Don’t judge

In defence of the OSPCA.

It is unfortunate that so many animals’ lives were lost, but it’s not the end of the world. The OSPCA did what it thought was the responsible thing in humanely destroying these animals to prevent the spread of ringworm to the outside community.

They were being fiscally responsible, too. Ringworm can take three to eight weeks to treat in a single animal in isolation. With more than 300 infected animals, staff at the shelter were looking at a nightmare that could have closed the shelter for months, if not longer. Who would have filled the shelter’s role for the next two to three months of quarantine?

What’s more troubling is the fact that there were 350 animals in the shelter in the first place. Where were the protesters two weeks or two months ago? If they cared so much, why weren’t they speaking out then or offering to give them homes?
