HONOLULUA man accused of managing a Hawaii puppy mill has been extradited from Las Vegas to face animal cruelty charges.

The Honolulu prosecutor’s office says David Lee Becker arrived in Honolulu on Friday. His bail was set at $200,000 and a hearing has been set for Thursday.

He’s charged with 153 counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty in connection with conditions at a now-defunct Waimanalo puppy mill.

Facility owner Bradley International Inc., pleaded no contest to the charges in December.

The Hawaiian Humane Society seized dogs in what was called Hawaii’s biggest puppy mill operation.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Becker left Hawaii before he was served with the complaint. He was detained in Las Vegas on June 8.

He’s couldn’t be reached for comment Monday.

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR SOUTH KOREAN DOGS AND CATS!
Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

IDA would like to invite you to take action for the dogs and cats in South Korea, and to be a Compassionate Coordinator.

The $2 billion dollar-a-year South Korean dog and cat meat industry slaughters approximately two and half million dogs and thousands of cats in the most horrific fashion for human consumption, because of the prevailing myth that the more an animal is tortured, the tastier and more tender the meat.  Aside from the needless suffering, there is the very serious public health risk associated with eating dog and cat meat. 

We need activists to organize outreach eventsto educate their communities about this industry of horror that is sanctioned by the South Korean government. You can hold a protest or leafleting in a public area to raise awareness, or have a table at a local venue or event to get the word out. IDA will provide you with the materials you will need to make your event a rousing success.

We would like to have a presence at the Korean Embassies and Consulates in the following cities. Please let us know if you would be willing to help coordinate an event:

You do not need to live in any of these cities to participate. If you are interested in helping spread the word about the Dogs and Cats of South Korea, please contact hope@idausa.org or call 707-540-1760. Your day of action could be any day around August 7th. Click here to register your event.

For more information about the South Korean Dog and Cat Campaign, please e-mailrobin@idausa.org or call 415-331-8659.

The dogs and cats of South Korea are counting on you!
