A note: I just received a note from someone on the list
about this happening recently in another school. No action was taken by the
activist or the school. I know this nonsense happens all over; but we
especially should take it seriously. It is actionable criminal behavior. It
is not cute, and the fact that it involves smaller beings doesn't make it
less cruel. In Eastchester H.S. chickens were shoved into knapsacks for the
'releasing;' some died.
These little beings who feel pain and fear just like us
are sold like they are garbage, shoved into bags, boxes, whatever, with no
food or water, and 'released' into crowded school areas to fend for
Witnesses in other schools tell of them being
drop-kicked, having their heads smashed into doors, and stomped. Let's
please take this, and our abilities, seriously.
An NBC reporter, when told of the Ardsley incident
said, "So what was the prank?" He had to be explained that that WAS the
prank. And if the schools refuse to install humane ed courses, then they
should be treating their little criminals as what they are. The fact that
one little girl was pregnant when she was sold like she was garbage, then
thrown into a crowded school cafeteria to fend for herself, makes this all
the more poignant.
If you haven't yet made any of the contacts regarding
this incident, the original alert is at the bottom. I have added two
contacts for the Southwest Board of Ed
notated with asterisks *.
Thanks for taking this seriously. I will put out a
'letters' alert shortly - Kiley

Just sending a little update out to everyone who
offered to rescue a rat or two - all of the babies are doing very well, as
are the mothers.
They're all going to be albinos, like mom - they've got
white 'peach fuzz' fur, and it's adorable :)
So, without further blabber, here is a link to an
allbum full of new pictures of the babies and their mothers :)
