He tells me about the absurdity of the aspca, the Humane Society of the United States, and PETA.
One of the largest humane societies in the world, the aspca has been preventing cruelty to animals for over 150 years.
Then again, all the aspca had to do was look internally to see that suing Feld might not have been justified.
During the same period the aspca raked in its haul, the Humane Society of the United States brought in even more: $131.2 million.
In December, PAWS and the three individuals dropped out, leaving Rider, aspca, FFA, and AWI.
That action is now pending, no doubt one reason why the aspca settled.
The staff of aspca's NYC Adoption Center are sleeping on cots at the shelter to make sure animals there stay safe.
The aspca, the NYPD, and the Department of Buildings all differed in comment on the matter.
Many contributors agree to donate $18 a month, helping the aspca to bring in $111.3 million for the year ending June 2010.
The aspca sued Ringling Brothers, but ended up paying the circus $9.3 million to help cover its legal bills.
