Rich Square, North Carolina, Where Heroes are Monsters

“Saving lives through slaughter,” the slogan I attached in 2013 to the Holley Fire Department, in Orleans County, New York, will also work for the fire department in Rich Square, North Carolina. On Saturday, April 9, Neanderthals from that company will host a fundraising event in which participating savages kill turkeys for the chance to win $500. Last year, according to The News & Observer, “about 150” savages entered the killing contest. The fire department raised $5,250, at $35 per murderer.

“A $35 entry includes a Friday night steak dinner that is cooked by the firefighters and features raffles and a rules presentation,” The News & Observer report tells us.

In other words, the violent thugs who pay to participate in the fundraising massacre will stuff their faces with the flesh of brutally slaughtered animals before brutally slaughtering other animals, all in the name of saving lives.

In 2013, representatives from Friends of Animals offered to raise money for the Holley Fire Department if officials there would call off their annual competitive slaughter, “Squirrel Slam,” which offers competitors a chance to win guns and cash. Not surprisingly, those officials declined the promise of blood-free cash, preferring to destroy as many lives as possible, all in the name of saving others.

The Holley Fire Department raised $6,000 in 2015, thanks to 600 murderers paying $10 apiece to unleash brutal violence on others. 

To raise the $5,250 it did last year, the Rich Square Volunteer Fire Department could ask each member of the community for about $6. Department members could organize a fundraising event in which no one gets killed. But it’s not about the money. It’s about the killing. And the loathsome degenerates who organize and participate in the annual massacre in Rich Square don’t want anyone from the surrounding civilization telling them how to live their lives while they’re enjoying taking others’–all in the name of saving a lucky few.

Like they are in Holley, the heroes in Rich Square are monsters.

Call Rich Square Volunteer Fire Department Chief Jonathan Morris at (252) 539-2933 and give him a piece of your mind. 

Ask your state legislators to support or introduce legislation that would outlaw wildlife-killing contests, and support the efforts of organizations like Friends of Animals and the Committee to Abolish Sport Hunting to bring an end to such savagery.

    It’s no use trying to reason or inject some empathy into their squirmy little crap brains. Their fun is only increased by the pain it gives to others. If you want to help the animals the only none violent option is to trap the ones you can and take them elsewhere. Bills have been in committee for years. Nothing happens.

    Thanks, Larry.

    You’re certainly right about the monsters taking great pleasure in showing the world how much they enjoy causing unimaginable suffering. I share your frustration.
