    Yes, it is a huge suprise and bogus

    Watch the video and read the article, at the worst this is illegal dumping.
    PETA to avoid animals being killed cruelly by shelters gives them the needle.
    Without a billion dollar budget some will have to be killed. Just like when we watch TV video about semi-auto revolvers etc. , unless you work in this environmet you have no idea of whats what. The guy on the video said a pregenant beagle was in there, pregnant or tumor? If pregnant not placable and you will have another litter to place, better not to be born.
    The cat and 2 kittens comment, also very hard to place cats. Media spin when the public doesn't understand reality.
    PETA not perfect but not working for the anti-christ either....

    I'm not surprised. All of the PETA run shelters automatically euthanize pit bulls or any dog suspected of being a mix, it's a kill on sight policy that extends from the top down. Ingrid Newkirk herself has ranted about pit bulls, an opinion I'd dispute gleefully.

    I have no sympathy when they go to Park Avenue and throw red paint on little old ladies in fur coats. If they wanted to go down to a Hell's Angels clubhouse and throw red paint on their leather jackets I'd respect them a little more.

    People I know from that area say that PETA stands for People Embrassing the Tidewater Area.

    Not trying to cause a heated debate, but what is the difference between what PETA is doing and the use of hunting seasons to manage wildlife so that animals don't die a cruel death?

    So if PETA does this, it is O.K., but hunters do it, it is murder???????????

    Isn't it PETA that says the state should spend the money for birth control of deer? So why doesn't PETA just build more shelters?

    Hey cobb it's not fair to bring up the hyposcrisy of PETA, and don't even think about mentioning their ties to ALF. Coronado is especially off limits, Ingrid said he's a nice guy and she can't be wrong. ;)

    This article is about this one incident. I think CentralTexas has hit the nail squarely on the head with his response. The only new news here is that they're dumping the bodies someplace they shouldn't be. Not a great thing to be doing, but not quite "scandal worthy" I don't think.

    PETA is a cult. Or I should say a front for a cult idea. Animal rights is far more than loving animals and being aganist cruelty. It is a pantheistic movement. Like all cults there will be guliable persons pulled in. Just read the toughts of their greatquasi- religious leaders. Peter Singer etc. :what:

    Peta only spends about 3% of it's budget actually helping animals.

    Hence the cruelty - but was it to the animal, the deceived humans, or both?

    So just where did they come up with whatever was in their hyperactive little syringes?

    The PETA supporters/members I've spoken to know very little about animals. They know that all animals are like people, loveable and peace-loving creatures - Walt Disney told them so. Their passion is misplaced on malformed emotion.

    They typically understand animals so well, they do things like break into a mink farm and release all the animals, only to see many of them smushed by traffic on the adjacent interstate. Idiots.

    Some will argue that people are naturally vegetarians and get very upset when it is pointed out that they have forward set eyes and canine teeth like other omnivoures. It is appearantly difficult to argue against one's own physiology.

    PETA euthanizing animals is very different from hunters killing game. We hunters eat the animals we kill. :neener:

    "These were just kittens we were trying to find homes for," he said. "PETA said they would do that, but these cats never made it out of the county."

    That Vet is a moron. Any Vet with half an ounce of sense knows that PETA cares nothing about individual animals. Their long-term goals are abolishing hunting and pet ownership.

    I am a Veterinarian, and I cheered when I saw this article on CNN. The criminal charges will probably go nowhere, but anything to give PETA a bloody nose makes me happy.

    The description of PETA as a Cult is not far off the mark. Most of money raised by them comes from well-meaning people who want to take care of cute fuzzy animals. If the average person realized their true goals and methods, they would dry up very quickly.

    It will be a grand day when PETA and ALF are out of business permanently.

    Geezzz...what a bunch of hypocrites PETA is. If they stuck to exposing legitimate abuse of animals, even our food animals like the chicken abuse about a year ago, I'd have a bit of respect for them.

    I don't think there was any cruelty there, just a bad decision in where to dump the animals. I for one am not sad to see them get bad media, although the majority of charges are pretty rediculous.

    Disagree. They took at least some kittens that stood a good chance of adoption and killed 'em for no good reason, and lied about it to the vet they were taking them from.

    The real fun comes from the fact that PETA advertised these as no kill facilities and took donations based on those representations. PETA is likely to be looking at some fraud charges down the pike.

    Actually, it's already being discussed. The moment the story broke about PETA's killer "no kill" facilities, fraud charges were discussed as a possibility.

    Further, there hasn't been enough time for PETA's fellow travelers to work up the frenzy necessary to sue for fraud.

    PETA and the ACLU

    Both overall good organizations that in principle we mostly agree with. The ACLU was the only group that stood with the NRA against McCain-Feingold for instance. Anyone here in favor of animal cruelty? Exactly, but mention either one and most folks here get so worked up. Think they sit around in PETA HQ and get excited when a hunter gets arrested for something?

    Nice strawman. PETA's position is that animals have rights equal to those of humans and should not used or abused for any purpose. So, do you agree that all animals everywhere should be given equal rights to humans?

    As for the ACLU, spare me. They don't recognize my right to own firearms, so they aren't an "overall good" organization.

    Uhhh, yes. Yes they do. PETA is a disgusting organization, and something I support in no way shape or form.

    Animal cruelty, no. I prefer a clean kill in my hunting. However, I do think they get excited when a hunter gets arrested.
