PET/America: Help the Horses in in Jefferson County 9:43 AM
Dennis Danley has been charged with 10 counts of animal cruelty. Sheriff's deputies identifed 5 dead and 10 malnourished horses. Unbelievably, the horses continue to remain in his custody. At least one other has died since his arrest. The law provides for the horses to be seized and volunteers are available to care for them until the court makes a decision re: them. Sheriff Boober has not complied with the law. Details of this sad situation are available on the PETA website. Documentation is available at Herald-mail.com. I am requesting your help in petitioning Sheriff Boober to seize the animals and place them in proper care until the court determines how this situation will be resolved.
Dennis B. Danley faces 10 criminal counts after neglecting horses
By CHRIS BROWN / Journal Staff Writer
CHARLES TOWN — A Charles Town man was charged with multiple counts of cruelty to animals this week after police received a report last month that he was not properly caring for a number of horses at his farm in Kearneysville and a handful of them had died.
Dennis B. Danley, 54, of Charles Town, was arrested Monday by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, which claimed he was mistreating 10 to 15 horses by not feeding or watering them properly at a back field on Blakely Farm Lane.
According to a complaint filed by Cpl. V. H. Tiong, Danley admitted the horses were last seen by a veterinarian in September. Danley said the horses were supposed to be thin because of their breeding, according to the complaint.
During a visit to the property, Tiong said he asked Danley for documentation that the horses were healthy, but Danley failed to provide the paperwork.
Danley also failed to properly bury several dead horses, and Tiong said he also did not see any feed in the barn he was using. The horses were also being kept outside, police said, and Danley was ordered to provide the horses with shelter in the case of bad weather.
Tiong again visited the farm on March 15, after informing Danley that he would be bringing a veterinarian to examine the horses, and found several horses still in poor health, with some suffering from rain rot, and others appearing almost skeletal. In all, 10 horses were deemed malnourished and one of the horses in Danley’s care recently died because of a viral infection.
Danley was released on a $7,500 personal recognizance bond. If convicted, he could face between a $200 to $3,000 fine and/or 6 months in jail on each count of animal cruelty.
Danley was convicted in November of 1997 in Loudoun County, Va., on similar animal cruelty charges, police said.
Jefferson County resident Jeanne Morton said she was trying to organize a group of people to help care for these horses. Morton, who said feeding an individual horse was expensive, noted Danley’s previous conviction and said it underscored the need for the horses to be cared for.
“It’s not as if he’s just somebody who fell on hard times,” Morton said.
Section: News Posted: 3/28/2007
This news was just released an hour and 20 minutes ago, please pass it on, the melamine is not just in wheat anymore, it's now been found in rice protein concentrate. I suspect it will be found in many more food sources before this ends, including human food. I changed my dog over to organic/holistic food about 5 months ago, but still she has been lethargic and drinking 3 times her normal amount of water. This was before the news release though, so I attributed it a thyroid/glucose problem, which I hoped the new food might help, and I am having her checked regardless. Here is some sound advice I am passing on (anonymously) from my friend, it's worth considering if it's possible for you to do:
"The pet food scare freaked me out as well and I've decided not to give [his pets] commercial food anymore but instead, make their dinner myself from known ingredients. These greedy companies bought the cheapest wheat they could find and of course coming from China, it was tainted with poison as they have much lower health standards than we have here. Supposedly 40,000 dogs and cats were either killed or seriously sickened by the latest tainted food released to the public. I think that the best way to be sure of the integrity of the food is not grow your own or to buy only simply unchemically treated foods and cook them yourself."
Article and link below, take care all,
Natural Balance pet food recalled:
The industrial chemical melamine has been found in more pet food, and suspicion is falling on a second pet-food ingredient imported from China as the source of the contamination.
Natural Balance Pet Foods said Tuesday it found melamine in samples of some of its food, which led to a recall. The company suspects melamine was in a rice protein concentrate used as an ingredient, said President Joey Herrick in an interview.
Melamine is the chief suspect related to the Menu Foods recall, first announced four weeks ago for more than 60 million cans and pouches of wet dog and cat food. The melamine in Menu's products was in wheat gluten imported from China and sold to Menu and several other pet-food makers, which also did recalls.
The rice protein concentrate was imported from China by San Francisco-based Wilbur-Ellis. Herrick says the concentrate, which is being tested, is suspected to have melamine, as it was the only new ingredient. Recalled Natural Balance products include Venison and Brown Rice canned and dry dog foods, dog treats and Venison and Green Pea dry cat food.
Wilbur-Ellis CEO John Thacher said his company sold the concentrate to five pet-food makers, but that most of it went to two firms. One of the primary companies was Diamond Pet Foods, which packs some of the Natural Balance product but doesn't use the concentrate in any Diamond-made foods, says Diamond spokesman Jim Fallon. The other major customer, which Thacher would not name, tested the rice protein and found no melamine, Thacher says. Natural Balance's rice protein concentrate is mixed with venison meal, Thacher says.
Natural Balance has received about 10 reports of sick pets, mostly dogs, since Thursday, Herrick says. It started testing the foods Friday, when it also asked retailers to pull the products. As in the Menu recall, some of the pets developed kidney failure, Natural says.
Natural Balance was co-founded in 1989 by actor Dick Van Patten, according to the company's website.
The Food and Drug Administration offered no comment Tuesday. It said Monday that Natural Balance had informed the agency of the issue. Thacher says it told the FDA on Sunday that it had detected melamine in some rice protein concentrate imported from China about a week ago. Wilbur-Ellis has ceased importing the ingredient from the Chinese firm, Binzhou Futian Biology Technology, Thacher says.
Along with Diamond, pet-food makers Nestlé Purina PetCare and Procter & Gamble said Tuesday that they don't use rice protein concentrate in their foods.
No other Natural Balance products include the ingredient, the company says.
Melamine is not allowed in human or pet food. It is an industrial chemical used in plastics worldwide and also sometimes as a fertilizer in Asia, the FDA says.
While melamine is not highly toxic, the FDA is investigating whether it, or something related to it, is responsible for pet deaths in the Menu recall.

