The Byrds with Trouble the dog
I will always remember Senator Byrd as one of the few legislators who spoke up on behalf of animals. He was willing to passionately and publicly denounce animal cruelty in all its forms on the Senate floor.
In honor of Senator Byrd, I would like to reprint one of his most memorable speeches on behalf of animals:
SENATOR BYRD ON CRUELTY TO ANIMALS (July 9, 2001)
