"To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men."
"I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being."
~ Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the U.S.

Shooting deer in neighborhood - 11/07/1999
Residents and Defenders of Animals questioned authorities as to why frightened deer were not tranquilized. Here is what the supervising wildlife biologist, Lori Supprock,said: "Bambi is a cartoon. We can't make public safety decisions based on a cartoon." She also stated: "Tranquilizing wildlife just makes people feel better…it doesn't solve any problem." This attitude is one of the reasons why Rhode Island is so behind in scientific and humane operating methods.
