KANSAS CITY, MO. On my recent trip to Kansas City, MO., I attended the Lyons, Tigers, and Bears Symposium sponsored by the USDA/APHIS at their headquarters located there. I was hoping to learn from the veterinarian experts selected to speak at the event and of course I did. However, a clear and deliberate Animal Rights Agenda unfolded as speaker after speaker heralded the doctrine of limiting private ownership, placing animal needs above human needs, and the theory that human contact with animals is stressful to the genetic makeup of the animals. This sounds logical until you consider the animals’ shrinking natural habitats, poaching, dying without veterinarian care, and lack of proper dietary needs that exist in the wild.
The list of attendees was a virtual who’s who of the animal world from big city zoos to private circus owners. Oh, let us not forget that (HSUS) Humane Society of the United States representatives were there as well as (GFAS) Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries spewing hatred of private ownership. I could not help but begin to wonder if this was still a USDA sponsored event? I lost count of how many times (AZA) Association of Zoos and Aquariums and (GFAS) were mentioned throughout the two day event. Not to mention, an actual presentation by Benjamin Callison, executive director of HSUS sponsored Black Beauty Ranch.
Of Course, Benjamin Callison played a video featuring a rescue of some privately owned big cats allegedly abandoned and used it to call ALL private ownership irresponsible. Further, Tim Harrison, Outreach For Animals, used the Zanesville Ohio Massacre incident to discredit private ownership and made an attempt to dispute the growing belief that Terry Thompson did not commit suicide but was murdered with his animals. Then released and slaughtered by animal rights terrorists and local law enforcement.
The most alarming concern I have is the USDA seems to be embracing the animal rights ideology and their intentional violation of personal freedoms. Who will decide WHO gets to possess these animals? HSUS? GFAS? With more and more rights and personal freedoms being stripped away from the American people every day, will only a select few end up with these animals? What does this mean to the fate of these endangered species? Sounds like socialism or communism to me!
During the instruction given by Kellie Heckman, (GFAS), Kellie blurted out… “its’ all about the money”. Of course she immediately tried to cover up her comment when she heard the gasps come from the audience. But to no avail, the true intent of Animal Rights was exposed…. ITS’ ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!!!
Every Animal Industry in the country should be alarmed. Animal Rights is alive and well. It is being embraced by our own USDA and to remain silent about this would be a grave mistake. WAKE UP & SPEAK UP!!!
