News Briefs

Lobby Day Proceeds Despite Snow

Three MHVS members were signed and paid up to go to Albany on March 16 for

"Lobby Day." The event was sponsored by the League of Humane Voters (LOHV), Fund for Animals, the Humane Society of the U.S., Farm Sanctuary, NYS Human Association, and EarthSave. Unfortunately, the threatened storms got in the way for our little group, but we learned that about 40 brave activists braved the storm. The intrepid group was there to lobby for the following bills:

(1) a ban of force-feeding of ducks and geese for foie gras;

(2) a bill to protect against downed ³food² animals;

(3) a bill to ban canned shoots: and

(4) a ³home rule² bill to give local governments the power to ban trapping.

For more information about these bills, contact Peter and Anne Muller of LOHV and Wildlife Watch PeterMuller@verizon.net  or call 845.225.4227.
