REXANO Editorial By Zuzana Kukol www.REXANO.org

Las Vegas, NV (1/22/2007)–Editorials and Letters to the Editor pages are some of the most popular features of newspapers. The general public reading the letters to the editor has every right to assume the letters are original in content and reflect the sincere opinions of people living in their community.

However, REXANO’s recent investigation revealed that many well meaning editors across the USA got snookered by animal rights (AR) activists by reprinting their almost identical form letters regarding tigers and their private ownership, as well as Haley’ act that would ban public contact with baby exotic cats.

See more in REXANO’s truthful video regarding Haley’s Act: End of Animal TV Shows&Contact with Exotic Cats? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yDlg2Ly4v0

Anybody willing to research the subject will quickly find out the real AR agenda is no animals in captivity, not for food or clothing or pets.

Editors need to be cautious, anytime ‘somebody’ writes to you as self appointed ‘voice for animals’ and asks for bans on animal ownership or certain animal use, the red flag should go up, editors owe it to their readers who depend on them for quality and truth in reporting.

Below are examples  how special interest groups, in this case extreme animal rights, AR, do it: they submit and hope to publish similar cookie cutter  but ‘not quite the same’ letters in papers across USA, with different writers in different cities. They have to change content a little bit as editors are usually looking for ‘original’ material.

Is this a set up or plagiarism? YOU be the judge!

To the Editor:

On Christmas day, the same day one boy was killed by an escaped tiger in California and two others were mauled, another tiger was found shot to death alongside an apartment complex in Dallas, Texas. Tigers do not belong in backyard cages.

Please support Haley’s Act HR 1947 or a similar bill to end the breeding of big cats outside of the internationally sanctioned Species Survival Plans administered by accredited zoos.

Tigers should not be pets. They are wild animals. Please support Haley’s Act HR1947 or a similar bill and stop the exploitation of big cats.

This tragedy would never have happened if Congress had made Haley’s Act a priority when it was first introduced two years ago. (snip)

TIGERS

Don’t cage wild animals
On Christmas Day, the same day one boy was killed by an escaped tiger in California and two others were mauled, another tiger was found shot to death alongside an apartment complex in Dallas. Tigers do not belong in backyard cages. Please support Haley’s Act (HR 1947) or a similar bill to end the breeding of big cats outside of the internationally sanctioned Species Survival Plans administered by accredited zoos.

This tragedy would never have happened if Congress had made Haley’s Act a priority when it was first introduced two years ago. Please make it your priority this year.Big cats and other wild animals do not belong in the hands of the public.

Too many animals suffer and the owners don’t know how to properly care for the animals, nor provide for the safety of themselves or the public. It is time to ban the ownership of all wild animals with the exception of those in accredited zoos and sanctuaries.(snip)

On Christmas Day, the same day a boy was killed by an escaped tiger in California, another tiger was found shot to death alongside an apartment complex in Dallas, Texas. This tragedy would never have happened if Congress had enacted the proposed Haley’s Act (H.R. 1947) when it was first introduced two years ago.
    This shooting of a tiger in Dallas is proof of the poor care these backyard animals get. Once pet tigers and the like become a burden (which they almost always do, since people have no experience nor idea what they are getting into), their owners dispose of them in horrible ways, or leave them abandoned to starve.
    Exotic cats do not belong in backyard cages They belong in accredited zoos and ethical sanctuaries where experienced keepers and veterinarians can care for them. We must stamp out backyard breeding and private ownership of exotic cats.

(Please note the writer Stephanie Jochum-Natt works for public AZA accredited zoo that would be exempt from Haley’s act she is supporting; little conflict of interest here or maybe fear of private exotic animal sector competition?)

On Christmas day one boy was killed and two others were mauled by an escaped tiger in California, while another tiger was found shot to death along side an apartment complex in Dallas, TX. Tigers do not belong in backyard cages. Please support Haley’s Act HR 1947 or a similar bill to end the breeding of big cats outside of the internationally sanctioned Species Survival Plans administered by accredited zoos.

With all due respect, the time is now when congress needs to change course and genuinely hears the voice of the people. I speak for multitudes when I say that people have awakened and have grown tired of not being heard. We’ve grown tired of electing and paying “leaders” who have forgotten that their responsibility is to “serve.” Please hear that it is of highest priority that Haley’s act be honored.

This tragedy would never have happened if Congress had made Haley’s Act a priority when it was first introduced two years ago. (snip)
