PeTA's Not So Ethical Treatment

P.E.T.A., or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has a lot of explaining to do.

It seems that two counties in North Carolina will stop handing over animals from shelters to Peta. Officials were shocked to learn that between 2001 - 2003 Peta had killed more than 6,100 domestic animals. In fact, the cats and dogs were turned over to Peta to help find homes for them.

This is the same company that raises large amounts of money for awareness by using celebrities in their ads claiming things like, "I'd rather show my buns than wear fur." or, "I'd rather go naked than wear fur." They also encourage people not to eat meat, as it's hurtful to kill animals for food.

I guess house cats are fine. In fact, two of the employees are facing charges for dumping the dead animals bodies in a near by shopping mall dumpster.

It doesn't take much to see the total hypocrisy of this group. Maybe now they can stay out of people's lives and crawl back in the hole they came from. And maybe celebrities will think twice about a company that talks out of both sides of their mouths.

Here kitty, kitty.

I never trusted that group. That is really wrong. How can they sleep at nigt knowing what their group stands for and what they are actually doing? Those 2 employees get what they deserve.

Tell ya what, PETA... you stop objectifying women in your ads, and I may consider what you're trying to say as a possibly valid point. But if you're gonna protect animals by turning women into toys, then I ain't listening.

It's too bad that the focus is only on the rotten apples. While Peta can be extrem at times, they have done ALOT for animals. I'd like to know more about the story before I hang a leash around their neck. And as for "turning woman into toys: we use sex to sell everything else, why not save some lives with it.
