Lubbock Museum Kills Two Mules For Public Display

Here’s a story buried in the depths of obscurity, that is sure to stir controversy, and have animal rights activists gearing up for a protest.  Of course, it won’t help the steadfast wrangling of each parties position, now that I brought it to light.

The American Museum of Agriculture in Lubbock has been thrust into the spotlight for purchasing two mules  –  for the purpose  –  of putting them to sleep.

Museum officials contend that they were unable to find a cache of already preserved animals, and by allowing euthanasia, spared the mules an imminent slaughter.

They further defend their decision by issuing a statement in part saying, by putting “real” animals on display, visitors could enjoy a more accurate picture of how field mules are used in everyday life.

Hold your breath…The PETA retort can’t be too far behind!
