You can feel safer today knowing that a no-kill animal shelter in Wisconsin was recently raided by a group of 13 heavily armed agents of the government. They were there to get Giggles, an illegally rescued baby deer. A shelter worker said the agents descended on the property like a swat team and soon the deer was being carried off in a body bag. Giggles is dead now and the world is somehow a better place thanks to our government helpers. Speaking of killing things, the logging industry in the western states was mostly killed by an environmental movement in the 80′s and 90′s. We were told that spotted owls were in decline and the only solution was to decimate the logging industry. Lumber mills closed. Logging towns died. But spotted owl populations declined anyway. It was later discovered that spotted owls were actually declining for another reason. A competitive species, the barred owl, was winning the competition for territory. This is called natural selection and has been part of the natural world from the beginning of time. But environmentalists like one owl more than the other, so there is a huge government effort to kill or remove approximately 3,600 barred owls. They are going in with guns. SNIP Can you think of any reason not to tackle big jobs like that? Think of what we are doing to correct the earths climate. Over the course of time, our planet has been much cooler and much hotter. It has had much higher CO2 concentrations and much lower. It has seen many ice ages with periods of warming in between. The ocean level has been much higher and much lower, many times. SNIP

People are basically unwilling to open their eyes to how much power the State has usurped from its citizens, in the past four decades, in America. Reluctant citizens, and de-facto subjects to an invisible behemoth of an entity. All-listening, too.
Do they mention the the deer was from an area infested with chronic wasting disease, and the little miss treehugger was going break quarantine and send it to an area free of the disease?
Does Australia still quarantine dogs?
Would you like some more bunnies?
G’day! I’m an aussie too, been around here since 2003, and can’t believe what I’m seeing. Here’s hoping I’m six foot under before we see such antics in our fair country. I wouldn’t trade places with an American for all the iron ore in West Australia.
And they had to send an army?
I moved to North Bend, Oregon in 1986. It had been hit hard by the general economic slump, but was clawing its way out. There were 8-10 working lumber mills and the shipping channel was a busy freeway of ships with cargoes of cut lumber, raw logs and wood chips. The spotted owl was declared endangered in 1990. By end of the decade there was one working lumber mill (cutting metric lumber) and one wood chip mill. Ship traffic became an oddity rather than an every day scene. This scenario was repeated throughout southern Oregon as good men lost good paying jobs all because of an erroneous “study” - paid for, no doubt, by a government grant. Thanks, EPA, for all you did and continue to do.
Nope, as far as I know.
A couple polite guys in uniform should have sufficed
OTOH, little miss treehugger has a pretty long record of radical disobedience.
Perhaps a local might be willing to give some insight.
13 HEAVILY ARMED AGENTS!
Couldn’t they have quarantined the fawn until they were certain it was disease free and then taken it to the preserve it was going to go to? If it had the CWD, I could see it being euthanized, but just to kill it outright without testing for it? Why did they have to kill it right off the bat? Because they were the same type of vermin as the cops who shoot dogs for no reason.
CWD is know to have an incubation period of up to 16 months. Every time giggles peed or pooped she’d be contaminating the soil, every tick, every flea risks further spread.
The state is looking at the possibility of having to utterly wipe out existing herds and wait years for the soil to decontaminate before restocking. NO ONE wants to do that. It would be devastating to the ecosystem and the economy, but they may be left with no choice to avoid even worse problems.
Little miss treehugger wanted to export the possibly infected deer to a clean state.
Some local bickering, accusations etc, it sounds like she’s taken on an ungrateful task. There’s nothing there that suggests she’s a DANGEROUS individual that warranted a visit by 13 heavily armed men.
Where does it say that? And why the need to call a woman who seems to be obsessed with animal rescue, a tree hugger?
Did you notice the sub heading?
WISHFUL THINKING DOES NOT CHANGE REALITY
In the 1860’s the city fathers of San Fransisco tried to wish away a plague outbreak in Chinatown.
Now any American anywhere in the western US can catch plague from the local wildlife.
A few rat traps, cleaning up the street garbage and the problem would have been nipped in the bud.
I guess if the Chinese name for “rat” translated to “giggles” you would have been on their side.
Is rabies much of a problem where you live?
.... Seattle officials recently banned the potentially offensive word citizen from all public documents. Campus speech codes limit language to officially approved words. Young children are being expelled from school for making a gun shape with their hand or making a gun shape with a school pastry. Officials dictate the appropriate size of soft drinks . Government publications tell farmers how to milk cows. We have seen crackdowns on lemonade stands and girl scout cookie stands and happy meal toys. Food inspectors are checking childrens lunch bags to see if the contents meet USDA requirements. Everywhere we turn, helpful government officials are managing our lives.
If you think these pretentious do-gooders are making the world a better place, here is my response: Giggles.
And it's all happening in the LAND OF THE FREE AND THE BRAVE and they haven't even noticed!
Not so funny after all, eh Giggles...
Ecocidal maniac doesn't quite capture it either.
Do you think moving breeding stock of killer bees to the New World was a good idea?
How about bunnies to Australia?
Would you have allowed them to salvage the cargoes of the plague ships in Messina?
With your reaction, I’m amazed the army didn’t blast her and her house into kingdom come. Paranoid much?
We are in a police state, too many state and federal agencies (including the US Dept of Education of all departments) are heavily armed. Denial and naivety of what has happened to our country is detrimental to us all.
