For seven months, a PETA investigator went undercover at U.S. Global Exotics, Inc., (USGE) a massive international animal wholesale facility in Arlington, Texas. At the time, USGE was one of the nation's largest dealers of animals sold in pet stores all around the world.
PETA's investigation revealed that thousands of animals suffered horrible fates because they were denied the most basic necessities: food, water, space, air, humidity, veterinary care, and even a painless end to their misery. Continuous, cruel confinement to severely crowded and filthy enclosures compounded their suffering and resulted in the slow, painful deaths of countless animals.
Thanks to PETA's investigation, USGE's animal victims have been rescued, but other pet shops and dealers such as PETCO and PetSmart continue to exploit animals for money. Please take a look at the photos, watch the undercover video footage, and read more about the findings from this investigation, then help animals sold into the pet trade by calling on PetSmart and PETCO today to end the sale of animals at their stores.

Last week, the Coach House Gifts store at the Sierra Vista Mall in Clovis, California, received a shipment of 40 frogs for sale in ''EcoAquariums.'' A shipping blunder left the frogs to sit for an extra day--the ice packs melted, and as a result, 37 out of the 40 frogs perished. Two teenage girls had to sift through the dead frogs in order to find the three survivors, and the dead frogs were flushed down the toilet. Such things are not uncommon: During a PETA undercover investigation of Wild Creations, the group's investigator was told that approximately 180 frogs froze to death when Wild Creations employees failed to include heat packs with the shipment. The investigator also documented that Wild Creations shipped up to 100 ''replacement frogs'' to customers on a daily basis.

PETA's investigation also revealed unsanitary living conditions, starvation, and gross mishandling of frogs at Wild Creations' warehouse. Frogs were left to languish in stagnant water that was murky with feces and molted skin. Many frogs were so desperate for food that they chewed on each other's legs, causing wounds, infections, and, eventually, loss of limbs. Live frogs were left on the floor to die or--mistaken for dead--tossed aside, including into the trash, by employees who had received no training. Please contact Coach House Gifts and demand that the company stop selling frogs!

Following is an excerpt shared from Senator Kay Hagan's
recent "Carolina Connection" eNewsletter:

Fighting for Our Future:
Wrapping Up Senator Hagan's
Budget Listening Tour

With Washington-as-usual partisanship stalling progress on serious deficit reduction and job creation, I recently convened listening sessions to hear directly from my best advisors – the people of North Carolina.

My "Fighting for our Future" Budget Listening Tour made stops in Raleigh, Greensboro, Charlotte and Wilmington, and the difference between what I hear in North Carolina and what I see in Washington is astonishing.

For too long in Washington, partisan bickering has prevented real deficit reduction. In North Carolina, the vast consensus was that we must work together, Democrats and Republicans, to craft a responsible plan to reduce the deficit that is balanced, bipartisan and calls for shared sacrifice....
Be sure to read the entire newsletter here:  http://hagan.senate.gov/newsletter/blt-wrap.html and don't forget to register your email address to receive her future letters...especially if you're a NC'er, or just appreciate politics in general.

     ###     By Congresswoman Virginia Foxx

When our Founders poked their finger in the eye of an imperialistic colonial power in the 1700's and declared their independence, the success of a new nation built on the concept of freedom was far from certain.  However, as we know, despite the long odds, the concept and our country have prevailed.

Similar long odds confront our nation today.  Consider our national energy policies.  As most North Carolinians know first hand, energy prices are gobbling up ever-larger slices of the family or business budget.  With gas prices averaging about $3.50 a gallon last month, it can seem like we are at the mercy of the Middle Eastern petro-states that control so much of the world's oil production.

It need not be so.

Please continue reading the Congresswoman's newsletter here... and if you're a North Carolinian (or just someone interested in the "politics", be sure to subscribe to her newsletters...  

God Bless!

Hundreds of products are recalled by the U.S. federal government each year. If a product is recalled, it must be removed from store shelves, but often recalled products can still be found on the second-hand market or in homes.

Report: Rise in anti-malaria funding is paying off
New drugs, vaccines and technologies will be enlisted within a few years in the global fight against malaria as a result of the increase in funding for research of the disease since the 1990s, according to a report released Tuesday. "In the coming years, the fruits of this unprecedented investment in malaria research and development could save hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of lives," said an official with Roll Back Malaria, which commissioned the report.  Guardian (London), The/Sarah Boseley's Global Health Blog (6/28), Reuters (6/28)
