      RE: The Use of Cats and Dogs as Bait in France
       
      (L'Ille de la Reunion)
       
      PETA continues to monitor the situation in which dogs and cats were reportedly being used as fishing bait on the island of Réunion, and there is some good news. According to the World Society for the Protection of Animals, the French minister for overseas territories visited Réunion at the end of September to meet with the governor of the island to ensure that measures to prevent such barbaric practices are being put in place by Réunion authorities; the governor assured animal welfare groups that he condemns this cruel practice and announced that any dog or cat found aboard a fishing vessel in Réunion waters registered with the municipal authorities will be confiscated.
       
      Police have also been ordered to monitor and control these incidents, and the judiciary has been told to punish any offenses with the severest penalties. The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society reports that the first violator has already been charged as a result of efforts by police to investigate the practice.
       
      We encourage you to contact the minister and the governor to thank them for their actions. Encourage them to continue to extend enforcement of these measures:
       
      L'Honorable M. François Baroin
      Le Ministre de l'Outre-Mer
      27, rue Oudinot
      75007 Paris
      France
       
      L'Honorable M. Laurent Cayrel
      Le Gouverneur de la Réunion
      1, av. Victoire
      97400 Saint-Denis
      La Préfecture de la Réunion
