Re: “This is crime fighting?

Durango, I'd take Bambi. Same regarding the squirrels, eLwood. Block off your attic, don't hurt innocent creatures.

Re: “This is crime fighting?

How can anyone be so cruel as to shoot pellets at a deer and let it run off in pain? Shame on you Durango.

Re: “What the great ate

Afraid you are grossly incorrect widj. Suggest you do some reading on the subject. Here's a starter for you:

Foie gras, the French term for "fatty liver," is the product of extreme animal cruelty. It is the swollen, diseased liver of ducks and geese who are force-fed just up until the point of death before being slaughtered. Birds suffer tremendously, both during and after the force-feeding process, as their physical condition rapidly deteriorates. In just a few weeks, their livers swell up to ten times their normal size, and the birds can scarcely stand, walk, or even breathe. At this point, they are slaughtered, and their livers are peddled as a "gourmet" delicacy.

Feel free to take a look at the website I posted earlier. It is not a PETA site. You can also Google foie gras and find many sites with horrific pictures of this barbaric practice that is banned in several countries. The animals are confined to extremely small cages where they can barely turn around or even move. Do some research. A metal pipe being shoved into their mouths is a far cry from the way they are fed by their mothers.

Re: “What the great ate

When checking out the website for this book, I was saddened to see that Matthew Jacob lists foie gras as one of his favorite foods. Foie gras is banned in some countries because of its cruel practice of force feeding ducks and geese with a metal pipe down their throats. I hope he will reconsider and select more humane choices. http://www.nofoiegras.org/
