It is terrifying how far some people will go to enlarge their egos. The latest craze in pet accessories is the ‘pet’ tattoo. To tattoo an animal can at best be described as cruel at worst a type of blasphemy. For no matter whatever a person’s beliefs may be … we live on a truly magnificent planet with a wonderful mixture of wildlife that are all very beautiful in their own right. The human race appears to be riddled with all kinds of insecurities some induce a type of morphing of perception of shape and form which induces many to either indulge in plastic surgery, body piercings or tattoos. To carry these insecurities by performing the same onto pets is an abomination … surely there cannot be many people who actually think that this is a good thing to do? Tattooing animals can only be done when the animal is anesthetised – they are kept asleep for approximately three hours – not only does this put their lives at risk but what about the pain and soreness endured afterwards?
Poor, poor animal – I hope that when this kind of cruelty occurs, people are reported and their animals siezed … perhaps a stay in prison for the owners to reflect would not be unjust?
