PETA, Once Again

Wow. I have been gone from here far too long. I leave for a while, and everything’s gone to pot! Haha, that’s a Jack Sparrow quote. Anyway, what with all the stuff I’ve been doing during the summer, I’ve had plenty of time to post, but sitting around doing nothing is too much fun. Anyways, I apologize from having stayed away so long. So now here’s the story. At Wimbledon (it’s a tennis tournament, if you don’t know) pigeons have a bad habit of swooping down and distracting the players and disrupting patrons at the open-air restaurant nearby. Wimbledon uses two live hawks to scare away pigeons, and it usually works. But the pigeons got out of hand, and the hawks couldn’t take care of them all. So what did Wimbledon do? They employed marksmen, I assume with pellet guns or the like, since using anything more powerful than a .22 is overdoing it for pigeons. The Wimbledon spokesman says that pigeon droppings on the restaurant table were deemed to be a health hazard, which they very much are. But PETA has to completely come in and do their thing. (In case you didn;t know, PETA’s thing is trying to get humans in jail and trying to get animals glorified. It is a very good example of mankind’s most common trait: stupidity.) Wimbledon employd the marksmen after the hawks failed to do their work. But PETA says “Since the use of marksmen to kill pigeons appears to have been carried out as a first, rather than a last resort, and not out of concern for public health, but rather because the animals were deemed inconvenient by players, you appear to be in violation of the law.” PETA needs, to put it bluntly, to shut up. PETA is simply ridiculous. They’re pigeons, for gosh sakes! The most undesirable birds on the planet besides crows and ravens! PETA doesn;t care about public health or the law, unless it has to do something with animals. Now, had Wimbledon been killing the pigeons because they were disrupting matches, I would call that a drastic measure, but they were doing it because of health hazards. (That probably is an excuse, but still.) PETA has no right to even exist.


Quote of the Amount of Time I Want to Leave it Up Here

"I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've seen C-Beams... glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost... like tears... in rain. Time... to die." ~Roy Batty (Blade Runner)
