In 2005, two PETA employees described as "adorable" and "perfect" some of the dogs and cats they killed in the back of a PETA-owned van.

Back of a van?

I'm assuming it was windowless.

Seems legit.

Documents published online this month show that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, an organization known for its uncompromising animal-rights positions, killed more than 95 percent of the pets in its care in 2011.


Otherwise known as PETA files.

I'm just going to assume that the Ironic tag killed the Obvious tag in the back of a PETA van...

Is it too much to hope that they are at least donating the bodies to science? It's my understanding that most lab supply companies get the majority of their animal specimens for dissections from shelters and such that have put down unclaimed animals. I would hope PETA would do the same, but somehow I doubt it.

FTFA: The documents, obtained from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, were published online by the Center for Consumer Freedom, a non-profit organization that runs online campaigns targeting groups that antagonize food producers.

Ah, Center for Consumer Freedom! Defenders of the defenseless. Good on them for taking on the thankless task of protecting those poor ol' industrial slaughter-houses. Seriously, though, is there a likeable party involved here?


FTA: Kovich also determined that PETA employees kill 84 percent of the animals in their custody within 24 hours of receiving them.

So, I'm curious - what kind of animals does PETA usually receive, being that it's primarily an advocacy organization and not an animal rescue operation? Oh, this kind: "most of the animals we take in are society's rejects; aggressive, on death's door, or somehow unadoptable."

What does PETA do anymore? All they do is go around preaching veganism while slathering animals in a different way the rest of society does. It is some convoluted Ponzie scheme where they get idiots to donate money? Cause I don't think I've ever heard of PETA actually doing anything besides having naked protests.
 
2012-02-26 09:49:49 PM
Hmm. Center for Consumer Freedom. PETA. Two loudmouthed organizations with reputations for hyperbole and well-established agendas. I'm going to go ahead and say there are no winners here.

Also..published documents you say? Well that's good enough for me. If someone said it on the internet it's definitely legit. Yes I realize the original source of the documents, but calling them "published" doesn't really add any legitimacy.

No, sadly. Penn and Teller's "Bullshiat" (minus filter pwnage) show did a segment on PETA. They kill and cremate, often after keeping the corpses in a freezer. They're slime.

Way to be depressing, brah. Talking about what is likely someone's former pet that they had to likely give up because they lost their house now ending up being chopped apart by your students.

Animal-rights extremists care about animals the way religious fundamentalists care about fetuses. Just as fundies attack abortion rights because they're against women's rights generally, animal-rights extremists are more against people using animals (including as pets, I suspect) than they are "for" animals. These are hate groups at war with people who live against their beliefs.

Subby didn't know that? This has been known for years. PETA is classified as a terrorist organization, and they don't give a crap about animals. They hate the entire idea of "domesticated". Their creed is its better for an animal to die than be in the hands of a loving human.

And apparently their goal is for the entire world to be vegan with no domestic animals at all. Near as I can tell. No circuses or zoos, either.

/Nevermind that's totally not sustainable

farks sake. I wouldn't bat an eyelash if it was about PETA members eating meat, but this is particularly disgusting. Can we declare Canada a national Cat/Dog overflow delivery area for the states, and just release them into the wild?

Ain't like 10 dogs will actually take down a moose when cat meat is available.

An apologist in fine form.

PETA's been killing the vast majority of received animals for years, and when confronted about it in the past, has admitted that cost is their primary motivator. In most states, PETA doesn't have the facilities to maintain an animal population - they're a revolving door. PETA has, in the past, dubiously claimed that it does not run a "traditional animal shelter" and that it puts down animals that are too sick or injured to carry on. Except that's utter bullshiat. In Virginia, 84 percent of the animals PETA took in were killed in less than 24 hours, including animals that were healthy and adoptable, according to a 2007 trial in Virginia.

Since 1980, PETA has killed more than 85% of all the animals it has received.

As someone who has served as a foster parent for animals, including "aggressive" animals, when I lived in Connecticut, I find PETA's attitude towards animals in their care reprehensible. I now live in King County, Washington, where we have achieved an 85% save rate. No-kill policies are not just possible, but could be done on a fraction of what PETA receives - but that would detract from PETA's massive marketing & advertising efforts, not to mention their more direct activism & support of activist groups willing to commit criminal acts given the funding.

If you have to find a new home for a pet, donate it to your local Humane Society (and, if possible, slide them some cash - they could use it.) PETA couldn't give a rat's rectum for your pet - it's a burden for them, and they don't waste time in killing them.

2012-02-26 10:04:35 PM
I should clarify my post - King County hasn't quite hit their 85% save rate yet, but they are working towards a no-kill policy.

By comparison, PETA's killed more than 85% of the animals they received since 1998, and that kill rate skyrocketed in some states to 95% or more, as PETA focused more on their silly-ass sensationalist marketing and less on actually saving animals.

Rant aside, I wholly endorse this statement. It's why I asked: "So, I'm curious - what kind of animals does PETA usually receive, being that it's primarily an advocacy organization and not an animal rescue operation?"

shiat, I wasn't even aware that PETA took animals in, and would have thought that they did, if you'd asked me.

If the last two decades have taught me anything about the AR movement, it's that PeTA can do no wrong. They live in that rarefied stratum of Godly political correctness where their actions are above and beyond any and all criticism, or even questioning. Right up there with the average Volvo Socialist University LUG dreadlocked blonde picketing at Israeli Apartheid Week, while buying a kopi-luwak soy latte on her Daddy's credit card.

There are also some genuinely nice and well meaning people in my life who may be supporting them in some form or another. I may have to do some ideology crushing.

I used to volunteer for the SPCA. I eventually stopped because it was making want to just start attacking people when animals would come in and we'd find out the conditions they were left/found in. What some people are capable of doing to animals is absolutely sickening. I hunt and fish, so it's not like I'm against killing animals, but stuff I saw while working there was inexcusable.

Guess what. According to experts the dog I am looking at right now was "unadoptable". If they said they didn't have the resources to care for all the animals they were given, I would believe that. But I do not buy for a minute that 95% are "unadoptable".
