From ANIMAL PEOPLE, October 2002:
SACRAMENTO– Why doesn’t Animal Protection Institute
executive director Alan Berger answer questions from ANIMAL PEOPLE
any more about conditions at the Texas Snow Monkey Sanctuary in
Dilley, Texas, annexed by API in January 2000?
ANIMAL PEOPLE editor Merritt Clifton asked Berger that
question in person at the August 2002 Conference on Homeless Animal
Management and Policy in Reno, Nevada.
“Why bother?” Berger responded.
ANIMAL PEOPLE forwarded to Berger nine photographs of reasons
to bother on July 25, 2002, along with a copy of a July 15 cruelty
complaint against API filed by San Antonio attorney Juan Gonzalez on
behalf of Lou Griffin, the snow monkey sanctuary director for more
than 22 years.
