Source: Election 2016-Bernie Sanders-PRO Animal Rights-ANTI Animal Welfare

Here’s the facts you need to consider before supporting Bernie Sanders who co-supports and part of the problem we are facing in this country that is DESTROYING Animal Culture.

HSUS/PETA/SPCA -Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists taking away the rights to own your animals and creating bills that effect ALL areas of animal ownership including but not limited to pet owners domestic and exotic, farmers, and hunters.

If you do not support Animal Rights but instead support Animal Welfare then you can not support Bernie Sanders. The corruption in Wall Street is what Sanders claims is the problem but the corruption of Not for Profits (NFP) which he fully supports as a Socialist, is one of the biggest problems facing Americans with money not being used as it was intended and paying high dollar salaries to NFP executives who use those funds inappropriately. Bernie Sanders supports HSUS which is under investigation for FRAUD in Oklahoma and other states. HSUS settled out of court with the Feld Co. for 15 million dollars Yet HSUS has never been investigated by the FBI for the fraudulent activity which led to that corruption.

If Sanders and Clinton are the best that the Democrat Party has to offer then it’s time to take a stand and leave the party to support a presidential candidate who support the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights that gives you the right to Life, Liberty and YOUR Property.

See the facts…Do not support a Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorist!

Election 2016-Bernie Sanders-PRO Animal Rights-ANTI Animal Welfare

•February 11, 2016 • 1 Comment

Bernie Sanders campaign is based on Wall Street corruption and Big Business not paying enough tax…Yet he supports Not for Profits in this country that are more corrupt than Wall Street especially HSUS where he has co-sponsored several bills that will have a major impact on the lives of US citizens and American culture to live by the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights for Life, Liberty and PROPERTY!!!

If you support the CORRUPT agenda of Socialist Bernie Sanders then you are supporting the corruption of a Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorist that not only lives within our borders but is an ANTI-American leader who has been in the Senate for years and now running for President of the United States.

If all that the Democrat party has to offer is Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton then it’s time to leave a party that accepts UN Agenda 21/203o, supports allowing Not for Profits that pay no tax on MILLIONS and more corrupt that Wall Street then it’s time to leave a party that does not support the Constitution and the American Culture!!!

Remember the Fanatical Animal Rights Agenda wants to end ALL relationships with people.

I repeat, Bernie Sanders is a Socialist that he doesn’t deny and a Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorist; he has co-sponsored HSUS Acts (bills) to become laws*…!!! (*read on and see the Bills that he is proud to be the co-sponsor of…)

There is a big difference from Animal Rights and Animal Welfare-The NFPs want to stake a claim to animal welfare as their cause however The facts are the facts that demonstrate the difference:

Animal Welfare or Animal Rights?
Here are some of the differences:

As Animal Welfare advocates. . .
· We seek to improve the treatment and well-being of animals.
· We support the humane treatment of animals that ensures comfort and freedom from unnecessary pain and suffering. 
· We believe we have the right to “own” animals — they are our property.
· We believe animal owners should provide loving care for the lifetime of   their animals.


As [Fanatical] Animal Rights [Terrorists] Activists . . .
· They seek to end the use and ownership of animals, including the keeping of pets.
· They believe that any use of an animal is exploitation so, not only must we stop using animals for food and clothing, but pet ownership must be outlawed as well.
· They want to obtain legal rights for animals as they believe that animals and humans are equal.
· They use false and unsubstantiated allegations of animal abuse to raise funds, attract media attention and bring supporters into the movement.

Now, How about a look at Bernie’s record -Let’s see if you would still support him after seeing his record…If you do then you are supporting Animal Rights NOT Animal Welfare!!!

Every one of the following Acts (proposed bills) that Sanders has co-sponsored support the Fanatical Animal Rights Agenda:


Animal Rights

Sen. Bernie Sanders was a co-sponsor of the following Animal Rights legislation during 2014:

  • Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act- Would prevent the breeding and possession of big cats (cougars, lions, leopards, jaguars, cheetahs and lion/tiger hybrids), while still permitting accredited zoos and wildlife sanctuaries to operate in the important conservation and welfare role that they currently play in the United States.  Private citizens who currently own big cats will still be allowed to own them, but will be required to register their animals if this legislation is signed into law.
  • Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety Act- Would ensure breeders and pet store owners provide dogs with living spaces that are clean, spacious, and are free of infestation by pests or vermin. The legislation would also require that the health of these dogs be monitored by a veterinarian and would ensure that the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has adequate authority to close loopholes that allow domestic puppy mills to continue operating in the United States.
  • Safeguard American Food Exports Act- Would permanently prohibit the slaughter of horses for human consumption in the United States, as well as the transportation of horses for slaughter overseas.
  • Captive Primate Safety Act- Would make it unlawful for a person to import, export, transport, sell, receive, acquire, or purchase a live animal of any prohibited wildlife species in interstate or foreign commerce.
  • Egg Products Inspection Act- Would phase out the use of battery cages for egg laying hens in favor of enriched housing that allows chickens room to move, and includes perches, nesting boxes, and places to scratch. It would prohibit forcing new laying cycles by withholding food or water and making sure the ammonia levels from manure are kept low.
  • Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act- Would amend the Animal Welfare Act to impose criminal penalties for deliberately attending or encouraging anyone less than 18 years of age to attend an animal fighting venture.
  • Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act- Currently, under The Horse Protection Act, owners and caretakers who are found guilty of participating in soring may be disqualified from participating in any aspect of equestrian competitions for up to a year and can be fined up to $3,000. The PAST Act would ban the use of soring devices and strengthen penalties for violations of the Horse Protection Act.

Additionally, Sanders signed onto the Senate Horse Slaughter Defund letter that was sent to the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies during April of 2014. He also signed onto a letter to Director Collins about the Council of Councils Working Group on the Use of Chimpanzees in the NIH-Supported Research Report during this session of Congress.

Each and every one of the above acts is a misnomer having nothing to do with what the name of these acts implies-Most of these very bad bills have already been discussed on this blog…
All are HSUS/PETA/SPCA supported/sponsored bills that have nothing to do with Animal Welfare…So, it seems that good old Bernie is a Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorist and as a Socialist, is in agreement with and accepting the policies of Agenda 21/2030 that will destroy our American way of life and culture du to his support of CORRUPT Not for Profits.
Our animals are our property and do not take president over the lives of people.
Our constitution was written concerning people not animals.

Please consider or reconsider who you support by what you support.

UPDATE-Tiger Ridge Gets Their Day in Court

•February 6, 2016 • Leave a Comment

We’ve waited a long time for this and I’ve been hoping for a positive response from the court in favor of Tiger Ridge…So we will continue to wait…


Tiger Ridge Exotics and the state present evidence in courtroom

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (13abc Action News) – The fight continues for the owner and supporters of Tiger Ridge Exotics in Wood County Common Pleas Court.

Thursday, Hetrick’s attorney presented examples of permit applications and the time it took the state to approve or deny them. Hetrick’s permits were denied and these hearings were an appeal of that decision.

The Hetrick family argue that those denials violated his due process and equal protection rights.

They say they’ve been singled out unfairly. They say other exotic animal owners were also late with paperwork and applications, but say the ODA worked with those people instead of seizing their animals.

“[There was] a lot of documentation of people applying late for permits, late for registration, late for renewals,” Corrina Hetrick, with Tiger Ridge Exotics said. “It’s just who they worked with and who they didn’t.”

A final decision likely won’t happen until May.

A spokesperson for the ODA couldn’t comment on pending litigation.


I absolutely had to update this post with a much more informative article-Happiness is getting more information-Especially on a long awaited court date where the owners were screwed over by the state but weren’t screwed over by a judge!!!

from Sentinel-Tribune


Evidentiary hearing held in Tiger Ridge case

The more than year-old legal effort by Tiger Ridge Exotics owner Kenny Hetrick to get back his animals continued Thursday with an evidentiary hearing in Wood County Court of Common Pleas.

The hearing, set to continue today, is to allow additional evidence in the case as Hetrick appeals two state permit denials.

Hetrick had filed two cases appearing the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s separate denials of a rescue facility permit and a wildlife shelter permit last August; the administrative hearings for those took place in Columbus. The ODA denied the permit applications in the summer.


Briefs filed in Wood County court appealing the denials argued points including that the ODA “applied the wrong regulations” to Hetrick concerning the rescue permit and, in both cases, the ODA “arbitrarily and capriciously interpreted and applied” the Ohio Revised Code “and as a result Hetrick was denied equal protection under the law.”


The appeals ask that Hetrick be given the permits, that his facility be re-inspected, and that he be given time to comply with any non-compliance issues found.


