or "Harvesting" Animals for Blood and Organs: "Xenotransplantation"
or the use of animals as "blood & organ harvesting machines" is far
from safe and may be the means of introducing deadly new viral diseases
into the human population, for which there are no known cures.
It is speculated by the scientific community that the AIDS HIV virus was
introduced by human contact with tissue and plasma from a Rhesus monkey
used by animal experimenters several years ago. While the HIV virus
had no effect on a Rhesus monkey's health, it caused deadly effects when
introduced to a human host. Xenotransplantation could unleash
other potentially deadly effects upon human health; not to mention the
cruelty involved in breeding and imprisoning intelligent, emotional beings
to "harvest" their body parts and blood.

you involved in community events or corporate sponsorship programs? If
your town is planning to have a circus that features animals, please inform
your local government officials about the cruelties performing animals
have to endure, and provide them with a list of alternative circuses that
feature human performers. Some top non-animal circuses are:
Cirque du Soleil, 1217 Notre-Dame St., East; Montreal, Quebec H2L 2R3;
Circus Chimera, 222 E. Jefferson St.; PO Box 842; Hugo, OK 74743;
Cirque Ingenieux, 10430 Scenario Lane; Los Angeles, CA 90077;
and over again young boys and adults WITH A HISTORY OF ANIMAL ABUSE AND
torture are murdering children and adults in this nationís schools, churches
and work places. We must once again write and educate lawmakers,
officials and community leaders on the animal-human violence connection.
Most people, while well-intentioned, only act when the health and safety
of their children and fellow humans are adversely affected. Letís
make them aware of the animal-human violence connection, loud and clear.
