DC 101's support of Animal neglect & abuse sign now

Radio Station DC 101
Washington DC

Listen to their morning radio show long enough, and you too will be grabbing at your phone to warn about this public display of animal neglect.
The DJ Elliot of DC101, is owner to several cats and dogs currently. He most recently had 3 ferrets of which he claimed to not have enough time for them, so he gave them away to a human society, only after being badgered by his sidekick Diane about whether or not he gave them away or let them loose like the rest of the animals he's lost interest in.
Today's morning show Feb. 15th 2002 was a discussion about what pet he should get next, and to also keep around the studio. Pot Bellied Pigs were at the top of the list, a caller spoke to them saying how he had a really nice big one that he would love to get rid of because it eats everything.

Him and his fellow DJ Diane are also looking for Pot Bellied Pig shelters online where they might be able to obtain one. However Elliot knows nothing about the care and raising of Pot Bellied Pigs but insist on having his next pet to be more exotic.

Several people had called and emailed Elliot on his animal neglect cases before his only comment to them was, "I don't care".
Two women callers had called up this morning confronting him about it, in which he answered "Yeah, whatever." He aired one woman's call about how she let her kids pet hamster outside to roam free after she got sick of it stating, "I'm sure he had a good time playing outside!"
Elliot also proclaims that Human Societies are No Kill, and that shelters are the horrible places owners could take there pets. Another lady called and informed him that humane societies euthanasia with in 10 days. As I have worked in a humane society, it ranges from 2 days to 2 months. Elliot still did not believe or care that humane societies DO euthanasia.
Diane followed up by saying "So that means your ferrets are probably dead" Elliot replied with a quick "Oh well!"

Later in this same show Diane thought up that perhaps Elliot could own Sugar Gliders. Now these animals are not like owning anything as common as a dog or a cat, neither DJ's know anything about them, claiming they are easy to tame and take care of! In truth sugar gliders take a lot of patience and time to tame, they are still very much wild animals, and have strict dietary requirements. Another fellow DJ showed up and had brought them a Chia Pet, in which they kept saying repeatedly "I don't know what to do with this, how do you work this thing." Elliot wouldn't even bother to read the directions and care on the box for this simple plant, let alone an animal.
For any young child, or highly impressionable and ignorant person that is possibly listening to this show spells trouble! People would start to believe that just 'throwing away your pets' is acceptable treatment, and that its not necessary to learn about your pet before you adopt one, also that adopting exotic animals on a whim is a 'fun' and 'easy' thing to do.

Please help Elliot to see that this talk of encouraging animal abuse/neglect to the broad public is not acceptable.
