So Georgia brought home a flier Friday from school.
It was all about the assembly they are having this week involving tigers.
As you could guess, I was interested
Well the flier says little about "what" the assembly would include
It does however include a full page order form for a photo op
With a cat on a leash, that judging by the pictures, weighs about 100lbs
What The FU@&!!!
People this is wrong on so many levels
First off, who the hell are these people with the cats?
I am sure someone checked up on them,,,,but who were they, what did they know?
Choctaw County OK. is one of the poorest counties in the US
It seems odd someone thought it was a good idea to send a flier
Promoting a $24 picture with a tiger home with kids, leading
The parents to believe their child will feel some sort of peer pressure
If they don't sit up there with the rest of their friends
Public contact with tigers is WRONG!!
It is bad for the tiger if you do it when they are young enough to not be dangerous
It is stupid to do it after they aren't
I am not some Animal Rights Radical
I train these animals for a living people
Unless it is in a glass box (which is not what the photos in flier show)
IT IS NOT SAFE
Some of my diciest moments have been with cats the size of the one in this flier
Needless to say
Georgia won't be getting her picture taken
And I plan to attend the "educational" assembly
I will keep my mouth closed if possible
I just have to ask myself "who" thought this was ok?
I was probably stumblin down some back alley in Amsterdam
While you were makin excuses and breakin another heart
Or maybe I was drinkin wine with pigeons on the square in Venice
Wonderin what you were doin and wonderin where you are
