NFL  > General NFL  > Patrick Willis is not a murderer.

The uproar over him killing a snake on his property is absolutely ridiculous.

Killed a few (yes more than 3) diamondbacks on my property. My dogs have killed who knows what over the years, probably more than a few snakes, birds & whatever they did not like.


My brain is in pain after reading that article on Willis.

What have we become as a society when we put up with homelessness, poverty (etc. etc. etc. etc.) and start getting all upset over a dead snake?

Well, if PETA can get upset over insects (Gov Christie), I guess they can get upset over reptiles (Willis). They'll have to change their acronym to PETE. People for the Ethical Treatment of Everything.

Snakes have rights too.

If Willis made spicey hot chili with the snake that he killed then I would not have any problems with this.

I once shot a deer for being there.

It tasted great.

Some folks like the taste of cat meat. But to be fair, the majority of those folks don't know they're eating cat meat.

Y'all know its true. In a movie where people die, you get over it and move on to the next scene, but when an animal gets killed it haunts you.

You do know that peta is a terrorist organization. They blow up labs in some warped line of thinking defending rabbits and mice.

Lived in South Korea for a year and about 20 minutes away was a restaurant that specialized in Dog.

The Koreans thought it very funny when westerners that ate beef would start gagging over the thought of eating Fido.

I mean I like my animals (dogs as pets and cows medium rare), but maybe we need a little perspective?

Dog meat is popular among Asians.

Maybe Pat will make a belt. That would be a cool story. Not, "Willis murdered a snake" but what if it was a cool story like, "Willis puts snakeskin to use by making a belt!"
