Re: “Use of gassing challenged

Lisa, this is an excellent story. We ran into Houser around 1990 during the time Harnett County was killing dogs by gunshot. The county wanted to buy a chamber from Houser but a humane organization was formed and the plan was shot down. How? With a lot, a whole lot, of media coverage, the humane society took the county to court and won through a court order. I cant understand why more county humane societies arent doing the same. But, allow me to elaborate just a little --- during this time some of us had our tires flattened, we were threatened, some of us were even run off the road by county trucks. But did we give up? NO. We had a great group of people who were not afraid of politics, who believed in the cause. And --- the winning ticket --- we had the media that supported us. YOU can make a difference. This issue is sadly lacking in media coverage and Lisa, you are highly complimented for having the spirit to write the article. I also applaud your publisher for allowing you to bring this critical matter to the forefront. Are other medias being paid off? If so --- what a sad day for publishers and directors throughout the entire world. Or is the media afraid of those in higher power? In my opinion anyone who votes to inhumanely kill Gods creatures is not in higher power. We put them there --- get them out. Thats what we did in Harnett County. Perhaps if one, just one, of our elected representatives who sit in church every Sunday would watch the killing of companion animals by gassing, the rules would be challenged. It totally sickens me to think that we voted for these people in the first place. They need to stop and think how they would feel if their beloved Fido became lost and would fall prey to North Carolinas inhumane killing of animals. Wake up people. It is WAY past time for a change in government. These animals didnt just decide to be born. God created them each and every one. I challenge each one of you to do your homework, find a candidate that is caring and humane and who will make animal rights part of their platform. IF we can get the media to pay attention to a newsworthy story, we CAN put them in office.

Re: “Use of gassing challenged

What many people do not realize is there are LOCAL shelters that mix the puppies, kittens, dogs and cats together while they are being killed. Family pets that have become lost? Yes. They fight while they are dying. Pleasant thoughts? Anyone who believes this is okay doesn't have much thought to God and His babies. Or either they just don't care. It's time for North Carolina to get out of the dark ages, raise our integrity to more than that of a known "backward redneck state," and join other states in the humane killing of animals.
