You are a hero for animals and also for our fragile environment. With the nature of the causes you are continually fighting you are bound to get exactly this kind of treatment.
This sort of low action from the media and your own government means one thing--you are doing something right.
If you played their game over the years you'd be sitting in an office right now being a yes man and being a worthless human being which is an abundant commodity in our government agencies all across the country.
However when you do the right thing you get exactly what you're getting right now. You are a strong man and I know you can handle petty actions like this. I have worked for thirty years in the Media industry and I know how a story is contrived--never to present the facts in an unbiased way, because if you do the story is flat and boring.
Forever your admirer,
Dr Ward Stone looking at a blood sample from one of the Riverside Park babies on May 12, 2008. The baby died from a rodenticide placed throughout Riverside Drive by the Department of Health.|
I am sure there may be other people in New York that do more for the preservation of our Natural world, I just don't know of any. I do know Ward though.
Understand my frustration when I see the Media including the company I work for going out of their way to glorify conventional celebrities like musicians and actors, who for the most part are worthless human beings as far as the welfare of the Earth and her precious animals are concerned, while a hard working champion like Dr Ward Stone is struggling to stand up to his own government as they pressure him to stop doing the valuable work which he continues to do for all our benefit.

Dr. Ward Stone Begins Testing

Dr Ward Stone’s pathology lab in Delmar NY is crippled by lack of funds to carry out toxicology tests on his specimens.
It is extremely important for toxicology tests to be done on dead animals to collect data which will help both animals and humans in the future. Dr Ward Stone’s office in Delmar NY has lost most of its funding to carry out these important tests.
Please look into this and help support this great man whose work often goes unnoticed and unrewarded. He needs the proper resources to just do his work efficiently.|
Please write to the NYSDEC Commissioner and tell him to restore the proper funding to Dr Stone’s pathology lab.

My letter to Commissioner Grannis
I have known Dr. Ward Stone for several years now and I have heard about him and the important work which he performs at the NYSDEC Pathology Unit long before I met him. It is my understanding that his lab is hurting for funds to pay for toxicology tests on the animals which are sent to him.
It seems to me that there may be a deliberate attempt to suppress the data which can be revealed by these toxicology results and so the less of these results we have the better off certain people will be to carry on their businesses and habits which cause the death of the animals victims which came to Dr Stone in the first place.
I am told that these toxicology tests cannot, under the present NYSDEC regulations, be funded from outside sources. The Pathology Unit of the DEC identified harmful rodenticides found in dead Red-tailed hawks recovered in in Central Park. The results of those toxicology tests brought about an awareness and an alarm to Central Park making them more careful of, and patrons more vigilant to, the pesticides used by this city park. Without toxicology tests corrective measures will not go into effect to keep this park, this city , this country and this planet safe and habitable for one and all.
I appeal to you to address this single issue with a reasonable amount of urgency. If you have difficulty in allocating the necessary funds for this department please do what you can to allow private donations to be channeled to supplement these tests.
