Kelly, I have given up on even TRYING to talk to you...about anything. The only thing we will ever agree on is to disagree.


You're probably right. I have a problem with beating animals to death and/or letting them eat neighbors' pets. You apparently don't.

Jiyabird, I don't know you, but I do know you are a great animal advocate.  

 

It breaks my heart to see these majestic wild animals locked up in small cages and submitted to a life of entertaining humans. Bred for earning money and then discarded. 

 

There are legitimate wildlife refuges that will take these animals, no Clark Co animal will be euthanized. Everyone wants what is best for animals, NOT what is best for one mans ego.

I do agree.
It is not the removal of the animals and shutting him down that upsets as much as the bloody witchhunt.
I DO want what is best for God's magnificent creatures that are slowly becoming extinct.

Kelly, there is no need for a smart alec remark from you. This one was COMPLETELY unnecessary and as far from the truth as you can get and EVERYONE on this chat knows how I feel about all animals.
In fact I respect animals much more than SOME people.
This is why I don't want to even discuss things with you....PLEASE!

As a 'rehabber" he would be reintroducing the animals to their natural habitat.  I wonder how many tigers he has shipped back overseas to their home.

Well, for that he'd have to breed animals that ACTUALLY occur in the wild.

Not the big money designer types,

PETA demands federal probe of deaths at Charlestown animal refuge

A national animal rights organization has asked a federal agency to investigate what it calls preventable animal deaths at a Southern Indiana wildlife refuge.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Wednesday, asking officials to determine whether the deaths of several bears, lemurs and spotted leopards violated the Animal Welfare Act.

PETA cited the nine deaths that were listed in a November captive-bred wildlife permit application by Wildlife in Need owner Tim Stark. In requesting the permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Stark wrote that he wanted the license to “make acquisition of new species and specimens as simple and expedient as possible.”

I still can't side with the PETA people.

They tend to suffer from a condition I like to refer to as 'Analcephaly'.

But it's nice to know that something is being done.   :thumbsup:

I'm not a fan PETA either but they do know how to get world wide attention, and that is exactly what will happen. 

 

Local authorities have ignore the situation for too many years. 

 

I can see our elected officials on the national evening news saying "we had no idea"

Unless there are specific statutes in place, to prevent this, Mr. Stark is within his rights.  This is something that the state legislature

must address.

Not true, most counties have passed ordinances banning exotic animals. Floyd County did about 15 years ago. The City of Jeffersonville also has a ban on exotic animals. 

 

That is why the tigers are being bred in Clark County, because they can.

I confess, I was daunted going up against the USDA on their own turf.  But I am delighted to see that the ALJ  saw fit to see Wildlife in Need and Tim were in the right.  

 

Good decision.  Here's the story.

 

 

"Furthermore, the judge ruled, claims that Stark has harmed animals in his custody, including the ocelot, were not supported by evidence."

 

It was a good day for Tim and W.I.N.  I hope this helps people who have been doubting have a little faith and  maybe, just maybe,

re-think their views on this.

Some people will not see the writing or hear the words even if shoved in their face or screamed in their ears...they are ALWAYS right...regardless.

Peta stinks. They kill 95 to 98% of the animals they 'rescue'. They play to the public's heartstrings and sympathy all the while murdering behind our backs. I remember falling for their slick tactics of sad pictures at a flea market years ago and donated $20 I could ill afford while sobbing so hard I couldn't speak. I noticed the volunteer was somewhat cold and wondered about that. It was sometime later I learned what they truly are about. They are slowly being exposed, but not quickly enough. Truth be told they are against any pet ownership. Peta cannot go to Hades fast enough as far as I am concerned. They need to keep their noses and voices out of everything. Their reputation is in the toilet thanks to their past deeds, it holds no legitimacy.
