PETA at work

PETA is demanding the Feds investigate the deaths of two bison during recent flooding at Hershey Park's Zoo America.

PETA says Zoo America staff did not take adequate precautions to ensure the bison would be safe, prior to the flood.

"It's upsetting to imagine the terror that these two animals experienced, having no way to escape as the water engulfed them," said PETA's Delcianna Winders.

Numerous people drowned or were otherwise killed, during the flood caused by the remnants of Hurricane Lee hitting much of eastern PA and other areas. I would imagine numerous animals, either pets or livestock, also succumbed to flood waters? Not to mention approximately 40,000 pheasants at PGC's Loyalsock Game Farm.

Difference? There was near-saturation pictorial coverage of the two bison at Hershey, thanks to area TV stations. And plenty of televised interviews with distraught viewers, upset that the bison died.

PETA: Some of the same animal rights people that are dedicated to ending all recreational hunting and trapping, folks. And they never pass up a golden opportunity to grab some press time, or exploit public attention. Especially when one like this comes along.

ROFL! Just had a conversation with a feller who raises "buffaloes", on Saturday.

He was also upset that the zoo people didn't save 'em at Hershey, but I related some stories my uncle told me years ago, about another farmer down the valley from camp, that tried to keep them.

The farmer finally gave up, when he couldn't find a fencing solution to keep them from running off whenever the mood struck them. He now just monkeys with Beefaloes, instead. Even they were a handful, before he went with high tensile fencing and electrified wires on the inside.

From what I have heard, bison are not the easiest things to handle under any circumstances.

Re: PETA at work

Got no use for PETA or HSUS. They're just a bunch of whack jobs who havent got a clue and dont care to be educated as to what life is really about.

Bison steaks, of course!

Re: PETA at work

They were shot by the zoo because they could get them out of an enclosure that was flooding.
