Below, please find a statement from PETA Senior Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch in response to today’s sentencing of Jurassic Pets Manager Brian Kubic:
While no sentence could account for the pain and fear that Brian Kubic inflicted on countless animals, the court’s limitation of his contact with animals is an important step in the right direction. We look to the Colorado Department of Agriculture to terminate all the Kubics’ licenses without further delay and to stop the Kubics from freezing animals alive, “whacking” them against hard surfaces, and leaving them to starve and drown. Kind people can make a difference today by adopting—and never buying—animals and by purchasing supplies for their companions only from retailers that don’t sell any live animals.
The full details of the Jurassic Pets investigation by PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—are available here.
