    PETA did not go after the president for swatting a fly. They joked around a bit and made some generic comments about being kind to all animals, and then only when asked by the media. Obama and the Fly, Part Deux | PETA.org

    I am not a fan of PETA since they go too far in some things and their tactics are not what I consider appropriate. However, this thread is the ultimate fail since it requires people to be entirely ignorant of the actual topic. More reading on the topic: Euthanasia | PETA.org



    That is something I can actually agree with. PETA uses the appropriate, noncruel methods approved by the US Humane Society and AMVA.
    Redress, I think we all understand that euthanasia is, very unfortunately, necessary due to pet over-population. My issue with PETA, is that they seem to think euthanasia to be preferable to, at least, attempting to find new homes. I'd much rather support an organization like the ASPCA.

    PETA generally ends up with animals that have been abused. Not those that have lived in a loving environment. Those animals do not have social skills and can not be rehomed so euthanasia is an appropriate solution.

    No-kill shelters are packed solid everywhere. My local government pound contractor kills 85% of the cats they take in INCLUDING highly socialized cats that would make someone a GREAT companion.

    This is MY website - there are no ads - I do this because I give a damn. Advocacy for exceptional cats in imminent danger

    Maybe this will give you a better idea of the horror of what's going on. I think PETA is nuts but I support some of what they do.
    I respect your recue efforts, Specklebang, but you're just flat out wrong to say that abused animals can't be socialized or rehabilitated. Both my dogs are shelter dogs and one of them had suffered a broken jaw and leg in her past. She's the sweetest (and now a very spoiled) dog. Looks just like a living teddy bear.

    I remember a NatGeo special about some of Michael Vick's pitbulls taken to Dog Town. The wisdom was that they were just too abused to ever be good family pets and the expectation was that they would just live out their lives at Dog Town. After months of care and rehab, thought, some of those dogs were able to be adopted out, even surprising several of the volunteers there.

    Refute what? Taht PETA supports "ethical" euthanasia, but at the same time throws paint on people wearing fur, compares KFC to the Nazi's and other such stupidity? That they are "good" about killing "unwanted" animals, but damn you if you use animals to advance medical sciences to save lives and treat diseases?

    Well boffo for them. Your stance isn't that PETA is doing something right, you're trying to deflect negatives from an organization with the proper political ideology to yours. That's all your post was. Defending political brothers, nothing more.
    PETA is a horrible organization that says "Do as we say, not as we do".

    **** them, and **** anyone defending those ****heads.

    Remember this guy?

    2.jpg

    Saved.

    How about this little fella? He was dumped, on the side of the road. Had we taken him to PETA, he'd have a 5% chance to not be fertilizer. Instead he's living the good life with a caring family. (no kill shelter for the win)

    How about this guy?

    labby.jpg

    He went to a large dog no kill group, he's now living the good life as ranch dog.

    And of course, Wyatt (he's the blonde one)
    wyatt.jpg

    Dumped on a county road near Abilene, now living with us (Knox is my pom).

    Everyone of these dogs
    (and the poor skunk) would stand a good chance of being "ethically" killed by PETA. But what do you care? They do it "humanly" so it's OK.

    Oh, there is another, I don't have his pic at the moment, a huskie my wife rescued, he was in such bad shape when we found him he pissed blood all over the back of the car. He's alive, and well today with a loving family.

    **** PETA.

    I love how you responded to yourself in a poor attempt to make yourself seem higher up on the ladder. How cute.

    I am no fan of PETA. I find them incredibly annoying and idiotic.

    Strange. They share so much in common with you, yet you denounce them.

    Okay, here's why:

    Your first reply to Redress is extremely ignorant.

    "We wouldn't expect you to find anything wrong here, this wasn't posted for the likes of you."
    You automatically make the assumption Redress supports PETA, which Redress points out that he/she does not. You go on further to assume that Redress shares the same political ideology to PETA. Redress pointed out that PETA's euthanasia policy is clear and is backed by the US Humane Society. You ignored this, responding with insults. Redress pointed out the logical fallacies in your post and argument, and you respond by bitching like a angsty-teenager.

    I see. You're a pretentious one aren't you? Redress and PETA are politically aligned, first off. Secondly, who cares HOW they kill the animals? It's the fact they take in and KILL 95% of the animals brought to them, yet have the audacity to protest "cruelty" to animals. What? Would KFC get a pass if they "humanely" slaughtered their chickens? Would a fur brand get daps from PETA if they killed "nicely"?
