PETA Kills Far More Animals Than Michael Vick

Upon reading this, my blood pressure shot up a few points. As if I needed another reason to dislike the PETA people. They spend all their time pissing people off instead of going to work or championing a cause that someone capable of conscious thought would benefit from. If I know anyone personally who supports PETA or is a PETA member, you would do well to never let me find out about it, because we're going to argue and you're probably going to go home in tears.



Body Count For Animal "Rights" Group Reaches 14,479; Group Has Walk-In Freezer For Dead Puppies

WASHINGTON -- While People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) protests the National Football League today over Michael Vick's dog-fighting indictment, the animal "rights" group is ignoring its own sordid puppy-killing operation, the Center for Consumer Freedom said today. Public records released by the State of Virginia show that PETA itself has killed 14,479 dogs and cats since 1998, including 90 percent of the animals it took in for "adoption" in 2005. And PETA is presently more than 3 months overdue to report its 2007 numbers."

It's astonishing but true," said Center for Consumer Freedom Director of Research David Martosko. "PETA itself kills helpless, adoptable animals by the thousands out of sheer inconvenience. Why anyone continues to take this bunch of hypocrites seriously is beyond me."

Documents relating to PETA's massive animal-killing program can be found on the Internet at www.PETAkillsAnimals.com. In sworn testimony during the January 2007 animal-cruelty trial of two PETA employees, a PETA manager acknowledged that the organization has a walk-in freezer for the purpose of storing dead pets. She also acknowledged that PETA contracts with a Norfolk-area crematory service to dispose of the dead bodies, which measure over a ton each month.

Martosko continued: "PETA's president acknowledges that her group could 'become a no-kill shelter overnight.' But that would mean the group could no longer afford to spend millions of dollars on cheap publicity stunts, to say nothing of harassing pet food companies, restaurants, and medical researchers."

Another PETA employee faces grand larceny charges in southern Virginia, related to the alleged 2006 theft of a hunting dog and its radio-tracking collar. PETA has not yet indicated whether the dog in question was slated to be put to death.

Thanks for the comment, but I'm not the author of this article. I've expressed my views about Vick in other posts.

You shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet. You should also realize that some groups will take things out of context for their own benefit.

What is the Humane Society and PETA to do with all of the animals that they rescue and they can't find homes for? Let them go into the wild to be run over by cars or caught by predators? They have to euthanise the animals after a certain period of time of keeping them, duh. They do this due to overcrowding of rescued animals and lack of resources, and they do it in the most humane way possible.

You should also read more into who is spreading the disinformation and falsities about PETA.
About them

(in italics below the article)
Look closer near the bottom and take a guess at who they represent.
... people that have interests in slaughtering animals themselves to serve in restaurants. PETA has protested against the inhumane slaughtering and farming practices of meat-factories, and so this group wants to discredit PETA.

There's your lesson of the day in critical reading.
