HLN (Headline News channel) personality, Jane Velez-Mitchell, filmed
an editorial this week about the horrendous animal-related goings-on
late here in Puerto Rico..........
We sent the video of her editorial to many government officials here
in Puerto Rico. See below for the link and info.
We are still fighting the case of the proposed Bioculture company
monkey breeding farm. The company appealed the injunction which
their construction in late December, and a panel of judges in
Rico appeals court overturned the injunction in January,
construction of this facility continues. The appeal continues
"our" side has submitted our objections to the appeal and
overturning of the injunction. For background, see blog posts
