Any Needless Animal Suffering is Wrong

December 1st, 2013 Posted in Uncategorized

I forget how it came up, but at Thanksgiving dinner someone mentioned how an ER doctor said they were seeing more rat bites because a new poison is being used that is driving them crazy. And causing them more pain, I’m guessing.

Yesterday, I passed by a dying rat. It wasn’t moving much, and it was very clearly suffering. I almost burst into tears. A different roll of the dice and this could have been someone’s pet. It’s just this small creature, and it was in pain.

    I’m no expert, but this may be what they’re talking about:

    I agree so with your comment, Stacy. Poisoning is such a prolonged and painful death and, as tagryn references above, it has consequences for other animals and wildlife as well.
