Unintended Consequences

Lovely how new laws always seem to have these unintended consequences, isn’t it? So a circus can no longer have exotic animals. So those that do have them will have to shoot them.

Bbbbbbut wait! Surely they can go to retirement homes and the like?

Jan Creamer, chief executive of the group Animal Defenders International (ADI), said: "It is nonsense to suggest that the animals will all be shot. All the wild animals can be re-homed in sanctuaries or other more appropriate facilities,

Quite. And the last few words from Ms. (?) Creamer?

which Britain doesn't have."

So they will have to be shot. Well done, a striking blow for animal rights there. In order not to be exploited you must die.

Maybe send them to Loch Ness circus animals' retirement reserve? http://www.theregister.com/2006/03/07/nessie_claim/

>>In order not to be exploited you must die<<

Sounds rather like a revolutionary communist tyranny to me.
