Thank You Animal Planet

After have spent over the last year without cable, I had gone to a friends house to record a television program for her and my girlfriend. As I was sitting back and flipping through the channels, I stopped by Animal Planet and watched some of the Miami Animal Cops show. What a load of crap. Anyone who likes that needs a good head examination. Not a soul new anything about animals, just dips in suits. Even the so-called herp expert had to say that Burmese pythons were known to kill and eat people. How nice to add on public TV. Makes for great words for the public to hear.

Animal Planet is adding some extremmely crap shows to their programming. None of which even has anything all that important nor truthful to add about animals and the things that we should be learning. All it is becomming (prolly has been for some time) is a bunch of these "police" shows with a$$holes that have no clue about the animals they protect and these silly morning shows about doggies and the moronic owners. What ever happened to spaying and neutering? Now we glorify morons and the dogs and cats they should not be having come into the world. It's the people in the shows that need to spayed and neutered. Maybe they can get Melissa Kaplan her own talk show now. That's if they can find a couch big enough for the hostess.

What ever happened to helping native wildlife over our own sillly pets? Seems Animal Planet only cares for one thing, and that is being in the money machine. Very rarely is there a decent show on any longer, and these make up the re-runs. This channel sucks. I recommend everyone turn off their television and head out and go hiking. Go see a movie. Would be real nice for them to trully get into caring for the world and its creatures, but no, they choose to make ***** programming for morons who cannot leave the couch.

Thank You Animal Planet.....We solute you.

"our own sillly pets"

Well if humans cannot grasp the simple care it takes to control their own "silly pets" then how do you expect the general public to help native wildlife? LOL. Most people are not wildlife lovers, but only domestic animal lovers. You can't force people to care, or to know what we might know about reptiles, etc. You just can't. The Animal Planet was created to make money for the station, not to make people happy so before turning it on people should realize that. Just like the dumb pet stores, they aren't there to help animals or save them. They are there to make money.

" but no, they choose to make ***** programming for morons who cannot leave the couch."

Of course they do. The hikers rarely carry a tv in their packs. LOL

I definately prefer the National Geographic animal shows to animal planet. Much more informative and realistic. I swear, that show "Planets Animals" in on like 10 times a day on Animal Planet...drives me crazy.

what is the purpose of a television channel again?

oh yeah, to make money

I have only seen 2 episodes of miami animal police, but I like it
although, I did think it was questionable to feed that huge snake a chicken by hand, but I've never fed a huge snake before, so I don't know if that's standard procedure or not

here here to Nat'l Geographic, we watch that all the's exactly like Discovery used to be back in the day, but they've got their lame *** shows too, like "Dogs with Jobs" and "World's apart"
