@Lightlyseared – Slaughterhouse worker? I’m sure animal lovers everywhere are fighting over that position.

@shad the question was a job working with animals nothing about being an animal lover.

@Ls – I think the assumption is reasonable. Most people want to work with animals because they love them. And I did notice the distinction. I just wanted to point out the humor of my assumption/

Course, now that I’ve explained it, nothing there is funny.

ON TOPIC! Have you heard of horse massage therapy? I hear it makes good money.