A post on the “Save Tigerridge Exotics” Facebook page on Wednesday characterized the hearing as “the first step of many, but an important one. This is to introduce very important evidence not permitted in (ODA administrative) hearings.”


During the hearing Thursday, Hetrick’s attorney, Karen Novak, examined the ODA’s Melissa Simmerman, assistant state veterinarian, concerning a multitude of documents about other individuals’ exotic animal registrations and inspections in the state, as well as renewal permit applications.


James Patterson, an assistant attorney general representing the ODA in the proceedings, continually objected to the documents being entered as evidence in the matter. At issue, he said, was that some of the documents had already been entered in the administrative hearings or excluded there, or that others were not admissible. In some of the latter cases, he noted that the people discussed in the documents were not in similar situations to Hetrick.


Kelsey noted the objections and said he would consider whether the evidence would be allowed at a later time.

Among the individuals discussed in the presented documents was one who was previously issued an ODA permit but did not correct subsequently discovered violations. Despite that, he was issued a 2015 permit.


“To date, as we stand here, is he in compliance?” Novak asked Simmerman.

“Not to my knowledge,” she said.

Also noted were some renewal applications that were submitted late, but still resulted in permits being issued.


Novak also discussed the case of Cindy Huntsman, who operates Stump Hill Farms in Massillon, and during the period discussed in the hearing had predatory cats, bears, primates and alligators at her facility.

As discussed in court, Huntsman had never been issued an ODA permit, nor filed for one. Huntsman reportedly told the ODA that she was exempt because she already held a license for a bald eagle; the ODA did not agree.

Simmerman said that Huntsman had since relinquished eight bears and four alligators to the ODA.


After a question from Novak, Simmerman indicated that she was not aware that one of Huntsman’s tigers was provided to the “Today Show” in New York.


The case began Jan. 28 of 2015 when 12 animals were seized from Tiger Ridge, located on Fremont Pike in Stony Ridge, after the denial of a state-mandated permit for the facility. Kelsey subsequently issued an order for the animals to be returned, which incited a sustained legal back-and-forth between the ODA and Hetrick in a number of jurisdictions.


One of the animals, a lion named Leo, was euthanized by the ODA in April. The animal had reportedly been in failing health.


Seems Simmerman, STATE VETERINARIAN, was unaware of a lot of things…Yet has the power to make major decisions  concerning the lives of animals…WTF!?!



It was a great day for private owners in  court today-The proof against Governor Kasich’s Department of Agriculture (ODA) came to the surface!!! Return the animals to their longstanding, rightful legal owers!!!

Zoo Wars-Private Exotic Animal Ownership v Black Pine Animal Sanctuary (Lori Gagen AKA Lori Gag-Me)

•February 6, 2016 • 4 Comments

“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.” -Ayn Rand


There was no sign of cruelty, the vet advised the animals were fine-Not good enough for the A/C officer -The house needing repair and a landlord not living up to his responsibility led to arrests, an animal seizure and the house condemned-The landlord…got nothing…so far…Meanwhile, everyone wants to know about the animals and how they are doing. Two are at Black Pine Animal Sanctuary and boy is that Bitch taking advantage of a heartbreaking situation…Exploiting animals caught in a bad situation -an 18 year old monkey away from the only caregivers he’s ever known-and like old people he’s thin and loosing hair…Give me and everyone else a break…

Lori Gagen (Gag-Me) has been very busy on line this weekend trying to run a fundraiser exploiting animals that she received as a so called ‘rescue’. But wait…lets step back for a minute and view a post on January 25 about monkeys in residence at Black Pine…Hannah, a 20 year old Rhesus Macaque -please remember, this is just 5 days earlier…

from Black Pine Animal Sanctuary FB entry:

“We are sad to report the death of Hannah, a rhesus macaque monkey and long-time Black Pine resident. Hannah’s peaceful departure occurred today, with assistance, surrounded by people who loved her. She would have celebrated her 20th birthday later this year. Hannah has resided at Black Pine since 1995, a surrendered former “pet”. She leaves behind her long-time companion, Yoda.”

