Everyone is familiar with PETA. If you’re one the “nut and berry” types or a full fledged carnivore like myself the organization and it’s methods makes it hard not to notice.
Those of you that have stumbled through “the Cavity” for any length of time realize I could easily live without PETA. In fact I have been an advocate of the IRS administering lethal injections to it’s tax exempt status. But little did I know just how duplicitous PETA and it’s cult like followers are.
I know now, and so do you: PETA Kills Animals
Hypocrisy is the mother of all credibility problems, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has it in spades. While loudly complaining about the “unethical” treatment of animals by restaurant owners, grocers, farmers, scientists, anglers, and countless other Americans, the group has its own dirty little secret.
PETA kills animals. By the thousands.
From July 1998 through the end of 2003, PETA killed over 10,000 dogs, cats, and other “companion animals” — at its Norfolk, Virginia headquarters. That’s more than five defenseless animals every day. Not counting the dogs and cats PETA spayed and neutered, the group put to death over 85 percent of the animals it took in during 2003 alone. And its angel-of-death pattern shows no sign of changing.
For those that are skepticle by nature, here’s the proof, in pdf format. PETA claims it engages in outrageous media-seeking stunts “for the animals.” But which animals? Carping about the value of future two-piece dinners while administering lethal injections to puppies and kittens isn’t ethical. It’s hypocritical — with a death toll that PETA would protest if it weren’t their own doing.
