Wise Women Media for 5/7/12-A PREMIER GUEST RETURNS! CAROLYNE MAS, MUSICIAN, ACTIVIST AND ANIMAL ADVOCATE
We are welcoming back tonight's special guest -- Carolyne Mas, award winning singer/songwriter, activist, animal advocate! She will tell us all about the demise of her animal sanctuary, the Animal Haus in Brooksville, Florida in 2009. Carolyne has since relocated to the SW region of the United States but the horrific animal rights abuses still continue in Hernando County Florida by the local agencies in this part of of the state. Some tips on what you should do to protect yourself and your animals. No one is exempt and this really is all about the money. Don't miss this show!
MORE FROM CAROLYNE:
Our Animal Haus was a sanctuary for elderly, unwanted, and abused animals in Brooksville, FL. It was owned and operated by former Rock 'n' Roll recording artist Carolyne Mas. On October 30, almost 200 animals were seized because of false allegations made by Animal Control. These animals included all of the dogs, all of the cats, perfectly healthy exotic birds, as well as healthy pure bred horses and ponies. Animal Control would end up putting down all of the elderly dogs and all of the cats, robbing them of living out the rest of their lives in peace. They would, however, go on to profit from the sale of the birds and the horses, and a handful of small pure-bred dogs.
Presently there are cases all across the US where Animal Control or the local Humane Society have acted outside the scope of local ordinances and have illegally confiscated animals, from valuable show dogs and show cats, to well-kept breeding birds, to thoroughbred horses.
Apparently these local officials have learned that they can achieve three goals:
1) adopt out (sell) animals and property for money,
2) receive donations from the public for their "good" work
3) receive commendations from their superiors
Therefore, they have financial reasons for "taking animals under color of law." However, they generally use the argument that the animals are abused, not properly cared for, starving, or treated cruelly. They are quick to euthanize any animals that will be too much trouble to keep and that cannot be adopted to the public for money. These many types of cases are being documented due to this outrageous assault on constitutional rights of animal owners in the U.S.
Carolyne's Fourth Amendment rights were clearly violated by the illegal search and seizure of her animals and expensive bird cages, and Animal Control fast-tracked her case, acting often without any official paperwork allowing them to do so, robbing Carolyne of her Fifth Amendment right to due process; she was never given enough time to secure an attorney.
Carolyne has decided to go public with her side of the story in lieu of the recent euthanization of Zeus, an adoptable dog who had been brought into Hernando County AC and euthanized within 15 minutes, as well as the numerous allegations against Animal Control of excessive euthanization, animal abuse, and dumping bodies in a local land fill.
