Truth Stranger Than Just About Anything

PETA wishes Obama hadn't swatted that fly

PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.

"We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals," PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. "We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals."

I bet PETA folks would have an absolute stroke if they saw us putting fly spray on the horses. If I get a chance I kill everyone of those big horse flies I can, too. I am not apologetic for it.

In case anyone else is wondering what a Katcha Bug catcher is I found a picture.

Honestly the picture doesn't help me much in trying to figure out how to use the thing. PETA offers it for sale here. It is $8.00. There is also a link to the humane mousetrap which is $11 for one or $20 for two. It is easier to figure out. It is a little small though for some of our rats.

Really you just cannot make up stuff as good as this.

Oh brother. I guess they feel the same way about mosquitos. I suggest you catch a bunch and send them, overnight express to the PETA org. ;-}

Whether you like Obama or not, I think we can all agree he did the right thing by killing that little b******, excuse my French.

I'm no Obama supporter, but I was impressed with his fly killing ability! It takes a fast reaction to do as he did. Flies are the enemy around my horses, too. They actually lay eggs in their fur and eyes (known as bots). I guess by PETA's standards, that should be OK.
