Dunda and Justice

I applaud the San Diego County Edition of The Times for its accurate, detailed coverage of "The Dunda Episode." The Times was steadfast in pointing out the plain, simple, indisputable truth: that Dunda was never properly prepared for the move from the San Diego Zoo to the Wild Animal Park and that she was beaten for days while chained to the ground on her knees.

No matter how hard the Zoological Society of San Diego and other guilty parties try to rationalize the episode--sweep it under the rug, blame The Times for its honest reporting--the obscene judgment shown by management and handlers, the extreme cruelty involved, stands out like a dagger in the public heart.
