I have been in the Avian community as a rescuer, rehabilitation consultant, and lover of Parrots for a few years now. I have see some of the worst cases of abuse and neglect of our feather friends, that sometimes I have a hard time wiping it out of my memory.
I have always love animals for as long as I can remember, Parrots are my passion , but I feel for all animals. Just recently I have noticed a trend that is really starting to scare me. Police shooting pit bulls even if they are just standing there doing nothing. There was a report of an older pit bull , limping around her masters house and she even wagged her tail at the police officer. They gunned her down in cold blood. Two weeks ago, a pit bull named star was shot in the head by a police officer in NYC, for protecting her master that was having a seizure on the ground.
They were too worried about the dog after they shot star, that they left the man lay on the ground without medical attention. I made the mistake of watching it on youtube, tears were flowing for star. As she lay on the ground writhing in pain and screaming, her unconscious owner laid a few feet away from her. What really shocks me is that she came running from her masters side and was right in front of him when they shot her. Really, guys, what if you missed you would’ve hit a man that was already down on the ground and unconscious.
You know they say the most horrific murders in the world, started out killing animals and graduated from there. So as I see it, police have become the next murderers. They have no feeling for killing an animal, what’s next , humans because they protect their family? We need to have respect for all gods creatures on this earth, without them our own part of earth is off kilter. Get a grip people, quit killing just to kill.
