Join the crusade Against HSUS+Pass It Forward!—->
Orig. published 2009….
The animal rights faction pushed or “helped” by HSUS is now saying back East (.. think it’s ILLinois)–that ear cropping on a dog is prima facie evidence of animal abuse, a FELONY? In other words you can’t defend against the charge because evidence of having cropped ears equals guilt?
And then we have the accusation that horses taking tourists around Central Park amounts to “animal abuse”? AND now “selling or giving away” is ABUSE– but NOT if a non profit does it??? WTH??!! Folks– we are not idiots. We have read the law for decades.
Why does there appear to be a definite and heightened pattern to these things? Why would a horse pulling a wagon be abuse? Why would cropped ears on a dog be abuse?
We don’t stop people from getting tatoos, having their bikini waxes, or electrolysis hair removal, plastic surgery, reconstructive surgery, any type of cosmetic surgery, dental veneers, liposuction, or many other procedures like hair implants, and other procedures that are not only somewhat risky, but are not related to health?
Yet animal rights extremists “believe” that tail docking is abuse? Ear cropping is abuse? But it’s NOT abuse when they wack off the testicles?
And it’s not abuse to do invasive surgery to remove a uterus? Plenty of studies show that altering pets leads to a shorter life span, more aggression for females, and little or no change necessarily in aggression for males. Those are all material effects upon the pet.
It’s gotten to the point that animal rights extremists are not even in the ballpark anymore. There are many procedures that can be done to animals but not every single one is a CRIME, and not every one should be DECIDED by the NON-OWNER.
ARs say it’s not abuse it’s not. IF they say it is–and now they are saying that selling animals is abuse–then the time is here–and we must stop this nonsense before it’s too late.
Animal rights extremists (like HSUS) want to DICTATE TO EVERY PET OWNER: [For examples, see Lousiville KY post here on Petdefense]
Examples of EVERYTHING THE ARs ARE CONTROLLING:
How to feed, when to feed, what to feed, how to exercise, when to exercise, what temperature is allowed, what type shelter is allowed, what crates are not allowed, what tethering is and isn’t allowed, what size leash is allowed, what type of restraint (if any) is or isn’t allowed, what type of fencing is allowed, what type of confinement if kept outdoors is allowed, what type of flooring is allowed, what type of bedding is allowed, what type of vet can be used, what type of documents must be filed when one goes on vacation, what vaccinations are required when removing a pet from a kennel, what documents/permissions are needed to go on vacation without your dog (which is not altered), what pet sitter is or is not allowed, what dog trainer is or isn’t allowed, what shock or non shock collar is or isn’t allowed, what choke chain can be used, what treadmill can’t be used as exercise, what outside surfaces can’t be used for exercise yard, what size rocks can and cannot be used for kennels, what size doors/gates are ok and not prohibited, how high the fencing must be for a kennel, THE LIST IS ENDLESS. And who are the idiots that keep making these ridiculous lists? It’s called: HSUS, where no regulation, no rule, no law is too much for them.
SERIOUSLY FOLKS………. the time has come to say enough is enough.
Animal rights extremists have proven that they are not only completely off base and completely irrational, their methods are so fraught with insanity and overreaching that they amount to pure dictatorship, far exceeding any rational relationship that any government might even think of…..AND HSUS IS NOT THE GOVERNMENT!! http://humanewatch.org <—-Click if you haven’t read the 7 Things you Didn’t know About HSUS.
