Another Casualty of Plant Closures in Ontario

Pepper and Sammy are paid by the taxpayers of Ontario in room, board and veterinary care. These “mice-control technicians,” as one bureaucrat called them, are the reason there is no rodent problem at the Ontario Tree Seed Plant in Angus, Ont., about 120 kilometres north of Toronto.

The cats are soon to be fired, however. The government will shutter the plant next September.

    If they belonged to a union and could vote, they would still have a job.

      That’s how the little African wildcat got domesticated in the first place. They came in from the wild to go after the rats and mice that were eating the grain(seeds) that the Egyptians had painstakingly stored. The little cats were carnivores. The Egyptians were so impressed they treated the little killers like royalty and elevated them to the status of gods (Bast),

        We live in a rural area. Pest Control people who know their stuff are (almost) treated like gold around here! Our latest problem pest-wise is possums – ugly, rat-like marsupials who migrated north from the USA. Horrible ugly things. And a drag to rid your property of. I enjoy nailing ’em with a pellet rifle.

          If they’re outside and not in your veg. garden, what harm are they causing to warrant being shot with a pellet gun.

          Opossums are omnivores and survive by eating a variety of foods. The
          primary sources of sustenance are small rodents, insects, worms, slugs
          and snails, frogs and birds. Additionally, opossums eat vegetables,
          berries, nuts, fruit, garbage, pet food and bird seed.http: //homeguides.sfgate.com/possums-eat-dangerous-81806.html

          You should be careful what you kill. Possums may be ugly little critters but they happen to eat Lyme Disease carrying ticks.

      Ours have established a little mouse graveyard at the back of our property. They prefer dining on poached sole. 😉

    What a handsome cat! Speaking of which, we’ve not seen Pip of late, BCF. I trust our beloved icon pussycat is cuddled up safe and secure in your secret lair? Show us some Pip, BCF.

    Cats rule!

    • Blacksmith

      Agreed, I thought that was a handsome cat and apparently well fed too.

    • Santa Pip only comes out when all the kittens are asleep to leave presents of toys and cat nip! 🙂

    Liberals don’t care about native Canadian trees – which are probably xenophobic, racist and opposed to diversity and multi-culti. They also don’t care about cats (or you and I), everybody and everything is merely collateral damage because Wynne needs money.

    • ontario john

      Wynne has run out of human jobs to destroy, now she has to resort to the animal kingdom.

    This is an utter CATastrophe! I do hope they can apply for unemployment compensation to keep them off the streets!
