Subtitles are the best part II
The police just came to my door and gave me the worst news of my life. My baby was euthanized today. They told me they had no information on the person who was “bitten”. All they acted on was a picture sent to them. My baby is gone because someone didn’t like us having him.
We won’t be on tumblr, possibly ever again.
Reading this made me sick to my stomach. I’m so sorry for your loss.
Jesus, I’m speechless
It was a pet FOX, a wild animal.
Get over it
maybe you should keep your ignorant, mis informed, extremely inappropriate comments to your fucking self in a time when someone is grieving. you know virtually NOTHING about this fucking fox or his family or whether or not he was wild. go to his fucking blog and go through it and then have the audacity to open your big fucking mouth with the garbage you just spewed out. the type of person that you are is part of the issue and could potentially be the person who called in the false claim which got this fucking beloved PET/COMPANION fox killed. please go onto youtube and search for pet fox videos and just TRY to explain how these are fucking wild vicious animals.
you are a literal piece of shit. I hope you realize that you lack any kind of compassion whatsoever. this family has been unjustly devastated and had one of the most important parts of their lives taken away with NO proof and within a 24 hour time span told that he was killed without them even knowing it was going to happen. how about you go lose a fucking limb or two or maybe a family member and then post about how fucking traumatized/sad you are, so we can tell you how you were at fault for it happening and to just get over it. how do people like you even exist?
ITS A FUCKING FOX!!! Officer noo my alligator is harmless. All of y’all are fuckin idiots, it’s a wild animal as in you can’t walk into petco and say I want a fuckin fox. You people are the types of people who end up on the discovery channel killed by exotic pets and all that bs. No sympathy no compassion. It’s a wild animal that belonged in the wild. Not eating Scooby snacks off the dinner table. Losing a pet fucking fox is nowhere close to losing a family member or a fuckin limb, I love my limbs because they’re domesticated as well as my family members unlike a fucking FOX. You idiots have nothing to do but to cry over a fucking fox. It probably would’ve lived longer if it was left in the wild, let that sink in BITCH!
I have to point out a few flaws in your reply. One, the fox was indeed NOT wild because he is descended from Ranch Foxes. Ranch Foxes have been captive bred for fur production close to over a 100 years now. As you can tell by his traits physically and mentally (silver fur, ability to thrive in a pet like setting, social to dogs, displaying dog like tail signs and can be handled on a daily basis), he is not wild. I have dealt with wild animals before and none could become to capable as Vader was. Vader is the result of numerous generations of breeding foxes in captivity. If you had any knowledge on genetics, you’d know that in time, captive bred generations become calmer, more willing to be handled, display various colour morphs, have a willingness to human companionship and may be social towards other animals (as Vader was to the other dog). A wild fox would display none of these, as wild foxes are shy of humans and other animals, even if they were worked and imprinted on as kits. Vader’s parents were social. His grand parents social. His great grand parents social an so on and so forth. However his founding ancestors to the original ranch stocks were wild, bitey and untouchable and selective breeding has gotten rid of such traits. Therefore Vader does not equal a wild vicious animal as you claim. This is basic genetics really, but judging by your vulgarity and odd (maybe even suspicious) rage, you don’t understand animals or genetics. Compare a fox kit taken from two wild parents (say an orphan) and compare it to a ranch fox kit with decades of selective breeding and you will see a massive difference in temperament and ability to be handled. Your claims on this fox being wild is actually quite ridiculous, knowing that you have no real research or knowledge on things you’re only assuming, not knowing.
