Let's see: the City does everything possible to attract and enable homeless, beggars, and street
peddlers who compete with major stores that pay rent, insurance, payroll, and taxes etc.. The best
of the street people create no problems at all, and may work at recycling. The worst of them use the
streets and parks as a toilet, so do their pets, they create rat infested camps, and expose others to
their disgarded IV needles.
The WOOF program is another feel good welfare program that misses the mark: too many pets remain unsterilized. It's not fair to the animals to have them born into a world where they have no
good prospect of being loved and cared for. Each day the USA kills hundreds or thousands of abandoned pets. If we want to make a difference - forced sterilization is the key.
