About a dozen supporters of the Animal Defense League protested Wednesday night outside the home of Jerry Greenwalt, general manager of the L.A. Department of Animal Services. A temporary restraining order bars members of the league from going within 100 yards of Greenwalt, his wife, or his home or office. Several members named in the order remained about a block from the house during the protest, monitored by police. The league alleges that city shelters kill thousands of animals unnecessarily.

The activists who had been protesting Los Angeles Animal Services General Manager Jerry Greenwalt for nine months got their wish Tuesday: Greenwalt is stepping down. Greenwalt, 63, whose Santa Monica home had been vandalized and the word "murderer" spray-painted on his car to protest what activists said were the unacceptable number of dogs and cats put to death in the city's animal shelters, will retire on April 12, Mayor James K. Hahn announced.

Re "Vandals Harass Pet Shelter Official," Oct. 4: How appalling that so-called animal lovers would stoop to such vandalism, especially against an agency that has come a long way since the early '90s, when it pursued very disgusting and harmful policies. It is my understanding that the current head of the department has not only adopted pound animals himself but has raised the adoption rate significantly, with an equally significant drop in euthanasia. Then why are these "humaniacs" so hellbent on attacking a department that is trying hard to reform its ways and turn pounds back into shelters?

Thank you for "Pet Adoption Made Easier by Volunteers at Rescue Web Site" (Oct. 13). The article draws a good picture of the range and quality of animals that can be adopted from public and privately supported animal shelters and of how Web sites can play such an important and increasing part in adoption programs. Having said that, I would like to point out that the Los Angeles Animal Services Department has a state-of-the-art Web site that provides photos and complete descriptions of all the animals at the six animal shelters: www.laanimalservices .com.

Reversing action taken by the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Assn., city parks officials have voted to let the Los Angeles Zoo rejoin the Sumatran Rhino Trust--a coalition of American zoos that is attempting to save the rare Asian rhinoceros from extinction. The association abruptly withdrew the zoo from the 9-year-old campaign late last year after deciding the program was unsuccessful and too costly.

Zoo officials are continuing with their plans to sell Hannibal the elephant to a Mexican zoo. City Park and Recreation commissioners Monday approved spending $10,000 to build a cage to ship the 5-ton Hannibal to Zacango Zoo in Toluca, Mexico. It could take at least a month for a private contractor to construct the metal-and-wood container, said Jerry Greenwalt, interim zoo director. Animal rights advocates have protested the sale, saying the animal might not be treated properly in Mexico.

A five-ton elephant immobilized with tranquilizers for a grooming session at the Los Angeles Zoo was hoisted to his feet Wednesday, a day after he was unable to get back up. "He's eating hay now and acting a little more frisky, wagging his tail and doing all those things elephants do," Zoo Director Jerry Greenwalt said. The 16-year-old elephant, named Hannibal, was tranquilized Tuesday to get his toenails trimmed and for an examination, but failed to respond to the antidote, he said.

Dressed as skeletons and carrying photos of dead dogs, animal activists marched outside the San Pedro home of Mayor James K. Hahn on Saturday in an effort to oust the general manager of Los Angeles' Animal Services Department. The hourlong protest resulted in several arguments between activists and residents, many of whom said they felt their neighborhood was not an appropriate place for a demonstration.

She was a 12-year-old English spaniel named Emily. She was a gift, a bit of furry cheer to boost her mother's spirits after the family's previous pet was put to sleep, said Karen Jiler of West Hills. But Emily met a far less humane fate Friday morning when she was ravaged by the coyotes that roam the Santa Monica Mountains above her owners' Woodland Hills home. "She was nothing but a carcass and a head," Jiler said.
