My name is Margaret. I like birds and art and buildings. I'm pretty friendly so feel free to say hello. I'm good at losing things. I post way too much about my Crested Geckos, Cyrtodactylus, and other herps so I'm happy to answer any questions :)

Meet Blue Steel - he&#8217;s a funky new male that I&#8217;ve added to the collection over at The Harlequin Hoard :) I think he may be a genetic chimera/paradox, thoughts? :)

Quote reblogged from It's a Crazy Beautiful Life with 1,800 notes

Minot PD claims that the bite marks pierced the gloves the officer was wearing, but as someone who has handled a fox with mere welder’s gloves, I fail to see how he bit through the gloves. Not only that, but the officer was way out of line. There was no proof to the bite other than a picture submitted which could have been easily ripped off google, yet the police department acted on it without question. As far as the zoning violations, Tara was told by the mayor of Minot that it would be fine to own Vader so long as she kept him on the property, which she complied with. Tara stood up for the welfare of animals on the blogging site tumblr, but received overzealous, anonymous hatred for it that resulted in her personal pet being destroyed. Vader was a ranch fox, classified as a category 1 non-traditional livestock by North Dakota and are considered “generally domestic” - the same as common pets as ferrets and chinchillas, yet you do not see law enforcement or the Minot PD forcing their way into the homes of people who have chinchillas every time it bites (which chinchillas have been documented to contract rabies and are seldom vaccinated).

Tara purchased Vader from a USDA licensed breeder who provides an interstate certificate of health required to cross state lines in the United States.

Even if there had been zoning violations in place, Minot PD had no right to force themselves into a home based on an anonymously sent picture without any amount of fact-checking done. Vader was a wonderful example of a ranched fox, who wagged his tail and greeted the officer at the door who grabbed him by the neck despite being instructed, repeatedly, by those caring for him, not to. During the short time Vader was in custody of Animal Control, he was reported to wag his tail at the staff.

Vader’s death was the result of gross misuse of authority to violate the privacy and autonomy of a couple who privately owned a well-behaved animal that seldom left the property. Vader was an innocent animal who posed absolutely no risk to anyone, yet was killed, and law enforcement simply shrugs their shoulders and minimizes their errors in this matter as being excusable because of an anonymous picture that was never followed up on and a zoning violation.

Fucking spread this. Now.
