Dear Animal Rights Activists of New Jersey,
My name is Jesse Einhorn, and I work with the Princeton law firm Hill
Wallack. We have recently been retained to prevent the construction of an
animal testing facility in the Township of East Amwell, Hunterdon County.
Having recently purchased a large plot of existing farmland, Fort Dodge
Animal Health, a division of Wyeth Laboratories, is seeking to raise cows,
sheep and horses which will be kept in a closed holding facility while being
with worms and other parasites. All of these animals will then become the
subjects of cruel and rigorous drug testing, and many will be slaughtered
and dissected on site. We want to stop Wyeth's
development, and we need your help.
Our legal opposition to this matter departs from the fact that the property
on which they plan to build is zoned solely for "farm use". To secure
municipal approval, Wyeth is arguing that because they are raising the
animals (albeit for testing), their activities are essentially agricultural.
But it is clear that what they are really doing isn't "farming" at all.
Indeed, the true and ugly nature of their intended proceedings is evidenced
by Wyeth's own construction proposal, which includes "a slaughtering
facility, a necropsy facility, a dissection room...(and) an underground
storage tank" where they plan to
keep blood and tissue samples.
On Wednesday, October 1st, the planning board of East Amwell will meet to
decide whether or not to approve Wyeth's proposal.
It is crucial that they hear the public outcry, and we desperately need your
We must make clear that, as conscientious citizens, we know the line where
(quasi)-legitimate agriculture ends and outright
exploitation begins; that Wyeth's is not the kind of "farm" we want in New
Jersey. I have contacted numerous animal rights groups across the state. I
am hoping to stage a silent protest during the meeting, and also organize a
group of representatives from various groups to state our objections
directly before the planning board.
I will be contacting you again by phone at the beginning of next week and at
that point, we can work out
the details of our plan (assuming your group would like to participate).
The planning board meeting will be held at 7:30pm, Wednesday, October 1st,
East Amwell Township Municipal Building

Phone Number: (908) 782 1967
Again, it is of crucial importance that we voice our opposition at this
forum, and that we voice it LOUDLY. It is a tremendous opportunity for our
community to take a decisive stand against animal cruelty.
Please e-mail me with any questions, or call me at 609) 924 6324.
Otherwise, I will talk to you at the beginning of next week.
Thank you for your time in considering this matter.

Don't just question animal abuse. Interrogate it, impugn it, tear it down, dismember it, bury it, and when the mood strikes you, dance on its grave!
