Santa Monica-based Animal Emancipation Inc. said it plans to picket several performances of Circus Vargas' four-day run.

About 25 members of a Ventura-based animal rights group on Sunday protested General Motors Corp.'s killing of thousands of dogs, pigs and other small creatures in auto-safety tests. At an afternoon gathering outside the Ventura County Government Center, members of Animal Emancipation Inc. said the giant American car manufacturer should find another way of testing its products. "They're the only car manufacturer that uses animals," group member Richard Abbott said. "Everyone else uses dummies."

Seeing that Ventura County is forced to annually euthanize thousands of healthy puppies and dogs due to pet overpopulation, I found it most distressing that you offered local breeders what basically amounts to photo advertising in "A Furry Christmas" on Dec. 21. If residents of our county want to adopt any companion animal, the compassionate choice can only be the local shelters or the Humane Society. Animals at these facilities are literally living on borrowed time--if they cannot be placed, the dilemma of too many animals/too few homes leads to their inevitable and unnecessary death.

A group of 17 animal rights activists protested the appearance of the Carson and Barnes traveling circus in Ojai on Sunday, saying it is cruel to remove wild animals from their natural habitats and train them to perform for human amusement. Members of Animal Emancipation Inc. said they picketed near the circus in Ojai to call public attention to chains, hooks and electric prods often used to train wild animals.

I would like to thank The Times for covering Animal Emancipation Inc.'s May 12 protest of the annual Pierce College Rodeo ("Pierce's Rodeo Opens Amid Protest," May 13) but certain false statements made by Pierce's Ron Wechsler must be corrected. Animal Emancipation has documented evidence of animals at Professional Rodeo Cowboy Assn. rodeos having their backs broken, being repeatedly electroshocked, being jerked at the neck and upended with ropes, being choked and having their tails twisted.

In your Aug. 29 story on the Ventura County Fair, one person interviewed at the rodeo stated: "Everybody should do what they like, I guess . . . the animals will survive." Perhaps this attitude explains why our hot line routinely receives calls describing cats killed with boiling water, kittens fed to starved dogs, rabbits thrown from two-story buildings, pit bull terriers beaten and abused until they learn to attack, roosters with razor-sharp slashers tied to their legs that are forced to tear each other apart, medical researchers abusing their status to torture everything from mice to monkeys.
