Why would anyone be surprised at the PETA protests at the Westminster Dog Show and their treatment of our own local Mona Rutger who does so much for the local wildlife.
What are the facts: In the states that PETA operates shelters for dogs and cats they have killed more than 90 percent of the animals taken in since 1998. In the last year reported 2008 it was more than 95 percent. They managed to place just 7 out of over 2,000 taken in. Guess what they store in the walk in freezer? dead carcasses waiting for cremation.
What are some of the things PETA does with its money. In 2001 they donated $1,500 to Earth Liberation Front. The FBI- certified that group as "domestic terrorists" responsible for dozens of fire bombings. They also gave more than $70,000 to the man convicted of burning down the Michigan State University research Lab.
PETA believes in the total liberation of all animals. They oppose zoos, aquariums, animal research, wool, leather, animal farming, the meat industry, honey, cheese, eggs,milk, fur, silk, hunting, fishing and pet ownership. They are even opposed to seeing eye dogs.
When the facts are known its a wonder anyone donates money. Yet they have a $32 million budget.
