Animals you have helped (Page 2)
PureSilver67: NUP ... That is possibley the biggest "help", i.e. not eating them ...
nevertheless, animals that can be bred in good conditions and killed humanely is one step down. there could be an entire discussion on the pros and cons of being vegan or being a omnivore - but it's the individual's choice.
PureSilver67: Yes, people fight for the survival of many animals.
In particular, I fight for those that are endangered or susceptible to being diminished by humans to such an extent that the population can not sustain itself and those that do not breed fast enough or being killed at a faster rate than the population can sustain ...
As I stated above, animals such as cattle, sheep, pigs, horses, dogs and cats can all be bred and maintained in good conditions
However, animals such as lions, tigers, orangutans, whales (most of them), pandas all can not be bred in great numbers
I am NOT advocating eating any particular species nevertheless for those that are eaten (and therefore killed by people) it is my opinion that it should be done as humanely as possible and that as much (if not all) of the animal is used from the meat to the bones and offal for food to fertiliser.
PuRpLeBuNnY99: I WAS STANDING OUT IN MY BACK YARD AND I SAW A PONY THAT GOT TRAPPED IN A BARB WIRE AND I RISKED MY LIFE SAVING IT FROM DEATH CUZ IF I DIDNT SEE HER THEY WOULD OF BEEN DEAD. AND NOW SHES MY PONY
Lediannaia_Koroleva: I want to thank all the wire users that have kept a wonderful atmosphere here by sharing their comments and replying in such a friendly way. To those that are in a bad mood or just feel like arguing, please think and reflect upon why you want to say something offensive or rude and avoid doing it.
Thanks again to the great people who express their experiences and thoughts here!
DarkAngel102: Purplebunny99, what you did for that pony was amazing. Many people would have just walked away or just called animal patrol and hoped they would have gotten there in time. You risking your life for that pony was amazing. It's almost like what my family did for Spirit except we did not risk our lives. We simply saw an animal in need of help and helped him. When I think about all the people that would have just saw the pony and considered him/her unhelpable I feel sick. You are a great person and I hope you will consider you saving the pony a very couragious and brave thing to do. Not just because your life was risked, but because you had the heart to help and to house the animal.
PureSilver67: Sad to say, but my dog attacked one of our/ mum's chickens ... luckily I could rescue the chicken but not before she had all her back feathers pulled out and quite a deep gash on her back.
I do not believe in punishment (as in smacking or whatever) for our dog, but she did get firmly told "no" and "bad dog" several times .. which she KNOWS the meaning of. She also had to stay in the outside kennel for the night.
Mum has got the chicken in a box and if she doesn't die from shock (which she hadn't by this morning. it happened yesterday) she should recover.
HAL 9000: I have a story too. A few years ago, we were hiking through the Scottish Highlands. Suddenly we heard a sheep (ewe) baaing. The reason for this was a little lamb fallen into a gorge. It was very weak and has a bloody nose. I climbed down and rescued the lamb. After family reunification there was the good feeling to have done something well.
Lediannaia_Koroleva: I know that feeling; it's unique! HAL 9000, what you did was and still is wonderful!
AnotherDamnStoner: All of our animals were helped actually when I think about it...
One was in a shopping cart infront of a K-Mart (Has one eye but is the nicest cat ever)
And the other two are from a neighbors house. They abandoned all their animals and just moved without them. Were roaches everywhere it was sick.
DarkAngel102: that's dispicable! Just leaving an animal alone like that! You are a great person stoner. PureSilver, I hope the chicken recovers. It's great you helped that lamb Hal. Yes, you did PurpleBunny99, it was a very brave thing to do.
PureSilver67: Ah yes, the chicken is fine and is now growing feathers back.
Stoner ... that's lovely. I see abandoned animals a lot and it's disgusting. Because I live in a rural area people "dump" them here quite often. I usually try to catch them and take them to the RSPCA.
