Pursue Maximum Charges for Thousands of Neglected Chickens

Last week, Connecticut officials euthanized over 2,500 chickens and two ducks seized from Tang Quan "Jason" Lin. Officials found numerous dead animals; the living birds were sick, living in squalor and had apparently not been given food or water in days. He was planning to sell them at an Asian live bird market in Boston.

Lin, who is from Massachusetts, has been arrested two times in the last three years for animal cruelty. The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals seized 719 chickens and 303 ducks from his Massachusetts farm a few years ago. They also found about 100 dead birds among the live ones. The Massachusetts court let Lin off "without a finding," a ruling similar to probation.

In 2007, Lin was also cited for housing chickens and ducks in his house without a permit. He supposedly got rid of them, but a follow-up inspection found several hundred baby chicks.

Lin has repeatedly shown that he has no concern for the welfare of his animals and that he will continue to mistreat birds. Ask the State's Attorney to pursue the maximum charges against Lin to stop the cycle of cruelty.

      We should nurture compassionate thought. Since we wish to live, we should not kill any other living being. Furthermore, the karma of killing is understood as the root of all suffering and the fundamental cause of sickness and war, and the forces of killing are explicitly identified with the demonic. The highest and most universal ideal of Buddhism is to work unceasingly for permanent end to the suffering of all living beings, not just humans.

      'With the Medicine Buddha mantra you can liberate numberless sentient beings from oceans of suffering and bring them to enlightenment.' - Lama Zopa. Tayata Om Bekanze Bekanze Maha BeKanze Radza Samudgate Soha
