Not so fast, FReepers.

This is the same doofus that gave 2.5 million bucks to PETA.

He ain’t all there.

That makes up for him letting Sea Shepherd name one of their whaling harassment ships after him.

“And don’t forget, please spay or neuter your hippies.”

Yeah, he also took the elephant away from the Anchorage Zoo.

This was a good act for the Semper Fi Fund. But he is a nut.

Good lord, are we never just thankful...........A man does a good deed with HIS OWN MONEY, and yet some one has to bitch.

He paid out of his pocket to get the animal moved to a more suitable climate - good for him.

BTW - Bob served as a Marine fighter pilot in WWII, then served as a test pilot.

He has his own axe to grind, but does at least he grids it with own dough!

OO-rah.

He doesn’t want to get Marines spayed or neutered does he?

Good Reference....but the “happy zone” vision with the lingerie clad babe holding two mugs of beer was.....oh, never mind.

This was a good act, but he is not one I will ever admire.

He gave more to fight whaling, I guess he views them more important than vets.

http://www.seashepherd.org/news-and-media/news-100105-1.html

He has gone after other smaller venues of animals like Edmonton, but Polar Bears in LA, California are never mentioned by him.

I thought his slams of the Anchorage Zoo were very undeserved and he will always have a blackmark from me.

Or that Vets have the chance to speak for themselves.

What’s your take on the whale killing by North Slope NAtives? Is that OK?

I am not a “promoter” of whale killing, but if they are not an endangered species, and they are eating the meat, I don't have a problem with it.

I always felt the protest to oil exploration was disingenuous. Don't disturb the whales, we are trying to kill them. We want to preserve our heritage, using petroleum fueled boats and explosive harpoons.

Bob Barker was not, I repeat not a Marine!

He was a junior officer in the U. S. Navy and trained to fly Corsairs. The war ended before he went to sea.
He served post-war as a naval aviator in the United States Naval Reserve until circa 1960.
