I had another post planned for today but then this came to my inbox and is way more important to share

Because he doesn’t have a REBLOG button that I could find, The Matticus Kingdom gave me express permission to copy and paste.

The subject is important. The words, raw and beautiful, drip tears of outrage. 

Here’s his post and if you don’t already, follow him!

Coyote

The walls and black scars, full of screaming metal, crept across the land,
A progressively greedy excess without permission, balance or order,
And the ancestral paths of the pack were cut and buried asunder,
Forcing them to wander further away from the shifting sand,
To provide their families with food and sheltered dens,
Under the disdainful, entitled, glare of fearful men.

We are supposed to be knowledgeable and civilized,
And should be mindful of our encroachment,
Change our behavior and sentiment,
To achieve the ultimate prize,
And coexist peacefully,
As it should be.

Instead, we condone shooting coyotes with paintballs…

Is that really who we have become?

  1. Thanks for sharing this!
    I’m still a bit shocked by it… As the world begins to learn (admit) the hazards of bullying and hazing among kids, how is any government entity sponsoring exactly the same behavior towards anyone or anything? And their community is okay with it? If I lived in Irvine (or any of the other communities that have adopted this policy of hazing) I’d be sending my officials daily messages…
    Hey, I don’t like the way my neibhbor parks his car, can I shoot him with paintballs too?
    Hey, I think homeless guy who sits on the corner at the end of my block might be dangerous, can I shoot him with paintballs too?
    Hey, I don’t like the way you are governing, can I shoot you with paintballs too?