“We have reported in recent months about the serious health issue that Hannah had been dealing with since it was diagnosed last June. [Blogger Note: How much did this monkey suffer? Why did the monkey develop a stomach tumor that went u-noticed because they do not believe in contact with the animals so, just how long was that tumor there for before it was noticed?] A growing tumor in her lower abdomen had become so large that keepers observed, for the first time on Saturday afternoon, that she was no longer able to urinate normally. The behavior was witnessed again on Sunday. The tumor, which had been closely monitored for months, was so intertwined in her bladder and around her intestines, and growing so quickly, that doctors agreed there was no hope of a full surgical removal, or that the growth rate could be controlled. This was a fast-growing tumor that had no affect until it had ultimately devastating affects.”

[Blogger Note-What is Lori Gag-Me admitting to?!? That old animals get sick and die…??? That it’s OK for her old monkey to have some sort of illness but not anyone else’s monkey can grow old, get thin and lose some fur as they all can do when  they get old? That any number of problems can be found with an older animal-She’s going to get a team of experts to look at Joe, an 18 year old monkey taken from his longstanding, rightful legal owner, and find something wrong with the monkey-Hopefully, he won’t die in the process but it will be so worth it for the fundraiser. Either way-They won’t use the money on animal care or this facility-But instead, they can give themselves a raise…!!! No matter what the money is ear marked for-That’s a typical facade from a not for profit the likes of Black Pines…I’m not surprised at all!!!]

Black Pine HannahBlack Pine Hannah3Hannah at Black Pine Animal Sanctuary

(Pictures from Black Pines FB page are open for public inspection)

“We are very grateful for the excellent work of our veterinary team, led by Dr. Scott Taylor, Kendallville Animal Clinic, and Lin Staats, Black Pine’s veterinary technician and coordinator. They were supported by doctors from the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo and Dr. Ryan Rothenbuhler from Conley & Koontz Equine Hospital, Inc.”

“This team has been monitoring Hannah’s health and the tumor’s growth for months, and guiding our animal care team to make the changes necessary to keep Hannah happy and as comfortable as possible until the very “end”. She enjoyed many good months, with a great deal of TLC, from so many who loved her here.”

“R.I.P, Hannah. You were a sweet an innocent soul! We will miss you, and make sure Yoda continues to live a happy, fulfilling life in your absence.”

Is Black Pine looking for a new companion for Yoda? Quite suddenly, another monkey is available…Let the war begin…

I am so tired of watching Black Pine and Lori Gag-Me stake a claim to rescue-when it’s NOT!!! Theft of a monkey or any animal from it’s rightful, longstanding legal owner is a theft of property and then they gave that property to Black Pines to take care of it-a responsibility comes with caring for someone else’s property still own by it’s rightful owner…!!! It also appears it was the A/C officer who made the decision as to where the animals would go and not a judge-I could be wrong on this but I strongly suspect it!!! Just like I suspect that no judge would issue a warrant for an animal after a USDA vet (witnessed by the A/C officer) went into the home and found nothing strikingly out of the ordinary-found the animals to be in good health and well cared for…Yet we still see a couple of posts EXPLOITING those animals as a fundraiser-Did Lori Gag-Me even have permission from the ACTUAL owner to use the likeness of those animals when she made those posts on Black Pines FB page?!? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!-I can guarantee that!!!

On Black Pine FB page: Oh wait on viewing the edit history This bitch changed her post-so we’ll just quote what didn’t change:

“We are bearing witness to some people defending the owners of the animals removed yesterday, and crying “foul” for officials removing the animals. Comments on news feeds and other threads lead to some “doubt”.  -BP

The only time you hear anyone defending A/C for STEALING property is from those who want to end private ownership of any animals and end all relationships with animals (except for themselves of course) -Don’t mess with their bread and butter or their playtime with animals that they don’t want you to touch thus less own-OMG!!! What BULLSHIT!!!…Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists being judge and jury while taking away the rights of US citizens…

Ordinance, laws, regulations about animals-ALL illegal against both US and state Constitutions -Against your right to own your property…

Well Lori Gag-Me, let me fill you in on a few laws-Animals taken as evidence is to REMAIN in the county -not to mention the state from which it was taken…You are ILLEGALLY harboring a monkey and a coadimundi…How do you like them apples BITCH!?! There was no proper legal warrant served so get your fucking facts straight.

Disclaimer connected to this blog…Things said are of my opinion and the opinions of others…Yeah, I guess you could say I am not happy about this animal seizure and I really really can’t stand Lori Gag-Me who is breaking the law accepting those animals from the get go!!! Fuck her!!! Stay tuned -B

Once Again Animals Are Used Against A Property Owner -RIP Andrew Wordes

•February 4, 2016 • Leave a Comment

All too often animals are used to harass a property owner-Neighbor against Neighbor, Friend against another Friend, Humane Society and/or Animal Control against a person with false claim of cruelty/abuse, and in this case, City against Property Owner…

Unless you’ve lived it, you will never understand just how much aggression is taken against you when you’ve done NOTHING wrong. It changes your life not to mention how it turns  your whole world upside down.

