Yesterday CAPS (Captive Animals Protection Society) revealed on Facebook its outrage when Soper Hall refused to back down when faced with their anti-reindeer campaign. Soper Hall have reindeer, a domesticated breed of this species of deer that have a long history of being bred and farmed in the UK, booked for their Christmas Fair. In an action the radical group called "arrogant" Soper Hall, who called the "concerns" voiced by CAPS as "ridiculous", made this factually accurate assessment of CAPS:
"I imagine the complainers don't eat meat, never wear leather and object to horse racing".This is very true of CAPS who notably do not refute this statement in their Facebook post. Why should they? They have admitted to being a vegan group and are in opposition to all these other practices speculated on by Soper Hall.
CAPS are actively opposed to the use of animals in any form of entertainment and, being supporters of the animal rights movement, have an agenda that will probably extend to the entire concept of animal usage. That means pet ownership. CAPS have campaigned and endorsed animal rights groups who have not hidden their desire to see the total eradication of domesticated animals, including "non-human animal companions" as they prefer to call what we know as "pets".