EM: Import prohibition for dog and cat fur Saturday, 4:30 PM
EM: Import prohibition for dog and cat fur
Import prohibition for dog and cat fur
more than two million dogs and cats give up their lives for fur products every year in Asia. Many animals are specially bred for the fur industry, others are simply caught on the streets. Furs from dogs that often land on the dinner plate in Asian countries could also make their way into international trade. These dogs and cats generally vegetate in tiny wire cages. Brutal methods of killing are the order of the day, with some animals having their fur ripped off their still living bodies.
Hundreds of thousands of these furs make their way into the European Union each year where they are then sold to unsuspecting consumers as trimming on clothes, blankets, decoration articles or toys. Please help us close the European market to these products and stop this cruelty to animals!
There is a proposal for an import and trade prohibition being discussed at the moment in the EU. However, this prohibition is just limited to dog and cat furs that expressly originate from fur farms. The import of furs from other sources will continue to be allowed. For this reason VIER PFOTEN is starting an international campaign today for a loophole-free import prohibition! With your help, we would like to convince the European Parliament and the EU Member States to close the existing "loophole for animal cruelty" and to furthermore campaign for a statutory labelling obligation for all fur products. Our aim: No dog or cat fur to be allowed to make its way into the EU anymore! Time is running out as the final decision of the Council of Ministers is expected to be made on 7 May.
Take part! Get involved with our campaign for a loophole-free import prohibition. With just a click of the mouse you can appeal by email to the responsible Ministers for Agriculture from Bulgaria, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Rumania and Hungary to support our demands.
You could give this action even more weight by "inviting" as many animal lovers as you can to also become involved online. To do this, send the following text to friends and acquaintances:
Protest against the trade in dog and cat fur, together with me and VIER PFOTEN: http://www.vier-pfoten.org/furtrade

Menu Foods Boycott
Please sign this petition to Menu Foods and forward widely!
Hearing how the company so carelessly continued
testing on animals, some of whom died, broke my
heart. I very much want to do something about this.
I very much want to get the word out about this.
My own puppies, age 7 months and 10 months, were
sickened by so-called "food" produced by this
company. I am disgusted.
I come to you asking that you help spread my
message. So many people have signed my petition and
then e-mailed me saying they had no idea the company
was testing on animals. I feel that it's vital that
more people learn about this.
I am a realistic person. I understand that the
chances of me effecting this business are slim to
none. The purpose of my petition is simply to
educate people of what's going on... it's important
to get the word out.
PLEASE HELP STOP THE HORRIBLE GREYHOUND RACING, THE SPORT THAT KILLS AND CONSIDER SIGNING AND FORWARD TO EVERYBODY YOU KNOW.
THANKS SO MUCH, RIA.

Please note, crosspost and email all your friends the following article. We MUST get it to the front page. The FDA is proposing classifying supplements, vitamins and even FRUIT JUICE as DRUGS. This will not only deny people access to alternative care, but will result in a HUGE increase in ANIMAL EXPERIMENTS since the FDA requires it for all "drugs" The commenting time frame is only until April 30th, so we MUST act quickly!! I've sent alerts to all the animal welfare organizations I can think of, so hopefully, we can put a stop to this, but we need to move quickly!! Note it and move it forward!

http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/oc/dockets/comments/COMMENTSMain.CFM?EC_DOCUMENT_ID=1451&SUBTYP=CONTINUE&CID=&AGENCY=FDA - direct link to the comments page
We need to fight this thing immediately. The FDA is taking public comment until April 30th. If we don't act on this, places like Covance, the animal testing lab, will have even MORE business coming their way since, as you all know, the FDA demands that all drugs be animal tested!!!!!!!! Please include this as a reason not to permit this to happen as it will serve the purpose of indicating both your displeasure with the proposed changes AND indicate that you don't believe in animal testing.
Be sure to cite Docket No. 2006D-0480. Draft Guidance for Industry on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products and Their Regulation by the Food and Drug Administration. Tell them you support open access to vitamins, herbs, and supplements, and you do not want CAM to be regulated by the FDA.
Thanks so much!!
