People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals-an orginization that promotes animal rights and exposes companies that do abusive things to animals for their own financial gain. This is usually done with hidden cameras worn by animal rights activists posing as employees.
"Did you hear about that baby circus elephant that died from falling off a platform?"

"Wow. That's terrible. And I'm sure that nobody would even know about it if it wasn't for PETA."

PETA (PEA-tuh) stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. They are only people who care about animals, and fight for them because other morons won't. Just because "Meat tastes good" or "Animals are here for us to eat" which is NOT TRUE.
The human body isn't built to digest meat. Idiots.
Someone needs to defend the animals, they're helpless alone.
peta2.com is not for the ignorant.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) (stylized PeTA) is an American animal rights organization based in Norfolk, Virginia, and led by Ingrid Newkirk, its international president. A non-profit corporation with 300 employees and two million members and supporters, it is the largest animal rights group in the world. Its slogan is "animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment."

Founded in March 1980 by Newkirk and fellow animal rights activist Alex Pacheco, the organization first caught the public's attention in the summer of 1981 during what became known as the Silver Spring monkeys case, a widely publicized dispute about experiments conducted on 17 macaque monkeys inside the Institute of Behavioral Research in Silver Spring, Maryland. The case lasted ten years, involved the only police raid on an animal laboratory in the United States, triggered an amendment in 1985 to that country's Animal Welfare Act, and established PETA as an internationally known organization. Since then, in its campaigns and undercover investigations, it has focused on four core issues—opposition to factory farming, fur farming, animal testing, and animals in entertainment—though it also campaigns against fishing, the killing of animals regarded as pests, the keeping of chained backyard dogs, cock fighting, dog fighting, and bullfighting.
Allie: Look! My friend Shelley is in the PETA protest!
Jenna: What's PETA?
Allie: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
Jenna: Oh, she must be crazy and violent then.
Allie: Actually, all she wants is for everyone to be treated equally, to end slavery and this holocaust.
Jenna: Oh.. she actually sounds like she has good morals.

AKA: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. A group of animal activist who are commonly misread or misunderstood. PETA members consist of radicals and extremists but also vegans such as Leona Lewis, Nia Long and Forest Whittaker. Not all PETA members are radical people. They put unhealthy and suffering animals to sleep fairly and painlessly. They aren't 100% against the use of consuming animals as much as they are against animals being viciously harmed for food and worn for their fur. They don't think human life is less important then animal life. They simply believe that animal life and rights aren't fought for enough. Just because they fight for the protection of animals of and not for humans does not make them an inhumane people. Stop judging people and things you know bits and pieces or nothing about.
PETA is hosting a protest against fur trade.

Wow, I hope change is made.

Me too.

A great organization that most people judge without knowing what it is. We fight for animal rights AND human safety simultaneously.

-Humans are no more important than that ant you stepped on this morning.

-There are much more accurate tests than testing on animals. The ONLY reason researchers test on those cute little monkeys is because it is the cheapest way.
-Eating meat and dairy has been SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN to be very unhealthy and shorten life span.
-Humans have the capability to make food and clothing/products without hurting animals. Why not use this knowledge?
-Millions of animals are tortured, sometimes to the point of death, for enjoyment. That is NOT right.
-About 1,569,205 animals PER DAY are saved by us.

I don't see what the problem is.

*PETA is NOT against house pets. PETA is indifferent towards it. If it's in the best interest of the animal, take it in. If the animal would be better off in the wild, set it free.
*PETA does NOT use violence. We use the same advertisement techniques as any other group or business to gather other people.
*If PETA operated kill shelters which is a total oxymoron, I would not be a member. And my dog is part pitbull. I still have him.
Why does everyone hate PETA? Focus your hatred on people who ARENT doing good in the world, like the kkk and al keida.
