I just received an email from a friend with this quote from a PETA branch in our state
“The mentally ill have long abused and neglected pets for their own selfish reasons, using them as an excuse for bad behavior and filthy living conditions. For too long have the poor defenseless animals been subjected to mass breeding and hoarding by these despicable lazy people, most of whom are faking their illness to get special consideration. It is time the Maine State Legislator put a stop to this and mandates that NO mentally ill person shall be permitted to own an animal.”
I need to rant about this, but I am trying to keep my new blog free of political crap.
ONE: these people obviously have no clue about the kind of people who abuse animals.
TWO: PETA has no right to talk about mistreatment of animals when 95% of the animals they ‘save’ are put to sleep, and only 1% are adopted out, the rest just disappear from their records.
THREE: If they want my dogs? they can come get them but the blood that spills will be on their heads.
