Does Mr. Trimble know who he's financing?

Skip Trimble continues to drink the PETA Kool-Aid.

I had a look at and there were the newest 990 forms for his nonprofit, The Foundation for All Creatures. 

The Foundation forked out an additional $9,000 to PETA over the past two tax years:  $7,000 in 2010 and $2,000 in 2011.

Considering that PETA is a proven killer of animals, and PETA's Ingrid Newkirk believes that feral cats should all die, should Skip be associated with Dallas' Animal Shelter Commission?  Especially since the city is pretending to support TNR for ferals? I think not.

I think it's time to gather up the evidence and visit the next Shelter Commission meeting. I can't imagine why Skip continues to throw money at PETA (especially since he's contributed to Kittico - a rescue that PETA would never support) so I think it's time to ask him. In person.

Skippy and his $52,000 PETA connection

By the looks of his 990 tax forms, Skip Trimble didn't win an award from PETA - he bought it.

From 2001 to 2010, Skip's nonprofit, The Foundation for All Creatures, gave a total of $52,700 to PETA.

The Foundation also gave $45,000 to the HSUS in 2001. The HSUS pension fund managers must have come in their pants when that check arrived.

The Foundation's donations contain more than a little irony: Kittico, once a major TNR advocate, received a total of $10,000. Considering that PETA believes in killing ferals - NOT TNR - one of these contributions wasn't well thought-out.

Read all about it here, at A and N Research.  I'm currently looking for the 2011 tax return for the Foundation, but it's probably a bit early to post.

Cat killings and mutilations in Casa View

Over the past six weeks (late June to this week), there have been at least three cases of cats being killed and mutilated in the Casa View area of East Dallas.  An equally disturbing fact is that, although the mutilations have been reported twice to Dallas police, no investigation of any sort has been done.

The first cat mutilation was reported to have happened on San Juan Street, where a resident found one of his cats literally gutted and left on his front porch. The police were called and attempted to an interview a neighbor known to have trapped and removed cats from a managed feral colony in the neighborhood. The neighbor - a DISD employee - refused to talk to police, so the police left. No followup was carried out.

The second incident in late July was similar to the first, except that the cat's gutted body was left in the owner's front yard. Again, the police were called but made no real effort to investigate. The cat's owner described the police as "being an ass about the situation".

I would ask readers to please repost and forward this information to all residents of the Casa View, and to ask any and all residents of the area to please keep their cats indoors 24/7 if at all possible.

I will post updates when I receive them. Currently there are plans to offer a reward to identify the waste of oxygen who is responsible for these acts, especially since the local police have forgotten that cruelty is now a felony in our state.
