Message: Thank you for reporting on Mercy For Animals’ undercover investigation into animal abuse at an illegal backyard slaughter facility.

I am writing to notify you of an update in the case. Roberto Celedon, who illegally butchered animals in his backyard, pleaded guilty to one felony and one misdemeanor through a plea agreement, and was sentenced to 90 days in jail.

Yesterday (June 26, 2012), he began his sentence. In addition to jail time, Celedon received 5 years’ probation.

He must pay nearly $4,000 in fines and attend 48 animal cruelty classes.

Celedon is prohibited from possessing or owning animals, operating a meat-producing facility, attending auctions where animals are sold, and selling meat products.

I hope that you have a great day.

News like this means we will have a great day ! – a prosecution like this shows so much why the US  ‘Ag Gag’ legislation needs to be scrapped.

** Danica’s message to us is as follows:

Hello, Mark,

I just wanted to share some news with you. 

Believe it or not, I have 12 new kitties, including that poor mother cat and her babies!

All of them arrived from Belgrade. My new kitties are Giuseppe (a grown up male dumped on the street, well rounded and neutered), Klea (rescued from some concrete backyard where a pack of dogs was killing cats on a regular basis, she is a blue-eyed white female), Alethe and her newborn kittens, five of them (she gave birth in a pizzeria) little Kami (a tortie kitten) and three siblings Edan, Ivor and Arrow (their owner didn’t want them anymore).  

Alethe’s babies are doing well and getting bigger every day. Kami, Edan, Ivor and Arrow are kept indoors while all the other kitties are in my backyard, enjoying the summer. 

Roofing repairs will start this weekend; wish us luck!

There’s always a lot going on here…

Warm regards

Danica

Building materials arrive and the work starts !
