But it's good to see some of Singer's basic insights start to catch on. Or start to be conveyed to people via the media.

It was only a year or so back that some people from the Lower Hutt council, I think it was, went out with a gun and shot some chickens (I think a few hens) that were being a little too free-range by the road through town.

Recently we hear about some chickens being free range out by the library in West Auckland. Rooster. Baby chickens, even. Population expanding... They interviewed a few people . Interesting that the guys were both 'Get a gun, that'lll fix it. Or call Tegal'. The women were more... Anyway... They are trying to think about what to do... Netting them or something. To relocate them somewhere.

And of course it does seem silly in a sense that we are about the lives of these chickens and not the lives of the chickens who never even got to go outdoors who only know life in their battery cage... But that doesn't make violence the answer to the problem okay. It should instead get us rethinking our farming / animal research practices...

Of course it's not okay what happened to the pony.

And of course it's not okay what happened to the kid, either.

That's right. It's not okay.

I guess that's the idea. What he needed / wanted to hear. That it's not okay. Just to check that people were horrified. People are horrified -- right? The person who did that to the kid should have been locked up for a while? Right?

Just living out pathology...
