    I'm NOT defending PETA and I don't support gratuitous euthanisation. It's just strange that Vets would have all these puppies and kittens laying around and be, like, wow, here comes PETA, lets just give these to them and get them snuffed.
    Oh, this happened. Here is a piece of the excerpt from the trial convicting these 2 PETA perps:

    In 2007 two PETA employees went on trial in North Carolina for felony animal cruelty and littering (they were convicted of the latter). But it came out during trial that PETA killed healthy, adoptable, “adorable,” even “perfect” animals.



    Those “adorable” and “perfect” quotes are from trial evidence: A PETA defendant’s notebook contained both those words as descriptions of the condition in which the animals PETA killed were obtained. Witnesses testified that they were told that PETA “shouldn’t have a problem at all finding homes” for dogs they handed over to PETA. Those dogs, of course, were killed. And PETA ignominiously tossed the bodies in a dumpster.

    There's more.

    Authorities in Ahoskie, North Carolina dropped a disturbing bombshell
    yesterday with the news that they had charged two employees of People
    for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) with 31 felony counts of
    animal cruelty. PETA's Andrew Cook and Adria Hinkle were arrested late
    Wednesday night after police saw them dump bags containing seven dead
    puppies and 11 other dead animals in a grocery store's dumpster. Their
    PETA-owned van, seized by police, contained another 13 animal bodies.
    Ahoskie's police chief told reporters: "We've been investigating animal
    cruelty and illegal disposal of dead animals within our city for the
    last four weeks" -- roughly the same period of time in which our
    popular PetaKillsAnimals.com website and giant Times Square billboard
    have been making news.

    PETA Norfolk HeadquartersResponding to our website, PETA has claimed
    that most of the animals it kills are "broken beings" and that: "[W]e
    refer every healthy, cute, young animal we can to shelters." But the
    dead animals included a female cat and -- according to a local
    veterinarian -- her two "very adoptable" kittens. "These were just
    kittens we were trying to find homes for," he told PETA's hometown
    Virginian-Pilot. "PETA said they would do that, but these cats never
    made it out of the county."

    PETA's Andrew Cook & Adria Hinkle
    The animal-control officer responsible for the county where Cook and
    Hinkle were arrested told the Associated Press that PETA had picked up
    the animals just a few hours earlier. He added that PETA's employees
    "told him they were picking up the dogs to take them back to Norfolk
    where they would find them good homes."

    Instead, the animals wound up being treated in a decidedly unethical
    fashion. This morning the Roanoke-Chowan News-Herald began distributing
    a grisly photograph showing a police detective in hazmat garb removing
    a puppy carcass from a garbage bag found in the now-infamous dumpster.


    Last night WAVY-TV's coverage in Norfolk included heartbreaking details
    from the manager of the supermarket whose dumpster became an impromptu
    pet cemetery. "They just slung the doors [open] and started throwing
    dogs ... beautiful cats. I saw a [dead] beagle last week that was
    pregnant ... last week it was 23 or 24 dogs ... it's happened to us
    nine times ... they drove straight from there, straight here, and
    disposed of the dogs in 30 seconds."

    Authorities told WNCT-TV in Greenville, NC that they've discovered more
    than 70 dead animals in the last month that may be connected to PETA.
    WKTR-TV reported today that Cook and Hinkle are out on bond, "thanks to
    the President of the People for the Ethical Treatment."

    In a story that eerily resembles the current charges facing PETA's
    employees, the Associated Press reported on April 8 that an additional
    150 euthanized dogs were found in rural Virginia, apparently dumped in
    trash bags near a riverbank. The Scott County, Virginia Sheriff is
    investigating.
    Don't have the original article, only the blog that this was posted.

    PETA caught illegally dumping dead animals - Mombu the Pets Forum

    Here's a statement from PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk:

    In 2003 we learned for the first time that Ingrid Newkirk - tireless defender of animals - has another face. During the 1970's her chosen profession was "dog catcher" and killer. Newkirk unabashedly describes her zeal for killing in her own words: "I'd go to work early, before anyone got there, and I would just kill the animals myself...I must have killed a thousand of them, sometimes dozens every day." She was so good at it she rose through the ranks to become director of District of Columbia's high-kill pound where she reigned for some years. There, under her rule, untold thousands more died.

    Yeah, but the previous poster, Specklebang is in denial that PETA would ever be involved in something like that. This person is either very young or has an idealistic view that PETA is here to protect all animals. Unfortunately, their idealism does not include animal welfare.
