A PETA executive's lame response to my earlier post (see comments) led me to this deceptive site about how they claim to help animals in North Carolina.
From the ongoing trial of two PETA employees on animal-cruelty charges, we know how they really operate:
1. Approach an animal shelter and lie about how you want to adopt a dog or cat.
2. Load the animal in your van and give it the needle.
3. Dump the carcass in a supermarket Dumpster. Let someone else worry about the final disposal problem and paying the bill.
4. Repeat thousands of times.
5. Start another fund-raising campaign.
Lying to the underpaid and overworked shelter employees is acceptable, because PETA people are morally superior to the rest of us. Just ask them.
If you care about what happens to domestic animals, instead of giving money to PETA, support your local humane society or animal shelter. Don't give money to big national groups like PETA or the Humane Society of the United States, which spend most of what they collect on still more fundraising and lobbying--and very little on actual animals.