Two, she actually had approval from the USDA to transport the fox into her area. The city of Minot has a zoning rule in one location of the city, and the red colour of the species Vulpes Vulpes (aka red fox) is not allowed, however, while Vader is Vulpes Vulpes, he is not the red colour (wild colour) phase. He is silver. Therefore he is not illegal and a permit is not needed for a ranch coloured fox in this area. All that is needed for her was a health certificate from the USDA, which the owners have. Yeah, she committed a Zoning Violation perhaps, but these violations usually allow you to relocate or move the animal and you pay a small fine (I know this because my neighbors have this happen all the time). A man in my town (lives near me down the road) ~illegally~ keeps donkey’s and peacocks in his backyard and he gets fined when he gets reported for it (yet he is allowed to keep his animals and is told to simply relocate them). Vader’s case on the other hand, is indeed obvious misuse of the law’s power. If I am correct, Tara was told she would be able to get her fox back, however, the next day, only his collar was delivered to her door and notified of his death without being allowed to see him. There was no due process and the police acted on a false report (false reports are punishable by law) without evidence or medical records of the so called victim. While a fox is considered a vector species for the most part, it’s usually red morphs (wild colour) that are considered as vectors while ranches in legal areas are classified as “Generally Domestic”. The officer mishandled Vader despite being warned numerous times not to mishandle him. Any mishandled animal, wild, tame, or domestic, is going to bite out of defense. Animal Control is supposed to handle these sort of issues, using catch poles and/or cage traps to protect the animal and themselves. The cop had no place to act out as he did, as what he did should have been left for those who are professionals in properly handling animals. I’ve personally had reports on my own dogs (none for bites but rather I have one dog that likes to lunge at the fence when people peer over) and the cop even stated to me she is not authorized to touch my animal in any way and if animal control comes, they will be the ones doing so. So yes, the cop did abuse his power in this manner. Another case was my now gone neighbors had very aggressive and protective dogs that almost bit a girl getting off with me from the bus and her father called the police. They told him they were not able to handle these animals and advised to call animal control instead.
Fucking yes to the comment above.
i want a pet like this !!! (:
Friendly reminder that the exotic pet trade for the slow loris leads to a lot of abuse prior to the owner buying it. More often than not, the mother is killed for a baby to be obtained. The slow loris is also venomous (or poisonous, it’s up for debate) so they have their teeth painfully removed to make them ‘safe’ for human ownership. Also, since they’re nocturnal, regular daylight is blinding and painful for them to deal with.
Here’s a link that describes the cruelty behind owning a slow loris: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2089550/YouTube-sensation-slow-loris-look-adorable-kill-humans.html
Videos like this may seem harmless but they contribute to the abuse and ignorance brought about by the exotic pet trade. Please educate yourself before falling for these cute animal videos. Sometimes there’s more to it than just a cute video.
"…With genuine platonic love, the beautiful or lovely other person inspires the mind and the soul and directs one’s attention to spiritual things. Socrates, in Plato’s "Symposium", explained two types of love or Eros—Vulgar Eros or earthly love and Divine Eros or divine love. Vulgar Eros is nothing but mere material attraction towards a beautiful body for physical pleasure and reproduction. Divine Eros begins the journey from physical attraction i.e. attraction towards beautiful form or body but transcends gradually to love for Supreme Beauty. This concept of Divine Eros is later transformed into the term Platonic love."
Recently my grandmother found out I’m queer. Her response was to tell me that she disapproves of me living with my “friend” (i.e. my girlfriend) and that I should give up my vile queer ways and become a Christian (Lol). She even sent me a bible. Here are its remains, which I made into black-out poetry.
Poem 1: Bisexual (from Leviticus 19:9)— “Have sexual relations with her. Have sexual relations with him. Have sexual relations with both a woman and a man. Have sexual relations with yourself. Vomit on everyone who does not respect you.”
Poem 2: Fisting (from Judges 8:5)— “water/ lap the water/ drink/go down to drink/your hands/go down/I give into your hands/go down/encouraged/down/on the seashore/the whole hand/your hand/inside/I get to the edge/and shout/grasping/crying out/Beth/Beth/Beth/Beth/Beth/God/I came”
Poem 3: A Letter to the Exiles (from Jeremiah 28:13) — “Ze said: ‘Do not let lies name you, nor harm your heart. Gather. Raise the sword against them. They scorn and reproach, for they have not listened— again and again have not listened.’ “
Poem 4: Child (from Ezekiel 16:22) — “Your father and your mother rubbed salt in. No one looked on you with pity or had compassion enough for you, for on the day you were born you were despised. Live! Grow. I looked at you and saw you were enough.”
Poem 5: Father (from Ezekiel 16:22) — “You never adored us. You became very angry. You took some out on us. Your sons and daughters were not enough? You slaughtered— in all your detestable practices— our youth.”
Poem 6: Misandry (from Acts 27:41) — “Dangerous men should be broken.”
