Animal Cruelty and Neglect Laws-  Please Make Certain to verify the accuracy of each state law by contacting your local animal law enforcement agency and request the EXACT citations for your state.

  1. IF YOU SUSPECT AN INCIDENT OF ANIMAL CRUELTY, ALWAYS START BY REPORTING IT TO THE APPROPRIATE LEGAL AUTHORITIES.  It is rare that law enforcement will just go with anonymous tips. BE PREPARED to leave your name and contact information.

 

  1. RECORD THE DATE AND TIME AND NAME OF THE INDIVIDUAL SPOKEN WITH.  ASK FOR SOME FORM OF INCIDENT NUMBER. 

 

  1. ASK FOR SOMEONE TO MEET YOU AT THE SCENE, IF YOU SUSPECT AN ANIMAL IS IN IMMEDIATE PERIL INSISENT ON IT HAPPENING IMMEDIATELY.

 

  1. IF POSSIBLE, HAVE MORE THAN ONE PERSON WITNESS THE SCENE, TAKE NOTES, AND IF POSSIBLE WITHOUT VIOLATING ANY TRESPASSING LAWS  TAKE PICTURES.

 

The best most recent resource I have found regarding one site for all state animal cruelty laws can be found at Michigan State University College of Law Animal Legal and Historical Center web site [as of April 12, 2009]

Llama and Alpaca Training

Cathy Spalding Alpaca and Llama Training Clinics the Gentle Spirit Way : Behavior and Training Clinics for Llamas and Alpacas (and the humans they own).  I have had the experience of watching Cathy in action and was doubly blessed to be asked to host a clinic put on her by in the past. It was well worth the time.  Her LLAMA TALK © CD is a true first and must be seen to be fully appreciated!  If you’ve done it once do it again! The second time around is even better!

John Mallon - Gentling & Training Llamas: Employing common sense and logic to build trust between owner and llama.  I took the opportunity to attend one of John’s Clinics in the spring of 2003 and indeed the logic and approach has provided excellent insights into the mind of a llama. Another repeat clinic is in order for us very soon!

Marty McGee Bennett, Llama & Alpaca Training : Marty McGee has been a llama/alpaca enthusiast since 1982, studied and practiced TTeam since 1987.  I have not had the opportunity to attend a clinic YET, but have taken the opportunity to watch her videos and have gleaned much from them.  I can only imagine what face to face would be like, and sounds like an opportunity may be coming soon!.

Jim Logan Click & Reward Llama Training : Positive reinforcement training technique developed especially for lamas.  Again his videos and approach to working with llamas is another set of opportunities to just add to your knowledge base.
