Wacky Mentality for Nov. 4: Odd statements on breeding and animal welfare
Some people just continue to pull in their thoughts from regions beyond our solar system. This, of course, is assuming intelligent life does not exist beyond the Earth. But then again, intelligent life is limited here too.
The Pack News Wire included an editorial posted on HoosierAGToday.com – under the headline: “The Hidden Agenda Behind The Animal Care Movement.”
This was odd enough. Not the ‘animal rights movement,’ as we typically see. The headline suggests the animal care movement has a hidden agenda. What? – your vet is out to take over the world?
But Gary Truitt actually states – “The real agenda behind the animal activist movement is the total domination and, in some cases, elimination of animal agriculture.”
The fact that this is not happening really doesn’t seem to bother Truitt. But his claims are really based on the fact that those who support compassion and animal welfare want to see abuse exposed, in some cases with undercover video of people actually torturing animals.
So since people with compassion want to prevent acts of animal cruelty and see to it that abuse is uncovered, Truitt falsely claims that means they want total domination. That’s wacky.
AND – A headline on RoyalCentral.co.uk reads – “Animal Welfare Act endangers the Queens corgis.”
And why is this claim made? – Because the act bans the act of tail docking for cosmetic reasons for dogs.
So if breeders don’t get to engage in this completely unnecessary but cruel practice, they just don’t want to breed that dog. So the fear is the Queen won’t be able to buy more corgis because those who set the breed standard won’t like the dogs with full tails – the way nature intended.
From the piece -
The ban on docking has changed the look of the corgi; therefore breeders are not continuing to raise the Pembroke Corgi.
Falling below the number required will place in on a “vulnerable native breeds list.”
Native breeds list – ? They are all related to wolves. The welfare of the dogs should come first, not a native breeds list.
The Queen should decree henceforth to adopt homeless pets. What a great example that would set.
