  Usual big losses expected in 400-mile pigeon race

More than 2,300 pigeons were released at Manfredonia in Italy yesterday 
morning for the annual 400-mile race of the season in which 23 local 
pigeon clubs took part.

Pigeon fanciers were last night anxiously waiting for their return, 
though sadly just 20 per cent ever make it back to their lofts in Malta.

Sliema Racing Pigeon Club member Richard Saliba said they would be lucky

if 50, from over 2,000, would return by last night.

"Some may stop to rest and arrive this morning. But we estimate we lose 
80 per cent of our pigeons in this race. Some may be shot down, others 
may take the wrong route, some get tired flying over the 60-mile stretch

of sea, or others may fall prey to wild birds," he said.

The pigeons allowed to take part in the longest race of the season are 
usually trained on a shorter 250-mile race from Catanzaro to Malta.

"There are usually three races from Catanzaro during the year and 
normally 70 per cent of our pigeons return," he said.

This race has been organised for the past 20 years and pigeon fanciers 
are over the moon when their pigeons finally reach their loft. The 
majority are not so lucky.

NEW YORK--Although he was my lunch guest, John Fiordaliso quickly

my responsibilities as host. He urged me out of the elevator first so
that
he could keep an eye on me. Before glancing at the menu, he checked out
the location of the exit doors. And he assured me that as soon as the
shooting started, he would throw himself across the table, pull me to
the
floor, then drag me a yard or so behind the stone columns, which would
offer protection from bullets.

An attack could come from one of several classes of adversaries: a
disgruntled employee, an animal rights or antiglobalization activist, a
kidnapper, a mentally disturbed family member or associate, or, of
course,
a terrorist.

[from San Francisco Chronicle]

ANIMAL-RIGHTS activists went to the home of a Chiron Corp. employee one
night last year to send a message. They pounded on her front door, rang
her doorbell, and shouted, "open the door, followed by an epithet.
Another night, they shouted through bullhorns then bragged about it on
the Internet. Someone also exploded two pipe bombs in her workplace.

Her crime? She was a paralegal for the Emeryville company, which engages
in animal research to develop vaccines and other life-saving products.
It
was her bad luck that Chiron had contracted with the animal-research
firm
Huntingdon Life Sciences -- and worse luck that animal-rights activists
had formed a group committed to putting Huntingdon out of business. A
group that was willing to intimidate any individual toward that end.

Last week, the feds indicted seven members of the group Stop Huntingdon
Animal Cruelty -- including three Pinole residents -- for stalking,
harassing and intimidating employees at Huntingdon, Chiron and other
concerns. The courts will decide if these individuals are guilty as
charged. A SHAC spokesperson told The Chronicle the charges are
"completely unfounded," then said this is "a classic First Amendment
case."

WELLSVILLE &#8212; The Sheehy Family says their dairy business was
ruined
following the seizure of 111 cows by the Allegany County Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals on Aug. 22, 2001. They have since filed
a lawsuit against the animal shelter seeking damages that total over $13
million.

The Allegany County SPCA had alleged Robert and Sandra Sheehy failed to
provide proper medical attention for the cows and their dairy herd was
malnourished. They were charged with several counts of cruelty to
animals, which are misdemeanor charges.
