first kill all the dogs…
This dog was treated by a vet, but many were put down at the outbreak of WWII
Only in a nation as firmly dominionist as Great Britain, could the mass murder of more than 750,000 pets be construed as the kind thing to do as a precursor to WWII. In the midst of all the violence in the Balkan states in the recent past, a reporter interviewed a person walking a dog. When asked why he would risk going out, he noted that his dog was the last reminder of his humanity. Not so in Great Britain, where all pet owners were told to destroy their family pets at the start of WWII. They lost their humanity long before they engaged in battle. Recently, when the Tsarnayev brothers were on the loose in greater Boston, during the lock down, the only people out and about were those walking their dogs. Dogs have always brought out the best in us… but with the great cull of Great Britain (a nation often regarded as passionate about animals)- the worst.
The story is not more widely known because it was a difficult story to tell, says historian Kean.
“It isn’t well known that so many pets were killed because it isn’t a nice story, it doesn’t fit with this notion of us as a nation of animal lovers. People don’t like to remember that at the first sign of war we went out to kill the pussycat,” she says.
The killing of pets still goes on in dominion Europe and the USA… to the tune of 5 million a year in dog loving America. The great British pet massacre sheds light on recent treachery to animals… the ongoing badger cull, the fox hunting escapades of the upper class, cattle culls whenever some type of infection (even minute and non threatening) is found in a herd and the uncalled for destruction of Shambo, a non-symptomatic young bull diagnosed with bovine TB, who Hindu monks were willing to send to India to be treated and live out his days in peace.With a biblical mandate of justified violence there can be no peace for animals or humans.—RE
