Subject: DawnWatch: Good Morning America plus Today Show follow-up & poll on dog fur 3/14/07

Thanks to mass interest from viewers, demonstrated as the Today Show posted many appreciative comments on its website, the Today Show continues to cover the issue of real fur — often dog fur — being labelled as faux. Today’s follow-up story, Wednesday March14, again includes reports of animals being beaten over the head and skinned alive. It shows pictures of adorable little puppies (racoon dog or other) being bred in China for their fur. And — great news — it reports that thanks to the scandal, some designers have decided to stop selling fur altogether.

You can watch Today’s follow-up report on line at http://tinyurl.com/2l6tdh.

Because of all the interest, the web site’s “Question of the Day” is still “Would you wear a coat made of doggie fur?”

If you have not yet voted, please go to the site and choose the third option, against all fur. If you tried to vote yesterday and found the servers jammed, thank you, how wonderful, and please keep trying. The story and poll are on line at: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032633/

And please be sure to thank Today for the wonderful coverage. Positive viewer feedback will encourage more follow-ups and more animal friendly coverage in the future. Email Today [at] NBC.com

ABC’s Good Morning America has also covered the issue today, March 14, following up on their first report a few weeks ago. You can watch the story on line here.

Please thank Good Morning America for the coverage — enthusiastic public support will encourage more of it. Good Morning America takes comments at http://tinyurl.com/kajkl

Yours and the animals’,
