I say it's only fair if we do the same to those golfers
If anyone cares, Scarlett is alive and doing as well as can be expected. She has a long road to recovery. That said, they can’t confirm that she was beaten by golfers. That’s all the info I found on google
@Pat Myckok, thanks for posting this, while some people consider them pests it pisses me off to see anything treated like that. Glad it wasnt just put down cuz nobody cares.
The f@ck is wrong with people.
@An Average Australian, after all this time you've been alive, you ask this question? Thats like being surprised that racism still exists..
@freakazoid, I’m simply perplexed that a person could have this thought pattern. “I’m gonna bash this possum with a golf club” like I seriously can’t imagine having that thought.
@An Average Australian, people who harm animals are some of the lowest
Let’s show em the same treatment 😊
That’s a new low in humanity
WTF. If you’re inclined to harm babies, go to medical school and become an abortion doctor...
@A Deformed Penis, I wish I could upvote repeatedly
@A Deformed Penis, this was a two second emotional roller coaster.
@A Deformed Penis, unfortunately, there’d probably be more outrage about this opossum than about the babies you’re talking about. Not saying those golfers aren’t sick in the head.
@Snarfel Burger, well, they're golfers, so obviously they're about 5 aces short of a full deck anyhow.
@Snarfel Burger, well yeah, opossums actually have a benefit to the Earth.
@A Deformed Penis, I think most people here won't take that bait.
@Snarfel Burger, From the comments here it sounds like there very little info on what actually happened. It could have tried to bite the golfer if he walked up on it looking for his ball, and he defended himself. It may not have been malicious, but it may have. If it was they should burn in hell.
Once caught a baby Opossum in a bin in our garage. Couldn't get to the dog food but found dirty cans in the recycling bin on the floor. Flipped it upside down and set it out in the field a few blocks away. I don't miss that little snaggletooth and it's hissing fit.
Also caught a family of baby raccoons in our toolbox in the garage. Set them free in that same field. Loading the toolbox into the back of the Blazer wasn't fun.
If you or a loved one is considering picking up golf; euthanize them. Its the most humane thing to do at that point.
At first i thought it said gophers instead of golfers. And all i could think was who cares what wild animals do to other wild animals. Tis nature.
Dont post this sh!t
I’ll probably be downvoted to hell for saying this but like it’s a freaking opossum, do we really care that much?
@Awc123awc, actually, yes, they can't get Lyme disease and keep the population of ticks down which is very good for our domestic pets and other animals
@ SapphireAquaDragon, the also dont get rabies as their body temperature is to low for the virus to live
@mycatsanahole, that's what I was thinking, but couldn't remember for sure. My parents have one that hangs around their house and they'll leave scraps out for it just because they know it helps out their dogs in the long run. They call the opossum Fred.
@ SapphireAquaDragon, oh wow these are quite interesting facts, thank you!
@Awc123awc, i didnt realize everyone was 10-ply but it makes sense thinking about society. Theyre rodents. Youre right.
@CaptainDobie, what in the world does 10-ply mean?
@Awc123awc, Super soft haha
@Awc123awc, I don’t care about opossums. I do care about abusing an animal and leaving it to suffer. That’s sick no matter what.
@big freedom, Yes I agree with that. Noy saying I dont. Im a big hunter and nothing matters more to me than making sure an animal doesnt suffer. But obviously the normal person doesnt know if they have rabies or not and if they see it mid day theyll obviously protect themselves
@Awc123awc, "The idea that some lives matter less is the root of all that is wrong with the world." Just gonna leave that quote here.
@CaptainDobie, actually, they aren't rodents but are classified in the marsupial family
@Awc123awc, you're very welcome! ^_^
Possums might be nasty and mean looking but no animal deserves that even if an animal was attacking me I’d still feel bad for hitting it
I COME HERE TO FEEL GOOD FFS
I believe Trump signed legislation that can qualify this is a felony.
@Divided 0, not even a little bit
@CaptainDobie, If you did even one google search you would find out that He signed the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Bill on 25 NOV 2019. Pull your head out of your @ss. Orange man is not always bad.
@Divided 0, dude its a feral animal. Its not domesticated. If he tried protecting every feral animal in the states the farms themselves would be screwed because they couldnt handle the opposums, raccoons, or even cats. And thats just three examples. Maybe you should pull your own head out of yours.
@CaptainDobie, I’ve read the bill, and by my interpretation of it, clubbing the shjt out of possum on a golf coarse very easily falls into animal cruelty. Agree to disagree I guess.
@CaptainDobie, animal abuse my dude. It’s not specifically protecting opossums...
@big freedom, didnt say it was? Feel like if they went and captured it and tortured it, its a different story. But protecting yourself is something else.
@Divided 0, the new bill addresses a bill that was signed by Obama in 2010, which also addressed an even older bill from the 90’s. The Bill from Obama’s era enlarged the circle of protection, addressing torture videos of animals etc, the new bill making it a felony, but it’s actually senate and house representatives that vote and push the bill through. The acting president just signs it. It’s not really fair to make it seem like Trump wrote and pushed for this bill lol what kind of monster wouldn’t sign a bill protecting animals? The new bill is essentially the same as the old when it comes to the outlines of the rules, what changed was that you could be charged with a federal crime now, which is good! They also updated the bill in 2017 as well, it’s been an ongoing process since the 70s I believe. That was my take away at least. And unfortunately I don’t think our sweet Scarlet will get justice, however she does deserve it! And these a holes should pay for what they did
@masanchez88, we’ll stated. I agree
Reading it as gophers the animal changes everything. I was like dam who knew they were so violent. Then read golfers
anybody seen the new clip of how DOOMSLAYER receives the super shotgun? Most doom thing i’ve ever seen
