Q: Have you heard of Colorado CLAWS?
twice today i have run across supposed news stories regarding animal abuse, both stories coming from a "Colorado CLAWS" blog, which has only been around since the beginning of this year. both news stories link to petitions on thepetitionsite.com , and both petitions are sponsored by "CLAWS".
the thing is...i can't find *any* reference to either of these 2 news stories anywhere else at all, and one of these stories took place in New Orleans, so there definitely would have been major buzz locally.
these are the stories:
can anyone else find any reference to either of these stories through a legitimate news organization? i've run across a "CLAWS Rescue and Adoption Center" in Grand Junction, Colorado ( www.adoptapet.com/adoption_rescue/78123.html ). i contacted them directly by email and they confirmed that they are in no way affiliated with this blog.
does anyone know anything more about this so-called "Colorado CLAWS"?

None of my Houston rescue contacts have heard of the Houston incident. The only info I've received from anyone is that everyone in the rescue community is beginning to think the reports are false. No one has been able to verify either one of them & there are a couple of other questionable stories & petitions on their site as well. There would be some record or some news report if this had happened, but so far everything leads right back to CLAWS.
