MEOW! My name is June Buggie, and I have something to say.
It seems that the United States isn’t the only country that makes stupid decisions about animal welfare. You folks in Britain also have a bunch of boneheads deciding our fate.
See, there is this animal called the Badger. Brits love their badgers.
But badgers can carry Bovine Tuberculosis, and spread it to cattle. So how does the British government propose to solve that problem?
Well, kill the badgers, of course!
The government has given license to trained marksmen to kill up to 70% of the badger population in two pilot areas. And people are mad! So am I.
Do you REALLY need to eat milk and cheese so badly that you’re willing to allow animals to die needlessly to fill your need for cholesterol and animal fat? And when I say needlessly, I mean needlessly.
See, there is a vaccination that COULD be given to the cows to prevent TB infection. BUT, it can’t be legally administered. WHAT? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
That’s right, the EU has decided that the vaccine cannot be given to cows, because if you give the vaccine to cows, you can’t then test them for TB. I am scratching my head in amazement at the STUPIDITY of that rationale.
The good news is that many Brits are up-at-arms over this badger cull, and will boycott any dairy farms in the areas where the culling takes place. I am asking YOU good people who live in Britain to join in that boycott. And for the rest of us, let’s let our voices be heard also.
It’s time for you humans to realize that you can’t take such short-sighted measures to ensure your comfort. If you continue to sacrifice the rest of the Earth for your benefit, soon there will be nothing left.
