The Companion Animal Protection Society is launching a national alert campaign to prevent an annual squirrel killing contest in Holley, N.Y.. The “7th Annual Hazzard County Squirrel Slam” is scheduled for Saturday, February 16. The contest, which awards cash prizes for the largest squirrel killed that day, will feature a “weigh in” and a gun drawing with several different types of fire arms, one of which is a AR/22 Semi.
The event is sponsored by the Holley Fire Department and is inviting children under the age of fourteen to shoot and kill squirrels.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support to stop puppy mills! There are dogs locked up in cages in the back room of this place. And here are the statistics from the Illinois Department Of Agriculture:
2-17-2012 55 adult dogs - 40 puppies
4-20-2012 60 adult dogs - 50 puppies
7-6-2012 60 adult dogs - 45 puppies
How many dogs can we cram in those cages? This store is probably around 400 square feet. The back room? Who knows....nobody cango back there and see the dogs stacked in the cages. In my opinion, this is inhumane. If anyone has bought a sick or dying dog from puppy parlor, please go to www.caps-web.org and fill out a pet store complaint form. Thank you!
