NOT WORK FOR THE COMPANY THAT KILLS THE CATTLE,
PROCESSES THE CATTLE, OR PACKAGES THE CATTLE. I WORK FOR A
PRIVATE AGENCY THAT IS CONTRACTED TO "SECURE" THIS
FACILITY. I HAVE NO CONTROL OVER WHAT GOES ON IN THIS
PLANT. <br>I need to restate what I have said about
hunting. If you feel the need to go and kill you an animal
to eat, then go for it. I have lost two sons, to an
untimely death when they were shot in two separate hunting
accidents while with friends. Perhaps, I am somewhat
prejudiced towards hunting and guns for this very reason.
Yes, if that is a crime, then I am guilty as charged.
Incidentally, I also am an E.M.T. and am tired of seeing kids
your age and younger killed by firearms. You have no
idea what it is like to see this image, especially
when it is your own flesh and blood. I hope and pray
to God, you never do. Forgive me, Chris for my
bitterness, but I have seen enough death for this
lifetime.<br><br>Larry, A former Hunter.
Ok, I m sorry ... I just don t see what it is that this HSUS person said that is so stupid. The only part of your posting that deals with what she said is:Message 6527 of 6527 , Mar 23, 2002View SourceOk, I'm sorry ... I just don't see what it is that this HSUS person

"Sandy Rowland of HSUS said that best in show trophies, plaques or
ribbons can be evidence of dog fighting, and that police should be on
the lookout for dogs with scars, treadmills, springpoles, medications
and medical equipment, and books or magazines dealing with dog
Evidently, in this person's experience, these things have been found in
connection with people and dogs involved in dog fighting. It seems to
me that she is trying to help police bust dog-fighting rings, which, in
my book, is admirable.
Do you have any idea what her background is or how much experience she
has at busting dog-fighting rings? I would be glad to contact her
personally, and find out. I think it would be nice if you found out
exactly what qualifications and experience a person has before you call
them an "idiot."
You mentioned that you do rescue. Do you have also have experience in
busting dog-fighting rings? And, if so, what have you found to be
indications that a person is involved in dog fighting?
The HSUS employs over 100 people, many of whom have advanced educations
and years of experience working with and for the cause of animals. For
you to make sweeping statements regarding their intelligence levels is
