Animal Rights = Bloody Murder!

New York Tail Docking Ban Will Murder
Thousands Of Dogs That Can’t Comply

ALBANY, NY – Legislation to criminalize docking puppies’ tails is a case study in mercy – animal rights style! It will result in tens of thousands of dead dogs in the first year alone, because there will be no way to allow them to stay alive in the face of criminal charges against anyone who owns them.

The animal rights movement is all about killing animals, either literally right now or gradually, through attrition by sterilization. Every piece of animal rights legislation boils down to dead dogs, which groups like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals call mercy killings. PETA, which butchers about 90-percent of the dogs that enter its “shelter” in Norfolk, VA, believes that dogs are better off dead than exploited and enslaved by loving homes.

The Humane Society of the United States uses gentler rhetoric, but also creates and supports model legislation that will result in the death of thousands of animals, such as the proposed New York tail docking ban, and supports animal shelter policies that directly result in millions of unnecessary deaths by euthanasia.

The New York legislation is perhaps the clearest illustration yet of the true goals of HSUS and the rest of the animal rights movement.

AB 7218, which is before the Assembly Agriculture Committee, says that anyone who docks a puppy’s tail, or has someone else perform the procedure, is guilty of a criminal misdemeanor punishable by a $500 fine. Not even veterinarians would be allowed to dock a dog’s tail, except to save its life or for a health emergency.

The legislation also enables any New York animal rights group to act as vigilantes, hunt down violators, and petition the court to prosecute someone whose dog has a docked tail.

In addition, anyone who shows or exhibits a dog with a docked tail, or even attends a show or exhibition where dogs with docked tails are present, is guilty of a misdemeanor and faces a $500 fine.

Those provisions translate directly into dead dogs, by the truckload.

Here’s how:
