:While I appreciate the care you have for the animals, that does not condone the level to which this forum has sunk. Absolutely despicable behaviour. To call someone and threaten violence over the venomoid issue is the same sick mentality as anti-abortionists killing abortion doctors.
If the allegation is true and not an exaggeration or a misstatement, I agree that making violent threats is totally unacceptable and any evidence of same should go to the authorities. I don't think the majority of people on this forum are stooping to that level however. I think we maybe have one nut case who decided to blow his temper on somebody's answering machine because he was too cowardly to talk to a live person.
I'm very firmly against venomoiding, especially by non veterinarians for the public market. But I don't condone making threats on people's answering machines, and I don't think that whoever did this is really helping our side of the cause at all. I'm asking my fellow anti-venomoiders not to do anything like this because it's not only illegal, it's bloody stupid.
If you're really angry at a kitchen table venomoider, don't threaten him. Don't talk to him at all. Do talk to the relevant state authorities regarding practicing veterinary medicine for money without a license and using controlled drugs at home.
