“Animal Defence League” you ever heard of them??
No, me neither, but evidently their mandate includes the protection of rats – a mangy rodent notorious for its ability to carry disease and responsible for spreading the Black Plague.
According to CFRA Radio:
A woman walking along Laurier Avenue outside the park says, “I think they should leave the rats.” She argues that — as long as they don’t hurt anybody, destroying the park or going into garbage bins, why should they be hurt?
The Animal Defence League has a 3pm protest planned to oppose the placement of rat poison in Confederation Park.
Their news release says “rats are playful, love to be tickled and make chirping noises that sound like laughter”.
“Rats are playful” – give me a break, I mean, Russell Williams was probably playful too as a boy, and looked how he turned out – the filthiest scumbag rat of them all!!
Ok, is it just me or has everyone in the City gone mad??
I invite any member of the Animal Defence League out there to please explain their stance for me, because obviously I’m not picking up what they’re putting down!
Come on people, these are rats we’re talking about!!
