Ringling Brothers Abuses Animals

This has been an ongoing issue with circuses that use animals to perform since as long as there have been circuses. I urge anyone who comes across this to visit the link and see how those animals are treated just so a few idiot humans can get their jollies.


My personal take is I agree with many, should one of these trainers ever cross my path I don't believe that I'd take the nobler higher road. Nope, it's ass kicking time.

Ferris, TX Horrendous New Animal Control Policy


New Rules Will Lead to Increase in Unneeded Euthanasia
Animal Control Officer Opposes New Rules; Faces Termination

FERRIS, TX (July 8, 2009)- A major blow to the animal community was felt across Texas today when the city of Ferris created new and unnecessary rules regarding their animal shelter. These new rules, not supported by the city’s one animal control officer, will lead to the euthanasia of many dogs and cats without reason.

The city of Ferris has given their animal control officer 15 days to find new homes for the current dogs and cats living at the shelter. Once the shelter is empty, any new stray animals brought in will be held for six days before being euthanized regardless if space is available. Most D/FW shelters only begin euthanizing animals when the shelter is out of available space. The Ferris City Council would prefer that animals be killed and the shelter remain empty at all times. The city animal control officer was informed if the new rules were not enforced they would be terminated for insubordination.....

Despite claims by temporary City Manager Bill Pardue that the rules are needed because the animal control officer is taking in animals from other cities, there is extensive paperwork detailing where all=2 0animals in the shelter come from-all are from Ferris. In addition, the animal control officer fears she is being retaliated against for a June 5 letter she submitted to the Mayor and Council requesting bathroom facilities at the shelter, something not currently in place. A clear violation of employment standards, the Council balked at the idea of providing bathroom facilities for one of their employees and seemed to believe the animal control officer should continue to drive to the local EZ-Mart to use their restroom facilities.

Rescue groups across Dallas/Fort Worth have united to protest the City of Ferris ’ decision and bring attention to this clear violation against animals whose only infraction is wondering stray into the wrong city. One city council person was heard saying, “why would anyone want to adopt animals?” A clear sign that the city council is only acting on their own ignorance. According to many reports, 2008 was a record-setting year for animal adoptions across the country.

Animals remaining at the Ferris shelter in two weeks will be euthanized for no reason. Something animal rescuers vow to stop.

A Quick Note

As a resolute matter ... the subjects of zoology, botany, horticulture, and chemistry have become penciled in for goals in the new year for this individual.

I take it as strong medicine that we are facing on a global scale, the indications of our own extinction. Deny it or not, this pattern reverberates on the consciousness of daily life en mass. 'Our people', this diaspora of culture, color, continent ... is in trouble. Taken to simplest form, WE,human being male and female, are up shit creek. That is the common knowledge underlying our actions. "Don't need a phd to sling the street philosophy". Some of the animals enjoy a better perch but as geology and history prove, perches collapse. Like ideas, and that's the positive side.

The negative is the negative and it's common sense. The uncommon arises from recognition of the obvious but the initiative to change it. Action is indeed virtue.

I will not go into how this is actually reproduced as a philosophy of survival on the microscope level. Most thoughts are produced after the fact of physical intervention between the host body and the soul inhabiting it. The rest is left up to religion or pondering under a coconut tree.

I do my part, you do yours. That's the science behind the madness.

We've done a pretty good job of breaking that down, actually. We are in fact, pretty f'n smart. Despite the maniacal ramblings, the tomes of absolute, the plan man, the restriction, constriction, and suffocation, of our collective and wonderful knowledge .... we've shown a terrible tenacity to the truth. Look it up.

So, this interest in a focus of sciences is beneficial to my overall life goal. It should behoove me to pursue specialties and concentrate my efforts towards obtainable, perches. Perches allow a vertical perspective. All cats can have perches and all cats are smart. If the perch drops, the scene doesn't change, just the situation. Still, a cat.

Life is a maze, a message is a matrix. Resolution number uno, learn more, reallllly, learn more.

The way outta the trap, is the spring.
