Letter from Pat Russell about joining the battle against cruelty after learning how animals are treated - 14 Feb 2008

I just saw the pictures of the raccoon dogs being tortured. It makes me sick at my stomach. How can anyone be so cruel to a poor helpless animal?

Recently I also heard about the torture inflicted upon cows before they are actually slaughtered and how many were already sick to begin with.

Not too long ago, I read of another dog named Tobey that was brutally tortured by three young boys in Texas. I tried to keep up with the case hoping the boys were put in jail forever for what they did to that innocent little dog. They had to put a gag order on the case because so many people were emailing and sending threats to the three boys. What they did to that poor little dog was just about as bad as what these people are doing to these raccoon dogs.

I have always loved hamburgers, and I guess I never thought about the animals being tortured like they are, but I will not eat meat anymore. I canít get the pictures out of mind.

Is there anything that can be done about the raccoon dogs? Can anyone stop this from being done?

I will never buy anything with fur on it again, but someone needs to rescue these poor little animals.

Thank you.

Pat Russell
