After abandoning a plan to buy animal control services from an entrepreneur whose last venture was shut down by the Internal Revenue Service, the City Council voted this week to reopen negotiations with the nonprofit Pomona Valley Humane Society.

The Humane Society of the United States has asked the Smithsonian Institution to cancel a program on pate de foie gras, noting that production of the French delicacy requires forced feeding of ducks and geese. "These animals are tortured to produce the abnormally large and fatty livers, and no reasonable institution should abet this unmistakable inhumane treatment of animals," David Kuemmerle, the society's manager for farm animals, said Thursday.

The Humane Society, the largest animal protection group in the United States, has sued the federal government in an effort to curtail the use of antibiotics in farm animals.

Adding antibiotics to animal feed is a common practice, even though scientists are not sure why it helps livestock grow.

The crowing of roosters can no longer be heard on a quiet Pasadena street where the noisy birds used to announce their presence on a daily basis. A dozen fighting cocks, along with their sickle-shaped slashing spurs, were seized from a Pasadena home this week during a Humane Society raid. Fifteen hens also were confiscated. Assisted by police, Pasadena Humane Society officers were seeking evidence Thursday as part of a continuing investigation of the family-owned operation on Flower Street.

Five severely malnourished horses that were brought in by the San Diego County Humane Society Tuesday evening are eating their way back to health, according to spokesman Larry Boersma. "Today was the first day that they haven't spent 24 hours out of 24 with their muzzles in the feed bag," said Boersma Friday. "When they came in, they were hardly able to move; today I even saw one break into a little trot."
