THE INDIANA DNR HAS POSTED IN INDIANA NEWSPAPERS THAT IT IS OPEN SEASON ON SQUIRRELS FOR A PRICE…
selling licenses which are pretty pricey and at reduced prices to the youth also….just read an article tonight… squirrels? has bloodlust gotten that “nuts”? has money-grubbing become that outrageously flagrant? shameful…actually frightening.
Kamini Christina Merner: “Whoever kills an animal for fun or in the name of ‘sport’ destroys their own humanity.”
absolutely, kamini…such a growing list of those…hopefully a longer list of those of us who stop them.
Judy Kramer: “They’d have a ‘field day’ at my house. I feed them so I have quite a few at my place. Better NOT – don’t tote a gun but have a ‘big mouth’. Where do these people come from – unbelievable!!??”
D=dimwitted and N=nutjobs and R=Run Amok!
and now otters?!? in yesterday’s newspaper: “The state of Indiana is proposing a limited trapping season for river otters and to allow for the sale of river otter furs less than 20 years after the animals were reintroduced after becoming extinct in Indiana.” horrific.
this state is so backward…an embarrassment…
so they are advertising license “sales” for killing 5 squirrels per day……a “nutty” amount of money…and a bit less for YOUNGSTERS. and now this otter business?!?
wondering why anything involving the DNR seems not to get attention. they are like a cash register…cha chinging…what can we sell for mass slaughter of something or other today…licenses and guns and hunting gear…cha ching…I cannot stand the DNR either…lots of relatives of relatives employed there…becoming so red-neck in hoosierville…what is up with that…
and our paper publishes slaughtered animals or animals being led to slaughter constantly…year round…cycles…4-H, turkey slaughter…deer slaughter…”feeshing” ! enough already…year after year after year.
thanks for this feedback!
