I don't see anything really wrong with the letter.
You intend on killing animals, but think it's wrong if they nearly kill you?
I've never hunted, and will never support PETA in any way. PETA claims to be an animal rights group, and they slaughter thousands of animals a year with their "shelter" program.
I understand that a lot of the animals won't get adopted, and will end up euthanized. But to promote yourself as a pro animal organization, and euthanize them on the spot is wrong.
Do you honestly believe that all the people working for PETA are part of some nefarious organization - that oddly abuses and destroys the animals they profess to care about?
Is that a reasonable assessment of how you see PETA?

I hope you'll understand that this isn't an attack, or an argument. There's a pretty strong campaign being waged against PETA - it's easy to make information look any way you want it to look
In the interest of denying some ignorance - I'd ask you to think about the numbers of abused and abandoned animals that exist in this country - I wonder what you would recommend?
I'd ask that you read this information from PETA's site if you're interested in understanding the other side of all this. It's not pretty - but it is honest
Why We Euthanize
Educate yourself. There are not enough homes for all these animals - they will never be adopted most of them, and some people are doing a thankless job trying to manage an impossible situation as humanely as they're able
There are always bad seeds in every organization - lines get crossed now and then
It doesn't take away from the fact that most of these people are addressing a situation most people choose not to think about

But at the same time they're advocating stopping hunting, so the animals that are already overpopulated can reach higher than ever population levels (deer), stopping fishing (some of which I agree with, because a number of fish populations need to recover), and stopping just about everything that could possibly harm an animal in the wild.
Am I understanding this right!?!
She went out hunting bears. The Bear bit her. And she's concerned because someone told her to think about it from the Bears point of view??
BWA HA HA HA
The Bear should have bit her head off.
