I think it would be rather amusing if the boards they use in their own arrays were nicked from illegal board lines found in the RA

What's pretty silly about that is everything they found in their buckets could be found and picked up with no stress to the animal if they took the time to understand the animals and flipped the boards and the right time/temperature/weather conditions of day.
Why bother when you can trap an animal in a plastic bucket so it can't get away to a needed cool down temperature during the hot absorbing heat of the day, huh? ...how humane and frickn brilliant
