I DID happen to read something about PETA euthanizing 90% of the animals in a shelter. One of their purposes is to eliminate animals as pets.

I'm my spare time I ride dragons and runners, practice my Harper skills, talk to dolphins and hang with MasterHarper Robinton.

Because that'll get the point across. /sarcasm.

Have you seen what they say about horse riding? I went onto the Peta forum and found the horse riding thread, and some of the things people say are, simply put, ignorant.

Quote:
But a newborn horse? In my oppinion human should leave alone them and set them free.
Where do you set a foal free in the wild? Around here, the horse would either die before it was found, or sent straight back to the barn.

Quote:
Yeah horses love it. And the horse told you this with his own mouth I'm sure. Let someone jump on your back and kick you in the ribs and yell GIDDYUP and make you carry his fat ___ around while you do all the work.

Horse-back riding is slavery.
Ugh. These are people on the Peta forum. That last one really gets me.

I'm just not a fan of them in general.

The animal shelter here in town kills over 90% of the animals they get buy PETA has nothing to do with that one. Actually millions of dogs and cats are killed each year accross the country that PETA has nothing to do with.

In general I'm not fond of PETA but then I'm not fond of the NRA and their extreame veiws either. But I know members of both groups who are very nice people.

Better dead than fed, PETA says

There is one of the many articles. The one posted is by the San Francisco Chronicle

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

Peta found homes for 15% While the SPCA was able to find homes for 73%. Kinda ridiculous

Im all for peta,greenpeace etc because they get things done.
They don't just sit around and think "oh what can I do"
They do it.
Im all for animal rights and I don't see why they should get treated the way they do for your pleasure.

I worked at the largest rendering plant in the upper midwest, once a month we got a full truck load of dead dogs and cats to grind up and render. They didn't come from PETA
