Ned Buyukmihci is building a home on 60 acres near here, where he cares for 150 stray or abused animals. "I look at them as non-human kids," the tenured professor at the University of California Davis veterinary medicine school said. "Each one has a story that helps you refocus on why you're doing what you're doing. It also makes you realize that what you are going through is nothing compared to what they have been through."

Comedian/director Woody Allen once commented that while one could inherit wealth, looks, status and perhaps intellect, one could not inherit courage. Courage one earns by one's life actions and is a noble virtue. Dr. Ned Buyukmihci is indeed a courageous man, and he has earned my respect by his actions on behalf of animals, especially in the context of their utilization as a tool of medical research experimentation and his protest of same ("U.C. Davis' Dr. No," Jan. 3). It takes great courage to buck the status quo in one's profession, and he risks his status and financial security, an action few people take.

An animal protection organization is throwing back the curtains on the West Coast's largest distributor of eggs, releasing a hidden-camera video that shows chickens being mistreated by handlers and locked in cages so small the birds can't spread their wings. The footage, shot covertly by an undercover investigator with the group Mercy for Animals, shows workers kicking and stomping on chickens and snapping the necks of sick hens.

Things the Colonel never told us about chickens: Some wear red contact lenses. Ancient Romans thought the birds were psychic. The male possesses such a voracious sexual appetite that its nickname is slang--in several languages--for a human sex organ. Also, and this is the alarming part, they might be taking over the world.
