A natural result of there being too many sentimental single young women working in the media.
Three family pets die in house fire
“Authorities said Sunday that a family escaped safely from flames that heavily damaged a Mount Pleasant house. However, a dog, a pet lizard and a turtle died in the fire, which is being investigated.”
Are they going to start telling us how many hogs & cattle were slaughtered, how many dogs & cats were euthanized, and how many research animals were killed at labs that day? At the National Animal Disease Center in Ames they do medical research on dogs. The dogs come in and they don’t go out. I am not thrilled about animals dying either, but animals are not people. Far from it.
Another thing I have noticed are “save the animals” ads on TV that look and sound just like the “save the children” ads that were/are on.
