Government Hates Efficiency: Woman Arrested For Rescuing Pets During Hurricane

Where would we be if the government wasn’t around to stop kind ladies rescuing animals from deadly hurricanes?

Tammie Hedges, a North Carolina resident and founder of Crazy’s Claws N Paws animal rescue, was charged with practicing veterinary medicine without a license for taking in 27 dogs and cats to prevent them from becoming sick or dying during Hurricane Florence.

“We were trying to help abandoned animals,” Hedges told reporters. “A group of us got together to do something to help those animals. [That’s] why we opened our building to them, so they’d have a safe dry place to go until their owners returned to get them.”

While caring for the animals, some of whom were sick, she reportedly administered amoxicillin and a topical antibiotic ointment. Authorities also accuse her of soliciting a donation of tramadol, a prescription painkiller used on pets. Prior to arresting and charging the woman, the Wayne County animal control office pressured her to hand over the animals, threatening to get a warrant if she failed to do so. She complied but was arrested and charged afterward despite following their orders.

Despite the local government’s actions in this case, what Hedges did was the action of a concerned animal care worker who simply did not have any access to veterinary clinics or hospitals in the middle of a hurricane.

Speaking to reporters, she said that if animal control had left the animals at her temporary rescue center, she could have a veterinary come to her place later. But during the hurricane, “vets were closed,” she explained.

“During a state of emergency, you’re not going to find anybody open. I did what I’m supposed to do. I’m not about to let an animal be in pain and run a fever. When I have the availability and the supplies to help them, I’m going to do it.”

Market Vs. Government: When Efficiency Is Punished

The private market, encompassed by countless private persons who are also members of their communities, is better equipped to answer to emergencies than the government.

When tragedy strikes, neighbors and small business owners get first-hand knowledge of what their communities are experiencing. In the meantime, government offices shut down, including those tasked with helping in emergencies.

If Wayne County animal services were genuinely worried about the animals being abandoned because of the hurricane, they would have worked around the clock to find animals in need to take them in, but that’s not what happened. As a matter of fact, another local government-run animal shelter threatened to euthanize all unadopted animals before the hurricane hit, making it clear that, to the government, the well being of the animals has little to do with their actions.

Efficiency in the private market is often seen as a threat to the government, and individuals like Hedges are punished as a result. After all, if you dare to cross the government by helping those in need, how will officials justify the implementation of policies that keep us chronically dependent on the government?

  1. I don’t know whether or not you folks do your own reporting on articles like this, but if you do, please take this pledge:

    Never be satisfied with running an article explaining how one or more unidentified, un-named bureaucrats oppressed some named citizen victim. Instead, root out the actual names of the totalitarians in each case, and publish them for all to see.

    The standard of social civility today is apparently to refuse to serve people and/or hound them out of restaurants, churches, and retail establishments for having committed offenses abhorrent to your beliefs. We lovers of freedom deserve to have our very own list of oppressors who deserve to be shamed and shunned. There are way more of us than there are of them.

  2. The message of the Good Samaritan from the Bible is clearly not accepted by bureaucrats, i.e. government employees cannot be Christians as that conflicts with the simple truth that government is commie/socialist/atheistic or Satanic. And remember this: Politics is violence no matter the make, model or flavor and yet people still persist in voting. Go figure

    Politics is a false god. When people worship false god-politics, they get disasters of wars, recessions, inflation and taxation (murders, economic ruin, theft of wages, debt slavery, welfare “statism” based on looting A to satisfy B and extortion).

    Read Lysander Spooner’s No Treason No. 6, The Constitution of No Authority. And then check out The No State Project by Marc Stevens on YouTube where he asks: What factual evidence do you, judge, prosecutor, politician, IRS agent or anyone, have that the constitution and law apply to me just because I am physically present in some state such as commie/socialist Democrat dictatorship corruptifornia? It doesn’t exist and never has else we would be stinkin’ slaves on the plantation state run by masters/politicians and their overseers/judges/ enforcers in the “land of the free and home of the brave.” Why weren’t the Spooner and Stevens points taught in government schools? Conflict of interest? Prejudice? How diabolically ironic is that? Factual evidence would come in the form of a sworn affidavit of truth stating what, when, where, why, how and by whom one was made subject to the jurisdiction thereof. It was never brought up in any school I attended. I have never heard any MSM commentator produce the “factual evidence.” I have asked judges in court and on record to provide the factual evidence and not one of the six I have challenged could produce factual evidence thus failing to provide proof of jurisdiction.

    I recommend Ted R. Weiland’s books:
    Bible Law vs. The United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective
    Law & Kingdom: Their Relevance Under the New Covenant

    If Christian Americans ever expect God to fulfill his half of 2 Chronicles 7:14, they must first repent of their national idolatry their love affair with the humanistic, pluralistic, polytheistic, and antichristian United States Constitution.

    I also recommend the Jehovah Witness website publications:

    The hate speaking, commie/socialist, Democrat, SJWs, snowflakes, MSM and politicians are clearly unethical, immoral. They play the emotions game but most people know that the first casualty of emotion is reason, logic and morality.

    Take a look at how Milton Friedman explains to Phil Donahue the fallacy of commie/socialism. This video should be viewed by all and then asked why they are voting for any politician that is commie/socialist.
