The concentration camps of the 21ST century
There are places in America and around the world, RIGHT NOW that have thousands of lives waiting to die… or be sold to die. They don’t have a choice. Nobody asked them, They have NO RIGHTS, they don’t have to be feed or kept warm and some of them are apart of experiments that would make you sick if you saw. We have walked the “RED MILE” and saw ten thousand faces pleading back as we walked by HELP ME!... WHERE AM I?... WHO ARE YOU?... CAN YOU HELP US?... I AM COLD... I LOST A FIN... THAT GUY LOST AN EYE... WHY DO THEY POUR POISON ON US? ...I’M HUNGRY... I’M SCARED... HAVE YOU SEEN MY MOM?..., ON . . AND ON . . . AND ON… they went as far as you can see. I have never been so sick to my stomach in my life. All those eyes looking at us wondering if we were there to kill them or help them, But we were there just to buy them. We had never been to a wholesale fish place when we started a mom and pop pet store in a small town in the Midwest, we never knew there was a place with so many living creatures waiting to die. What could we do? We wanted to buy them all. But we couldn’t, so we asked, why do so many die after being treated in this manner. Well we found out that the whole place ran together with the same water, every box, every little cube, every over stuffed tank in the place all running with the same water, well not exactly “water”, more like one part copper, one part formaldehyde, one part Methylene Blue one part this and one part that, more like soup. Soup made by the cook or they call them biologists or director of husbandry or some B.S. title in other words the guy that learned in school by the best people that think they know something or they know so much . . . They should run for GOD! That for 40 years we have used Copper, Methylene Blue, Malachite Green, Formalin, etc. so it must be right, we have a degree that says we know what we are doing. What they have is a degree in the old way of doing things that doesn’t work and never will. Ten thousands wrongs don’t make it right.
We CAN stop the killing that starts with the wholesale killing machines, which is magnified 10 fold by your local place of death (pet store), and ENDS in YOUR aquarium. By the death of millions of precious lives that YOU pay for in the long run. Please, do not support the killing machines. Ask where they come from. Don’t buy online or ‘Craig's list” or “e-bay“. These creatures are not garage sale items, they are living breathing creatures that deserve to be treated better then that some piece of junk in your garage. Some of these live creatures or corals sold online on e-bay and Craig’s list are poached or stolen from other countries, you see them. Why are THEY the “ONLY ONES” with them and why can they give it some cute name and charge $1800 for one eye? BECAUSE IT‘S STOLEN! DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THESE COMMON THIEVES!. Boycott them! In all areas,call the us fish and wildlife! You know who they are, if not, ask or look and see who is selling stolen $1800.00 corals. Let everybody know who they are. We need to talk about it not push it under a rug, JUST because we want one of those corals someday. Wrong is wrong, we need YOUR help with this.. Please lets put an end to the concentration camps around the world.
