...and nothing has changed. PETA is still killing all the animals it can lay its grubby little hands on. There's a good article about this on the Atlanta Animal Welfare Examiner.
And San Francisco, the left coast bastion of frootz and nutz, wants to ban the sale of animals by pet stores. This would not be limited to a ban on sales of dogs and cats, but also small mammals such as hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, mice and chinchillas. Sales of birds may be banned as well.
Read about it on the Animal Law Coalition site.
When are people going to wake up and realize that our right to own a pet is being whittled away? That every use of the word "guardian" chips away at the concept of pet ownership? If you change "owner" to "guardian", the concept of property ownership ceases to pertain and the right to own that property can be legislated away.
Duh, people. Wake up. The enemy of our friends is at the door.
