*Virginia Asked to Classify PETA as a Slaughterhouse
> Thursday, January 17, 2008
> The Center for Consumer Freedom, a non-profit trade group representing the
> interests of manufacturers and retailers, formally petitioned the
> Commonwealth of Virginia to reclassify PETA as a “slaughterhouse”.
> An official report filed by PETA itself shows that the animal rights group
> put to death nearly every dog, cat, and other pet it took in for adoption
> 2006. During that year, the well-known animal rights group managed to find
> adoptive homes for just 12 animals. The organization killed 2,981 of the
> 3,061 “companion animals” it took in.
> According to David Martosko, Research Director for CCF… “It is absurd to
> classify PETA as a ‘humane society’ when its employees are slaughtering
> nearly every companion animal they bring in. PETA has killed over 17,000
> pets since 1998. Given the group’s astonishing habit of killing adoptable
> dogs and cats with such ruthless efficiency, it’s only fair that the state
> of Virginia refer to PETA as a slaughterhouse.”
> CCF’s petition was directed to Virginia’s Department of Agriculture and
> Consumer Services. If approved, the new classification would force PETA to
> abide an entirely new set of laws and regulations.
> The Center of Consumer Freedom has set PETA in its sights because PETA has
> targeted the companies that CCF represents, such as food makers,
> stores, and textile companies.
> PETA’s most successful publicity campaigns have been those against the fur
> industry, arguing that killing animals for fur is akin to cruelty. Yet
> ironically, PETA itself is killing thousands perfectly healthy and
> animals for no better reason than just ideology.March 13, 2009 at 11:26 pm #111815*Lassie*Member
Good for The Center of Consumer Freedom, most ordinary people think that PETA saves all the animals. Their campaign against fur etc, about time people realised how twisted this organisation is.March 14, 2009 at 10:13 am #111816SuzAndTheDivaMember
