Crating is a popular "convenience practice" that is often used on adult dogs. The inappropriate practice deprives dogs of the opportunity to fulfill some of their most basic needs, such as the freedom to walk around, the chance to relieve themselves, and the comfort of stretching out to relax. Crating began as a convenience for people who participate in "dog shows" to keep their dogs clean, but they did not take into account their dogs' social, physical, and psychological requirements. Dogs are highly social pack animals who abhor isolation and crave and deserve companionship, praise, and exercise. Forcing dogs to spend extended periods of time confined and isolated simply to accommodate their guardians' schedule is unacceptable.

From the article "What if I get pregnant?" she responds with "pop out all the kids you can" and says, "If it has a pulse, you should be wrapped around it!"

People don't use pets to make clothes. That's what chinchilla farms are for. What's your farking point PETA?

I crated my dog when she was little and she came out just fine.

Watched the spot. The "If it has a pulse, you should be wrapped around it!" line is referring to their daughter wrapping a bit of her anatomy around the particular anatomy of a male. I particularly like the end when the mom excitedly hugs her "My little girl's going to get some!"

How would you like to be put in a cage? Maybe we should shackle you in a Laotian prison camp for years on end before the starving guards finally decide to dispose of you.

And as far as your caging goes:

Studies have shown that long-term confinement is detrimental to the physical and psychological well-being of animals. Animals caged for extended periods can develop eating disorders and anti-social and/or aggressive behaviors, or they can become withdrawn, hyperactive, or severely depressed. When there are so many other alternatives, why should we subject our canine companions to a training method that is obviously not in their best interests?

Valdes My dogs are kennel trained, because we move alot. On a recent move from Germany, they were in the kennels 17 hours straight. It was awful, but they were fine, b/c they like their "rooms". Some of them choose to sleep in their kennels, with the door open, rather than on the bed, couch..whatever.

A friend didn't kennel her dog when we went to the zoo one day. She got home and found the dog dead in a pile of trash in the kitchen. He'd obviously eaten something he shouldn't have. Her trash was kept under the sink, with a "childproof" latch on it. He ate part of the cabinet door.

I don't agree with leaving the dogs in a kennel all day, but sometimes it's a better alternative.

Yeah. Yeah 'cause my dog's crate (where she would spend 10 hrs, tops) is akin to the hotbox. Dramatic much? And how would like it if, while you were at work, I came to your house and pissed on your rug? As far as all of your hypotheticals go sure, a dog can have any of those things happen. Mine didn't. She's healthy as a horse. I understand you've got good intentions here but...

Maybe you would like it if someone caged you too, while they moved around "a lot"

You are doing nothing but proving me correct. You and your friend could have stopped this senseless suffering, but you didn't.

Then what? Torturing them with acid?

///She can tree hell out of a coon too. Two legged or four legged.

Christ. There is no need to be a bigot. What kind of inbred are you? The kind with a straight line family tree? No branches? That kind of thinking is soooooo 19th century. And not even the tail end of that century.

Some people have suggested that the solution to companion animal overpopulation lies with so-called "no-kill," or "limited-admission," shelters. Sadly, these facilities often have major problems that affect animals. Animals at "no-kill" shelters who have been deemed unadoptable may be "warehoused" in cages for years. They become withdrawn, severely depressed, or aggressive, which further decreases their chances for adoption. Cageless facilities avoid the cruelty of constant confinement but unintentionally encourage fighting and the spread of disease among animals.
 
2008-01-15 05:24:36 PM  
Militant PETA-ers are yes indeedy Tom Cruise crazy, but I also agree with the spay & neuter programs.

And there are better ways to help unfortunate animals than by telling people who DO love and care for them what pondscum they are. Great way to help spread the love.

Valdes: Horrific fates await most homeless cats-they do not die of old age. If you have a cat at home, you know that veterinary care is a necessity. Cats get heart disease, leukemia, bladder problems, ear infections, and more. Imagine if your cat were outdoors and you did not know that he or she was in trouble, or imagine if, upon seeing an obvious symptom, you could not catch your cat to provide treatment. Contagious diseases such as rhinotrachitis, feline AIDS, and rabies are common in "outdoor cats," who also sustain puncture wounds, broken bones, and brain damage or lose eyes or limbs after they are attacked by other animals or hit by cars. During winter months, automobile engine fans slice through cats who seek shelter from the cold under a car hood. If cats escape these perils, they may still fall prey to agonizing deaths at the hands of cruel people. Our office is flooded with calls about cruelty to animals every day because across the country, free-roaming cats are mutilated, shot, drowned, poisoned, beaten, set on fire, used in ritual sacrifice, stolen by "bunchers" for medical experimentation, or used by dogfighters as "bait."

Hey Valdes, you know in the Lion King, where they all sang the "Circle of Life"?

It was bullsh*t.

Non-domesticated animals don't live in some wilderness paradise. They get ripped apart by predators, eaten alive, fall off cliffs, die from exposure, die lingering deaths from infection of untreated injuries, starve to death because their teeth rotted away, starve to death because an injury leaves them unable to hunt, get killed by members of their own species, die from untreated diseases, and so on.

I don't know what kind of happy-clappy loving-nature druidy green-mother-earth Gaia load of crap you think this world is, but I fail to see how domesticated cats and dogs are worse off than their wild relations. They live longer for one thing. How many wolf pups make it to adulthood?

and dogs often have to drink water that has sat around for days, are hurried along on their walks, and are yelled at to get off the furniture or be quiet.

Dogs like to be disciplined. They live to please us. The Dog Whisperer told me.

And is PETA now saying that pet owners don't flush their toilets?

Truly the only humane method of animal welfare is to incorporate them into a nice meal. To prolong their suffering by caging them or neutering them is an inhumane torture. A more compassionate method of animal welfare is to harvest them quickly and humanely, as God intended. Felines and canines are excellent additions to virtually any stir fry meal, but can be incorporated into almost any variation of Asian cuisine.

Valdes: Like dogs and small children, cats who are let outdoors without supervision are vulnerable to the dangers of cars, other animals, cruel people, and diseases-in addition to a dramatically lowered life expectancy, there is an increased risk of disease. Feline leukemia, feline AIDS (FIV), feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), toxoplasmosis, distemper, heartworms, and rabies can be difficult to detect and, in the case of FIP and distemper, impossible to test for; they are also highly contagious and can easily be passed on to other animal companions.

Many people consider free-roaming cats to be pests. They do not want cats to urinate, defecate, dig, eat plants, or kill birds on their property. Across the country, free-roaming cats are shot, poisoned, and stolen by angry neighbors. They are also mutilated, drowned, beaten, set on fire, used in ritual sacrifice, stolen by "bunchers" for medical experimentation, or used by dogfighters as "bait."

What the hell is your point? Its an animal. I dont have to care if it suffers because its not human. Cats get eaten by lots of stuff - we lived on a farm and ou cats lived outside. We never got them spayed or neutered. Why? because paying 300 dollars for something that would eventually become coyote food was a stupid idea. The cats would lay about 5 kittens a year - by the time winter was over we were back to the same number of cats. Want something to biatch about? How about mooses with mange - they are wild and they die in HORRIBLE ways. Like getting caught in fences and starving, or jumping off of bridges. Stuff dies - people die - animals die. Just because something is alive doesnt mean its life has any moral value. Human efforts brought those animals into the world and its our choice to allow them to live. Instead of neutering cats how about i just kick them more often?


\I save my compassion for other things that can feel compassion. You know, like people.
\BTW way to go undermining the suffering of Vietnam's torture victims asshole. I bet the POW's really apreaciate their plight being compared to crating a dog for a half of a day.
