I am hoping to attend the meeting later this month with Florida Fish & Wildlife. This sick abuse of wildlife HAS to stop; it is difficult to comprehend that it is actually LEGAL.

I inquired about this with the FWC several months ago and was told the Commission had a temporary moratorium on the transportation of any animals until further notice. It's a temporary reprieve. See more here:

http://www.myfwc.com/docs/CommissionMeetings/2009/2009_Dec_Minutes_September09.pdf#search="fox and coyote pens"

Call, write or use the online form and voice your concerns, outrage and demands on this this issue.

Please go to the FWC's homepage here: http://myfwc.com/CONTACT/index.htm

Lord, open our eyes, that we may see you in our brothers and sisters.

Open our ears, that we may hear the cries of hungry, the cold, the frightened, the oppressed.

Open our hearts, that we may love each other as you love us.
~~Mother Teresa~~

Open our eyes,that we may protect the animals,

it is so so so sad,to see all the Pain,what Human do to the Animals.
We must be the Voice,who scream for them...