Andrew Wordes crime, the city wanted his property-They went after him and plagued him until he had just had enough-He could no longer hold out. A stand off ensued until he put an end to it all.

It really had nothing to do with his poultry, although they tried twice to claim cruelty. However, he certainly did have something that the city of Rosewell, GA wanted-the land.

A senseless loss of life.  -Instead of being the aggressor, the city of Roswell should have, could have, resolved the problem easily and peacefully…There are always alternatives that can be worked out rather than by force.

Having lived it, stories like this keep me fighting for property rights. Both US and sate Constitutions and the US Bill of Rights is being abused-US citizens have the right to life, liberty and property. What you do on your property is your business and not for the local government to come along and stick their nose in it…It is not for a city/county to abuse you and harass you to get what they ultimately want. The state and US Constitutions were written for the express purpose to prevent events such as the events that led up to Andrew Wordes death and to stop such ‘witch hunts’ that abuse and hassle private citizens.

Rest In Peace Andrew Wordes

from Off Grid Quest:


Chicken Man kills himself after long fight with Roswell government officials

This is one of those stories that often never makes it to the Front Page of any newspaper or website. It’s a story about Property Rights and Eminent domain. It’s the story of one man who tried to fight back; and sadly it’s the story of a man who lost it all in the process. It’s also a story that can happen to anyone who is reading this article.

Chicken Man Andrew Wordes

The story begins back in 2009 when Andrew Wordes, otherwise known as the Roswell Chicken Man, began his fight to raise chickens on his property. In February 2009, the city of Roswell, GA started to cite Andrew Wordes for raising livestock in his backyard. Wordes, who had started raising chickens on his .97-acre homestead in 2005, decided to fight back. And guess what he won.

But sadly, that’s when the real trouble started:

You see, the story actually has very little to do with chickens. While the city of Roswell, and cities just like it across America, would like people to believe it’s a story about chickens, the real story is about the rights of property owners.

When taking a look at a map that was published back in 2003, as part of Roswell’s 2030 Comprehensive Plan for city improvements, one thing becomes painfully obvious; The city had already planned to take Wordes’ property.

The Map showed that the city had major plans for his property. In fact, his property sat right in the middle of a planned city park. His property was being targeted for “city improvements”, and this fight had nothing to do with chickens. The chickens were really just the catalyst for the city to unlawfully seize his land.

After initially winning his fight in municipal court, the City of Roswell made Wordes life a living hell.

The Harassment Campaign Against Andrew Wordes

On Dec. 14, 2009, the city council approved a new ordinance banning roosters and using lot size to limit how many chickens a resident could keep. Wordes claimed that the harassment started immediately after the meeting, when Roswell police ticketed him for no insurance and a number of other moving violations.

  • In September of 2010, Roswell prosecuted Wordes under the new ordinance claiming he had too many birds for his lot size. The judge found him not guilty since he had the chickens before the ordinance became law.
  • In September of 2010, he was convicted of grading sediment on his land without a permit and having inoperable vehicles in his yard.  He was sentenced to community service.
  • In November of 2010, code enforcement served Wordes with a  nuisance citation.
  • After winning twice in court against the city, the county then got involved and actually cited him for “not properly stacking his firewood.”
  • In 2011, the 84 year-old women who held Mr. Wordes mortgage was harassed by the city into selling Wordes mortgage for forty cents on the dollar. The city then began the foreclosure process.
  • While in the process of trying to save his home, Andrew Wordes was arrested by Roswell Police on the day that he was to bring paperwork that would’ve delayed his bankruptcy and the foreclosure on his home.
  • Wordes was jailed for violating his probation after the city claimed he only served 122 of the 150 hours of community service that he had been ordered to serve.  He then served 99 days in jail.

After his release, he placed a sign on his property that read “Trespassers will be construed as a bodily threat” and then waited for authorities to arrive and remove him.

On Monday at 10:45 a.m. Marshalls arrived at the home. After a two-hour standoff, Wordes advised the Marshall that they needed to immediately leave the property.  That’s when the explosion happened. After years of battling for his right to keep his land, Wordes finally had enough.

