Typical ploy with PETA, anything to get their name out. It would fit with their ideals, they do not want ANYONE to own ANY animals at all, so in their warped way, this is getting rid of animals faster.
Just an interesting side note, today the CEO of HSUS(humane society of the united states) has publically admitted (what alot of us have known for years)that they do NOT HAVE ANY animal shelters in the united states, AT ALL. All the money they bring in is for operating costs, campaigns, and to stay working alongside their best friend PETA.
This is HSUS, not the american humane society that does help all animals.
People donate to HSUS all the time thinking they are helping poor animals, when in fact HSUS is like PETA, they do not want you to have animals, they push ridiculous pet bans, etc.
