Alaska, the polar bear who recently died at the Maryland Zoo, is a touching example of how animals can recover from years of deprived living conditions in circuses if given the opportunity (Polar bear euthanized at Maryland zoo," Jan. 16). People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals obtained videotape showing the Suarez Brothers Circus transporting Alaska and six other polar bears in small cages and making them perform in hot, humid regions of Mexico and the Caribbean. The overheated polar bears were panting constantly while being hit and whipped in order to force them to perform ridiculous, degrading tricks.

An off-duty state trooper who ran into a burning barn in Bel Air last week to help a farmer save his cattle has been recognized by an animal-rights organization. Cpl. James Joseph Kozlowski III was driving past Broom's Bloom Dairy on Dec. 19 when he noticed the barn was on fire and pulled over to help. Nearly 50 cows were saved, but Kozlowski was struck by falling debris and knocked unconscious. He was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment and has since been released. He has yet to return to duty, a state police spokesman said.

Let's hope that the youths who pelted a tethered dog with rocks and bricks, causing the dog to suffer severe head and eye injuries, are quickly apprehended and charged with cruelty to animals ("Group of children sought in abuse of 1-year-old dog," April 7). Animal abusers are bullies and cowards who take their issues out on "easy victims" — and they rarely limit themselves to hurting only animals. Psychiatrists, criminal profilers and law enforcement officials have repeatedly documented that young people who are cruel to animals often turn that violence against humans.

The people who think you shouldn't eat animals were trying to tell anyone who would listen outside Memorial Stadium last night that a wiener made of soybean is a fabulous thing.Here, in a city with a once-grand history of slaughterhouses and a neighborhood still proud to call itself Pigtown, they arrived two hours before game time to bring down those who are high on the hog, to lay siege to that venerable culinary institution -- the ballpark frank. "Tastes just like a real hot dog!" was the mantra of Jenny Woods, an employee with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, as she stood on the parking lot across from the stadium near a sign that asked,"Guess what's in a hot dog?"

Frank Perdue got a pie in the face yesterday from a woman in a chicken suit at the University of Maryland Board of Regents meeting.University officials were not amused. Nor was Mr. Perdue."Idiots are idiots, and that's all," the 71-year-old Eastern Shore poultry magnate said of the animal-rights activists who staged yesterday's guerrilla theater and wound up in jail."I did it in protest for the millions of chickens Frank Perdue killed," said the pie-wielding chicken, Jennifer Woods of Gaithersburg, in handcuffs after leading police officers on a 10-minute chase around the University of Baltimore campus.

You know how they say it's a jungle out there? Well, its worse than you think. Zoo-chosis is an epidemic.What is zoochosis? As a certified PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) Zoochecker, I feel that I am qualified to inform you. Zoochosis, apparently derived from psychosis, is mental illness in caged animals.My first field experience as a Zoo-checker occurred in August. I was in Washington, and decided to go check out the National Zoo. Naturally, I went to see the giant panda.

PETA and Poe? Oh, woe. The always outrageous People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals made the always financially strapped Edgar Allan Poe House an offer last week that, apparently, the latter can refuse. PETA officials pledged an unspecified amount of money to help keep the Poe House open now that it's lost funding from Baltimore City and is subsisting on the kindness of strangers. The catch, though, is that the house would have to display a PETA poster, one that plays off a famous Poe short story: "The Tell-Tale Heart of a Meat-Eater," goes the ad, which features a drawing of a rather distressed Poe-like man clutching his chest.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is offering to help keep Baltimore's city-owned Edgar Allan Poe House open, provided the group is allowed to display an ad promoting a vegan diet. In a letter sent Monday to Poe House curator Jeff Jerome, PETA officials offered to "help a little bit" in the effort to keep the financially strapped Poe House open. In return for that help, PETA proposes, the house would display a sign featuring a man clutching at his chest; the accompanying message would read, "The Tell-Tale Heart of a Meat-Eater.

This might be hard for you to remember with everything that's going on these days, but there was a time when the Preakness was just a famous horse race that drew thousands of revelers to Pimlico and set one Saturday aside each year for Baltimore to be the center of the sporting universe. It was a day for sun dresses and pretty hats and ice-cold black-eyed Susans ... and the only day of the year when a Roland Park swell in $300 shoes might seek out some ragged-looking soul in a faded fedora and ask, "Whaddaya think?"

The cows are organized, and they're coming for us. This was bound to happen. These gentle, docile creatures have provided us with milk and beef for so long, never asking anything in return. Those days are over. The cow uprising is near. Like any group of aggrieved workers, they now have a Web site, BovineUnite.com, advertised on billboards that have cropped up across Maryland. The site features an alarming video of cows pumping iron and a manifesto worthy of Patrick Henry. "Every day, the humans chase us with horses, rope us and milk us for all we're worth," the site declares.

Of all the reasons to visit New Zealand, killing a red stag wasn't on my list. But that's what got me to the Southern Hemisphere. My brother Kevin has been an outdoorsman for most of his 47 years and wanted to bag a trophy deer with Shane Quinn's Alpine Hunting Adventures on the North Island. All I needed was an excuse to see that part of the world, so I asked him if I could tag along as a nonhunting guest. "But you don't like dead animals," Kevin said over the phone from his home in Colorado.
