He or she who is not able to or refuses to control his or her pet/s in the yard could very well be deemed inhumane. In a typically congested suburban environment, small, furry, four-legged creatures can hardly be expected to fend for themselves.
Their so-called pet parents do need to take regular stock of their everyday movements, ensuring that they are kept out of harm’s reach. And at the same time, such vulnerable creatures also need to be prevented from infringing on the territories of those who do not wish to have these unnecessarily invaded.
Sad to say that it could very well have happened that local animal control kalamazoo mi services may have been called upon to remove such animals from the properties of irate others.
Fortunately, all may not be lost. Animal control services can be humanely administered. Those who unwittingly or deliberately abuse ‘their’ pet creatures are quickly taken to task. Regretfully however, penalties meted out by local authorities do not appear to go far enough in getting the message out that cruelty towards animals (in general) whether wanton or deliberate remains intolerable.
Those who tend to live or operate alongside of or close to natural belts could consider themselves to be privileged.
They are close to nature. But perhaps it is understandable that most folks are not in a position to appreciate this fully.
The problem has to do with animals from natural surroundings invading properties and causing all forms of inconvenience or havoc.
For smallholding owners and small-scale farmers, this has remained a pertinent problem since time immemorial. Farmers in general have obliged themselves to be trigger-happy in the purpose of securing their properties and its stock.
But no animal needs to die just as long as animal control treatment remains humane.
