In Big Boy's Memory - Support IDA's Emergency Response Unit

STOP Cruelty! SAVE Lives!

Dear s:

We often tell you that we can't help animals without you, and it's never been truer than today.

As we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we renew our commitment to fight injustice every day. We just got news late on Friday that our fight for justice for Big Boy, an elk who lived peacefully in Boulder, Colorado before he was heartlessly gunned down by a police officer, is paying off.

Due in part to the huge response from IDA members and supporters, we are proud to report that felony charges have been filed against the officer who shot Big Boy and another who allegedly helped plot the killing! Once again you have inspired us, helping to create the just world Dr. King could only dream about.

IDA's Rita Anderson, a Boulder resident, helped mobilize that community, coordinating efforts to hold the Boulder police chief accountable for his department's actions. And while Rita was working within Boulder, other IDA staff around the country worked to generate over 25,000 petition signatures and emails from IDA supporters like you to Colorado officials on behalf of Big Boy, also known as "the Mapleton Elk."

Unfortunately, this is only one of many cruelty cases IDA is involved in. Every day, IDA's Emergency Response Unit (ERU) tackles horrific instances of animal abuse head-on. How much good we can do depends on the support of caring people like you.
