Pet Shop Arson Kills Pets
If it's true that people associated with the animal-rights movement did this, they should go to jail. What could possibly be the point of killing animals in the name of protecting them? Did whoever set the fire not understand that this would happen? It's worse than that act of total stupidity in 1998 by British activists who "liberated" 6,500 minks, which then skittered around the countryside devouring housepets, farm animals, and wild birds. This is a popular tactic that always results in loss of life, either the minks' or other animals'. Has it stopped fur-coat production? Not a chance. Fur is hotter than ever as a fashion item.
Guerilla tactics that result in animal deaths are counterproductive to the cause. Activists would do far better to educate the public about why wearing fur isn't necessary and why it makes more sense to get a shelter pet than one from a store.
