Someone needs to be held accountable for killing a
playful animal who had harmed no one and had a perfect RIGHT to live in
On Nov. 15 the Journal News and many other news sources carried a
story about a friendly elk in Tennessee who was photographed playing
with the photographer:
This animal has been murdered by park staff - for 'not being
fearful' of humans. So now they're killing HARMLESS animals because
they are 'not afraid.' Of course they 'couldn't relocate' him (and why
should he be 'relocated' anyway??) which is just like the
Staten Island turkeys who the USDA calls 'hybrid' so they 'can't be
relocated - but must be killed instead. These agencies make this stuff
up as they go along,because they make money from killing animals, and
complaints must be filed.
This has got to stop: The poor photographer says he now wishes his
famous pictures never happened.
"All the joy is gone. No one got
hurt so it was a fun ride. I know the attention contributed to the
animal being put down and I wish it had never happened," he said.
