Operation Rescue the RES!

My ex husband has a goat farm and on the goat farm is a stock tank and in the stock tank...according to the girls...are a bunch of pesky turtles that their dad is killing left and right. I don't know why he has to kill all the turtles, but the girls have rescued two baby Red Eared Sliders. I have one currently, and the other is in a holding pattern until I see my oldest child again.

I'm going to release both turtles into the wild soon back where they belong. I can't imagine killing a bunch of animals like that. Is there some reason why this man can't simply re-locate the turtles? Is there a good reason for killing them that I'm not aware of?

Just look at how cute this little guy is!

You know him better than most. Can't envisage killing anything but spiders, with a shoe from the saftey of a bathtub.

He has never been too caring about animals. I can't believe I was married to that that man for so long.

BWHAHAHAHA. Big tough Agent Smith has to stand in the bathtub to kill the wee spider.

Oh wait. He's got those killer black widows down there.

Never mind. Carry on. I'd have the handheld shower nozzle ready as a backup weapon too and probably be clinging to Agent Smith's head and screaming bloody murder. :-D

Yeah and don't forget the Funnel Web spider...now there is a spider to fear!

I'm afraid to google funnel web spider. They might have pictures.
They might show where the spider is naturally found.

I don't think I want to know!!!!!

If I don't know about them, they can't find me. Right????!!!!!

There is only one spider I have a phobia about. The Huntsman - hairy, about the size of your hand, although they frequently appear bigger to me :)

oh I wish. Cause if I was I'd be able to meet up with Sean someday.

Nope I'm hear in the states. MN actually.

If you're checking my IP address through sitemeter or some such, it never shows up accurately. I haven't the slightest idea why.

Even blogged about it awhile back.

As for the Huntsmen good grief get a gun!!!!! KAPOW!!!!!!
