I have observed many, many times that these so called “advocates” create “bitch hunts” and then, like a pack of rabid dogs, target an individual and do so much damage to that persons reputation either through discriminatory language, vile character assassination, hate speech, whose once important thoughts, ideas and comments, common sense voices are “run out on a rail” and those voices are lost forever. This is the antithesis of advocacy.
Any advocate that would allow anyone to dominate the conversation through hate, disproportionate anger and inaccurate facts but instead allow these radical voices the ability to dominate the conversation about our Wild One’s and give any organization dead set on removing them from their rightful homes or further a agenda that will eventually cause the extinction of our beloveds must be silenced.
When you join forces with these destructive ideas and voices, it speaks volumes to those of us that form opinions about advocates who have been sensible in the past, and normally offered invaluable insight, opinions and ideas. In other words, it damages your credibility within our advocacy. Those of us that work tirelessly, day in and day out, will no longer trust your voice in this matter and will eventually cause your important thoughts and ideas to vanish as you will be ignored.
What you are about to read is exactly right on point and speaks to the egos of pro-slaughter, PZP proponents and their rhetoric. There must come a time when we speak as individuals, or as a group, and take what you need, discard the rest. For example, I no longer participate in groups, nor donate my time, or money to any group or organization that does not accept the science on PZP as clear and present danger to our wild horse/burro populations.
The science has clearly spoken, there is no overpopulation, that PZP will damage herds, mares and their foals permanently. It is just another scheme in order to profit, using our tax dollars to again to exploit these innocent animals to justify a budget for which there is clearly a nonissue.
Any solution that requires any form of damage or harm to family bonds, mares, foals, etc. should always be suspect…always. If you don’t have evidence, then your argument is moot. We have plenty of evidence to refute PZP, and the overpopulation myth. What you do with that information will most certainly determine the outcome of thousands of innocent lives that are the brink of extinction.
Decide to remove these corrupt voices from your realm of influence and take heed from those that have the evidence to back up their claims.
I love sheep, but care not to emulate them.
