Thanks Val. Done.

The widespread practice, by local administrations,in dealing with their own incompetence and the pathetic care provided to "pets" by their own citizens, of hiding the problem, just won't go away.

They take the easy path. Kill the victims, hide them away. It is cheaper and less "inconvenient" to the rate payers ( after all re-election is the goal ).

I see it all the time at the totally unfunded cat refuge that I work at.

As for Logan City. They get the "Big Turd Award".

"I have written before that it is a problem created by the citizens of Logan.

Punish those who create the problem, the irresponsible "owners". Enforce strict animal ownership laws and stop punishing the victims.

I am appalled that Logan has this Third World approach of dealing with the issue of abandoned animals.

As for my Alma Mater..I am very,very disappointed."

Irresponsible, callous disregard. That's all I can think of to say here...Just what sort of a "risk" did a herd of harmless cattle create? And just what purpose did it serve...other than to traumatise a bunch of little kids, that is...

Thanks again . All signed.  A couple of comments:

On using primates for advertizing:

 

"If you need a fool to promote your business, then you won't find any better than humans. Cease the exploitation of those who have no voice."

 

On kicking a dog:

"This is no trivial matter. A family dog is a member of the family. How would the employee have been treated if he had kicked a child. The person needs to prosecuted for animal cruelty and dismissed as unfit to interact with households".

 

On "trophy hunting" :

 

"There is something SERIOUSLY wrong with the concept of "trophy" hunting in the year 2011. At a time when wild animals are fast disappearing, why should people, who obviously have a distorted view of their place in nature, be allowed to execute such magnificent creations. ? "

Thanks Val. All done. The last (foxes) failed. Tried 3 times . It came up with "Sorry etc.)

 

Canada is getting a disproportionate representation in petitions. The "politically correct term for "Third World" countries is now "Emerging Nations". I'll have to come up with the opposite term for Canada, in respect to animal welfare, as it is seems incapable of moving into the present.  It would appear that to be a member of the Canadian Government applicants must undergo brain surgery to re-set them to the 18th Century.
