PETA (People for Euthanizing Their Animals)

According to public records from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, PETA killed 2,124 pets last year and placed only seven in adoptive homes. Since 1998, a total of 21,339 dogs and cats have died at the hands of PETA workers.

Despite having a $32 million budget, PETA does not operate an adoption shelter. PETA employees make no discernible effort to find homes for the thousands of pets they kill every year. Last year, the Center for Consumer Freedom petitioned Virginia’s State Veterinarian to reclassify PETA as a slaughterhouse.

The truth hurts sometimes.

You can read the rest here.

Some questions:
-Does this change your view of PETA?
-How does this fit into their mission statement?
-Does this even matter?

I always did kinda think that the PETA people were kinda "off balance". But I never saw this comming! What next? The NRA voting for gun control?? 0_o

As someone who lived in Norfolk, Va which happens to be where PETA is headquartered, my answer is no.
