 Post subject: This one is horrible.

This is a really horrible story. I couldn't believe it at first, because it sounds like the sort of animal cruelty that would land someone in jail.

Spokane to detonate squirrels tearing up parks
Quote:The Finch Arboretum is being overrun by ground squirrels, and Spokane Parks and Recreation is bringing in some special artillery.

The agency is using a special machine called the Rodenator Pro to detonate some of the estimated 100 to 150 squirrels tearing up the grounds.

They're actually going to blow up the squirrels. That seems very excessive to me. Where's PETA when they could really do something worthwhile? Probably looking for more sweaty towels, I guess.

Seriously? This doesn't border on cruelty, this IS cruelty! If some random person picked up a squirrel and detonated it with common household chemicals, no doubt they'd be arrested and charged with cruelty to animals! This is disgusting. :evil: I understand if they're a problem, but there's got to be other ways to solve it.

Where is PETA in this? This is they type of thing you would think they'd be all over...

Well, you know, that really burns me up! This is blatant murder. I don't care if they say this is a "humane way" to do it, I think they are absolutely wrong. There is nothing "humane" about this. I know the squirrels might be a problem but there just has to be another way to solve this problem rather than killing them. Maybe they could trap some of them and move them to another area, or something. It would be easy to trap them or capture them if they only put some nuts, bird food, corn, or something like that out for them to eat. They go nuts over this stuff. I think squirrels are cute. We have many of them in our back yard and they are clever little boogers at getting their food, etc. I too wonder where PETA is, they need to do something good for once and help save these squirrels. :grumpy:
