One was a horrifying video about angora's in China and then with a counterpoint of angora's being done well in New Zealand. The second about some animals seized in Indiana.
I was going to Link to the video from the angora's in China, but since I don't know all who reads this blog and I wouldn't want my lad seeing the video I'm not going to risk letting children see it. Suffice it to say that animals SHOULD NOT BE treated like that. If you are an adult go look look it up on youtube WITHOUT your children being around. Seriously.
BUT I will link to the counterpoint.
200+ Animals confiscated. 200+ rabbits,a goat and some turtles taken.
The video has me a bit concerned.. it shows built up feces in a CARRIER. It shows me healthy looking rabbits that aren't stained or discoloured. Granted one can't determine health without putting hands on the rabbits, but via the video they looked good. Clean eyes and feet. Unstained/unmatted fur. Showing energy and desire to move around. So one can't think that the rabbits were in THAT horrible of a situation.
A fuss is made about the unheated garage... Big whoop. Rabbits have fur coats. What they need is blockage from the wind and they do just fine. So I don't understand that emphasis.
The owner "willingly" gave them up. From what I understand the way the law is written it's either give them up or face atrocious boarding fees. I'd be giving them up too (unless I was fabulously wealthy).
Two sides to every story that I know full well.
Don't go reading the comments. I know from past experience that all you get is "hey you defend the owner so YOU go sit in a cold cage in feces" to the "give me proof that something bad happened here". It's a back and forth argument that solves nothing.
