Suit seeks to block stuffed mules from exhibit
LUBBOCK, TX -- A San Antonio man is suing the president of a Lubbock museum which bought two old mules and euthanized them for a farm display.
Patrick Green's lawsuit against the president of the board of directors of the American Museum of Agriculture seeks to block the stuffed mules from an historical reaping machine exhibit.
The suit filed Tuesday in state court the wild mules were property of the state and asks their bodies be given to an animal sanctuary for cremation and disposal.
Museum attorneys tell the Lubbock Avalanche Journal (http://bit.ly/QJqUbH) they haven't seen the lawsuit. They've said earlier the animals were at least 28 years old, not strong enough for work and would have been sent to Mexico for slaughter if they hadn't been euthanized for the exhibit.
