"I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being."

Coventry gas chamber protest - 04/20/2001
Defenders of Animals organized a protest against the use of the gas chamber at the Coventry Animal Shelter. The town has since agreed to have each animal examined by a veterinarian upon arrival, to make the shelter more accessible to the public, and to euthanize most animals by injection.
