Protecting Alberta From Animal Rights Extremists

Alberta has always been good to me. A good economy, lots of jobs and nice way of life. I believe in Alberta and for what it stands for.

A new enemy of Alberta has raised it's ugly head in recent years. A enemy hidden in the guise of animal rights. The animal rights movement is nothing new and has been around for years. Alberta has been shielded from the animal rights movement for the most part. But now things seem to be changing.

The animal rights movement here in Alberta is not really concerned with the welfare of animals, the push for animal rights is only to give an appearance of legitimacy. The true agenda of the animal rights movement is quite a bit different.

The animal rights movement demands that we outlaw hunting, fishing, trapping and stop eating all forms of animal meat. No more hamburgers and milkshakes. No more ranching, cattle,dairy products, honey, use of horses,rodeo's, zoos, circuses and the list goes on. They are even threatening us with loosing our family pets!! The animal rights extremists are just plain nuts!!

If the animal rights extremists even gets part of their true agenda, what will happen to the Alberta economy. Alberta and all the good it stands for may cease to exists. Even our oil and gas is not safe from them!!

Don't buy into their nonsense and do not support them financially. The animal rights movement and the extremists can never be trusted.

Who Are The Animal Rights Extremists In Alberta

Alberta is cattle country, hunting,fishing,farming,ranching and the oil patch. Needless to say that animal rights extremists don't exactly fit in here to well

Voice for Animals seem to be one of the only animal rights groups here in Alberta.They are a small group, comprised mostly of young people and their mothers. I recently was sent some photos of a demonstration in Camrose, Alberta. There was 8 people protesting.If it wasn't for the signs they were waving around, I would have thought it was a family get together.

Another protest in Jan./2008 was around the elephant at the Valley Zoo. The domonstration went off very well, they left when the police arrived and as one of the protesters stated "a good time was had by all" These are not your hard core protestors here.In Edmonton the animal rights group that pulls off these demonstations is called Voice For Animals.

What does voice for Animals actually do for the public here in Alberta, Canada. Well, I scoured the net for hours trying to answer that very question. I do see that they try and raise our awareness of problems that occur concerning animals. A worthy cause to a point. Yes we should be made more aware of the abuse of animals, and yes we should be doing a better job of protecting them. But apart from some blustering and chest pounding, I have yet to see them lift one finger to help even one animal. Voice for Animals group does ask us for our money. I wouldn't mind making a donation myself if I had a clue what they really do?? There is a great many animal rights groups in the country today and they all are looking for donations. My advice to anyone reading this, look into the history of the group before you give them any of your money. It may not be what you think!
