‘Animal Rights Activist’ Urges People to Let Mosquitoes Drink Their Blood

Share on Facebook

The “Animal Rights” movement has been gaining more and more momentum, with a growing number of people deciding that they want to choose a more “ethical” way of living life. The activists pushing this idea forward always have a lot to say when it comes to standing their ground.

While I am all for animal rights, activists have also been known to say and do some pretty weird things in order to raise awareness about the things that they are passionate about. But, hey, whatever gets people talking! And this particular French activist managed to do just that. He had some pretty odd reasons as to why we should all let mosquitos drink our blood… Yes, you read that correctly.

Stick around as we unfold the full story, including the reasons as to why he believes this.

I mean, if you feel really passionately about the issue, it only makes sense to go big or go home, right? But some of these people have taken things a little too far…

Pictures such as this one have been circulating all over the internet and the public seems to be divided as to how they should react. Some support the issue, while others reject it. Some of us, however, are just slightly creeped out…

“Direct Action Everywhere” is an Animal Rights group that decided that the best way to help animals was to raid a slaughterhouse and chain their heads to a slaughter machine. That can never be good, can it?

Sometimes, things don’t always go to plan. After releasing some of the ducks that were trapped in pens, the group decided that they would enter the actual slaughterhouse and chain their heads to the machines in order to make a statement.

The slaughter line started to move, taking the activists with them. In the horrible video, you can hear them screaming as they move closer to the knives.

In an interview with ABC7 News, Thomas Chiang, who had his head dragged into a pole said: “It was almost decapitating my head from my neck. I was feeling my life leave my body, as I was struggling to get out of that lock.”

However, I don’t think that they’ll be storming any more slaughterhouses any time soon. Keep scrolling to see the shocking video, but do be warned, it contains some graphic content.

In Australia, the Federal Parliament has introduced tougher penalties for activists who break into farmhouses illegally, including up to 5 years in prison while other kinds of protesters are looking up to 600 dollars worth of fines.

Because they feel so strongly about the issue at hand, most continue to raise awareness, despite the consequences looming over their heads.

Recently, a French activist has hit the headlines for his comments about mosquitos and why we should allow them to drink our blood.

Instead, we should allow them to take “blood donations,” as he likes to call it.

As reported by the Independent, the insects apparently want to gain protein for their eggs so that they can breed the next generation of blood-suckers.

But he claimed that it is “embarrassing for anti-specists who realize they are being attacked by a mother who is trying to nourish her future children.”

Even though killing mosquitos is not acceptable in the eyes of many Animal Rights activists, there are some scenarios in which it is unavoidable. He claims that, if you live in, or are traveling to, Africa, you’re allowed to kill mosquitos due to the risk of catching Malaria.

He also advised that people should wash regularly to keep the insects away.

According to Treated.com, Africa, India, and parts of South America are widely affected by the disease too, but if you’re sticking by Caron’s rules, you’re not allowed to kill them in those countries. I can see some pretty important flaws in this theory…

Female mosquitos use the sharp tip of their long mouths to pierce a blood vessel and draw blood out. However, this is the problematic part. As it is doing so, the mosquito releases saliva, which contains a harmful anticoagulant, back into the body.

So, according to Caron, we should give them the chance to suck the protein out of us so that they can feed their unborn children. He even claimed that he allowed himself to be bitten in France multiple times because he felt like he was helping them in some way. But, in Africa, it was a different story. He killed them there.

A British animal-protection group has spoken out against him, saying that it was “an unhelpful distraction” from the real issues that we must focus on.

I think it’s safe to say that we will not be allowing mosquitos, or any other kind of insect, to feed off of our blood. As unethical as we may seem in Caron’s eyes, we’d rather stay disease-free. There are more helpful ways of protecting animals, but maybe don’t do what these guys did in the video you’re about to see…

What have we learned from this? That there are plenty of safer ways to stand up for what you believe in. As ridiculous as some Animal Rights activists can be, turns out, meat-eaters can be just as bad when preaching about the things that they believe in. Did you hear about the guys that ate raw squirrel to prove a point? Keep reading for more on that…
