    after watching all these various videos of animal cruelity like the pam lee KFC one, and now this one. it pisses me the fuck off how cruel the human being race could be. i can only imagine how painful these animals feel when people abuse the crap out of them. i try not to watch the whole thing, but it really angers me and i just want to find the man whose beating on these animals and give them the beating of their life.

    there are also times where i see stray dogs all over the city and even on deserted areas off the highway. when im driving and see these animals on the road, it fucks my whole day up just thinking whats going to happen to that dog/animal. theres nothing i can do besides taking the dog into my car, but i have no idea if its "dirty" or vicous. :hsd:

    what ruined my vacation to Vietnam was right when i got off the plane and arrived at my grandma's home, first thing i see is some damn people (seem to be like animal patrol folks, even if they were, not very professional at all) choking the shit out of a stray dog, tossing it in the back of a truck and most likely going to eat it (im sure people in Vietnam eat dog as this is a fairly poor country).

    how do you guys get this through your head?

    People who hurt animals should be drawn, quartered, cut into little bits and fed to the sharks.
    No, not that, that would be too easy.
    Slow, painful, miserable, endless torture....
    People who go out and hunt whales deserve a harpoon where the sun don't shine.
    People who hurt animals are sick. Just sick. I belong to the ARN (Animal Rescue Network) and the things I have seen done to animals by humans, make me ashamed to be a member of the human race.
    People can help other people, but animals really can't help themselves.
    I understand sort of the need for medical research on animals, but when I read about things such as the Draize test REVLON uses on the bunnies to test their new mascara, I cringe.
    Or people who get puppies/kittens for Xmas gifts and the New Year comes and out goes the pet with the the Christmas wrapping and used Christmas tree.
    Or students who get a pet a the beginning of the school year and guess what? School's out and so is their pet.
    Or people who do not spay or neuter their pet and just increase the problem of unwanted kitty and puppy overpopulation, it only costs a lousy $50...
    Sometimes, oftentimes, I wonder just where exactly some people's heads are when it comes to animals and their pets..
    How can humans be so cruel?

    sry but that had me :rofl: :noes:

    Yeah there's no point pokeing the bloody things with sticks etc. if it needs to be disposed of just shoot it, it does annoy me when people seem

    to get some sort of sadistic pleasure from being cruel to animals makes me wounder what sort of fucked up person they are.

    Now thats something I highly don't recommed doing could be diseased and vicous and or dirty and who knows what.



    I have been chased by a rather big dog in a swamp and it wasn't fun (I don't think I have ever moved so fast I didn't know wtf I was going to do when I saw it come for me :noes: another time I was jogging and had s German Shepard come after me that also gave me a rather nasty fright) So in summary I still like dogs if its mine or a friends and its friendly towards me. But I can tell you there's no way I would ever try to pick up a stray dog etc. had enough fun with loose dogs.. let alone trying to get it into the car with you :ugh::noes::noes:

    Yeah,animal cruelty really gets to me too. There's not a whole lot that we can do about it though besides educate people, donate money to shelters, and foster animals if we have the ability to.

    I question why this is in the asylum and not say, On Topic.

    but, that aside. Animal cruelty does happen, but it has a FAR smaller rate of occurence here than in other parts of the world or in our past.

    But, let me put it to you this way. If you are starving, and you see a stray dog on the side of the road, but you have no weapons on you, would you not choke it to death? I know I would.

    That said, the animal kingdom is FAR more cruel to itself than humans are. Have you seen how predators treat their prey? Have you seen how the Alphas treat the Betas?

    I've got news for you, life is filled with cruelty, life is most definitely not fair. Your objective in life is to survive, not to try not to hurt anything while you are here, because I guarantee your very presence here on earth is harming others

    Time to become an animal activist, life is precious and we have to prevent people treating it like garbage.

    I've yet to meet anybody who has the grounds to complain about animal cruelty. Every time you eat a burger, drink your soft drink, heck...even the cracker you eat is likely to either contain animal byproducts or have been tested on animals so that you and I can go skip merrily around pretending it's alright.

    I think it's all cruel too... but I can't complain about others when I still enjoy my steaks and fried chicken.

    My old boss was a vegan....ok, maybe SHE had the right to bitch. :hsd: But she was practically eating sawdust. I'd be bitching at everyone.

    :rofl:

    I hunt. I kill deer, elk and moose, then gut them while their bodies are still warm. I dare anyone to tell me I'm being cruel to the animals

    Only animals I care about killing are the smart ones. I don't think you realize how stupid cows are.

