Subject: FW: Gassing animals in the USA
Dear Friend Mira,
Thanks to professional and backyard breeders , most shelters in Europe
KILL as well, sound but unwanted animals - especially stray cats. Maybe
the killing isn't done by gassing, but killing anyway and we all know.
Some animal activists even work in these kind of shelters. Yes, there's
different opinions... It's true you can't save the whole world, but you
could refrain from killing.
Breeders are a huge problem, but I fear legally there is little we can
do about this (except "educate" people: no buying + neutering), because
TOO MUCH MONEY INVOLVED. Economical reasons!. Imagine the human howling
and screaming if a government DARED to touch animal breeders + all
their spin-offs! All the Ministers' heads cut off! (Besides, most of
them don't care about animal lifes)
When you come to think of it, ALL the richness in the WHOLE world, it's
build on the suffering and exploitation not only of other humans, but
especially of creatures we call animals. Yes, it's true, "when it comes
to animals, all people are Nazis"! and merciless exploiters.
Regarding the poisoning of stray animals, I want to remind you/let you
know that this happens not only in Turkey, Greece or Romania. It seems
poisoning goes on as well in our regions, but in a more secret way..and
not as massive, because in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany etc.for
instance, we don't have stray dogs, (you have them in France) only
stray cats; it seems these killings are called "pest-control".
Anyway, to a lot of people, life of a cat isn't much worth, especially
when it isn't their own. (I have the impression there's more
organisations specialising in the rescue of dogs than in the rescue of
Dear Mira, I'm putting your message on our animal net, so anyway, it can
be read in 35 countries.

I wanted you to know that the richest country in the world gasses
its unwanted dogs and cats. Yes, this is true. There was a dog who
survived the gas chamber and whose life was spared in the end. I want
all European animals activists to know that this goes on in many
shelters in the USA.

I am going to collect more information about gassing of unwanted
animals in this country and pass it on to you. This is concentration
camp mentality inflicted on animals and we need to show Europe just how
behind American really is when it comes to animal welfare.
