Priorities

PETA takes an awfully heavy toll on animal life

A news story emerging out of Britain today paints a not-so-rosy picture of PETA's operations in that country.

According to figures released today, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has collected up to five animals per day at its offices, and subsequently helped find homes for a grand total of seven of them. In a full year.

The rest of these animals -- 2,124 of them -- were put down.

This means that PETA has a %0.003 success rate in sparing the lives of animals turned over to it.

As it turns out, despite the fact that it collects 25 million Pounds Sterling in donations a year, PETA doesn't run a single adoption shelter in Britain. Nor does it operate one anywhere else in the world. Not one.

It's long been known precisely how disingenuous and hypocritical PETA really is.

They continue to slaughter animals at an unconscionable rate, making no effort whatsoever to spare them, but god forbid that someone, somewhere in the world eats a hamburger.

PETA's priorities aren't simply supremely fucked up. They're pretty much non-existent.

  1. The first rule they taught us in journ and Mass Comm. classes:

    Never trust an agenda that blatantly resorts to shock effect over facts to push their point.

    I think the local community animal welfare centers do a much better job at saving these poor critters than PETA does, imho. Too bad they don't get as much attention.

  2. I fully agree. I think all the people giving money to PETA should be giving it to local humane societies.

    At least they normally aren't in such a rush to kill the animals placed in their care.

    But just once, I'd like to hear Ingrid Newkirk explain why it's OK for her and PETA to kill animals, but not for other people.

    What I'd like to hear from PETA is their explanation of why one of their leaders uses insulin shots, despite the blatant fact that the meds were made via animal testing.

    Same goes for antivenom - certain types need to be passed through the circulatory system of animals before it's refined for medical use.

  4. If you want a more interesting story, ask them why they're suing other animal rights groups.

    In this particular case, for operating an animal sanctuary.

  5. *facepalm*

    Patrick, what is the legalese equivalent to throwing rocks at PETA, while saying "Oh fuck off, you crazy cunts!"
