The Circle of Life
It’s late and I need to go to sleep, but I gotta get this out or I’ll never get any rest:
What the hell is up with all of those animal rights people crying and breaking down over the cops shooting those animals in Ohio?
For those of you who don’t read the news, a gentleman in Ohio ran a wildlife reserve and apparently stocked up on random animals. This gentleman then decided to go out with a bang by killing himself. Before doing so though, he freed all of the animals.
Now, if these were chipmunks, chimps and maybe a few dogs then I could see it being jacked up that the cops shot the damn things. Even I’m not that heartless. There were 56 animals in total. Notable animals include:
18 Bengal tigers
6 Black Bears
2 Grizzly Bears
In one description the paper wrote, “Officers were forced to shoot one tiger when it became agitated after being shot with a tranquilizer.” Anything with claws, fangs and the ability to outrun me is already scary. Add to that the fact that instead of falling down, it became “agitated” when shot with a tranquilizer, and you have my unconditional support to shoot it.
Some argue that the animals were frightened and just defending themselves. Riiiiiight. I wonder what a lion does when it’s afraid of something. Probably the same thing it does when it’s hungry. It can outrun you, out jump you and should your out of shape ass suddenly find the strength and agility to climb a tree, guess what…It can do that too. The Lion King has confused a lot of our generation. That wasn’t Mufasa, devoted father and Darth Vader soundalike, out there. That was something that could easily take out a daycare full of children and it wasn’t alone. There were 17 Mufasa’s, 18 Tony the Tigers and a shit load of Baloos.
You wanna be mad at someone, be mad at the asshole who freed them before killing himself.
