I'M A WILDLIFE POPULATION CONTROL SPECIALIST. THEIR NUMBER IS 1-800-377-7878;
they will most likely tell you to write to: Gretta Ross, Harriet
Carter, Dept. 30 North Wales, PA 19455. They said that the "interest
in the items is greater than the objections." Please let them
hear from you. You can let them know that you don't feel hunting
messages are fitting for a family catalog: they promote the use of
firearms and cruelty to wildlife. Ask that they remove those items
from their catalog.

SOME OF WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO LATELY
Wildlife Watch continues to maintain a wildlife hotline in two
counties and has been able to help folks who wish to help wildlife
(or non-lethally remove wild animals) with direct help or by linking
them to wildlife rehabilitators and wildlife veterinarians in their
C.A.S.H. member, Richard Orr, had a brilliant
Get hunter orange pieces of plastic or material and post the
forests with it. It should reduce the amount of shooting.
Watch held an animal rights coalition meeting to initiate efforts
to get a no-kill shelter in Rockland County. The model for
the shelter is the Ulster SPCA. We interviewed Christine French,
Director of the SPCA in Kingston in order to bring the "no-kill" concept
and program to those who could promote it. Christine said there's
an interim period that every no-kill shelter has to go through, but
it can and does work! They boast an extremely high rate of adoptions.
To the left is the cat exercise area where cats are rotated from
cages so that everyone spends one or two times a day stretching,
running, playing, climbing. There's also an outdoor area for cats
where they can enjoy the sun. Contact Christine French for step by
step details about turning a kill "shelter" to a no-kill
shelter - her e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Baby birds had been hurled to the pavement horrifying shoppers
and Wildlife Watch was called. We got Wallkill Price Chopper to uphold
their policy against power washing signs during nesting season by
calling for a boycott. The boycott was called off upon their pledge
of "Never Again."
