<br>broken foot,and I have involved PETA

all the mayor would promise was<br>to see what he could do. Today he
told me they had switched to humane traps<br>and that all cats would be
released. Oh, yes, they were baiting the leghold<br>traps with
sardines!!! If you don't hear from me for a while it will be<br>because
I'm in jail. I am going to speak with the DA's office about
filing<br>animal abuse charges (a misdemeanor here). I am now extremely
knowledgeable<br>about the kinds of traps legal in Tennessee, and it
makes me sick. I have<br>also posted a copy of our animal abuse statute
on the towns bulletin board.<br>PETA is calling our mayor tomorrow to
find out the status of the case. If<br>that doesn't stop the slaughter
I'm calling the television stations.<br>zem<br>zone 7<br>West
