ENPA gets ex-Mafia farm

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, June 2007:
ROME–Fourteen years after the late American SPCA president
Roger Caras issued a tongue-in-cheek appeal to Mafioso to leave their
estates to animal welfare, the Italian national animal charity ENPA
has received one–in a manner of speaking. Confiscated from the
Sicilian Mafia, the small farm near Palermo was judicially awarded
to ENPA for use in teaching humane and moral education. The farm
will produce honey, beeswax, and natural silk by methods that do
not harm the insects.
