Devaluing The Companion Animal — 3 Comments

  1. Hi Michael,

    Just when I thought I heard every possible offensive abuse of animals…

    But you’re right – I’m not surprised to read about it.

    Glad you brought it to light because it needs publicity to generate outrage.

    It also demands discussion.

    Brilliant point – the more the number the less humans value it. Diamond companies stash diamonds in a vault to mimic scarcity. This drives up the perceived value of diamonds.

    The cat thing on that island is the reverse. The greater the numbers, the less value the cats have. Then people think of them as worms and use them as fishing bait.

    Sad but true.

    As you said “Devalued”.

    Awareness is important.

    Raising the dilemma is the first step. Second step is outrage. Third step is solution – provided it has high priority.

    Even so, we could settle for being hypothetical about the solution.

    What can be done?

    • What can be done? We can hope and expect the French government and government agencies get involved and stop it.

      Réunion is a French island so the government in France should get involved and set some standards.

      Clearly they have not been involved because of the slack approach to cat and dog ownership and caretaking.

      The French has a pretty good reputation regarding animal welfare. Let’s hope they step in and sort this out.

      It would appear to be a criminal act under French animal welfare laws. Where are the French?

  2. Ok I won’t freak out here in words then 🙂 Let’s just say it would be nice to have alot of money and a big huge team of animal loving highly trained commandos and be able to show up in places around the world – like this place – and don’t the same thing to them, whatever it is they are doing to the animals. A bit like a meaner version of superman or something.
