Real Horror Here Folks...

Summary:
Little Shop Of Horrors,  Puppy Mill Parlor in Lisle.  The back room is filled with dogs in cages that never go outside.  Ever.  The screaming alone in this place would make any person’s skin crawl.  I heard it just last week when a kid, oh around 15 years old, had the back door open.   Imagine how scared the dogs are.  How much blood has been wiped up in that back room?   How many dead dogs have been in that back room?   They have scary days everyday.   Everyday is a nightmare.  Everyday is worse than yesterday.  Everyday is Halloween for them.

The Companion Animal Protection Society is eagerly awaiting for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to sign A.740-A/S.3753-A. Local governments in New York State will finally be allowed to regulate pet dealers and fight the puppy mill cycle in their neighborhoods. The bill will close a gap in state law that left animals and consumers unprotected. For far too long, municipalities have been unable to fight puppy mills through meaningful legislation.

Thanks to A.740-A/S.3753-A, municipalities like New York City will be able to enact ordinances banning the retail sale of pet shop puppies, kittens, and rabbits and requiring stores to offer only shelter or rescue animals for adoption. CAPS' New York director is already working with legislators in Suffolk, Nassau, and Westchester counties to draft ordinances.

CAPS, along with other animal advocate groups, worked hard to get this bill through the NYS legislature. Local communities demanded the ability to regulate pet dealers in their backyards and A.740-A/S.3753-A is the answer. Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal and Senator Mark Grisanti demonstrated their commitment to animal welfare by making this landmark bill possible.

Summary:
I feel like we have been through a war together.
I have to say, I do not recognize France. Rodilhan looked like a town under siege during a war. I remember women, my mother’s age, running towards us, away from the barricades, screaming, attempting to breathe after being gassed at point blank range. Others rushed passed us towards the barricades, bravely towards the real criminals, the police–the state.

Summary:
American Tourists who are visiting the village of Rodilhan on October 27 will see a side of France that the French government would rather not have them see. There, they can view the dirty little secret that passes as culture. That secret is bullfighting. Those who think bullfighting is illegal in France will be almost right. However, there is an exception. French anti bullfighting laws are lifted because slaughtering bulls in the bull ring is considered part of the area’s culture.
