Subject: Book Release: Staring the Dragon in the Eye
Dear Kennel Club members,
I‚€™m writing to tell you a story that is near and dear to my heart. It is a story about how someone tried to do everything ‚€˜right.‚€™ Showing dogs in the dog show ring in both AKC and UKC. Showings dogs in 4H, Junior Showmanship, Rally, Obedience, Agility and tracking. Training dogs to be both therapy and service dogs. Conducting full genetic health testing and putting the elite CHIC certification on dogs. Taking part in the long term UC Davis study on Addison‚€™s disease in the dog. You would think that this would be someone taken seriously. Someone of trust. Someone untouchable.
The problem is, animal rights activists do not care about your fancy champions. They do not care about health testing, laboratory studies or any sort of fancy ideals. Animal rights activists view service dogs as ‚€œanimal slaves‚€� deserving of freedom from their enslavers. You, in other words.
Until show breeders and exhibitors get that through their heads and understand that no matter how ‚€˜right‚€™ you try to do things, in the end, animal rights activists do not care. You are chasing your tail.
I am writing you to let you know my story. But it isn't just ‚€œmy‚€� story. It is actually the story of the death of my dogs. You see, when my home was raided by animal rights terrorists, I wasn't the one who was hurt the most. My animals were. To honor their memory, I have written a book to tell their side of the story. A story that the media will not tell you. The media has turned 180 from the past and now report the news as if these private SWAT teams run by animal ‚€˜charities‚€™ are the heroes and not the thieves that they are. It is the mainstream media that refuses to cover the reality of what legislation says and will do to citizens. It is the mainstream media that would not tell the truth to Virginia residents when the Commonwealth passed legislation that enacted law that acts as civil asset forfeiture for your family dog. That‚€™s right, your dog.
Animal rights activists are targeting your dogs, like they did mine for two reasons. Ideology and cold hard cash. You see, there are millions to be made in all tax free profit from running animal raids on law abiding owners. The lead animal rights groups in this nation regularly pull in $100 million a year from unsuspecting members of the public. Your local government run animal shelter may be ‚€˜broke‚€™ but these activists are far, far from it. Money raised by theft of property and by outright fraud. Activities that used to be considered crimes but are now whitewashed in the press.
My book, Staring the Dragon in the Eye: The Hidden Victims of Animal Extremists is due to be released soon via Amazon.com .
Dragon is the first book ever to show what an animal rights raid looks like from the inside from the point of view of the victim. From the blow by blow action in which the activists reveal their lack of animal knowledge, to the law enforcement officers lack of knowledge of the law, to the twisted lobbying of a state legislature by a convicted terrorist from the Animal Liberation Front (ALF), Dragon covers it all.
This book, while focused on the lives and ultimate destruction of a family of poodles, is so much more. The animal rights movement has had a broad impact on the freedom and rights of Americans everywhere ranging from impacting economic liberty, to excessive licensing and regulation, violating private property rights, constitutional rights, overcriminalization of animal owners, civil asset forfeiture laws for animals, color of law abuse, America‚€™s failed war on drugs, and much more.
Not only can you lose your business, your house, and your car, but you can also now lose your family dog under civil asset forfeiture laws. For far too long the legal field has ignored the constitutional rights of animal owners in favor of elevating the rights of animals above that of human beings. It is time that was changed.
