Psychopathy reigns in 2021. Merseyside Police shot and killed a rare white stag on Sunday evening. It was spotted roaming the streets of Bootle earlier in the day.
The RSPCA advised the police to leave the deer be and it would make its way home eventually. However, the police claimed that the deer presented a threat to pedestrians and motorists and shot it.
Why wasn’t the deer tranquilised and taken to safety? The police said that they were “unable to get assistance” after attempting to identify an organisation that could help with safely capturing the animal.
The stag was steered towards an industrial estate where it was killed.
The North West of the UK is well served by zoos and safari parks. Surely, someone trained in handling large animals could’ve been brought in to safely sedate it?
The decision to destroy the stag was psychotic. There’s no excuse for it. Then again, look at what they did to Geronimo the alpaca. They dragged him into a lorry in front of his devastated owner and callously slaughtered him, only for the post mortem to show that he never had tuberculosis in the first place.
Yep, psychopathy reigns in 2021.
