    Wait, is it RSCPA or NSCPA cause:

    NSPCA - Preventing Cruelty to all Animals

    NSPCC = Children
    NSPCA and RSPCA = Animals

    Slightly sad when there is two national charities for animals and one for children ...

    I couldn't agree more on PETA. They haven't a clue for the most part, of the Natural World. About ten years ago, there was a News Blip on PETA releasing a Sea Otter that'd had been rescued from a oil spill on the West Coast. They'd nursed it back to health. And had a bus load of kids from the local school come out to watch the "Release Back to Nature".

    The Otter cuts loose toward the Ocean, and starts swimming off. All the kids are clapping their hands in joy... Then the Shark came along, and the "Natural Cycle" of Nature unfolded before their eyes. Not a dry eye to be seen after that... They witnessed a "Hunt" in action.

    Ours is almost indentical, just a different first letter to it. Pretty much the same purpose and the same methods of implementing that purpose.

    They have done, to a certain extent. They had women showering in plexiglass booths in a London street for some reason, apparently. What that has to do with animal rights, I have NO idea.

    No idea what it was supposed to achieve but look on the bright side. I'm sure it gave the tourists something else to ogle at.
