Today’s Thought:

I oppose both hunting and slaughter. The fact that hunting can be less cruel is not a persuasive reason to justify it. Hunting is the exact opposite of the role predators play in nature. Predators generally take the weak, old, and diseased before they take the strong and healthy prey. Hunters, on the other hand, take the biggest and the strongest, which results in population explosions in herds. That is why there are more deer today than when Columbus landed. On top of which, the Dept of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services (a wholly owned subsidiary of the cattle industry) kills off any predators that cattle ranchers consider a threat to their profits, meaning the murders of wolves, coyotes, bear, mountain lions, etc. Leading the push for predator control is the NRA, gun nuts, arms manufacturers, retailers, outfitters, guides, and taxidermists.

And scumbag Republican legislators looking for cruelty votes.



Armory Notes:

I am unaware of any other blog with the Armory’s mission of radicalizing the animal movement. I certainly hope I am not alone, and that there are similar sentiments being expressed by comrades unknown to me.

If you know of other blogs dedicated to animal rights and the defeat of capitalism, please comment with a link.

  1. Absolutely! And the NRA, gun nuts, arms manufacturers, retailer, outfitters, guides, and taxidermists have the lobbyists to get the attention of legislators and the deep pockets to provide donations. Besides, hunting license fees make up part of the funding for the fish and game departments.

    So it doesn’t matter when over 80% of the general population doesn’t approve of wolf hunting or aerial gunning or trophy hunting. Money speaks louder than polls and petition and emails.

  2. The USDA is responsible for the off balance of nature and is part of the reason why at time they say “there are too many rabbbit” or what ever…The USDA kills off the predators for rabbits and the population explodes. Rabbit breeds of medium to large size are sexually mature at 4 to 4.5 months, giant breeds at 6 to 9 months, and small breeds (such as the Polish Dwarf and Dutch) at 3.5 to 4 months of age. Gestation for a rabbit is 30 days. They can produce 1-14 infants. So just one example how USDA and Wildlife agencies are full of BS….These are testimonies of Wildlife employees who were fired or quit their jobs due to orders requested of the agencies….
