I was as shocked as you are about animal treatment when I saw that news story which is what made me investigate PETA.
I love animals so much that I just cannot resolve myself to kill that raccoon and possum that comes to ravage our trash bags on the back porch.
The last 2 cats I have had... one still alive and kicking, are strays that I took from the streets, both abandoned by former masters and both looking
for a place to live. The first one, Miss Silver, I fed her during summer time considering she really was neglected by her owners and the reason as to
why I didn't take her in sooner was because her owners were our direct condo neighbors. They moved out and let her to rot there!
So one cold rainy fall night, I went in search of her for it really was getting cold outside and found her on a balcony in a cardboard box trying to
stay out of the rain... the poor thing. Picked her up, put her inside my coat and brought her inside where she has been my faithful companion till
Maurice came around in 2006 looking for a home he can call his own. After 3 days of incessant "MEOW" in the hallway of the apartment building where
I used to live, one of the neighbors complained that if that cat were to wake him up again in the middle of the night (for Maurice do have an
exceptional loud meow) he would make chop suey out of him. That same day, he came around, Meow for some food and water, opened the door and he walked
Now Miss Silver was another matter, turned out that she was hyper thyroid which in the end, she ended up costing me a pretty penny over the years, not
to mention time and constraint for she needed to be administered 2 pills a day which meant a heck less lot of liberty of movement for me but it
didn't matter... I took her in and she was now my responsibility.
Back to PETA
I was utterly LIVID when I found this out about them! Needless to say that I canceled my membership with them, returned all them pre glued
envelope addy. How can they claim animal cruelty, print comic books for kids indoctrination claiming that "you love to play ball with your dog" when
mommy is killing animals by wearing fur when PETA will not give a second thought to euthanize that fun loving dog.
PETA is all about freeing the animals and this is why, when looking closely at them that it becomes clear that they also want to eradicate from the
face of the earth such domesticated animals for if left unchecked in the wild, dogs and cats will become a serious problem.
Their goals are unreal. For they will show how cruelly hogs, cows, chickens... are slaughtered but then go about saying that everyone ought a be a
vegan. SO what then, everyone becomes a vegan, great for PETA for their goal has been achieved but what of the animals? Chicken will keep multiplying,
so will hogs, cows and whatever one can find on supermarket shelves, free and unrestrained in the wild? So what then? animal control like they do so
graciously with cats and dogs in their shelters? Yes, it would be lovely to be able to live side by side with all of them free animals but this is not
the garden of eden nor utopia, it is the real world where hogs in the wild becomes feral again and very dangerous.
PETA had funds to take care of those shelters and provide better care of those familiars instead of providing them with the needle while I had no
funds what so ever to take care of Miss Silver and took care of her for long as I could till her passing away.
PETA and it's followers do not take in account what were to happen if all them animals were allowed to roam free and does not provide an answer as to
what to do next when their population are left unchecked, free to reproduce in the wild nor the consequence or the repercussion to the human race.
