I wish the only animal cruelty in the world was restricted to cat juggling.

peta have done this to themselves and don't deserve to be taken seriously.

if you want to look at an organization that wants to make a difference, maybe take a look at greenpeace. they're not a laughing stock, and people respect what they have to say.

as soon as i see or hear anything from peta, i shut it off. not interested.

That video is disgusting, and I'm not easily disturbed or disgusted. I would not watch it if you are someone who easily gets emotional over animals or doesn't like blood.

I'm not watching it, I've been warned not to watch it. Animal cruelty is something I feel very strongly about.

Did you miss this??

http://www.nokillnow.com/PETAIngridNewkirkResign.htm

PETA has long been 'rescuing' dogs and cats for the sole purpose of killing them. No, this is not the same thing as a shelter intending to find homes but being unable, they were intentionally lying to people to hand over pets and help them round up pets so that they could put them in 'foster homes' and adopt them out. They claimed to have a facility and plenty of waiting homes. They even lied and said they had found homes. In reality, there was no shelter or foster homes, only death at the hands of people who mostly weren't even legally qualified to deliver euthanasia, and being disposed of in out of the way dipsy dumpsters.

They are opposed to no kill shelters. They even go to no kill shelters and take pets out claiming they have homes for them. People think, oh it's PETA they love animals! Wrong. The animals were killed in the van before they even got far down the road. There were no waiting homes. PETA was literally taking the pets out of no kill shelters and away from rescuers just to kill them. It seems PETA hates dogs and cats for two reasons, one, they are carnivorous hunters and cannot be changed to a vegan diet, and two, because they don't want them running around but don't feel life with humans is a good option so they're better off dead. This is sick and twisted and scary. It makes me ILL how many celebrities give them money thinking they are helping animals when stuff like this is going on. If you can stomach the links, you'll see mounds of dead dogs retrieved from dumpsters where PETA workers literally hid the bodies after lying about the animals' fates.

I think the reason a lot of other people hate them because they are so annoying and their methods so odd they damage their own cause by coming off as freaks and extremists. The woman in charge of PETA, if you read the articles in the link, is very strange and dangerous. Please, don't give your money or support to this wacky organization. There are much better animal charities.

The only ones who should wear fur are animals! It's disgusting that this is done to innocent creatures for the sake of luxury. I feel very strongly about that issue. When I see someone wearing real fur, I just want to jump on them, it makes me so mad. It's so unnecessary and cruel.

At people wearing fur and everyone involved in the torture of animals.
