Their Very Own SWAT Unit
I'm not a violent person on the surface. The times I've thought I could really attack someone has been in defense of a defenseless child or animal. I remember my childhood slingshot brigade organized to combat a dairy farmer who sold newborn calves for veal. And a woman at the zoo, who gave her baby an open-handed slap for crying. We could've all gone to jail if my husband hadn't been a calming influence and held the baby until she laughed and touched his nose with a drooly fingertip.
That's why I have so much respect for the SWAT teams of the Humane Society. They go by the law and get the job done WITHOUT violence.
If you're planning a career involving animals, you might explore the HSUS.
