We don't need a fight.


You shouldn't be catching wild animals because they are wild; the key word being wild. Wild animals need to be left alone. There is a number of diseases and illness that you can obtain from wild animals and it stressed the animal.

Not to mention that many wild animals can die from stress when random strange humans catch and then release them.

We are as gods to the beasts of the fields. We order the time o' their birth and the time o' their death. Between times, we ha' a duty. - Terry Pratchett.

Okay think about this....

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act is a federal law that protects virtually all native species of birds in North America.

It makes it illegal for people to "take" migratory birds, their eggs, feathers or nests. Take is defined in the MBTA to include by any means or in any manner, any attempt at hunting, pursuing, wounding, killing, possessing or transporting any migratory bird, nest, egg, or part thereof.

The picture you posted is of a English House Sparrow. It's an introduced species that isn't covered under the MBTA in the US. They are a pest, and many biologists would say the real crime in what you did was releasing it instead of euthanizing it. They are frequent vectors for diseases like conjunctivitis, Salmonella and parasites like ticks and mites. (Hope you washed your hands...)

If it had been a native species though...

Posting a picture of yourself on the internet, breaking a federal law is the kind of thing that gets you a television spot on World's Dumbest Criminals.

Every animal is a pest and over breed especially dogs yet people still have them letting a WILD bird go is just as bad as people trying to save every overbreed dog. The worlds never gonna change.

No, not every animal is a pest, ...unless you just don't like animals.


They're only pests when people step in, cause a problem and then give up and bury their heads in the ground; rather than solve the problem they created. Overpopulations mean that someone needs to make unpopular decisions, ...like euathanizing homeless/feral/invasive animals. Unfortunately, we have become a population that only sees these animals as pets instead of the problems that they cause.


The world is changing, day by day, minute by minute. If you aren't part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

Animals are not pests! I think humans are pests. We have technology, schools, transportation, and so much more yet we hunt, kill, and torture those weaker than ourselves.
