I heard a news story the other day regarding PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. It seems the PETA is not what it claims to be.
The Center for Consumer Freedom obtained the records for the “humane shelter” in Norfolk, Virginia. This shelter is at PETA’s headquarters. What they found was that PETA’s shelter didn’t even meet their own published guidelines for running a shelter! At their own headquarters!!!!
Last year, the shelter took in almost 2,000 animals. 34 of the animals were transferred to other shelters. 24 of the animals were adopted. The others were murdered. 95.9% of the animals taken into a shelter run by the people who claim they want ethical treatment for animals, were murdered. I can’t even call it euthanized. They were freaking murdered!!!!!
The majority of these helpless animals were adoptable, according to the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. From the records they examined, 84% were murdered within 24 hours of PETA’s shelter taking control of them. They never even had a chance to be adopted.
I think it’s time for true animal lovers to strike back. Maybe we should be throwing red paint at them to represent the blood of the adoptable animals they murdered. Forget the freedom for the SeaWorld orcas who have a safe place to live, food, and love from their trainers. Maybe it’s time to sue PETA for their treatment of animals. Think about that! Think about the 27,751 animals they murdered out of 31,815 animals they’ve taken in since the second half of 1998. And this is just one of the shelters they run. It has been estimated that in the last 25 years, PETA has murdered millions of animals!!! My heart is just breaking.
These people should be brought up on animal cruelty charges. The world needs to know what is happening to the money they donate to help the animals. They need to stop donating to an organization that would rather use their money for advertising and shameless lawsuits just to gain publicity. Use that money to take care of these animals until they are adopted. These people murder animals! How is that ethical???
I heard in the story the reason they killed the animals is because they didn’t want them to go to families that would abuse them or sell them to research labs. How lame can you get? This is the same organization that urges us not to eat meat because of the cruel way the animals are raised. I guess murdering an animal isn’t cruel.
This is just wrong on so many levels. I am totally outraged and heartbroken for these innocent animals. How about you? Still going to donate to PETA…???
