The Humane Society of the United States on Tuesday weighed in on the case of a sea lion stabbed in Newport Beach, urging officials to diligently prosecute the man suspected of stabbing the animal. Police arrested Hai Nguyen, 24, of Garden Grove Friday on suspicion of stabbing a sea lion that took the bait from his pole as he fished off the M Street Pier. The sea lion was euthanized at Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach. In a letter to Orange County Dist. Atty. Tony Rackauckas, Dale Bartlett of the Humane Society asked that Rackauckas "diligently pursue this case and to seek, upon conviction, a meaningful sentence that includes jail time and mandatory psychological counseling."

Jennifer Kho HUNTINGTON BEACH -- Higgens, a yellow Labrador mix found spray-painted in Costa Mesa last week, remained homeless Friday, Orange County Humane Society employees said. After a Daily Pilot article about Higgens' plight Thursday, the society received "some calls about [Higgens], but only one or two people have come down to see him," said Julie Douglas, a Humane Society employee. "He's very timid," she added. His shyness could be one of the reasons Higgens has not been adopted, Douglas said.

KELLY Kelly was named after Helen Keller because she is blind. The 6-year-old Egyptian Mao moves around the house well and has no problem finding her litter box and food. Raylene adopted Kelly from the Humane Society when she was just a kitten, knowing she was born with a corneal birth defect. Unfortunately, she later lost both her eyes. Two Himalayans, Meisha and Mimi, are still available for adoption. They have a combined veterinary bill of just over $900 from health exams that included blood panels and urinalysis, teeth cleaning and grooming to prepare them for adoption.

Lindsay Sandham A hundred bucks can pay for a lot of toys and candy. At least, that's what many children might consider buying with $100. Not Roxana Crane, 9, and Lauren Willard, 10, both of Costa Mesa. The two friends spent two weeks baby-sitting, dog-walking and selling their arts and crafts until they had raised more than $100 -- $106.54 to be exact -- and donated it all to the Orange County Humane Society. "We walked in with a bucket full of money and these two really big dog houses," Roxana said.

The Newport-Mesa school district has suspended the service of all beef products indefinitely due to an act by the United States Department of Agriculture, according to school officials. The stoppage is a result of an “administrative hold” on all beef products purchased under a contract with Westland Meat Company of Chino due to recent reports of inhumane activities at one of the company’s slaughterhouses, according to Richard Green, director of nutrition services for Newport-Mesa Unified School District.

Have you seen the video from the Humane Society of the United States showing slaughterhouse workers using forklifts and other inhumane means to move “downer” cattle for a Chino-based supplier of meat for the National School Lunch Program? There are many words that immediately come to mind, of course. Cruel, disgusting, immoral. Whether it was criminal will be determined by the authorities. But in the meantime, the federal government has suspended the company and is doing its best to track the beef so that it won’t enter the food supply.

Deepa Bharath Former volunteers at a Huntington Beach animal shelter protested yet again Saturday, this time alleging that shelter administrators had neglected the animals on Thanksgiving Day. At least 25 former volunteers gathered outside the Orange County Humane Society on Newland Street Saturday, said Shelly Hunter, who has been spearheading the protests. But Costa Mesa Animal Control officers who investigated Hunter's complaint found all animals had been fed, given water and cared for during the holiday, Costa Mesa Police Lt. John FitzPatrick said.

The claims of the lower animals to human compassion and consideration as living, sentient beings are writ large in Hebrew Biblical thought. The ancient rabbis tell how Moses, while a shepherd of Jethro’s flocks, seeks out a stray lamb and tenderly carries the tired creature in his arms back to the fold. God then announces to Moses, “You are worthy to be My people’s shepherd.” The Fourth Commandment stipulates the right of animals to rest on the Sabbath.

Abandoned and stray animals found in Costa Mesa streets could be sent to the Orange County Humane Society shelter in Huntington Beach as soon as next month, as the City Council unanimously approved a contract with the shelter Tuesday night. Now, the city’s roughly 1,100 live stray animals a year are sent to the Irvine Animal Care Center. Irvine told Costa Mesa last year that it will be able to accommodate animals from Irvine only. The main options Costa Mesa considered for a new contract were the county’s shelter in Orange and the Orange County Humane Society shelter, and they went with the Humane Society, which was more than $100,000 cheaper and closer.

Barring an unforeseen turnaround in City Council sentiment, Costa Mesa appears to be headed toward taking its stray and confiscated animals to the Orange County Humane Society shelter in the near future. At a study session Tuesday, all four of the council members present (Councilman Eric Bever was absent) said that they favor signing a contract with the Huntington Beach shelter. Some local animal rights activists and former shelter volunteers have questioned the quality of care that animals get at the facility, but the council was convinced that the city staff was working with the owner, Dr. Samir Botros, to remedy most of the past problems.
