You are correct actually. PeTA is a branch off from "Actors and Others for Animals". They were originally a good group. I was a member at one time...YEARS ago. But when they started going over the edge, I left.

And what about the two ads. One about "You mommy kills" and the other one geared towards teens with some one holding a bloody knife and the words "Question authority" under it? I have both of these in my computer if anyone is interested. They were both PeTA ads

I don't even mind the scare tactics.
It's their basic core values that worry me.

Well said I like that and will have to remember that. I will use it.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

I believe that some of the people that work for PETA have good intentions and some don't.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

You're probably right. But as an organization they have killed a ridiculous amount of animals. Perfectly healthy animals that would make great pets. I think if you believe in animal rights and want to better animals places in this world there are better ways to do it then joining PETA.

MN, They have to put the animals down because they bring in SOOO many animals.They save as many as they can and at least they are dying humanely instead of starving to death, which is probably the reason why PETA rescued them.

I am a 14 yr vegetarian and a former vegan. I do rescue for all sorts of animals, large and small. We used sexed semen for our cow, so we do not have bull calves that when sold will go to slaughter - lol! I mean, I am serious about animals being treated kindly and not thought of as food; and with all of that said, I am not a PETA supporter because I care more about human beings. They protest in ways that scare children and honestly, as a group, care more for animal welfare than the welfare of children. I cannot support of that mentality.
Animals are not humans, and people must come first. I like that PETA has been able to help animals, but so do other organizations without humanizing animals and animalizing people.
I think people do need to remember that may not have seen situations some PETA people have that the extreme mistreatment and torture of animals can and will cause extreme reactions in people that care so much, but usually, they, as a group, take it too far and are just to extreme.
I've seen situations that made me want to go "PETA" on the folks responsible, it is true.
At the end of the day, they are not a group I'd consider being a member of though.
They have done some good, but they could have done a lot more good and had a better public image if they would exercise better control and use balance.

In addition, sometimes, as mentioned above, their stance on euthanizing animals is way off track, as in the case of the dogs mistreated by Michael Vick.
