My Name is Stupid

2 Jun

I don’t know if there’s something in the air but in the last few weeks there have been two clear examples of people who need to get some sense smacked into them.

First, there was the father and son who were at a national park and put a baby bison in the back of their SUV because it was cold.  Really?!  Did you have a conversation with the baby bison?  Was it shivering and pointing towards your vehicle? You didn’t realize they’ve been here FOREVER and have adapted to the cold?  It’s not a dog, you idiots, it’s a BISON WHO LIVES AND SURVIVES IN THE WILD!

Thanks to these knuckleheads, the baby bison was rejected by its herd and had to be euthanized.  Wherever you two dopes are, please don’t step outside of the city limits again.  Limit your animal interactions to a zoo or by watching Animal Planet and call it a day.

Speaking of zoos….it was terrifying to see the little boy being dragged around by the gorilla after he fell into an exhibit.  If that were my child, I would be terrified.  However, my child wouldn’t be in that situation because I PAY ATTENTION AND WATCH MY KID.

This poor gorilla did not need to die, but unfortunately had to, because the mom was not being a responsible parent and watching her son.  It’s funny how the barriers around the exhibit have been safe and had zero incidents since it opened, but now it’s a giant safety hazard.

Nice to hear the parents aren’t going to sue the zoo for lack of proper safeguards.  Can we have the ability to sue people for being crappy parents and not watching or taking care of their kids?

I feel like common sense has gone by the wayside.  It’s too frequent that parents are distracted by their phones or by their surroundings, and they’re not paying attention to their kids.  It’s your responsibility to watch them, not ours.  Yes, it takes a village to raise awesome, healthy kids, but you need to take ownership of your chunk of the parent pie.
