The only real issue I have with with animal rights activists, is I have nevr personally met one that wouldn't stomp on ten of these:

or other such ugly creature's while running to protest the mistreatment of something cute.

And never mind ugly animals...
I think it is shameful and offensive to humanity that people spend obscene amounts of money "Protecting" animal rights and "Raising awareness" for the plight of poor animals while completely ignoring or distracting attention away from the plight of thier fellow HUMAN BEINGS....



Sorry but the squirrels are doing just fine.
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

Whilst I have no argument with you regarding activists and people who waste money on "poor defenceless animals" I really didn`t start this thread to engage in another futile swapping of veiled insults and taking of sides.
You have shown a photo of something I would not dream of killing - the baby rat , and someone who I have had a reasonable amount of experience with , the "homeless" person.
My wife and I ran a dockside cafe for 5 years and were frequented by many of these people - many who WANTED to be in the situation they found themselves in as it suited their lifestyle choice and certainly did not need our pity - although a bacon butty and a cuppa was always welcomed.My daughter - now a caring and experienced police officer - grew up from age 6 to 12 in that environment and was taught to show them respect - they in turn would bring her small gifts such as wild fruit or berries collected on their travels.
Whilst I accept that there are many who do not choose to be in the position they are in - please do not hijack my thread for your campaign as it was meant as a lighthearted set of photos of a family "pet".

Respectfully

Tony

Cyril the Wirral Squirrel seems to be beocming a bit if a star thanks to you

Will you be his agent

Is that a naked mole rat or a baby rat in the second post? - either way it's quite cute.

I won't get started on rights of anything or anybody but I may trip our local airgun idiot should I find them
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Number 4 reminds me of Oliver saying

"Please sir, can I have some more?"

That has to be the pick of the bunch.

Number 3 is my pick. Plus the title (please not Cyrille, unless this squirrel nibbles both ends of the nut).
