I posted earlier about how much I dislike when 'animal rights' movements put animals ahead of people. Here is an example of a boy with enough bravery and sense at 5 years-old to understand the danger of an attacking wild animal. The 5 year-old Rayshun McDowell pinned a rabid fox to the ground to keep it away from the rest of his family. His step-father, who killed the animal after it was shot three times and still advancing, beat it to death with his CRUTCH! The fox had already attacked a 6 year-old girl in the neighborhood.
One point that I think is funny is that it was a family picnic and the neighbor brought his handgun!
