Death by PETA?

This one was in this morning’s Daily Caller.

Documents published online this month show that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, an organization known for its uncompromising animal-rights positions, killed more than 95 percent of the pets in its care in 2011.


These concerned, peaceful humanitarians of the liberal persuation sure know how to practice what they preach, don’t they?

The documents, obtained from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, were published online by the Center for Consumer Freedom, a non-profit organization that runs online campaigns targeting groups that antagonize food producers.

Fifteen years’ worth of similar records show that since 1998 PETA has killed more than 27,000 animals at its headquarters in Norfolk, VA.

In a February 16 statement, the Center said PETA killed 1,911 cats and dogs last year, finding homes for only 24 pets.

“PETA hasn’t slowed down its slaughterhouse operation,” said Rick Berman, CCF’s executive director. “It appears PETA is more concerned with funding its media and advertising antics than finding suitable homes for these dogs and cats.”

In a statement, Berman added that PETA has a $37 million dollar annual budget.

His organization runs PETAkillsAnimals.com, which reports that in 2010 a resident of Virginia called PETA and asked if there was an animal shelter at the group’s headquarters. PETA responded that there was not.

I was recently at Bloomingdales (Lexington Avenue in Manhattan) and espied an anti-fur coat demonstration in front of the place, complete with pictures of skinned, bloody animals and the kind of slant to their message that almost suggested these animals were skinned alive, screaming in torment.

I wonder if these PETA creatures and their “progressive” friends would be offended were photographs to be posted publicly of aborted babies and piles of dead animals fallen victim to PETA’s slaughterhouse operation.

Of course they would! Liberals live on what they imagine is a one way street…

    Spot on Mrs Wolf. They are the only righteous, just and reasonable individuals on the planet …

    In their minds at any rate.

    They certainly think so!

    It’s “interesting” to note that one doesn’t of these developments (re PETA’s animal genocide) in the NY Times. :-)

  3. The Gray Monk Says:

    Of course not. The Journalist who did would find him/herself targeted by hate mail, pickets outside their homes, slashed tyres, and other lifethreatening sabotage … All justified by their ’cause’ and its promotion of their vision of Utopia …

    This is so true, as all liberals are expected to be 100% behind every single “progressive” agenda.

    Look at Joe Lieberman as an example. Here’s a politician who was a Clinton insider and whose views are about as far left as they can be, yet the one time he strayed off the reservation by agreeing with conservatives about finishing the job in Iraq (after visiting that wretched country) the liberal owned Democrats turned on him and nominated someone else to take over his senate seat (unfortunately for them, his constituency reelected him as an independent, which really gave the left something to worry about, heh heh).

    Independent thinking is not tolerated, not even on a single issue, on the left side of the aosle.
