"I'm sorry, I got degus because I thought they were exotic and cool, but didn't think it worth my time to educate myself on keeping them. Now I'm bored with them, and have let them breed carelessly. So you know what, instead of giving a rip, I'm going to ask for help to say I 'tried' and then I'll toss them outside with the trash because I don't even have enough sense of responsibility to give them time to find a home or even the guts to at least kill them with my own two hands so they don't suffer. And hey, if they survive, what does it matter that they could be destructive to the local environment. It's a happy ending because I say so."
I haven't been this furious in a long while. I'm not a person who anthropomorphizes animals or even necessarily always considers it wrong to euthanize animals for reasons other than to end suffering. But this whole thing shows a total lack of any level of ethical stewardship of animals.
Do yourself and everyone a favor. If you chose to continue to be this kind of animal owner, than never own an animal again.
I know I've probably just broken every rule of the forum by posting this. I'm not going to view or post in this thread again.
