Protest Monday at Ferris City hall
Ferris - Animal rights activists and supporters nationwide are joining together in effort to protest outside Ferris City Hall Monday, July 20 at 6 p.m.
Due to the recent controversy of a mandatory euthanasia policy that garnered media attention around the metroplex and beyond, John J.Pippin, M.D., F.A.C.C. is helping organize opposition to the mandatory kill order.
"This order will force the Ferris animal shelter to revert from its incredible turnaround under Misty's [Clark, animal control officer] into an animal Auschwitz," said Pippin.
Pippin, is a senior medical research adviser for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a nationwide organization of physicians and laypersons promoting preventive medicine and addressing controversies in modern medicine, including ethical and scientific issues in education and research.
"Ferris citizens will not stand for this," said Pippin.
According to Ferris officials, Misty Clark was hired as an Animal Control Officer to pickup strays and handle other animal issues.
She was not hired to start an animal rescue operation, according to Mayor Pro Tem Bill Purdue
