• To be fair, a lot of these animals are vicious dogs, totally feral. They move in packs and attack people and domestic pets, and are a legitimate menace.

  • Dars is discussing 5 Reasons You Should Boycott the Zoo on the boards1 year ago

    This is the issue I have with PETA. Good intentions they have generally, but they take them to extremes, no middle ground. This thread is a good example. It assumes that all zoos are lousy zoos and should be boycotted without exception. Really a rather damaging way to come at it, to view matters of animal rights in such a black and white view.

    @vegan01 You mean the violent terrorist group ALF?

  • Dars is discussing When people become the hunted on the boards1 year ago

    @Iweske To think that there is zero difference between a human and any other creature would be quite a stretch however, there is no comparing the difference in fear felt by a human being hunted and a wolf or a […]

  • Dars is discussing When people become the hunted on the boards1 year ago

    Humans are more self-aware than animals, they can visualize about their potential future better and therefore can experience true terror. Animals can be aware they’re being hunted, trying to outrun their pursuers. […]

  • Dars is discussing Jesus…god's son??? on the boards1 year ago

    A forum is what we’re on now. The peta2 boards are a forum for animal rights activism.

  • Dars is discussing Jesus…god's son??? on the boards1 year ago

    To be fair, the Americans won pretty much because of insane amounts of French support. The French hated the Brits more than the American colonists did, and sent over huge loads of supplies like gunpowder, ammo, […]

  • Dars is discussing Am I Right About This? on the boards1 year ago

    @hakred has it quite right. ‘Right’ and ‘wrong’ aren’t set in stone. If you believe it is immoral to eat meat, you are not obligated to.

  • Dars is discussing A QUESTION FOR CHRISTIANS… on the boards1 year ago

    Christmas used to be a pagan winter carnival. To help acclimatize converted Pagans to Christianity better, the Church instituted Christian holidays around the same time as old Pagan holidays so they could still […]

  • Views are subjective however. What you see is cruel, they may not.

  • Dars is discussing Ringling Bros. banned me on fb on the boards1 year ago

    Just cutting someone off who barges int to criticize you doesn’t seem shady to be me, in an of itself at least. Seems pretty fair and reasonable.

  • Dars is discussing Respecting animals in a better way on the boards1 year ago

    Troll, but I’ll comment anyway. I wouldn’t say hunting is evil, indeed it is a good thing for many families and charities that rely on food donations. There are some rotten hunters sure, but there are rotten […]

  • Dars is discussing My boyfriend's Dad is a butcher! on the boards1 year ago

    How do you know his dad hates animals? Just because he’s a butcher doesn’t mean he hates them, he just sees them in a different light. My own father’s done a fair bit of hunting and butchering, but he certainly […]

  • Dars is discussing My boyfriend's Dad is a butcher! on the boards1 year ago

    Well I certainly don’t see you having to dump the boy, he’s not the butcher. If the opportunity comes up, talk to his dad about your beliefs but don’t expect him to leave his job and change his obviously extremely […]

    @LittleLotte I appreciate your less militant approach to this topic. I agree with agreeing to disagree.

  • Dars is discussing Help prevent more Russian orca captures on the boards1 year ago

    I doubt that any traction in Russia will be made towards animal rights before we can sort out their critical human rights issues.

  • Dars is discussing "Humane" Zoos vs. Animal Sanctuaries on the boards1 year ago

    @LittleLotte Not to me. If that is the only issue at hand, then I consider it an acceptable trade to offer this manner of learning environment about such creatures.

  • Dars is discussing "Humane" Zoos vs. Animal Sanctuaries on the boards1 year ago

    @LittleLotte I’ll have to check the zoo for some of your questions, but as for some of the others, Yes we do have birds. The birds of prey are kept in enclosures of varying sizes, while the waterfowl and peacocks […]

  • Dars is discussing "Humane" Zoos vs. Animal Sanctuaries on the boards1 year ago

    @Iweske Not all zoo’s are terrible, it depends on the zoo management. We have a local zoo which takes excellent care of the animals.
