The Los Angeles City Animal Regulation Commission has suspended its relationship with Mercy Crusade of Van Nuys, which is the subject of state and federal investigations brought on by reports that the animal welfare group bought up to $100,000 in assault-style weapons. In Sacramento, meanwhile, state legislators--with encouragement from the city of Los Angeles--are moving to change state laws that authorize animal welfare groups such as Mercy Crusade to name state humane officers.

Members of the Animal Regulation Commission usually join the panel because they're passionate about animals. But that passion sometimes makes them act like, well, animals. A case in point occurred Monday when Commissioner Gini Barrett, upset at comments made by fellow Commissioner Russ Cook, shouted an obscenity across the room and then launched an empty water bottle at him.

Just when you begin to despair about the violence, crime, hate, impatience and selfishness of today's society, someone restores your faith. There are still people who care about and help their neighbors. Some of the best of them are horse people. There is nothing more fragile than a horse, and nothing more heartbreaking than an injured one. On Feb. 1, our appaloosa mare, Azteca, had a horrible fall in the rain. They appeared like magic, our horsy neighbors--those who know us, those who barely do and those who just responded to the call, "horse in trouble."

Capping four years of negotiations, the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy has signed an agreement to purchase 246 mountainous acres above Sylmar as parkland, officials announced Saturday. The conservancy has agreed to pay $3.9 million to a developer and several private owners for Wilson Canyon, a rugged area of finger-like canyons and year-round streams north of Olive View Medical Center. The land is considered a critical part of the proposed Rim of the Valley trail system.

Terminal Island fish broker Dino Lauro finally made a deal to get rid of the 13-foot great white shark that has been nothing but trouble since a fishing boat snagged it in the San Pedro Channel a week ago today. Lauro says he has sold it for $600 to a "collector" who wants the jaws. Capture of the shark got a lot of publicity because it or its cousin had been loitering off Newport Beach only a day or so before, prompting authorities to keep people out of the water.

For 11 1/2 years, Susan Middleton gave lethal injections to thousands of animals that no one wanted. Her pay and training were poor, and she often felt gravely depressed. Forced to work as quickly as possible, she once euthanized 900 animals in a 30-day period. "The worst ones were the 3-week-old kittens with big blue eyes," she said. "They look up at you, and all you have is a great big needle. I had to keep telling myself: 'This is not my fault. It's not my fault. It's not .'
