Don’t kill mosquitoes – let them suck your blood, urges animal-rights activist

Don’t kill mosquitoes – let them suck your blood, urges animal-rights activist

Something that infuriates me, is people who can’t be kind and respectful to animals. It’s obvious that you should treat them as you would like to be treated by others, but unfortunately, some idiots can’t understand that.

At the same time, I think you need to choose your own battles.

I will not treat someone that kills a mosquito the same way that I’d treat someone that abuses a dog, for example. I know the little insects have to survive like any other species. But if the way to survive is to suck your blood, leave your skin itching, and buzz around your ear while you are sleeping, I fully understand why someone would smash the thing with all their force.

They are what stops summer breaks from perfection!

However, if someone gets just as angry when a person kills a mosquito as if they were killing a cat or a rabbit. I can understand the principle behind it, but for me, it doesn’t really make sense.

Mosquito killers are an embarrassment

Animal rights activist Aymeric Caron, who is also a French TV presenter, says that mosquitoes suck blood from humans to collect protein for their eggs – and believes they should not be punished with death for doing so, reports Ladbible.

The 47-year-old also clarified that he believes that we should treat all species as equal – and therefore humans should “donate” their blood to mosquitoes.

But he added that Africa is an exception because you risk getting malaria over there.

This, of course, infuriated other animal rights activists.

It’s such an uphill battle to make people understand the consequences of consuming meat for the environment, how the animals suffer in factory farms, and the health risks that come with eating genetically modified animals.

Complaining about mosquitoes does nothing but take away the attention of the real problems that plague our world today.

According to the Independent, Caron also says that people who kill mosquitoes are an embarrassment because it’s just a mother trying to nourish her offspring.

As I said, animals should be treated with respect, but this is going too far. To say that people who kill mosquitoes are evil or an embarrassment I think is just silly – and counterproductive!
