    cute fluffy animals with big eyes and always a happy ending.

    When you go to their page and see cute stuffed polar teddy bears on top of photos of two large real ones (very white and clean nary a drop of blood to be seen) seemingly dancing in the snow, and you are asked to "adopt" a wild animal for Valentines day this is what you get. One more made up story for the clueless.

    Do you know what happens to raccoons captured in have-a-heart traps and released unharmed in the wild? They are torn apart and eaten alive by coyotes who are used to the exterminator dropping off fat garbage fed racoons at the same place all the time. The racoon doesn't even know where it is or where to hide. They rip out the guts and it takes a while to be fatal. Raccoons can scream very loudly, I know, I've heard them.

    Nothing is as harmful and dangerous to wildlife as animal rights people. All those horses suffering as I write. Left to starve and therefore freeze to death in CO, UT, WY. Too big for any living predator in NA.

    I could go on and on. At least Animal Planet only abuses a few animals.
