We haven’t seen much of Christopher Walken since his appearance at the Tribecca Film Festival this year. I have to admit, I’m a huge fan of his quirky personality. I became overjoyed when I found out that he is supporting a new campaign with the Humane Society of the United States.
Christopher Walken wants people to be more aware of the animals that live around us. He wants us to try and keep them alive. He tells us to be a humane neighbor. I think that’s a good idea. I’d like to see what kind of ninja move he’d pull out if a squirrel ran up his pant’s leg. Okay J/K, Chris.
I don’t even like killing insects. My mom blames that on me seeing Charlotte’s Web when I was in elementary school. HA! I think I had this caring nature long before Charlotte’s Web, or it probably wouldn’t have affected me in the least.
Okay, I didn’t want to make this about my own weirdness, let us get back to Christopher Walken. As a spokesperson for the Humane Society, the campaign has these words, quote:
Due to urban development, we are losing wildlife habitat leading to increased wildlife encounters. This often ends badly for the animals, who are killed using inhumane methods
Here’s Christopher Walken in a public service announcement for humanesociety.org
In other words, lets not stomp the guts out of animals just because they came to our property when an apartment complex was built three blocks away.
It is possible to capture little critters and set them free elsewhere instead of killing them. This can be done with raccoons and other animals, but sometimes it can be dangerous. So the first thing I want to say is do not try to catch wild animals and cart them off to a lovely wooded area someplace – until you have a safe way of doing it.
There’s a chance of being mauled or catching rabies when dealing with wild mammals. I just want to put that out there. But otherwise, there are safe ways to trap “pesky” animals and set them free, but it requires a little common sense.
I like when celebrities use their clout to raise awareness on topics that are meant to help the overall well-being of our world. I know this stuff can get kind of boring, when you’re trying to read some good junk about about Christoper Walken. So, in closing, I will end this with a little Fatboy Slim, Christopher Walken, and a stuntman.
