Hi there,

Unfortunately one of my staff has suffered a sudden and unexpected bereavement in the loss of her beloved companion dog, Chili.

A dedication to Chili will appear in FUR HEAVEN SENT.

I offer to Jill, my sympathies and my friendship as she adjusts to this time of tragic loss and heartbreak.

Timothy Alan Freeman, age 44, will have a hearing on felony animal cruelty charges on Dec. 18, 2000 at 8:45 a.m.

Witnesses say Freeman held a four-month old kitten underwater and threw her ten feet against a wall in Sept. 2000. Investigating police arrested Freeman when they found the kitten hidden on his property. Police said the kitten was near death and had bloody stools. A veterinarian later said the kitten was suffering from shock and internal bleeding. He further said that four ribs had been previously broken.

Prosecuting attorney Dan Hess said, "[It was] excessively cruel and borderline torture," according to local news media. However, it's feared that the felony charges may be reduced to misdemeanors.

Write to Deputy District Atty. Dan Hess to urge that the felony charges do NOT be reduced.

What To Do When Your Dog Is Choking

Choking In your pet is a serious situation. Here are some tips on how to handle such an emergency.

IMPORTANT Do not pull thread or string from the dog's throat. A needle or hook may be attached. Get to a veterinarian as soon as possible.

Symptoms Violent pawing at the face. Gasping and gulping. Great agitation and anxiety.

1. Restrain the dog. Open its mouth wide and pull out its tongue with your fingers or a cloth. Holding the tongue, look deeply into the dog's throat with a bright light.

2A. If you can see the obstruction, grasp it firmly and gently remove it.

2B. If you cannot see the obstruction, lay the dog on its side, place your palms just behind the last rib and give 4 quick thrusts. Recheck the throat. Repeat thrusts if necessary.

The Bear Protection Act (S. 1109/H.R. 2166) passed the Senate on Tuesday, October 17. This bill, sponsored in the Senate by Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and in the House by Representative John Porter (R-IL), will ban the trade in bear parts, especially the gall bladders and bile.

Now, the Bear Protection Act must be voted on by the House of Representatives. Time is running out in the legislative session. If the Bear Protection Act is not passed before Congress adjourns, it will have to wait until January to be reintroduced.

WHAT YOU CAN DO 1. Call or e-mail the Speaker of the House, Representative Dennis Hastert. The phone number is (202) 225-0600 and the e-mail address is [email protected]

2. Politely ask that the Speaker "bring the Bear Protection Act AS PASSED BY THE SENATE to the House floor for a vote before Congress adjourns."

Without passage of the Bear Protection Act, poachers will continue to profit from their ruthless and illegal bear kills. Please take action today! Thank you.
