The slippery slope
I saw the Mail Tribune article “Group wants ban on painful training,” and have to say I absolutely disagree with Commissioner Colleen Roberts’ “slippery slope” argument against banning the use of painful training and punishment devices for elephants, primates, big cats and bears.
If as a county we are not committed to stopping animal cruelty, then what next? What other types of cruelty might we be willing to ignore in the future? Not to enact this animal training ban is the slippery slope, commissioner.
