  •  Took actions to vigorously oppose NB 574 in the North Carolina state legislature; the bill legalizes the so-called “Possum Drop” which has been used in North Carolina in the observance of New Year celebrations. The bill suspends all animal protection laws from applying to opossums from December 29th  of each year to January 2nd of the subsequent year. We sent letters to every member of the North Carolina legislature as well as the governor of North Carolina opposing this perverse bill to specifically permit torture of opossums. Nevertheless the bill passed both houses with only about 20% of the legislators voting against the bill. The governor then did sign this bill into law.

  •  Scheduled to speak in opposition to hunting at Green Mtn College in VT in a pro-hunting course.
