Once upon a time PETA started off with excellent intentions.... outlawing those cruel snapjaw traps for trapping... educating the public to animal abuse. ( Mr Vick never got the message, did he?)
But it became an organisation of extremest and nutters. I have seen a lot of the stuff they put out about the dairy business, and it's either incorrect, incomplete, twisted, or flat out bull cookies. I'll debate ANYBODY on this one. Bring it on.
I have to rate them below politicians on the evolutionary scale.
For one thing, throwing paint or animal blood or someones fur coat??? Now, I do not agree with wearing fur. No longer, anyway. We don't need it for survival.( Leather is ok - it's a final by product of the beef and dairy business. Use the whole animal if their life is sacrificed for me.) But this is stupid. The insurance company has to shell out the coast to REPLACE the coat. Yes, more fuzzy little animals died because of their actions.
I also don't agree with spraying chemicals into a dogs eyes to see if it burns so that we'll know if our shampoo, makeup, etc is safe. Don't we have enough convicted convicts??? And how many **** brands of eyeliner do we need?
Spiking trees? Yes, I agree I would like to save an endangered species, but now we have damaged/dying trees and lumber staff with missing eyes, fingers, etc.
They remind me of a pack of spoiled little children who act out because they can't get their way.
