Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Going nuts or Bull elephant control

Disney is exporting a rather odd type of medical assistnace.

When I was last in South Africa, I was lucky enough to visit one of the big wildlife reserves. But was upset to learn that the elephant population was doing too well for its own good. The herds were expanding at such a rapid rate that they were outgrowing the preserves and wandering off into nearby villages, where they were likely to encounter angry residents who wouldn't hesitate to kill them. Last year Disney sent vets from Animal Kingdom to the Welgevonden Game Reserve in South Africa where they performed vasectomies on four bull elephants in hopes of controlling the exploding elephant population. Now, they are returning to the same area to perform laparoscopic vasectomies on six to 10 bull elephants.
The Orlando Sentinel even has the video.(Edited of course)Will PETA get mad at Disney or applaud the corporation? Stay tuned.
