AFA Keeps Animal Issues In the Public Eye with Billboards, City Bus, and Theater Ads
Just in time for hunting season! Ten Madison city buses will display our “This Year Shoot with a Camera” message starting after Labor Day.
And commuters on Hwy. 51 will not be able to miss our “Wisconsin Pays Hunters” billboard, which we have brought back for one more month to remind Wisconsin taxpayers that our taxes go to reimburse “hounders” when their dogs are killed when put in harm’s way. Read about how Wisconsin pays hunters here.
In addition to the bus ads and the billboards, those whose who see a movie at the very popular Hilldale AMC theater will be reminded that “All Beings Want to be Happy,” so be kind, and go vegan.
Help us put up more more billboards, bus ads, and advertisement throughout Wisconsin by donating to our Billboard Campaign. We can’t do it without you. For all the animals, thank you.
We are thrilled to announce that the city of Madison did NOT kill any Canada geese this year – nor do they plan to! The City of Madison Parks Division has made a huge effort to implement humane methods this past year. Because of this, countless lives were saved.
This year Madison Parks addled more eggs and started a new volunteer program asking people to count and haze geese at all of the parks. Hazing might sound like something a college fraternity might do, but in this case all it means is clapping your hands and walking towards them to indicate they aren’t welcome. These methods might sound somewhat cruel, but they are extremely kind in comparison to the alternative. Here is an article the Isthmus put out recently about Madison Parks efforts and volunteering.

New Dissection Policy for Madison Metropolitan School District
MMSD families must be notified if their children are to take part in dissection activities or to watch dissection demonstrations AND must be given an equally educational alternative if the family/student chooses not to participate due to religious, moral, or ethical beliefs regarding animals. Madison Metropolitan School District Principals and Department Chairs were sent messages about the policy from Patti Schaefer, Director of STEM.
