The mayor of Grosse Tete has been silent through all this, but he made his feelings on it clear several months ago. Now that his email address has been obtained, let's tell him what we think. Be creative.....

Mayor of Grosse Tete:

Michael Chauffe

P.O. Box 98

18125 Willow St.

Gross Tete, LA 70740


quote from him: " I don't give a fuck if that tiger is here or not."

a few talking points you may want to bring up to him:

-roadside zoos are very unpopular and politically incorrect these days.
-a very small town that has to keep a tiger in a parking lot to get people to stop there is not likely to attract new businesses to the area.
-a mayor should indeed 'give a fuck' about the town he is responsible for. safety  issues, reputation, etc....
-why does he let his town fall into the corruption trap- allowing one rich guy to cause all this trouble, esp. when the keeping of this tiger has been illegal for years?
-is he in charge of his town, or is he a mere figurehead that allows the parish council to make all of the decisions about Grosse Tete?

Sarka is what you call a 100% survivor! She has lived at the BSAPP rescue centre for the past three years and all of us at BSAPP understand just how special she is. When a Bulgarian supporter of BSAPP rescued her, she was found so badly beaten that she could only lift her head!

Three years later Sarka can just bring herself to a standing position. You will not find a more loving dog, as she holds no grudges against anyone. She is satisfied sitting in the sun, chewing on bones and lounging in her newly built enclosure.

But we want so much more for her, she deserves as much help as we can give her and the opportunity to do the one thing most of us take for granted – WALK!

Vets Asking For Donations To Help Care For Lovable Pet

(CB PORT JEFFERSON, N.Y. A Long Island animal shelter is reaching out to the public for help after a dog was found bound to a tree and set on fire last week.

Veterinarians from the Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue center in Port Jefferson have been caring for "Maximus," a mixed breed who suffered severe burns after someone chained him to a tree, doused him with gasoline, and set him on fire in Brentwood. The badly burned animal was found by a resident and taken immediately to the Veterinary Medical Center of Long Island for emergency care.

Maximus suffered second- and third-degree burns on more than 60 percent of his body and medical expenses have totaled more than $3,000 for his aid.

Veterinarian Dori Scofield, Director of Save-A-Pet, has been caring for Maximus and says his chances for survival are good, but she's asking for donations from the public in order to continue caring for the lovable pet, who's maintained high spirits despite his pain.

“We can’t allow such horrific crimes be committed against our companion animals. Although Maximus has made progress, he needs a great deal of treatment and has a long road of recovery ahead,” Scofield said.

Maximus was said to be "alert and friendly to everyone at the VMCLI, wagging his tail and licking the staff caring for him."

Once he fully recovers, Maximus will be up for adoption at the center. Neither his former owners or the perpetrators who left him to die have been found.

For more information about Maximus and how to contribute to his medical treatment, call (631) 473-6333 or click here.
