Bear Baying Is Back

In his inconceivable wisdometh, the Good Lord hath giveth mankind dominion over the animals … which in hindsight might not hath beeneth the besteth idea.

We’re referring in this particular case to the cruelly inhumane practice of “bear baying” – in which captive bears are attacked by dogs for sport or “training.” South Carolina remains the only state in the nation in which bear baying is legal, although the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) has been cracking down on the practice anyway by refusing to issue captive bear permits.

This week an Upstate man was arrested and forced to turn over three bears after he was caught engaging in the practice, according to The South Carolina Sportsman.

“James Robert Grumbles of Travelers Rest was charged with ill treatment of animals,” the website notes. “Officers said he allowed captive bears to be used to train bear dogs, allowing them to repeatedly attack and bite the bears.”

The bears will be sent to a wildlife preservation area in Colorado.

Obviously we support the rights of hunters and fishermen in South Carolina – and have led the charge against SCDNR for its efforts to exploit them. However we do believe the enforcement of animal cruelty laws is a core function of government – and those who slaughter or abuse animals for sport should be held accountable for their actions.

Well that’s a shame. I guess that means we can’t put Obonehead or Biden or Obonerhead or the rest of their ilk in a cage with rabid dogs. After all these guys are the architects of the market we will be having shortly.

Anybody ever wonder how many of those dead animals you see on the highways are suicides?

I sure hope so. That’d make me a euthanizer instead of a mass murderer. That’s as close as I’ll ever be to being a doctor.

Bwahahahahaha!

TBG saw a cartoon a while back that showed a man at a psychiatrist’s (or maybe a job placement) office. The shrink was telling him:

” You are extremely intelligent, also extremely arrogant. You view other people as insignificant insects. We’ve narrowed it down to doctor or serial killer.”

Why not have “politician baying” — think about the possibilities – fun for the entire family, revenue, reality shows, tar & feather the survivors, and even — oh, hell, it’s just wishful thinking………….

That’s why South Carolina will always be associated as being a hillbilly state by the rest of the world. When I moved here I was expecting to see Jethro Bodeen and Gomer Pyle, when I got here it took me about 10 minutes before I found them.
