PETA exposed
PETA Exposed as Animal Killer
by Fred Bonner

Most North Carolinians are familiar with the organization. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). We were outraged several years ago when two PETA employees who were collecting live animals from animal shelters in eastern North Carolina and supposedly transporting them to PETA’s headquarters in Virginia Beach where the animals were to be “adopted’ were, instead, killing the animals themselves.
After an investigation by local sheriff’s departments, it was discovered that the animals were being killed by the PETA employees soon after they were collected and the carcasses dumped into local (NC.) trash receptacles before they ever got to the Virginia border.
Now a report submitted to a Virginia government agency adds even further doubts as to the intentions of the PETA organization.
According to a release from the Center for Consumer Freedom, “An official report from People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals submitted nine months after a Virginia government agency’s deadline, shows that the animal rights group put to death more than 97 percent of the dogs, cats, and other pets it took in for adoption in 2006. During that year, the well-known animal rights group managed to find adoptive homes for just 12 pets. The nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) is calling on PETA to either end its hypocritical angel-of-death program, or stop its senseless condemnation of Americans who believe it’s perfectly ethical to use animals for food, clothing, and critical medical research,
“Not counting animals PETA held only temporarily in its spay-neuter program, the organization took in 3,061 “companion animals” in 2006, of which it killed 2,981. According to Virginia’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS), the average euthanasia rate for humane societies in the state was just 34.7 percent in 2006. PETA killed 97.4 percent of the animals it took in. The organization filed its 2006 report this month, nine months after the VDACS deadline of March 31, 2007.
“Pet lovers should be outraged,” said CCF Director of Research David Martosko. “There are thousands of worthwhile animal shelters that deserve Americans’ support. PETA is not one of them,”
“In courtroom testimony last year, a PETA manager acknowledged that her organization maintains a large walk-in freezer for storing dead animals, and that PETA contracts with a Virginia cremation service to dispose of the bodies. In that trial, two PETA employees were convicted of dumping dead animals in a rural North Carolina trash dumpster.
“In Southampton County, Virginia, another PETA employee will face felony charges in a dog-napping case. Andrea Florence Benoit Harris was arrested in late 2006 for allegedly abducting a hunting dog and attempting to transport it to PETA’s Norfolk headquarters.
PETA raised over $30 million last year,” Martosko added, “and it’s using that money to kill the only flesh-and-blood animals its employees actually see. The scale of PETA’s hypocrisy is simply staggering.”
