I can agree with some of the ideas, and whatnot of PETA. I mean, we don't want people being allowed to treat animals like crap. But sorry, my kids ARE more important, and I will put any human (well almost any...) above an animal.
There are some things that PETA brings to peoples attention that we really need to know about. And I am very much against factory farming. I am not against farming, or meat, but factory farming, hell yeah. I've seen it forst hand, its bad. But people who treat their animals fairly, since those animals will be giving their lives, are not doing anything wrong.
I feed my ferrets meat, and plan to raise my own breeders. PETA would not like this, but if I feed kibble then I am not helping the factory farming issue at all. My mice are treated amazing before they are dinner. And their deaths are very quick. Dax can dispatch and eat a mouse in less time then it takes for them to die from CO2 (which the the typical method of killing feeder mice).
