Re: “Burning Question: Was it a Neko Case of Mistaken Identity?

My sister lives next door to the house and my brother in law helped move equipment for the fire fighters the night of the fire. Ive seen Neko walking by their house several times when Ive been there. I never knew who she was before the fire but after seeing her picture on the news we put two and two together. Its to bad about the fire the barn and house were very nice.

Sadly, Neko will probably leave VT now! I thought we VTers took pride in not being star stuck and being rather protective of our well-known residents.

She is entitled to her privacy, even if the creative side of her is public. I don't think if this was Jane Smith denying residence in a burned down barn/homestead the AP or 7D would pursue an article trying to pin ownership. In an attempt to expose her privacy you may be putting her in danger.

Not that this particularly speaks to the message of this trio, but here's a friendly reminder that PETA euthanizes a lot of animals every year:

Re: “Moooving Scene on Church Street: PETA Activists Say No to Cow's Milk

In response to Alicia: Yes it is in fact the factory farms that are the problem. But most of the population doesn't live in rural areas on idealistic farms, where they share milk with calves. In truth most calves get 24-28 hours with their mom before they are taken away to either be raised for veal or as a dairy cow where they will forcibly be impregnated every year to produce milk for people and once spent be sent to slaughter for meat. And the milk that was supposed to go to those calves go to humans instead.

In response to Fred: Everybody wouldn't go vegan all at once. There would be a slow increase in the population converting to veganism over a long period of time. This would reduce the demand for dairy, which would lower the amount of dairy cattle being bred... there wouldn't just be a massive switch and slaughter.

I found these documentaries very informative: Watch Cowspiracy (cowspiracy.com) or watch on Netflix, or watch Vegucated on Netflix.

Re: “Moooving Scene on Church Street: PETA Activists Say No to Cow's Milk

And what about the thousands of years prior to the invention of formula where some mothers who couldn't produce enough milk for their babies or afford a wet nurse? These parents resorted to the breast milk of animals. So it was either breast milk of an animal, or human baby dies. Several of my family members come from rural European countries where they relied on the milk of cows and goats for daily sustenance (these were poor villages where one simply can't buy "soy milk" or "coconut milk" from grocery stores.) My family also testified to the fact that when the mother cow gave birth, the cow produced plenty of milk for both the calf and human family. The evidence: the calves grew up healthy and happy on open farms and grew up to reproduce their own calves. I'm sorry but this is a poor protest on PETAs part. If you're going to protest drinking animal milk due to animal cruelty that comes from the western dairy industry--- that is fine. However this doesn't mean that every farm practices inhumane treatment of animals. The issue should be to address animal cruelty in the dairy and meat industry, not whether we are drinking the "breast milk" of an animal.

Re: “Moooving Scene on Church Street: PETA Activists Say No to Cow's Milk

If everyone stopped drinking milk (what about milk products, butter, cheese, etc.?) millions of dairy cows would no longer be needed and would be slaughtered. Is that PETA's goal? Let's face it, PETA members are fanatics, they will find things to complain about with no thought to the unanticipated consequences. If they don't drink milk and eschew milk products, that's alright with me; but get off my back.

Re: “Oh, Canada: Immigrants Seeking Hope Step Across the Border

So people on a temporary protected status are being told to return to their home country because it's been seven years since the natural disaster that displaced them and this is an "immigration crackdown"?

I'm no fan of Trump, but If they thought refugee status was permanent residency that wasn't Trump's fault, it the fault of whoever mislead them.

Re: “A Rash of Goat Thefts Has Vermont Farmers Scratching Their Heads

a property in Lisbon, NH on 302 has been adding goats to their herd at a fast rate says a co-worker? I don't know anything about it or them but if I had recognizable goats I'd check it out. It's a start. If nothing else to network with fellow goaters.
