Are people really this stupid?

Back to normal, then, after a day of non-ranting yesterday, I have to ask, are people really this fucking stupid?

The BBC News website reports that fans of Steven Irwin are prime suspects in the mutilation of ten stingrays that have been found dead on Melbourne beaches with their tails cut off (full story here).

What kind of stupid cunt would do something like that? It's ironic, really, how we should hear of this today. Five years ago, we were hearing news of ignoramuses in the United States taking revenge for the WTC attacks by killing Sikhs and Hindus.

People are ignorant fucks.

And to take "revenge" on a whole slew of animals simply because one happened to defend itself in what it perceived (albeit wrongly) as an attack... Well, that really takes the biscuit.

And what's the sting in the tail here, if you'll pardon my poor taste? Steve Irwin would be fucking appalled.

Thanks to Red for bringing this story to my attention and letting me steal it for my own blog!

Bad as this is it is probably only the work of one or two nutters who seem to have no idea about what motivated Steve Irwin, or his work as a naturalist.

The stingrays were entitled to a fair trial, at least.

Complete Numpties the lot of them.

How fucking stupid can you be to get revenge on an animal?

There really is no lower level to stupidity

I wonder how brave they would have been in their lust for revenge if Steve had been killed by a crocodile?

What a bunch of fuckwits. I was going to say I wonder if they ever actually watched his programmes or listened to the message he gave. But I'm guessing the answer is no, because any one that bloody stupid would have trouble working out a television set.

My thounghts exactly. I was astounded when I heard of this and thought it was some daft rumour. 'Turning in his grave' springs to mind.

Unbelievable, as if this is going to bring him back and as you quite rightly said, Steve would not have condoned this behaviour.

Ridiculous, but unfortunately not all surprising.

I agree...he'd be turning in his freshly dug grave.

Stupid people will use any "reason" to do downright stupid and cruel things.

Yes, people are this stupid - at least some people are.

WTF?!!!! These people need to register where they live, like the sex-crime offenders. I need to know if they live near me. How embarassing!

We don't have stingrays in the UK. But we should go out and kill a few skate or a plaice, because they have that look about them. You know: flat, eyes on top, long thin tales.

I'm not a racist.

I have a friend called Ray. He's been in hiding these past few days - that's no life for a fully-grown, and indeed innocent, man...

Perhaps Trudie Styler is about to become another Yoko One too.
