Cruelty on the Basketball Court - Donkey Ball
# 738
12:10, Mar 31, Ms. Debbie Johnson, CA
This is basically advocating abuse toward a living, breathing, thinking, feeling, sentient creature. Completely irresponsible.
All signed and noted. Thanks.
All signed and noted. Thanks.

so true Debbie! That is outright abuse. Another form of cruelty (in my opinion), is to abuse an animals' habitat and treat them like "financal resourses" so badly, they become endangered.

 

To me, there isn't a higher form of cruelty and neglect than the one that leads to a species EXTINCTION.

Thanks everyone - nice to see you here Deb.

Colorado Barbara - have a bucket garden right now - covering the lettuce due to the freezing nights and uncovering during the day - had 50 mph winds one day - cold the next and snow the next - up to 70 today - 32 when I took the dog out.

 

Here's something from Mm I enjoyed - said I was a Jack Russell Terrier or a Boston Terrier - yes I have high anxiety but don't bark at the UPS man - am basically quiet. 

 

Thought some of you might like to have a quiz instead of looking at sad animal news or political news, thus a quiz about what kinda Dog would you be....I want replies on what kind YOU ARE I am a Newfoundland or a St. Bernard...Goodness I am quite the heffer huh...Hope you enjoy.   I was looking for the Super Hero Quiz, and found this one buried...If you don't like taking quiz no worries...Thought you might enjoy a TIME OUT! Blesings and If you find out please let me know...Mm



What Kind of Dog Would I Be? Question 1

2 years ago

THis was my answer... maybe should've put in separate thread - but thought would change the flow a bit.

 

Your assessment: Holy Terror (I mean, Terrier)- Bark! Bark! No matter who you live with, you are the leader of the household. You enjoy chasing down critters, rough housing with your mates and barking at the UPS man. You love your family, but you tend to look out for number one! Think Jack Russell Terrier or Boston Terrier.

2 years ago

All noted and signed, dear Val. I love Jack Russell Terrier or Boston Terrier.  

"Your assessment: Gentle Giant- You are a lover; not a fighter, even though you are huge. You love cuddling up on the couch with your best friend or lying in the middle of the kitchen or lying on the deck...you get the picture. As long as you get your dinner, a treat or two and the love of your family, you are a happy. Think Mastiff, St. Bernard or Newfoundland."

Yeah baby, that's me

State Officials, Humane Groups Oppose Proposed Horse Slaughter Plant in New Mexico
(April 13, 2012)--The Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), Front Range Equine Rescue and Animal Protection of New Mexico condemn plans to open a horse slaughter plant in Roswell, NM

 



Comment:

 

Thank heavens someone is standing up for these poor horses. Too many people (especially conservatives) cannot resist anything that will make someone a buck, no matter how awful or what animal suffering is involved. Finally, some groups stood up and said "no." Wish all people with compassion would remember the horse slaughter backers next election and get them out of office so they can do no more damage.

It WAS banned, Debbie- Obama signed for it again.

 

Obama, Congress restore horse-slaughter industry

 

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/nov/30/obama-congress-restore-us-horse-slaughter-industry/?page=all

 

As of yet, no slaughter houses in the US have opened... but New Mexico is ready to.

 

What a load of crap- they say it was to protect horses from abuse when they were shipped to Canada and Mexico where there are no animal welfare laws. More pretzel logic- the best way to protect horses is to slaughter them here in the United States???

I live in Colorado and you woudn't believe what Ken Salazar actually does in this state - I actually lived off grid by a ranch of his for a year and he is awful!  No help at all so am not surprised laws change,  NM is no better.  It is sad. I couldn't believe it was still happening but am not surprised -

“People will not be happy about their community potentially bringing in one of these plants,” he said. “Americans don’t eat horses, and don’t want them butchered and shrink-wrapped and sent to France or Japan as a delicacy.”

 

Is an all-out ban really so unfeasible....? Granted, unscrupulous people intent on butchering and selling the meat of horses, sending them to unregulated foreign slaughterhouses was an inevitable mess (to say the very least)  but for Obama to claim that allowing these places to open in the U.S under the assumption that they would be "carefully regulated" is a load of bullsquash. It's all about profit....and once again, innocent animals will suffer for it.
