PETA Threatens Bloggers, Journalists

That the group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) kills most of the animals that it takes into its shelters is becoming common knowledge.

PETA's response, apparently, is to threaten legal action against columnists and bloggers who draw attention to that fact.

Patrick Burns, among others, has the statistics. He notes that under Virginia law (where PETA is based), "PETA's license is to run an animal shelter or humane society rather than a slaughter house."
