Them, it only does not make sense to you because you are not a member of that fine organization and you do not know the secret hand shake yet.
Once you join all this will be crystal clear to you and it will not seem near so .... WRONG.

Considering that cats are obligate carnivores, subjecting them to a vegan diet means you're condemning them to a slow, agonizing death.

But I guess that's okay, since they won't be 'enslaved' by your 'cruel tyranny' for very long.

Alright I left for awhile and am now back but just to learn ;) and you guys have certainly opened my eyes about PETA! I used to think they were a bit out there but otherwise a good group but GEEZ!!! letting peoples' dogs loose and telling children they are murderers?! what a bunch of crazies!!!! :(

I had no clue they did those things...thanks for enlightening me!

Yep Hoofprints, they do all those things and more.

They also have ties to ALF (Animal Liberation Front), which is nothing more than a true terrorist group. Violence, destruction, and murder are all on ALF's agenda in order to 'liberate' animals from their 'abusive' owners.

You don't have to be pro slaughter to be anti PETA!

PETA is not actively involved in ending horse slaughter. They are not running any campaigns, ads or member campaigns. There are no print mailings, no press and have not organized any efforts on horse slaughter. Nada. My understanding (though not confirmed) was that HSUS cut a deal with them to stay out of the horse slaughter issue. If so, that was a smart move because they would do more harm than good although they were responsible for shutting down the largest horse slaughter house in the US – AmFram (?) but that was many years before the organized efforts to end horse slaughter began.

The only thing I’ve seen from PETA was the Japan video which was worthless. A very small number of our horses go to Japan – 192 last year. IMO, the video did not expose anything. It was a Disney movie compared to the US, Mexico and Canada plants. A rescue is connected with the folks in Japan and when their stud duty is over, they contact him and he brings the horses home. If anything, it did more harm in possibly ruining a good relationship with Japan on bringing the horses home.

I’m by no means defending PETA. They are too over the top and are viewed as “crazies”. But to blame PETA for the efforts underway is not correct. They have not been involved in anything - at least the last 5 years that I've been involved.

Yah, and they started a campaign that went for awhile, including billboards.
Telling kids to "drink beer instead of milk" because it hurt the cows to milk them.

They stand at dog shows and hand out flyers telling about how cruel we are showing our dogs...Follow hunters into the field to scare the animals away...
Better not do that in Wyoming, they are likely to get shot and never seen again.

PETA is involved in anything that will eventually stop humans enjoying animals in any capacity. Whether they are splashing it on their website or plastering it on billboards or rodeos or wherever they can,or keeping quiet and pushing in the background, PETA is trying to stop us from enjoying our animals.

To BrucieBrown, go and look at the ILPH website at their horses for rehoming, they have 232 horses up for adoption in four centres across the UK, most of them are unrideable or youngsters. So many people are struggling to rehome rideable horses and these horses are taking up room in the rescue centres. I've been looking round the rescues recently, not a single one has less than 10 horses in at the moment and that's the smaller ones.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

Virginia may be on the east coast, but I live in an area where harassing hunters may invoke the SSS method of getting rid of PETA idjits.

Not condoning or even encouraging that kind of behaviour, just letting folks know that the veneer of civilization is very thin in certain places.
