The C.A.S.H. Courier Newsletter
Summer-Fall 2012 Issue
Letter From the President
What makes me certain that hunting is headed toward extinction is the
mail we receive from the public, and not those who are necessarily
members or supporters. In Ask Uncle Joe of this issue of the C.A.S.H.
Courier, you’ll find a letter written by a parent who wants to know how
to teach his son respect for wildlife. We trust you will find our
response of value.
Our supporters in the eastern states may not know
about the brutal killing of prairie dogs. Prairie dogs have a beneficial
effect on the environment, but hunters and ranchers who have never met a
species of wildlife they haven’t wanted to destroy are killing them in
the most horrible ways imaginable. We’ve written a piece on these
terribly maligned animals which will motivate you to take the suggested
actions to help stop the barbarity.
Through our popular Facebook page
we have been able to connect with people from around the world and
educate and motivate them. Through one appeal on our page, we were able
to speak to wildlife rehabilitators who were kind enough to be
interviewed. We’ve published their thoughts in the Courier as a way to
inform our readers about what wildlife rehabilitators do and the
challenges they face.
Here are just some of our new and ongoing
efforts since our last publication….
• Maintaining the highly active
C.A.S.H. Facebook page. Our page has been a way to connect with
thousands of people from around the country and world to deliver our
message of abolishing hunting.

C.A.S.H.’S Joe Miele had an impromptu discussion about sport fishing at
the local food co-op, which turned into an invitation for C.A.S.H. to
speak about the subject on an upcoming local radio show.
As hunting season approaches we’ll be inundated with phone calls,
e-mails, and personal accounts of wounded animals, trespassing and
intimidating hunters, and the horror of hearing gunfire, both legal and
illegal, throughout all hours of the day and night. C.A.S.H. is here to
help when and as we can, and to the animals and the people we help, that
Please support our work so we can continue to be
