- PETA has some had some off days, but their organization as a whole is good with a great purpose; preventing animal cruelty. Which I would certainly hope you support.
A good heart without a brain can cause a LOT of problems.
"PETA has written to the president and chief executive of Samsung Electronics Europe, In-Soo Kim, urging him to pull the online ad, which was created by The Viral Factory.
In the letter, written by PETA’s Erika Davis, the organisation claims that the use of sheepdogs is extremely stressful for sheep, which should not be treated as inanimate props.
Davis writes: "They [sheep] are sentient, intelligent and complex animals…Tormenting, harassing and scaring sheep to promote a product is unacceptable." Peta slams Samsung ad for cruelty to animals - advertising news - Campaign
"But now Peta - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals - is itself on the receiving end of angry words over its own treatment of animals after it emerged that the organisation put down 96 per cent of the animals handed into its American headquarters. Of 2,216 animals taken to its premises in Norfolk, Virginia, last year, 2,124 were put to sleep - almost six per day. Homes were found for just seven.
The high-profile charity, famous for its "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" campaigns, has euthanised more than 20,000 pets in the last decade, according to figures it has supplied to Virginia state officials.
Peta insists that homes could not be found for the dogs and cats, usually because they were in such poor health or because they were "unsocialised" and aggressive, usually because of bad treatment by their owners."

They want to eliminate purebred dogs, so no more Border Collies - but then, Border Collies are cruel herders...
Mao claimed good intentions in killing 50+ million Chinese. Claimed good intentions are not enough.
