I stopped finding that entertaining years ago. So the ASPCA will have to pay for using so called "unethical" tactics. When is Ringling Bros going to have to pay for the blatantly unethical tactics they use against their animals?

The ringling brothers case was interesting if i remember correctly because the "paid witness" was being paid by HSUS to get a job there, and then manufacture the abuse and videotape it. The whole time the guy was abusing the animal and taping it he was being paid by either HSUS or ASPCA to further their agenda.

So you have to seriously wonder if this crap you are siting on these u-tubes are actual abuse by Ringling Brothers, or a complete and total set up.

The court system did not award them 9.3 million without there having been some serious wrong-doing on the part of the ASPCA.

I agree, give to your local shelter.