Chicken Man Andrew Wordes last act for freedom

On a website dedicated to Andrew Wordes, one of his friends wrote:

We all lost a little something today, Andres was a man of faith with a strong love for God. He was a staunch Constitutionalist with a passion for our freedoms and liberties.

You pushed Mr. Wordes to this point. You marched around Roswell bashing Andrew, annihilating his character, marking him as crazy and filing lawsuits whenever you could, bankrupting him and denying him rights given to property owners in the United States.

Andrew fought the good fight, not just for himself but for others because he knew it could happen to anyone. And it is. Eminent domain is being abused all over our country, just look it up. Communities are plagued with repeated abuses of the use of eminent domain. It’s tragic and your neighborhood could be next. Andrew fought to his last breath, for himself, for me, for you. In his mind, he went on his terms. Right out of Atlas Shrugged. Andrew is at peace now but it’s not over.

The sad truth about this story is its not an isolated incident.   When any government (talking city or county now) finds financial motivations, and they are able to initiate those directives at gunpoint of it’s local law enforcement, it’s important to keep powers in check so that they cannot be abused.

From the Federal Government seizing property because of “environmental regulations”, to local municipalities who use code enforcement agents codes to intimidate people into giving up their land, we have a huge problem in this country. Our property rights are being shredded before our eyes, and it’s only a matter of time before this story becomes an everyday occurrence, and the causes need to be addressed.  Remember, in the U.S, every town, every county, and every State makes many of it’s own laws, so circumstances vary from place to place.  It’s important to get plugged in to where you live and be sure that your local governments are above reproach with their handling of the citizens they intend to serve.

The Chicken Man, Andrew Wordes, in his own words from an interview he gave last month on the Rusty Humphries show.

Law enforcement, who take an oath to protect private citizens, did nothing to protect Andrew Wordes against the abusive hand of government in action and instead joined in and helped them to do it…

A Major Cause of Wrongful Convictions …….. POLITICS !?

•January 30, 2016 • Leave a Comment

“Prosecutors are political animals. They have to be. They hold elected political office, and run for office on a political party ticket. And, once elected, if they want to keep their job, they have to get re-elected. We all know that ‘Job 1‘ for any politician is to get re-elected. Despite all their protestations to the contrary, the constant specter of re-election must have to shade every decision they make. Prosecutors universally run for election on a platform of “tough on crime.” And how do you, as a prosecutor, demonstrate that you’re tough on crime? By getting lots and lots of convictions. In fact, it’s really the only way prosecutors are measured. They get no credit for deciding not to prosecute a case, or for losing a case. I even know of a prosecutor who’s decision to not prosecute a case got him voted out of office in the next election.”

Wrongful Convictions Blog

[Editor’s note: this piece has been very difficult to write.  I’ve been working on it for months, and have deliberated about publishing it at all; I think because the objective it advocates is so daunting.  But I do think it goes to the heart of so much that is wrong with the justice system. I do not have hard data to support my position, and I doubt such data will ever exist, but I do have decades of study and careful observation.  I only report what I observe. Please read it, and just think about it.]

This article will be both editorial and somewhat philosophical, at least to the extent that it expresses conclusions on my part, so please bear with me. But it does address an issue that I believe is one of the key flaws in the justice system – and one that seems to be universally overlooked…

Zoo Wars-“It Was Horrific” -The Stench Of This Retched Story Is What’s “Horrific”

•January 29, 2016 • 9 Comments

Comments pouring in-The community is outraged-Of that “HORRIFIC smell”

I wonder if he brought his Nasal Ranger* along-[Bet he doesn’t know there is such a thing] But if he did…I bet he’d wait to use it after the smell mounts with the animals in his care until the zoo comes to pick them up-TG for the zoo so willing to provide otherwise he might not of done this deed-Wait he waited a week so how much was planned a head of time between the A/C officer, the cops and the zoo!?!

*Nasal Ranger is a field olfactometer   (ol-fac-tom-e-ter)   n  1: a portable odor detecting and measuring device;  2: a nasal organoleptic instrument;  3: instrument for measuring ambient odor dilution-to-threshhold, D/T;  4: a scentometer (slang);  5: “Odor Scope

“A whole lot of “assumptions” in this article! I’m sure the press embellished the story! The comment section says that these folks have a relative that turned them in, the cousin said they have permits, alternative motives perhaps? Are people getting arrested for the number of animals in their home? So I wonder when they will take pictures of the inside of the house, probably while the animals are in there for 24 plus hours, while the owners are in jail and no one to clean up… right! Those should make mighty fine pictures for the court case! Wow! What a world, what happened to giving animal owners a warning notice, if indeed something is wrong? Now it’s flat out arrest your ass and take your animals! SMH”


“So, next time I visit the zoo, and smell the odors that naturally occur, should their animals be seized as well? Out of control, animal control officers! SMH. Heart goes out to this family!”

“This is my family you are talking about. Those animals could not be more loved or cared for because I know! You or the news do not know the facts . Dr. Terry Kaiser was called there to check the animals and he told me and the police that all of the animals were well taken care of and healthy. Oh and by the way the house was clean! The animals are being ripped from their extremely loving home and are not going to do well with strangers and not their mom and dad! Everything they know and love! The person who caused this is shameful and horrible! The news stations will retract this story”

And of course there’s me with mine…
Of course they claim horrific and in their care so by tomorrow, it likely will be -cops are not skilled with exotic animals anymore than a district attorney to care for big cats…Those animals are owned -They already lost their pet shop-so now lets take their animals-What’s wrong with these people-Rally around your neighbors folks to help them get their animals back-

The stench of this story is what’s horrific-

This is still the United states where both state and US Constitutions along with the Bill of Rights were written to grant life, liberty and PROPERTY; laws written for the welfare and well-being for PEOPLE!!!

There is no cruelty issue here-OMG, they didn’t pass the sniff test…the very same person who made that statement had them arrested…and now he’s making plans to place someone else’s property at the zoo…Oh and isn’t it nice that the zoo is so willing to assist them in a wrongful theft of animals-Give me a break-

The stench I smell is reaking from that animal control officer….

‘It was a horrific scene’: Exotic animals found in Mottville home

Albino Wallaby seizure

“Basically, we got called out on a complaint to this residence about a week ago when someone had stated they had possibly seen some kangaroos,” said Gregory Musser, the Animal Control supervisor with the St. Joseph County Sheriff’s department.

As strange as that sounded at first, it wasn’t that far off.

“This is a call we had never received before, so it started off as kind of a joke,” Musser said. “But basically, our investigation led us to a very serious situation.”

Sheriff deputies found more than 20 different animals in the house.

There were wallabies, including a rare albino wallaby, flying squirrels and a monkey.

“Upon entry, it was a very horrific scene,” Musser said. “The smells were unbearable.”

The two tenants were arrested on felony charges of animal cruelty and owning exotic animals without a permit. They’re also facing up to 20 misdemeanor charges.

They told authorities the animals came from a pet store they had that had closed, and they wanted to keep the animals as pets.

A sign for “Downunder Reef Pet Shop and Supplies,” from an old pet sore in Granger, was in their backyard.

For neighbors around here, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise.

“I was in there one time,” said Josh Shook, a neighbor. “It was probably the first year they lived here. They had a giant cat, I think it was either from Africa or India.”

Now the goal is to find a safe place for all these animals.

“We have contacted Binder Park Zoo, and they’ll be down to get a lot of the exotic animals taken out of here and taken back to their zoo so they can be properly cared for,” Musser said.

For right now, the exotic animals are still in the house and the sheriff’s department is watching over them until the zoo can collect them at some point tomorrow.

The good news is that authorities say it appears that most of the animals are in okay shape, though they were living in filthy conditions. But authorities say the monkey could be carrying diseases.


But authorities say the monkey could be carrying diseases…SERIOUSLY?!?

Now where have I heard that before?!? Oh I remember…Authorities in Marion County…Guess ‘AUTHORITIES’ don’t know much about monkeys!!! More like them making the monkey sick rather than anyone getting sick from a pet monkey!!! That’s a FACT!!!

Then again there was likely no nasal ranger so he can’t testify about ‘horrific’ smell!!! Authority my ass-no facilities and no experience with exotic animals and can’t help but question this entire matter-Someone needs to let this guy know that shit stinks-and Wallaby shit more like something he’s never smelled before…

This is heartbreaking! This home and these people are all these animals have ever known! They were very loved! I think it’s ridiculous to just rip them away from their owners. Its not a horrific situation to someone who has and knows animals!

Wallaby-This is not cruelty

Seriously-Does this look like animal cruelty to you?!?
