Report Cruel Nativity Scenes

From [email protected] 

Please notify I-SPEAK, International Society for the Protection of Exotic Animal Kind and Livestock, Inc. of any nativity display with live animals that does not have proper shelter, good animal weight, food or water.

Signs to look for are

* Shelter - ALL animals should be able to get under roof at same time and stay dry. Often there is shelter but not enough room for all animals that SPCA officers overlook if called.

* Animals should have good body weight. Donkeys are often seen that need hoofs cut. Look for obvious cracks and if hoof is actually curling up, an obvious sign of problems.

* At closing time there should be enough food and water left.

USDA does not inspect if no exotic animals are owned by exhibitor. SPCA's may not be familiar with livestock. Check your town zoning codes and request town to handle if it is a violation.

Contact us for any further information or assistance. I-SPEAK investigators can usually check at this time of year in NY, NJ, Conn. Penn. if it appears bad enough. Pictures sent to us will help.

Humanely Yours,
