Speak Out About the Unnecessary Slaughter of the “Escaped” Animals in Ohio: Demand Regulation that Prohibits Keeping Exotic Animals

I wrote a few days back (and I’m sure you’ve read plenty) about the horrible situation that occurred when the deranged jack ass let various large and “exotic” animals free from cages in Ohio. What ensued was a ridiculous killing spree by blood-hungry cops who likely just wanted trophies. They easily could have simply tranquilized instead of killing. As you heard, the dead near 50, including rare Bengal Tigers.

Well, due to the idiocy of Ohio and the wacko governor John Kasich, there are no such regulations on keeping such animals. Yeah, believe it or not.

Safe to say that if Ohio wasn’t so stupid, this wouldn’t have occurred.

Once Again, “Shoot to Kill” Instead of Tranquilize and Save: Loose Animals in Zanesville, Ohio Hunted Instead of Saved

**I want to add this a day after the original post below: this was found in an article: "The animals that were killed include 18 rare Bengal tigers and 17 lions." FU again to you bastards who went straight to killing! 18 Rare Bengal Tigers??!! WTF? You HAD to kill them? BS. You just wanted a trophy you sickos!


First, what the hell was some jack ass doing with animals like bears, wolves, etc.? WTF did he expect would happen should they get loose?

You’ve likely heard that “An Ohio town is under lockdown as dozens of wild animals including bears, wolves and tigers have escaped from a private preserve are and are on the loose after the owner of the preserve has been found dead.”

Everyone knows that cops lean toward killing. But, you’d hope that faced with the reality of killing an animal that was unnaturally caged for a long time, that they’d vote for sedation. But, oh, wait, they’re men too, and men love to kill. Oh, I guess saving them is too much work for gun-happy police.

Yes Again! Vegetarian Strongman Patrik Baboumian Pledges to Go Vegan for the Rest of 2011!

I wrote last week about vegetarian strongman Patrik Baboumian, who won Germany's Strongest Man 2011 Competition. You can read that story here: http://geari.blogspot.com/2011/09/yes-vegetarian-strongman-patrik.html

So not only has he proved to the world and to the haters that a vegetarian diet not only is healthy, he also proves that it can make you stronger and a better athlete.

In a recent blogging, he states that he’s going vegan for the rest of 2011. Check it out here: http://www.armenian-viking.com/?p=192

Right on Patrik! You and I will keep on proving the haters wrong in the weight room!

Vietnam, like China, Supports Stealing, Torturing, and Eating Dogs: Common in Many Restaurants

What a disturbing story. Seems China isn’t the only sick country in the world that gets off on torturing and then eating dogs. Seems that many in Vietnam also love to steal, and then torture and eat dogs, many of which were sold to restaurants.

I’m not going to go on and on about this, as this is an obviously horrible situation. I’ve instead pasted in parts of the story below which summarize this horrendous cruelty taking part daily in Vietnam and other savage Asian countries (“[t]he tradition, also popular in parts of China, South Korea and the Philippines…”)

You can read the full story here: http://news.yahoo.com/dognappers-spark-deadly-violence-across-vietnam-090441619.html

"Dog meat is a delicacy in Vietnam that's often on the menu at parties, especially in the north. Restaurants specializing in barbecue dog are especially popular at the end of each lunar month when men dine on canine in hopes of purging bad luck."

"Dog restaurants in the capital, Hanoi, have boomed as Vietnam has become one of Asia's fastest-developing economies."

“…thieves who cruise neighborhoods on motorbikes, snaring pets quicker than a U.S. car thief can hotwire a Cadillac Escalade. Sometimes, they incapacitate the dogs first by shooting them with darts or arrows pulsating with electric current.”

"Scruffy medium-sized dogs are commonly seen jammed into wire cages on backs of motorbikes in Vietnam. They are slaughtered, skinned and roasted, and can be seen dangling from wires outside restaurants, tails straight and teeth bared. Dog dishes range from barbecues to soups served with pungent shrimp paste."
