We Must Stop Protecting Snowflakes

I was reading this morning of how a Maine legislator had proposed a seat belt law for dogs in passenger cars. The snowflake who proposed the law said he did it at the request of a constituent and removed the proposal at the request of the constituent…WINK-WINK!

Evidently there were two basic reasons for thinking of something so stupid. One was, of course, for the protection of the animal. Big deal. The second was to prohibit dogs from sitting on the laps of drivers as they cruise down the highway at 95 miles an hour, or attempt to manipulate around city traffic when the drivers are so inept at driving they can’t do it safely without a dog sitting on their lap. Perhaps the dog is a better driver. I know they are smarter.

But consider the truth in the matter. Dogs are but an animal…never intended to be as a person, living with a person and doing all person things – let me repeat that – doing all person things. Certainly dogs are not an endangered species. As a matter of fact, 99% of them should be killed and clean up the stinking, rotten messes they leave behind, along with their diseases. So, certainly we don’t need to protect the dogs.

On the other hand, there are the creatures that would choose to have a dog in their car and sitting on their lap. Aside from the risk involved with innocent people being caught up in the dog perversion of an owner not capable of separation anxiety by leaving the nasty thing home, let the dog and owner crash and burn. The man species is in danger of breeding itself into oblivion.

Cruel? Yes, but perhaps – but I doubt it – people might begin to understand how sick and perverted they are when it comes to their pets. Naw! What am I thinking. All they will think is how terrible I am to suggest such a thing and that I die from a million dog bites.

I walk alone.

Animal “Rights” is About Abolition, Not Animal Cruelty, Says Responsible Pet Owners Alliance of Texas

Responsible Pet Owners Alliance Press Release Words can hurt you if you ignore these extremists!  They’ve been telling us their agenda to end all interaction with animals for years, but few believed them. Animal “rights” groups profess to work for improved animal treatment while their ultimate goal is to abolish the following: 1) breeding and ownership of pets; 2) use of animals in biomedical research; 3) raising farm animals for food, clothing, by-products such as insulin; 4) use of animals in education and entertainment, including zoos, aquariums, circuses and rodeos; and 5) all forms of hunting (including field trial competition, trapping and fishing), according to Capital Research Center.  http://capitalresearch.org Gary Francione and Tom Regan, “A Movement’s Means Create Its Ends,” were quoted in Animals’ Agenda: “There are fundamental and profound differences between the philosophy of animal welfare and that of animal rights …  Thus welfare […]

Pope Francis Wants to Be Remembered as a ‘Good Guy’

Oh, OKAY! What a nice guy. Says people’s “values are twisted” citing data that indicates people spend for too much money on pets. He said that people prefer programming their dog or cat to love them but don’t want human reciprocating love. No kidding? WHAT A NICE GUY!

In a one-on-one interview this week with Argentinian journalist Juan Berretta, Pope Francis talked about his life prior to his election as pope, as well as what it has been like to fill the shoes of the “prince of the apostles.”

PETA Kills 88% of Dogs and Cats

Here we go again. A report filed by Infowars, states that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) killed 88% of the dogs and cats they had taken in to “care for.”

PETA is a puke because they are lying hypocrites. As the article points out PETA hauls in millions of dollars, over $51 million last year, by promoting no animal killing and for “ethical” treatment of animals. (Ethics is what you do when nobody is looking, right? Ooops! Somebody peeked.)

So, here is where I am going to have everybody hating me. PETA supposedly took in 2,626 pets last year and killed 88% of them. Good for them. This country is overrun with dogs and cats. Oh yes, some people take very good care of their pets, yada, yada, yada but far too many people don’t. If people really loved their pets, they would do more to make sure that we aren’t overrun with nasty, rotten, disease-ridden pets. But they don’t. As a matter of fact, it is because of organizations like PETA and the Humane Society of the United States, that there are so many pets to begin with.

Let’s get rid of a few hundred thousands and better control and take care of the ones we have.

Holy Cow! Holy Dog! Holy Cat! Holy Shithawk!

Humane Watch is calling out the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) for exploiting a nonexistent statement they claim the Pope made: “Dogs can go to heaven.”

But missing from the article and the criticism of HSUS for attempting to raise lots of money in order that people can go to heaven with their pets, is the big fat question of why the Pope thinks he knows what the Creator will allow or not allow in heaven? Who does the Pope think he is, gOD?

Kitty Cats Missing – Searching for Explanation

In a small mid-Maine town, at least six people’s cats have come up among the missing, according to the Bangor Daily News. The owners of the cats are searching for both cats and an explanation for a seemingly odd and mysterious vanishing. I don’t think it’s all that odd.

Among some of the theories being talked about in this article as to what or who to blame, are foxes and mountain lions, and yet no mention of any member of the canine species other than the fox.

