In follow up to those defending tiger owner Michael Jamison in my last post…

HERE is why people should not keep tigers as pets.  HERE is what doing that supports: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/federal-agents-peered-into-a-duffel-bag-on-the-mexico-border-they-found-a-tiger-cub/ar-AAwCGBl?li=AAggFp5&ocid=mailsignout FYI, it’s a link to an article about a tiger cub found stuffed in a duffel bag.  Someone was trying to smuggle him over the Mexican border, and now he’s living in captivity in a zoo, which is […]

Berkeley, the “domesticated” grizzly bear

Wow, I’ve been able to mine a lot of information off the internet about stupid people and how they are harming animals. First, I was horrified to see two stupid people in South Africa keeping a tiger (named Enzo) as a “pet”, and now I am equally horrified to see that some stupid people much […]

Horrible People Keeping Tiger as Pet

I came across this gem this morning: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2159103/Meet-couple-share-South-African-home-27-stone-Bengal-tiger.html These horrible people, Michael Jamison and Jackie Smit, are keeping a Bengal tiger as a pet. The tiger’s name is Enzo. The headline for the article reads, “He’s just a big pussycat”. No, he’s a fucking tiger, and how is anyone even allowed to have a tiger as […]

Cougar Hunt Debate in Alberta

(Edited to add that I am a vegan and against killing any animals. My purpose in writing this was to ridicule it and the people interviewed because not a damn one of them cares about animals.) Reading this article was an exercise in frustration:  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/cougar-hunt-alberta-1.4476780 Apparently, in Alberta (that’s in Canada), up to 155 cougars can […]

Plant-based foods to become more popular in 2018

Heh. Good news, I guess. According to an article on Huffpost, plant-based eating is a trend that will get stronger this year. Here’s the link: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2018/01/09/food-trends-2018_a_23327293/?utm_campaign=canada_newsletter I wish VEGANISM was getting more popular. According to the Huffpost article, “Veganism and plant-based eating continue to become more popular, for example, even for people who don’t avoid […]

More geese in the news

This time, the headline reads “Memorial Planned for Dartmouth Geese Killed This Week” (http://www.metronews.ca/news/halifax/2017/08/11/memorial-planned-for-dartmouth-geese-killed-this-week.html) Unlike the Canada geese I posted about recently, these geese are not considered pests. In fact, the people in the area seem to cherish them as pets. So since three of these geese were hit by a car and two of […]

Canada geese murdered in Washington Park, corpses fed to homeless and children.

Wow. Here is a horrifying news story: “Canada Geese from Washington Park Made Into Meals for Homeless Shelters” (http://globalnews.ca/news/3647922/canadian-geese-meat-washington-homeless-shelter/?utm_source=Article&utm_medium=MostPopular&utm_campaign=2014) And it’s not just the homeless who get to dine on the corpses of these murdered animals. Their “meat” also went to rehabilitation and after school programs. The article says the geese were “euthanized”—interesting, as I […]
