From Joe Etheridge - 10 Jan 2005

To whom it may concern,

Words cannot express my anger in regard to the senseless torture of any animal much less the ones that are depicted on your site. If I had the resources I would personally hunt down everyone/organization responsible for such atrocities and deal with them myself. Perhaps treating them with the same level of humanity as they have their furry captives.

I commend you for exposing these cases...and I think that we all should be mindful of what humans are truly capable of. I do not necessarily agree with radical organizations such as PETA. I feel that they have too much of an agenda...and tend to lose sight of what is truly important. Your site attacks the problems with the welfare of the animals in question...with pictures.

Photographs speak for themselves.

There are several areas where you and I do not see eye-to-eye. You have exposed Asian cultures for their cruelty toward animals...and rightfully so. However, your agenda becomes more prevalent as you equate the aforementioned acts with that of those that have occurred in the United States. I resent that. The United States is far from perfect. However, I think that it is safe to say that, compared to many other parts of the world, our veterinary medicine is second to none. With the exception of a few isolated
incidents, and research facilites, America loves animals.

That doesn't mean that you should cease
exposing of strange and unusual animal cruelty acts within the U.S. What it means is that if you are going to pursue crimes against humanity, you MUST attack the global community and not just select countries. I suggest you go check out our Canadian, see what kind of neat things they like to do to horses. So women won't have to suffer from "hot-flashes".

I would also like to take this time to inform you of a few "practices" that you may be unaware of. There are hunting areas in Texas (I'm sure there are others throughout the US and the world) where pheasants, chukar, and grouse are released for people to "hunt"
them. However, it is hardly considered hunting when the people who release these birds deliberately place blinders on them and break their legs. In many cases, these birds manage to survive the hunt...only to
suffer from a more miserable death later on. I am a hunter and a fisherman. However, I practice hunting and fishing with a great amount of respect for the animal I pursue. I understand that if I am to take an animals life, it is my duty and responsibility to replace it 200%...the animal receives the respect it
deserves and in mitigating it's population, the
species will continue to flourish. I support all
positive forms of conservation. However, I do not recognize kinship to those "sportsmen" who choose to purposely mutilate wild game in order to have an advantage.

If you would like to have more information in regard to this hunting cruelty, please contact me with interest, and I will try and find the locations and contact information of the aforementioned places.

Work the problem, don't manipulate the

Dear Joe:

Thank you very much for your letter and comments.

Actually, most of the animal exploitation photos that we have on our site, are from US farms where these atrocities are considered the norm.

We were happy to see your comments on canned hunting. We have started a section on the canned hunting of elk, who, for the most part, are quite tame. We have not heard of the practice of maiming birds, which we would very much like to learn more about, as well as getting some photos of canned bird hunting. If you can help us in this area, we'd very much appreciate it.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
