Caboodle Ranch??? Then what ??? You???

Caboodle Ranch is in the news everywhere. There are so many different opinions on the subject.

First, I must say my heart goes out to Mr. Grant, the workers and volunteers. The pain they are all feeling now is just so beyond belief.

No matter what has happened, no one should have a gun held to their head, unless they are armed and dangerous. Your home totally destroyed and your life along with it???? Without a trial???? This has been done by a long list of so called concerned organizations,law enforcement and judges?? They claim to be protecting the welfare of animals???

Can you imagine the terror inflicted by this mass army of
"do good-ers"?? A big horde storming in and terrorizing the population?? This is, protectors of animal welfare???? My heart goes out to all those scared helpless cats. The fear they must be enduring now, has got to be overwhelming.

This man has already been found guilty with, no court, no lawyer, no say. Guilty as charged as soon as they invaded the Ranch. Before a trial??? Charges stemming from evidence not yet determined usable, in a court of law. What justice is this???

Why would any respectful group want to destroy newspaper clippings and cat houses. What uncivilized animals do they have representing them??? Sounds like the Mafia of the non profits to me. Guns and Mayhem. They must be so proud of themselves.

No matter who is right or wrong, the approach to this situation was so, very excessive. Yes it had disorganization written all over it. Anyone who deals with big business or government is, well aware of lack of, using the brain. Did they ever think of asking themselves the big question??? What if???. Well there is a key word here, "BRAIN" or lack of, in this case.

Where is the support and well being these people preach?? Where is the concern for the outcome of the innocent??? The cats in this case.What is their fate?? Is their future really going to be better??? Or is there a future????

So who is really guilty of cruelty??? Who else should be in jail???

If it was so bad there why, did it take them years??? I read so many comments from people who said, they saw awful conditions, filth, disease etc: If you saw something that bad, why are you just talking about it now????

I saw a comment from an out of state Vet.??? He went to visit the ranch. What was wrong with you??? You know how to use a phone, you know "WHO" to call. You are guilty yourself, if you really are who you say you are??? How could they just keep your mouth shut and turn the other cheek since 2009????

I can't keep mine mouth shut when I see something wrong and I have not. I have called animal control may times when, I thought something was not right. That's what they are there for.

If authorities were called through the years, where were they??? Why were existing laws and ordinances ignored??? Who is really guilty???

Please take a few minutes and think about what is happening here. One day it may be someone knocking at your door, telling you to turn over your animals. No questions, just because they say so. It could be your world, they rock!!! No ones to small not, even the single pet household.

Copy and Paste:

Make sure to read some of the comments at the end of the story. Very interesting indeed.

I am amazed at the big response this subject has been getting. It should be getting every pet owners attention as, no one is immune.

Some say it's a sickness this man has, he's a hoarder. I strongly disagree. Yes it is a sickness, its called irresponsibility of the owners for dumping there animals. Not getting then fixed, for not giving them proper vet care. He's the victim.

Mr. Grant started with a good idea and people took advantage of him. No one helped him. PETA didn't offer help to guide him in a positive direction.

They have the resources and connections to give a happy ending to Caboodle Ranch. What message is there with all the devastation they have induced?? All involved develop their own reputation with their own actions. Remember people they are non-profit. they all depend on your donations to exist.

Some said, he is to old. Honey, I have a Mother 88 and can out run most people, half her age. What is to old? People live to be 100 plus. When your his age, you have one heck of a lot left in you to burn. One day everyone of you will find out for yourselves, God willing.

People who throw their pets out the door leave all responsibility. I know of feral communities that individuals use their own resources to feed and vet. I don't see PETA driving up and giving a bag of food to anyone. So which one of these people need a gun held to their head???

How many of you have one of these throw away's??? How many have you encountered in your life time??? How many are dead along the road??

Unfounded truth??? The whistle blower working for PETA, gathering the evidence???? She was the one in charge of caring and cleaning the sick house. Why isn't she in jail??? After all she saw it all. She was inducing a lot of the suffering. She filmed what she was not cleaning and caring for.

I'm sorry, I have gone nuts here. This is a very heart felt story. It touches each and every one of us in some why. We all need to work together not, against each other. A lot of little lives, without voices are in the balance.
