On the 125th anniversary of Henry Bergh’s death, I have been reviewing material on the American humane movement for my manuscript. 

In remembrance of Bergh’s good work, I’m posting this Dec. 14, 1993 Weekly World News article on his achievements. It is surprisingly accurate! The lingering question is why, in 1993, the WWW found a story on Bergh to be as equally sensational and ridiculous as a stories of a mime who died for refusing to speak, the uncanny predictions of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and a swami who has not used the toilet in 25 years.
