I appreciate your response. Mind if I shuffle the parts around a little? It will make it easier for me to talk about.
What are you doing? How many animals have you sheltered and tried to find homes for? How about donating to FEMA, and perhaps then they could
afford to house animals longer?
Nah you just want an excuse to demonize them.
Please refer to the first two sentences of the OP
I've had four cats and a dog. They've all been picked up off the street or from
One cat I picked up was stranded on the median of a highway which was in the middle of a very aggressive demonstration. I just
opened the car door, swooped up the cat, and threw it into the back seat. "Thunderpaws" was a favorite of mine for years. And no I don't want to
demonize PETA, I thought my motivation was clear from the title and my writing. Of course, you have every right to believe I'm lying, but I don't
know why you would. I AM disappointed and saddened.
OK, now that the personal stuff is out of the way. . .
You seem to be asking two questions. One, what is society to do about the feral animal problem? I haven't thought out a solution to that, that's
not what the thread is about. And, two, what do I think PETA is supposed to do about the feral animal problem?
PETA is perfectly free to define it's own mission. It can announce to the world that it's just educational and will be handing out flyers, I don't
care. And I certainly wouldn't blame them for not saving strays.
In the same way, I wouldn't blame the National Organization for Women if they didn't put out a line of cosmetics to make women look prettier. Sure,
that would deal with women, but it's not what they want to do.
But my point through all of this, and my reason for putting it in this forum is that PETA is lying. I'm sad, disappointed, disillusioned, all sorts
of bad things. Couldn't PETA, at least, be a clean, uncorrupted organization?
