Vale, N.C. – “Vale Vets: Hosts of Animal Abuse”—that’s the message PETA supporters will carry to the Vale Veterinary Hospital on Thursday as they condemn its homeowners, Drs. Steven and Melissa Matthews, for permitting the abusive Shelby Different Livestock Public sale to be held on property they personal: the Cleveland County Agriculture & Livestock Alternate. The motion follows a damning investigation by PETA, which caught employees eventually 12 months’s exotic-animal public sale on that web site kicking, whipping, shoving, and dragging weak species—together with wildlife native to different international locations, similar to wallabies and coatimundis.

When:    Thursday, March 3, 11:30 a.m.

The place:    Vale Veterinary Hospital, 9286 NC Hwy. 10 W., Vale

On the 2021 exotic-animal public sale hosted by the veterinarians, PETA documented the next:

  • Staff kicking animals, hitting them with poles, dragging goats by their horns, and holding a frantic, flailing wallaby and a coatimundi the wrong way up by the tail
  • A employee slamming a child goat’s head into steel fencing
  • Staff lifting animals—together with terrified nocturnal and prey species—into the air and jostling their cages, whereas auctioneers and sellers yelled
  • A zonkey struggling and crying out after his leg turned caught within the door of a pen (He limped in ache after he was lastly freed.)

As well as, unique cattle up for public sale, together with zebus and Watusi cows, had been skeletally skinny, with plainly seen ribs and hip bones, and animals—a few of whom had been hauled for a whole lot of miles—had been jammed into crowded pens and improvised cages so small that they couldn’t totally stand or flip round.

“No respected veterinarian would enable their property for use to hit and kick animals, drag them by their horns, or commit any of the opposite varieties of abuse PETA uncovered,” says PETA Vice President Daniel Paden. “If these vets take their oaths critically, they’ll bar this abusive exotic-animal public sale and any others from their property.”

PETA—whose motto reads, partially, that “animals should not ours to eat, use for leisure, or abuse in every other approach”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