Of course there could be some pervert living in or visiting the neighborhood who has some kind of cat fetish, dead or alive, or maybe even an acquired taste for the little felines. However, it is, more than likely, the result of some larger predator/killer that’s hungry and/or very opportunistic.

There are no fewer than two sure bets when it comes to wild critters: they will always be hungry and they will always have to compete with man, mostly for space but also for food. There’s not a lot that can be done about space, although we try. Yeah, some say that man is swallowing up these critters’ habitat and that encroachment is ruining the dietary plans of some of these animals. While true, to some degree, I wonder if anyone has ever conducted a study that shows how man’s encroachment on the forests, fields and deserts, has increased usable habitat and foraging opportunities for wild animals, including birds? I’ll bet there’s a tradeoff, especially when you consider there are many more species of wild animals in this country than at any other time in recorded history.

All wild animals compete for habitat and food, whether with their own kind or another wild animal. In its most basic form, rational thinking will tell us that if there’s a food shortage, competition increases. On the same token, if the population of certain species increases, so does the competition for food. God forbid both happen at the same time.

Wild animals are, for the most part, opportunistic hunters/foragers. Let’s face it, our own human instinct is to go where we can get something we like to eat in the easiest possible manner available to us. Wild animals are no different.

If, as humans, we provide protection and food for wild animals, either intentionally or not, we will have visitors, some of which we might wish we didn’t have, as may be the explanation for missing cats.

Generally speaking, if wild critters have all the room they need and all the food to eat within that space, we as busy humans seldom, if ever, see them. It’s when circumstances change that six people will lose their cats, all in short period of time.

It sounds from reading the article that most of these kidnapped cat owners let their pets outside and unattended. This has probably been the norm and none have ever had much cause to think otherwise. If the cats became dinner fare for some predator/varmint, chances are something in the region changed that forced the wild critters to go seeking prey elsewhere.

We, as humans, can’t do much about changing natural circumstances that alter the behavior of wild animals, but we can do something about being responsible for managing specie populations to reduce these kinds of conflicts but more importantly to provide for healthy wildlife.

There will always be anomalies when dealing with the natural world, and this one occurrence may be just that. When it becomes a common event, chances are habitat is dwindling but more than likely populations are increasing. This happens mostly due to over-protection of a species. Over-protection is irresponsible behavior and does little good for the animal species and as a result, we see increases in the negative kinds of human/wildlife encounters. We also will usually see animal disease and starvation.

One example of what Maine citizens can do is not get caught up in the emotional rhetoric being provided by the Humane Society of the United States and the Wildlife Alliance of Maine, who want to effectively ban all methods necessary to properly and responsibly manage the black bear population.

As things stand at present, Maine has a very large and growing population of black bears. The ONLY humane methods of keeping those populations in check is through hunting and trapping. If those are removed, negative encounters between bears and humans will increase. Some of those encounters are sure to be tragic and, of course, unnecessary.

I’m not sure that kitty cats are at the top of the list of dietary delights for Ursus Americanus but taken to hunger due to a loss of food and/or population growth and competition, a bear will eat most anything it can get its paws onto……including humans.

Maine citizens should be thanking hunters and trappers for the healthy wildlife we all enjoy. In combination with intelligent wildlife management science, and the implementation of the North American Model of Wildlife Management, an historically proven method of responsible wildlife management, all Maine citizens get to enjoy the results.

Nobody wants to see our own and/or our neighbors pets disappearing. One way to help ensure this doesn’t happen is to make sure that the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife never have their hands tied up to a point where it prevents them from doing the best jobs they can in caring for our wild animals. Don’t let politics and private agendas dictate scientific wildlife management.

Special Court For Pets. What Possibly Could Go Wrong?

Hat tip to reader “James” for the link.

From the Wall Street Journal:

Please read and consider. The city of San Antonio, Texas has created a special court just to deal with pet cases. This is a function of the state’s court system, not a separate judicial entity. The special court has been functioning for 10 months and has collected $250,000 in fines.

Here is one example of a recent court case. A six-year-old boy went to school and told the school nurse that his dad’s chihuahua had bit him. The boys father was brought up on charges and a guilty finding resulted in a fine of $269.

Some probably will find not only the charge and fine ridiculous but the entire concept of the state creating a special court just to deal with pet issues beyond the scope of sensibility. Others will complain that animals are being either singled out for special treatment or singled out for special prosecution, along with the owners.

However, fear not! The city is considering creating special and crime-specific courts in order that judges can become “specialized” in a certain field of judicial expertise.

But the 10-month-old court is part of a larger trend in which cities are forming specialized tribunals to deal with distinct populations, such as drug addicts or the mentally ill. The goal is to allow judges to develop a deeper understanding of certain kinds of offenses, and better fashion appropriate punishments for those who commit them.

I repeat! What possibly could go wrong?
