In a March 25, press release, the nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) asserted that the radical (and vehemently anti-hunting) animal "rights" group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) actually killed a mind-boggling 95 percent of the adoptable pets in its care last year.
In the release, CCF cites public records from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, which show that PETA killed 2,124 pets last year—almost 6 per day—and placed only seven in adoptive homes. Yes, you read that right: Seven! For a dog or cat needing to be adopted, those are awfully dismal odds.
These outrageous numbers clearly demonstrate PETA's blatant hypocrisy and shameful double standard. And CCF further reports that since 1998, a total of 21,339 dogs and cats have died at the hands of PETA workers. PETA headquarters certainly doesn't sound like a very safe place for an animal to be.
Perhaps it's time for PETA to change its name to the much more appropriate "People for the UN-Ethical Treatment of Animals."
