PETA strikes again!

Being a catte producer I have to be constantly aware of what PETA is up to. The time is coming soon we will no longer even be able to use hot branding as a permanent mark. Here is what is going on in South Dakota...

Huron, S.D. -- This morning, PETA fired off a letter to Jerome Hertel, manager of the South Dakota State Fair, urging him to ensure that all animal exhibitors who are invited to the fair will be in full compliance with the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA). In the letter, PETA points out that its offices are inundated every year with complaints that exhibitors at fairs and festivals across the country have abused animals or endangered the public. PETA explains that although animal exhibitors are required to be licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), a license is no guarantee that exhibitors will provide adequate animal care or follow public safety measures. The group also points out that many exhibitors fail to comply with the minimal federal standards established in the AWA.
PETA is asking Hertel to implement the following guidelines:

* An exhibitor will be ineligible to appear at the fair if he or she has been cited by the USDA within the past three years for inadequate veterinary care, improper and/or dangerous animal handling, or failure to provide adequate food, water, shelter, or space.
* An exhibitor who is traveling with primates must provide proof that each animal has tested negative within the past year for tuberculosis and herpes -- both of which can be transmitted to humans.
* All exhibitors must provide a written plan for the safe recapture of escaped animals.
* All exhibitors must disclose all past incidents in which any of the animals who will appear at the fair potentially endangered the public.

"We'd prefer it if Mr. Hertel banned all live-animal exhibits from the fair, but at the very least he should adopt strict guidelines -- for the sake of animals and people," says PETA Director Debbie Leahy. "Almost without exception, the exhibitors who frequent fairs and festivals have abysmal records when it comes to providing animal care and protecting the public."

Well some of those do make sense, like the herpes and TB thing, I don't think that is too ludicrous.

Its a fair... for the most part you are talking cows, pig's, chickens, and such... Very few people show "monkeys and chimps" at your county or state fair...

Just Peta trying to get there foot in the door.

Re: PETA strikes again!

ive been to lots of SD county fairs, and a few SD state fairs and never seen a monkey at even one of those fairs , now maybe in the big cities they show their monkeys, in the country we dont do that to the monkeys.... we let them be. im not a big peta fan... and im wondering what authority they have, i was of the impression they had none... i think i would just round file that letter, and would probably be just too busy to talk to them on the phone.
