PETA does nothing to help animals. They kill far more animals than they save, without even giving them a chance for a new home. They spend more of their money on promoting themselves instead of accommodations for the animals, unlike the ASPCA who spend most of their funds on shelter, food, and vet care for their animals. They put down REAL animal organizations like the ASPCA and complain about their conditions, but I’ve volunteered at the SPCA and their conditions were fine. PETA kills about 80% of their animals while the ASPCA gets more than 70% of theirs into homes, mainly because the ASPCA actually evaluates their animals medically and behavior-wise before deciding their adoptability while PETA does not. PETA also has been proven to fabricate their videos and give money to terrorist organizations.
PETA also does nothing for endangered species, and they basically give the finger to any exotic animal that may need help.
PETA is completely ignorant of the fact that animals born in captivity cannot survive well in the wild, and if everyone were to release every pet and zoo animal, they would probably all die or be killed by wild animals.
Some animal keepers do keep them in poor conditions and abuse animals, but the ASPCA can take those animals away, charge the owners with animal cruelty, and find the animal a new home IF that animal was proven to live in bad conditions. ASPCA hunts down animal cruelty with their officers, while all PETA does is lobby pointlessly.
PETA also likes to ignore the fact that animals are constantly slaughtered during the harvesting of vegetables, and they also ignore the fact that people are animals, and maybe our welfare matters, too.
The leader of PETA has also gone on record saying that she would never use anything tested on animals, not even medicine, when she herself uses insulin, which was found through animal testing.
Cosmetic research is indeed pointless and unnecessary, but medical research is for our survival.
Most members of PETA are completely ignorant of anything biological and they’ll believe anything PETA tells them, but idiots who arrogantly mock PETA by putting animals down are just as ignorant.
They have the right idea when they speak out against fur and COSMETIC research, but their methods are heinous.
If you hate PETA, speak out against PETA, not animals. Animals are just PETA's pawns.
A bunch of morons, although they have the right idea about helping animals, are doing it the wrong way. They destroy other people's property, and come up with stupid shit like "eating meat causes impotence" (I swear I saw a sign that PETA had put up that said that).
PETA seeks “total animal liberation.” This means no meat, no milk, no zoos, no circuses, no wool, no leather, no hunting, no fishing, and no pets (not even seeing-eye dogs). PETA is also against all medical research that requires the use of animals (including AIDS research).
They do in fact operate kills shelters and have killed over 10,000 healthy house pets. They are against animals as pets.
They support violence if it is for achieving their goal. They use their collected money to pay legal fees for members charged with felonies.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has donated over $150,000 to criminal activists -- including those jailed for arson, burglary, and even attempted murder
Also notice that the People of Ethical Treatment of Animals seem to favor the cute, cuddly-wuddly, furry animals. What about the insects and arachnids? What about the fish, mollusks, and crustaceans? What about the bacteria? What about the reptiles? What about humans? Don't they all have rights too? Would it be animal cruelty if one washes with antibacterial soap?
The PETA is also actively funding a dog-genocide campaign in which any canine suspected to belong to the Pittbull variety (a loveable, family-friendly, loyal dog that is safe with children IF TRAINED PROPERLY) is immediately taken from the owner and killed. Doesn't matter if the dog is half-Pittbull, 1/32 Pittbull, or looks like a Pittbull, the poor pooch will be marked for death.
Ethical Treatment my ass.
For every time the PETA pisses off humanity, I celebrate by barbecuing a steak or ribs.
Humans are classified under the animal kingdom, ergo humans are animals too. Yet many PETA members can't see the irony of their unethical treatment of fellow humans (animals).
Normal Thinking Person: What?!? You realise they are hypocritical terrorist! They killed and mutilated seals needlessly to try and sway others to ban the seal hunt, even if it means northern hunters will starve! They destroy others property and threaten their lives. How ethical is that?
Moron: Uh... oh... I guess I got caught up in all their emotional hype and never thought about it. Please don't tell anyone I shit out my brains and joined PETA.