    :nono: what are pets here are delicacies elsewhere in the world

    and besides, how hypocritical is that? to say that some animals deserve protection while others dont, simply because we find some more cute and cuddly

    I'm not talking about elsewhere in the world though.
    Man, tonight I want to take that little :nono: that you seem to be using in response to every one of my posts and shove it up your ass! :mamoru: (I'm sorry, just had to say that!)
    Some animals are raised for food. Some are raised for companionship.

    and for the record, i think people who torture animals for the fun of it should be shot

    that said, killing an animal is rarely painless. Oftentimes, what seems to be the penultimate of cruelty to an animal is really the most pain free method of killing them

    while i am aware of some people who believe andrenaline makes the meat taste better, in my experience, an animal who is killed quickly and cleanly is far more tender and tastes much better than an animal who was frightened, chased, wounded, etc (andrenaline)

    yes, and if someone killed your dog to eat, you'd be understandably upset. At the same time, we have hundreds of thousands of homeless, starving people in our own countries. If they see a stray dog or a stray cat and decide to try to catch it, kill it, and eat it, who are you to tell them its wrong?

    And regarding the :nono: I've recently added it to my smiley repetoire, along with :mamoru:... .they'll both grow used and i'll use them less frequently (read: in the proper amount)

    until then, apologies for my overusage

    :nono: (just had to, don't know why):mamoru:

    I am not to tell themthey are wrong for attempting to feed themselves. Although I CAN think of better/more safe and appetizing ways to feed themselves besides eating stray dog that has Goddess knows what diseases.

    Food banks? There are plenty of organizations in our area that offer 3 meals a day to those who cannot afford them (and we DON'T have a large homeless pop. either). There are organizations that will provide you will bags full of food if you truly need them.
    I believe they're called Soup Kitchens in other areas? Only ours don't just serve soup :o

    food bank will supply you with enough food for a few days, 6 times a year

    soup kitchens have lineups and you arent guaranteed there will be any left when you get in

    my uncle runs one of the most reputable homeless centers/street outreach/halfway houses in calgary, half my cousins work there, and i volunteer there when i can. They have thousands of regulars, but theres tens of thousands more on the streets

    Ask any person who works in any of those programs, they will tell you, theres not enough for everyone

    Time to become vegetarian. Meat is a very uneconomical way to feed the people.

    People generally treat animals like shit, vegetarianisme is an elevated state of consiousness, Wether it be cows or dogs, generally eating meat should be avoided, its supporting a disgusting industry over the backs of animals that cannot defend themselves or stand ground for their own rights.

    Severe penalties should be given for animal cruelty exactly for that reason. I've so had it with the assholes that dump their pets every summer they go on vacation, if you DONT want to take care or your pet , DONT get one.

    In my opinion the government should provide free animal shelter during the hollidays when asshole people easy dump their pets when they become a burden if no shelter is found to go on a vacation or costs prevent them from storing their pet at a animal asylum. Even tho it would cost tax money for an extended amount of time, its worth saving the thousands of animals from the cruelty of their owners , i myself am personally opposed to dear hunting too. Grab a gun and fight an opponent in Iraq that can shoot back, instead of focussing on a innocent animal. Deers are beautifull animals =( why do people destroy everything that is beautifull in nature and nature itself :wtc:

    First of all, I'll address the meat issue.

    Meat has one of the highest amounts of energy/lb. It is necessary to eat meat in order to survive. The 'alternatives' to meat are substitutes, not replacements, you have to work much harder to maintain proper nutrition if you cut meat out of your diet.

    I agree with pets. Pets should be treated as members of the family. I sure as hell wouldn't leave a member of the family home locked up if I could avoid it (laws sometimes force me to)

    With regards to hunting, I hold a dim view of those who hunt solely for the trophy or the 'sport' I fully support hunting for meat.

    It is an uninformed and ignorant view that a) the animals are defensless and b) its harmful to kill them.

    Humanity has eradicated virtually every natural predator in north america. Some still survive, but nowhere near such a degree as they existed before we came along. As a result, the herds breed beyond the ability of the ecosystem to support. Hunting helps keep the population in check.

    If you wish to see an example of what happens to an underhunted herd, check and see what happened to the moose in Alberta/BC about 4 - 5 years ago. 3/4 of the entire population died due to disease. The deaths they suffered were far more painful than those they'd suffer at the hand of any hunter.

    Last but not least, most hunters are conservationists. We are among the first to protect the environment and fight to protect fragile ecosystems against further encroachment.
