I know this isn't specifically about PETA,but I have to share this,in case people don't know!
...Hypocrisy is the mother of all credibility problems, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has it in spades," states the new anti-PETA
website. "While loudly complaining about the 'unethical' treatment of animals by restaurant owners, grocers, farmers, scientists, anglers and
countless other Americans, the group has its own dirty little secret.
..."PETA kills animals. By the thousands.
..."From July 1998 through the end of 2003, PETA killed over 10,000 dogs, cats and other 'companion animals' ¿ at its Norfolk, Virginia,
headquarters. That's more than five defenseless animals every day. Not counting the dogs and cats PETA spayed and neutered, the group put to death
over 85 percent of the animals it took in during 2003 alone. And its angel-of-death pattern shows no sign of changing."
...PETA could refrain from euthanizing so many animals, the Center for Consumer Freedom claims, but it would cost the organization more money to do
..."PETA raked in nearly $29 million last year in income, much of it raised from pet owners who think their donations actually help animals," said
Martosko. "Instead, the group spends huge sums on programs equating people who eat chicken with Nazis, scaring young children away from drinking
milk, recruiting children into the radical animal-rights lifestyle, and intimidating businessmen and their families in their own neighborhoods."
...The site also hammers PETA for giving "tens of thousands of dollars to convicted arsonists and other violent criminals," including the North
American Earth Liberation Front ¿ "an FBI-certified 'domestic terrorist' group."
...PETAKillsAnimals.com further takes the group to task for its publicity campaign targeting children. One piece of kid-targeted PETA literature, the
site says, tells small children: "Your Mommy Kills Animals!" ...
If all this is true,...??? I don't know. But I wouldn't judge them at face value without researching them more vigorously. For any of you who may
donate to PETA,that is.
