WARNING: Rant ahead... Probably just don't read

I am absolutely appalled by another blogger's comments on someone's blog that got posted today.  Absolutely appalled.  She doesn't read my blog, and thus I'm sure won't be reading this.  But, I'm disgusted.  I'm not going to comment on her comment, because it would be rude to the blog owner to start a fight.  But I have to say that it shocks me that a horse owner could be so callous to the sanctity of animal life. 

When you end an animal's life for an inconvenience, you may have ended your inconenience for the day, but you have ended that animal's life FOREVER.  Forever might be a hard concept for some people, but you have taken away the biggest blessing any living creature has been given - LIFE.  I would expect a rational person to understand that there are alternatives to killing something when you don't like it's behavior. 

I grew up in a community that thought nothing of killing animals (cats, small dogs, etc.) simply for trespassing.  Yeh, like an animal can comprehend property lines.  It drives me nuts, and so this comment really hit a sensitive spot on me.  I'm an animal lover, and I believe that life is precious (my life and others).  If anyone (human or animal) is going to die - it better be for a damn good reason, and not for a little indiscretion.

Rant over.

  1. Curious what you're referring to? Mostly so I can figure out what the context is.

    1. True. I guess I'm not opposed to the person reading this post and I'm sure if they do, they'll know that I'm speaking to them. Unnecessary violence against animals is not cool in my book. I suppose we all have our own definitions of unnecessary, but obviously this met my definition.
