Global Exotics’ Appeal Denied: 26,000 Animals Won’t Be Returned Jasen and Vanessa Shaw

  • February 5, 2010 9:54 am

I receive daily posts from a great site called Care2 . They cover a wide variety of world issues such as animal welfare, global warming, environment and wildlife, human rights, politics, and more.
I am compelled to comment on a story I read this morning about the outcome of a 7 month undercover PETA investigation. As I was reading this horrific news of animal abuse I was eager to learn what sort of punishment Jasen and Vanessa Shaw—the owners and operators of an Arlington based company called U.S. Global Exotics ( USGE ) were going to get. They were divested of the exotic animals and cannot run such a facility again…..that’s it?!?! Please tell me they are getting jail time…huge fines… Something!! What is wrong with this story ( besides the unforgivable abuse and deaths of innocent animals ) !? Nowhere is it indicated that the Shaw’s have to pay for their crimes. So, they can’t operate such a business again….ah, that really sucks, poor things, they’re out of work – for now. THEY should be crammed into a tiny windowless room with no food and water filled with dead and decaying people!!!
This is another positive achievement for PETA and I applaud all their hard work….but there needs to be a huge overhaul of the legal system and ‘industry standards’.
This is simply unacceptable.

A Dutch Video for IFAW

I just added my face to an IFAW ( International Fund for Animal Welfare) campaign to save the whales. You can check out their website and maybe you’ll feel like doing the same. It’s an easy and fun way to help out!

As I was perusing their amazing site, taking in all they do to help animals and the planet, I came across this video that I want to share. So, if you understand dutch-great!- if not I think you’ll still get the idea…it’s pretty self explanatory. You’ll see there are many more videos to check out … in english.
