Update: Urge Highfill, Arkansas, to Protect Bald Eagles From Developers (Again)!

Last year, PETA was alerted to the proposed rezoning of land along W. Arkansas Highway 12 in Highfill, Arkansas, which is reportedly a well-established nesting area for bald eagles. After hearing from PETA supporters, town officials voted against issuing permits that would allow billion-dollar development company D.R. Horton to bulldoze and build on the land. Sadly, just months later, we’ve been told that new permits to develop the land are already being considered. The next council meeting is scheduled for February 13, and the next planning commission meeting is scheduled for February 27.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
