does anyone else think it is bizarre that humans are the only ones who consume other animals' milk and drink milk after pregnancy?

It is, but on the other hand, our manipulation of the plant kingdom for the same reason, nourishment, is no less 'unnatural'. Both plant and animal agriculture are bizarre in some way or another.

Well, I more had in mind grain monocropping, but square melons will do. Then there's those freaky giant vegetables grown in Alaska...

For a second, I thought this was an allusion to Palin and her mental capacity.

On the off chance that PeTA got their way, do they have any proposals in place for what would happen to the animals that no longer serve any purpose? The only logical conclusion of the cessation of the milk industry is that the animals no longer serve a purpose and would be disposed of so that they don't sap resources. They can't survive without handling, at this point, and farmers aren't going to choose to bankrupt themselves over turning profit, so... yeah. Awesome?

It's not weird when you consider that we are the one species that knows to make that shit into CHOCOLATE MILK!

It isn't as if these animals are caught in the wild and brought into the farm system. They are bred and produced for farming purposes. There wouldn't be massive cow, pig, sheep, chicken herds running around wildly if no one bred and produced them. And logically even if no one used animals for food at all it wouldn't be a sudden cessation of the practice, but something that slowed down and gradually stopped.
