2017 – Tippah County Still Abusing Domestic Rabbits for Entertainment
Aug 19, 2017 — Please sign the Petition by “In Defense of Animals” at the link below:
*** Organizers and sponsors of the fair, the sheriff, and government officials from the Governor of Mississippi, the District Attorney, and the Animal Board of Health have so-far failed to enforce MSSS 97-41-5, the statute that prohibits the cruel carrying of animals, and MSSS 97-41-1 which outlaws the tormenting of animals. Although the Animal Board of Health had sent materials on the proper handling of rabbits and rabbit care to the children who caught rabbits and chose to take them home last year, it has no enforcement powers, nor the will to intercede and protect animals***.
A disgraceful reminder of the “Traditional” animal abuse in Tippah County, going on for over 27 years according to supporters of this fair.
The cruelty at this event is barbaric and inhumane, please continue to share this petition to help educate the public that this disrespect and abuse of animal life is not acceptable and that animal cruelty laws Lack in Punishment in Mississippi and need reform.
Thank you for your continued support,
For The Rabbits,
Abusing Animals For Fun Continues in Tippah County MS
