Can't agree with you more Kayty. They give people who really care about animals' welfare a bad name by being crazy, illogical and sometimes even causing harm to animals. There are environmental activism groups that do this kind of thing too, very frustrating for those of us actually trying to initiate change in the real world... *sigh*
