    Groan,

    Once again my good mood is ruined. Well, my own fault really, I happened to stumble across some animal rights page and did the final mistake in looking at their bulletin board.

    There has been a lot of conversation against fur yards, so what do these morons do? They go to yards by night and release thousands of foxes into nature - and this happens once or twice per month here. Not that I would like using furs as clothing very much, but that kind of activism is just so stupid. Those thousand foxes are enough to destroy half the ecosystem in areas of tens of miles across, before dying in starvation because they can't hunt that well.

    Well, you americans have PETA and whatnot similar stupidity-organizations. I think I go get myself some aspirin now that I have vented most of this out. Thanks for listening.

    I agree, there have many been similar "actions" by animal activists and vegans here - the most stupid was "animal lovers" who released hundreds of egg producing chickens into the wild, where they in their newly won freedom suffered massively until they starved or froze to death. Clever thinking.

    :):) If it is known that an animal is going to die due to being hit by a car or a terminal illness, PETA would rather let it suffer than have it be put down. :):)

    Not all. Don't buy what the media sells you.

    I agree, some of them have a very valid point in trying to stop cruelty to animals. But they must cringe when idiots do these "actions" and "free" animals in their name.

    Just a heads up some of these close minded comments are offensive to others.

    Activists of all kinds have done good and great things, while others have done some dumb and stupid things.

    We can be a critic and cast a light on any group to make them look bad.

    So watch the generalizations. Dont inflame, you just hurt the site and the forum.

    Thats ok!! Most close minded people tend to misspell, be inbred and live some where in the middle of nowhere, say the Ozarks. Have bad oral hygiene, and have a fetish for their own cousins.

    But again this is just a generalization. ;) :oops:

    Dont worry it's all good. :)
     
  19. All the misspellings come from having 7 fingers, and because their keyboards are made out of twigs and fur ;)
