PETA -- The real truth

 

Peophttp://www.consumerfreedom.com/news_detail.cfm/headline/3856le for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has been described as "by far the most successful radical organization in America." The key word is radical. They seek "total animal liberation," according to its president and co-founder, Ingrid Newkirk. That means no meat or dairy, of course; but it also means no aquariums, no circuses, no hunting or fishing, no fur or leather, and no medical research using animals. They are even opposed to the use of seeing-eye dogs.

On "The Fifth Down," the New York Times football blog, a guest contributor posed a provocative question today: If you had to give up your beloved pet, would you be better off giving it to disgraced quarterback Michael Vick (of dog fighting notoriety), or Ingrid Newkirk, the president and founder of PETA? Answer: If you truly care about the family pup’s welfare, you should keep it as far from PETA as possible.

It's wise advice -- and timely too.

 

Today, we're telling reporters that the latest proof of their pet extermination program is available at PetaKillsAnimals.com. This unapologetic hypocrisy has been going on for years. Despite its $32 million budget, PETA does not operate an adoption shelter. And its employees make no discernible effort to find homes for the thousands of pets they kill every year.

PETA Killed a Record Number of Pets in 2008

Even after years of public outrage over its dog and cat killing, the animal rights group is still putting down an average of nearly six pets every day at its Norfolk, VA headquarters. Every day. Below are the statistics by year.

Just seven. Out of 2,124. That's a new record. Can you imagine what would happen if the Red Cross helped one-third of one percent of people who needed their help following a tornado or hurricane? Or if a soup kitchen fed only seven people when a line of over two thousand trailed around the block?

 

According to public records from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, since 1998 a total of 21,339 dogs and cats have died at the hands of their workers. Last year, PETA killed 2,124 pets and placed only seven in adoptive homes.

 

On its 2002 federal income-tax return, they claimed a $9,370 write-off for a giant walk-in freezer, the kind most people use as a meat locker or for ice-cream storage. But animal-rights activists don't eat meat or dairy foods. And during a 2007 criminal trial, a PETA manager (testifying under oath) confirmed the obvious -- that the group uses the appliance to store the bodies of its victims.

 

That’s exactly why the Center for Consumer Freedom petitioned Virginia’s State Veterinarian last year to reclassify PETA as a slaughterhouse. In addition to exposing PETA’s hypocritical record of killing defenseless animals, we’ve been tirelessly publicizing the animal rights group’s ties to violent activists, and putting the spotlight on its aggressive and grossly inappropriate message-marketing to children.
