Relief aid reaches animals in Gaza

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, March 2009:
Livestock, working animals, and the surviving animals at
the Gaza Zoo on January 29, 2009 received food and veterinary
supplies donated by ANIMAL PEOPLE readers and the World Society for
the Protection of Animals. Thirty truckloads of oats, hay, and
medicines reached Gaza after the Israeli charity Let The Animals Live
won special authorization for the relief convoy from the Israeli
defense ministry. Distribution of the food and supplies in Gaza was
coordinated by Imad Atrash of the Palestine Wildlife Society. “This
collaboration between us and the Palestinians is proof that the
animals are not part of the political conflict,” said Let The
Animals Live spokesperson Eti Altman. “I am hoping that through the
animals we will be able to draw the two sides closer together.”
