Extreme animal rights activists make me want to go out into the woods and start kicking wildlife.
I discussed the Animal Liberation Front once before, particularly a story about the morons attempting to “liberate” a bunch of deer who refused to leave their happy farm for the dangers of the wild. I am, as many of you know, not really a meat eating sort of person, but that story really made me chuckle.
The most recent escapades of the ALF have only left me shaking my head. This time the geniuses raided a fish farm, “liberating” 15,000 halibut into the wild, where they promptly died. Their carcasses began washing up on the shores after the stock died of starvation, got caught in seaweed, and/or became food for a lot of really happy otters and seagulls. I wonder if ALF is going to launch a terrorist campaign on the otters now, for cruel treatment of the halibut?
While both of the above stories took place in the UK, kooks struck my area just last night. Investigators believe that a fire set last night at Boston Tropical Fish and Reptile was a deliberate arson. I’m inclined to agree judging by the graffiti shown in the article’s photo, which reads “No more exploitation of animals.” Gee, could it be animal rights terrorists? Who knows?
So, way to go once again, jerks. You caused a two-alarm fire that could have killed a fire fighter. Oh wait, you don’t care about humans, you only care about other animals. Okay, then — you caused a two-alarm fire that actually DID kill several animals. The snakes, lizards, and fish inside were burned alive in their tanks because of your self-righteous crusade. The world is obviously a better place to have you in it.
