President Obama swatted and killed a fly on television, and PETA is upset about it. In case you think I’m making this up, here is the link from MSNBC. Let me quote:
PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.
“We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals,” PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. “We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals.”
I’m all for the ethical treatment of animals, but not insects, and especially flies. This is truly unbelievable. I wonder what their position is on mosquitos. Anybody know?
