CONTACT ARDSLEY HIGH SCHOOL

24 Jun 2004

On June 10 in Ardsley High School, located in a tonier part of Westchester County, dozens of mice were released into the school's public hallways; on June 11 several rats were released into the cafeteria. ON NEITHER OCCASION WERE THE POLICE NOTIFIED, which, tragically, might have prevented the second 'releasing,' in addition to the fact that this is ANIMAL CRUELTY and violation of public safety as well.

Fortunately at least one student was willing to get involved, by rescuing the animals and coming forward. The incident is now being investigated, grudgingly, by school administration, who has not returned polite phone calls, though it has yet to be reported to the police.

These incidents must not be swept under the rug any more. This is criminal activity and must be treated as such. These 'pranks' usually turn up in monied, privileged areas. These students should be held accountable for their actions and provided with humane education as well. PLEASE MAKE STRONG COMPLAINTS TO THE FOLLOWING PERSONS:
