Those angels over at Bad Rap (and angels they truly are, as so many Pit Bulls can testify) have reported back on their experiences during the recent Oklahoma rescue case (for those of you who’ve been media deprived the past little while, a news clip on the story is available here).
Something jumped out at me when I was reading their report on the events in Oklahoma. In among all those tales of bravery and courage and hard work, this is what caught my eye.
The sheriffs of Kay County were in a bit of shock still after watching dogs drop dead at their feet. Once the perp was in jail, they had the messy problem of deciding what to do with the survivors. Peta encouraged them to kill every last one – natch – while much of the public was crying ‘Murder!’ for headlines that suggested they were going to do just that.
Note this, as well:
This is where we call for disaster relief assistance. Could someone please (please?) bring in quick reinforcements so the dogs could get out of the cold, if only for a short time so they can be evaluated? Messages went out to all the large orgs. The HSUS said “No,” citing a poor economy as their reason for staying home.
Pay attention to those two sections. The two BEST FUNDED, most affluent animal rights groups in the entire world – HSUS and Peta – both refused to help in this case – a case where hundreds of dogs were dying of starvation, exposed to the cold, and in dire need of help.
Remember HSUS, the group that so relentlessly and tirelessly fund raised on the backs of the Vick Pit Bulls?
HSUS decided to stay home, ‘because of the economy’. They said no – no to using some of those millions of dollars they raised, to help the very same kind of dogs that they raised all that money for.
They said “Sorry, our hedge funds took a nose dive. Guess those dogs will just have to starve/freeze/get euthanized by Peta. Screw you, and your sorry ass, no name Pit Bulls. But, hey – give us a call if you get another case involving abused celebrity Pit Bulls”.
Of course, I’m just paraphrasing here. I’m sure HSUS had a really, really excellent reason for telling all of those dogs and the people trying desperately to help them to get f*cked.
Peta’s only contribution to the entire situation was their usual cry of “Kill ’em all!”. For a group that espouses ‘rights for all animals’, they sure are quick to kill off Pit Bulls. What is it Gina always says? Oh, right.
Why is anyone still listening to Peta?
Year end is upon us, and some of you are thinking about getting in those last minute donations. Can I suggest that you send your money to someone, anyone, other than those wankers at HSUS and Peta?
Send it to Banned Aid. Send it to Bad Rap. Send it to French Bulldog Village. Send it someone, anyone, who will use it to actually help animals, instead of using it produce more pointless, grand standing media circuses that don’t benefit anyone else but themselves.
The rest of the story from Bad Rap is here, and below is their heart breaking slide show of images from the site in Oklahoma. Don’t read the story without tissues, and the photos? The photos will break your heart. If I haven’t mentioned it before, you suck HSUS. You suck so much.
