out of all the issues CA faces this is where we spend the money?

Clearly those who protest this have no actual education in how it is done or the actual affects on the animals. After visiting a farm in France where this is done I have to say I dont know what the problem is. The animals practically line up at feeding time.

For all of you who protest this ask yourself: how many items of clothing do I own that contains leather? I am sure a few of you will say none, but for the rest, just shut up about things you do not understand.

The UPS delivery man hit on the head of a small
Bichon Firse dog, in front of the home owner.

My small dog barked and ran to the front door
when I opened after hearing the door bell rang.
I was shocked to see the UPS delivery man
hit the dog on the head with his scanner in front
of me. Being hit hard on the head, my dog was
stunned and immobile for quite some time

I asked the UPS man why he did that, but he didn't
answer me except saying some loud curses. It has
been 3 days since, and my small dog is still nervous
of loud noise.

It's unbelievable that there is such rude people in
this modern society.

When I called UPS to report that the delivery man
in my area, CA 95138, hit my dog with his scanner
in front of me, a UPS representative replied that
it is the company policy and he cannot do anything
about that. but he did not mention crass words crab
delivery staff

I think one would use wise judgment when following
company policy. He didn't have to hit a small 12 lbs
dog because this little dog couldn't pose any threat
to him. Furthermore, the delivery staff shouldn't use
foul language to address to customers
