PETA Sends Letter To Tennessee Gonernor

Postby Todd » Wed Oct 06, 2010 6:07 pm

PETA's letter to Gov. Phil Bredesen follows.

October 5, 2010

The Honorable Phil Bredesen
Governor of Tennessee

Dear Governor Bredesen:

Your urgent attention is respectfully requested. PETA headquarters has received numerous complaints from Tennessee residents who have been advised by Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) staff members to cruelly kill wild animals who have been live-trapped. Residents who call TWRA seeking advice about how to dispose of trapped raccoons and skunks are being instructed to kill the animals by drowning, gassing via tailpipe, and abandonment (leaving animals inside the traps without sustenance).

Drowning animals, gassing trapped animals with carbon monoxide, or allowing them to languish inside traps until they die of starvation, exposure, and/or dehydration would cause unnecessary pain and suffering and would therefore violate Tennessee
"Nothing is easier than spending public money. It does not appear to belong to anybody. The temptation is overwhelming to bestow it on somebody." Calvin Coolidge
