OUR HEARTFELT CONGRATULATIONS TO FELD ENTERTAINMENT FOR A WELL DESERVED VICTORY
By: Date: 01/26/2009
NAIA congratulates Feld Entertainment and Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey for their gigantic victory in the long fought lawsuit waged against them by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), Fund for Animals, (a part of the Humane Society of the United States) and several other high profile animal fundraising groups.
In their quest for donors, it is a sad irony that many of the nation's so-called animal protection organizations target the very businesses that are doing most to protect animals. Certainly that's the case in this 8-year old lawsuit, whose key plaintiff and witness was found to be untruthful and lacking in credibility, a plaintiff who just happened to be paid by several of these same animal protection groups.
Ironically, while Feld was spending millions to assure the health, well-being and preservation of the world's threatened elephants, the animal fundraising groups were busy paying plaintiffs, and pushing policies and litigation that could lead to their extinction.
So, on behalf of all the people who work and live with animals, whether professionally, or as breed enthusiasts, livestock producers or simply as pet owners, our heartfelt thanks go to Feld Entertainment. This is a huge win for all of us!
