The Horror of Selfish Humans

For those of you who do not live in Florida, the story in Ohio this week may not have been quite as painful for you, as it was for those here who have had to deal with the out of control, turned loose wherever, wild exotics found all around us.
For some reason, only the idiots who buy/acquire these wild animals can explain, these people try to bring them into an average neighborhood without a thought to the consequences.
And as was the case in Ohio, when these selfish owners can no longer care for them, they just turn them loose, wherever it suits them.
It is hard to understand, harder still to accept.
What happened in Ohio this week is clearly an example of why exotic animals need to be forbidden from being sold or owned, anywhere, ever.
I feel the saddest for little children who had to witness the horror of the ongoing coverage of this story and do not know how each parent managed to explain to their child how or why this all happened.
The whole point is this, exotic animals are not pets, they are wild animals and can never be anyone's pet.
They are wild and should remain so, forever.
Please let us not forget the images we all witnessed this week, for the sake of all those who died, please never forget.
But, we can help change this.
Help to pass the legislation where you live, to outlaw the ownership and sale of exotic animals, like we in Florida are trying so desperately to do.
The forces on the other side are well funded, so it is an uphill battle, at least here in Florida.
No links are given for this story because not one could be found without any pictures.
God Bless them and may they all now rest in peace.
