Fine, here is some proof right from the source (from HSUS and PETA):
We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding ...One generation and out. We have no problems with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding.
- Animal People News (May 1, 1993)
Arson, property destruction, burglary, and theft are ‘acceptable crimes’ when used for the animal cause.
- PETA co-founder Alex Pacheco lists the “acceptable” tactics to fight for animal rights, Associated Press (January 3, 1989)
My whole goal is for humans to have as little contact as possible with animals.

In the end, I think it would be lovely if we stopped this whole notion of pets altogether.
- Newsday (February 21, 1988)
Humans have grown like a cancer. We're the biggest blight on the face of the earth.
- Washingtonian magazine (February 1, 1990)
To me, it doesn't sound like PETA just wants us to be Vegan. (Hell, I have a few anti-PETA Vegan friends)
They want all animals to be "free" and think humans are a cancer.
They say that they wouldnt support animal testing even if it cured AIDS...I wonder if they'd support vivisection on humans if it cured HYPP, Lethal White, Leukemia in cats...
