Comment of the Day: Randy Grim Needs to Grow the #@%$ Up!

Posted By on Tue, Jul 26, 2011 at 4:28 PM

Today's comment comes in response to Dog Daze: Randy Grim Unleashed, detailing the pissing match between Grim's Stray Rescue and several St. Louis aldermen. At issue is $250,000 in funds that Grim thinks belongs to his agency now that it has become the city's default animal shelter.

Meanwhile, aldermen like Quincy Troupe has not-so-subtly suggested that the city just kill stray dogs and spend the quarter-million dollars on helping people.

Commenter PetsorUs, squarely sides with Troupe in writing...
Grim and people like him are infantile. They have an inappropriate relationship with animals and allow their emotions regarding animals to influence their judgement about what should be excellent solutions (spay, neuter, euthanize) to long-standing problems. Animals are not people. They do not have human rights and should not have human rights. All animals that are not wild SERVE A PURPOSE...that is the reason why they were domesticated in the first place. It always makes me laugh that people haven't the slightest care for the billions of animals slaughtered each year entering the human food supply because that is their "purpose", but treat the big-eyed furry animals in our homes as near-equals. These are attitudes held by people that watched too many Disney movies as children and it is disgusting.
