Please cross post to all regions. Please read the last 2 paragraphs, it pretty much sums up the raids that will be forthcoming. Please note there is NO WARRANT issued either for such action.

Also it is very important in paragraph 3 that HSUS is obviously providing the ‘dedicated employee’ as they are also the ones who are training the NSA.
Also please note in the last paragraph, the animal is removed and you have no say in the matter, you are guilty until proven innocent. We have tried to warn everybody this was coming, now it has arrived.
