Bizarro - hee, hee

I love DawnWatch (an animal advocacy e-mail)!! If you are interested, you can sign up for your own e-mail media alerts here.

You do realize that if extremist animal rights activists had their way, dogs as companion animals would basically cease to exist because all animals would be altered and therefore reproduction would not be possible, except for cloning I suppose. And the books this site has on their 'recommended reading page' many are from the guy who is heavily involved in PETA which has a nasty habbit of actively killing dogs/other companion and show creatures under the guise of "dead is better than this!"

I'm all for animal rights, but extremists in ANY area be it religeon, science, animal rights, etc aren't good for anyone in the long run.

Oh , I know. I don't think Karen Dawn is that much of an extremist - she typically doesn't attempt to evangelicize animal rights - she is respectful of people that aren't "hardcore."

Dawnwatch is more a barometer of what is currently being written in today's media and what is on television. She has pitbulls and isn't anti-companion animal (although for all I know she is anti-performance dog). She is a little wacky in that she promotes a veggie diet for dogs (which I think is wrong, being a vegetarian myself)!

In general though, Dawnwatch provides a link to articles of interest regarding all animal welfare including those that are raised purely to be slaughtered without the PETA like self-rightiousness.

By the way, HBO is currently showing a documentary on Ingrid Newark which I would love to see as she is a bit insane!

I should have started the comment above, "Oh, I agree" - rather than "Oh, I know."

I though you were rather 'in the middle', and figured you were all up to snuff on this stuff, but just thought I'd mention it in case.

JULES & IKE said...

Thank you. It's a good conversation to have! I am all for more information.
