PETA is always good for some for bonehead moves. If ever you feel like you've done something stupid, rest assured PETA has done something worse.

When I was a kid, a bunch PETA nuts came to the fair, and tried to open all the stalls in one of the barns. They didn't know that 2 adults always stayed overnight in each of the barns in case of emergency. PETA only got a few stalls open when the parents caught them.

I found out from one of the parents that one of the boneheads was trying to force my horse out of his stall. Yelling at him that at his age (32) they were trying to save him and give him a proper retirement. Everytime time they'd get him close to the stall door, he'd turn around and start eating his hay and fall asleep, LOL! Guess he thought his "retirement" home was just fine with him:)

I'm not generally a fan of PETA either. I contacted them recently about the Texas Hunt Lodge where people can pay to shoot domesticated exotic animals for sport, including Zebras and the sacred White Buffalo. :( They told me they don't deal with that kind of issue and to contact the HSUS. I was like, "Not what they deal with? What the hell do they deal with?" I wanted to contact them about the Omak Suicide Race, but I don't think it will matter. Makes me sad. :( In addition, the HSUS does not do enough. They can barely take care of dogs and cats, let alone livestock and exotics.
They did do this video though and you can't deny what is shown. The granddaughter of Seattle Slew in this video almost sent me into hysterics. I'm a major empath and to see that and know the pain she was feeling and still running was too much.

Oh gosh!
I used to show goats (dairy, pack, pygmy, meat, you name it!) and I have many a traumatic memory of crazy PETA people trying to open my goats pens at the fair. My mom sure told them off!

PETA scares me sometimes.

At fair one year they untied all of the beef and dairy steers(1500+ lbs each, rarely the friendliest animals on earth) and opened all the gates on the barn. Because "they were saving them from the humiliation of going through the auction to slaughter" These animals were raised for meat and were given good lives until then. Luckily they caught the steers before anyone got hurt and the fairgrounds are surrounded by a 10-12ft fence with barbed wire at the top. Ever since then at least 2 people have slept in the beef barn every night during the fair week. Our beef barn is completely gated and has gates that run from the barn to the show arena on show day, all steers are tied with both a halter and a neck rope. The only time they are not within gates is the day they are unloaded from the trailers and put in the barn for the week.

Also at one fair(not sure which one) people from PETA released all the horses(including some high dollar show horses) and were trying run them across a VERY busy freeway to 'freedom'(a single field on the other side of said freeway).

Not a big fan of these people
