SPCA Tick – another one for the Politically Correct persons
I wanted to use a much stronger word than ‘persons’ in the title, but decided against it. So, the Royal New Zealand Society for the Protection and Prevention of Cruelty to Animals put out a press release today about their SPCA Blue Tick.
The idea of having a tick on my bacon or my eggs or whatever that tells me that animals have been treated humanely (their language, not mine) is utterly ludicrous. There are much more important things that need fixing in our society. Our shocking child abuse statistics for one. Someone will go to prison for longer on average for killing an animal than they will for killing a baby. I wonder why we have such high rates of child abuse? The state doesn’t really care.
Another point I want to make is why the heck would you treat an animal humanely? While humane officially means “Having or showing compassion or benevolence”, the term is derived from treating people like a human being. Humane. Not animale. Just saying…
