Typical "Animal Rights" bunk.

I suppose it's a bit more defensible than setting all the horses free but there is this underlying sentiment that living a short hard life and dying painfully while being "free" is clearly and unimpeachable preferable to being taken care of and loved. I don't buy it. But that's what animal rights really preaches.

Definitly made by someone who has never had any experience withas well kept pet parrot. I am old enough to remember when most people still thought all dogs belonged outdoors not in the house. Times do change and so can people and their thoughts. Lets hope these people become better educated.
