I am much more troubled by the 400-500+ animals which are killed *every month* 
here in Tallahassee alone by the Humane Society -- simply because there aren't 
enough dollars to take care of them (or people willing to adopt them as pets). 
The number of animals needlessly slaughtered in this manner is astounding to 
me.  Why do people concerned with animal rights continually try to put band 
aids on scratches while ignoring that the jugular has been cut?
