About Us

The Bureau of Humane Law Enforcement has several investigations under way, and most cannot be discussed while the cases are pending and/or the perpetrators are brought to justice. A few of the cases we can disclose include:

The BHLE discovered hoarders in an RV at Venice Beach with approximately 50 unspayed and unneutered cats in the vehicle. This is a violation of county and city ordinances, and the state anti-cruelty and confinement standards statutes. Working with West Los Angeles Animal Control, the BHLE has insured that the animals are being removed and given veterinary care, and all of the cats are being spayed and neutered. BHLE worked with numerous animal rescue and adoption groups such as Feral Cat Alliance, Voice for the Animals, Animal Avengers, Rescue House, People and Cats Together and Cat Adoption Service to find loving homes for the cats. With loving foster care, the cats are doing well and are starting to trust people again. SAFE PERMANENT HOMES ARE URGENLY NEEDED FOR 10 OF THE REMAINING CATS. If you are interested in adopting one or more of these rescued animals, please contact BHLE at: 1-888-BHLE.APB or online at 

In response to a plea for help from an LAPD officer, the BHLE assisted in the capture of 2 puppies trapped in a small crawl space underneath an abandoned building in South Central LA. After 8 hours of exhaustive attempts, the puppies were finally caught. Although elusive and distrusting of humans during the capture, they quickly warmed up to BHLE officers and wanted to play within a few short hours. They were turned over to the LAPD officer who requested the assistance, and that officer turned them over to Animal Avengers to find them a loving home.

BHLE accompanied veteran news reporter and camera man Bob Tur (the man who captured the first images of the L.A. riots and pioneered helicopter news reporting) to a Chino Dairy. The investigation was in response to several articles that ran in the L.A. Times and other California news media. BHLE found cows who were completely emaciated and some were trapped in mud as deep as their chests. Other waded slowly through the thick muddy mess and fought to try and stay above it. On a body condition scale veterinarians use to measure how thin dairy cows are, these cows rated a "1" on a 1-9 scale where "9" is healthy. The cows' ribs, spine and hip joints jutted out significantly. Several dead cows, caked in mud, lay by the side of the road. A third one lay nearby slowly dying and receiving no veterinary assistance.  

BHLE has extensive documentation of animal cruelty and the case is pending.
