Good old PETA strikes again. Would love to know what your thoughts are on this video and PETA.
I'll go first and say that i HATE THEM WITH A PASSION !!!! (PETA that is not breeders).
Can't watch the video at the moment but a few years back PETA showed up at Westminster dog show dressed as KKK members in protest of the show.
Another girl disrupted the BIS announcememt by running out onto to podium with a sign.
They have also been accused of poisoning dogs at shows by putting anti-freeze in their water and letting them out of their cages. This definitely happened but there was not enough evidence to pin it on PETA unfortunately.
Bunch of whack-jobs.
Just swap the breeders for more PETA members and it would allll make sense! lol
There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
I don't think you can be a member of PETA and not be a complete hypocrite.
As best I can tell, they'd have us set all animals free to live wild - even the ones that can't survive without human help, and all be vegan.PETA, people for the ethical treatment of animals, animal rights campaigns include ending fur and leather use, meat and dairy consumption, fishing, hunting, trapping, factory farming, circuses, bull fighting, rodeos and animal experimentation.
But vegans still deprive animals of food and habitat. So if they take their own ideas to logical extreme - they'd have to rid the planet of humans including themselves. For starters they could quit polluting the planet by using fossil fuels and electricity and computers.
Life is lots of compromises and what they think is ethical is not the same as what I think. I'd be quite happy to help them get rid of factory farming, but I can't see why they think it's ok for animals to go fishing, hunting and trapping (yes dolphins and whales and some other creatures set traps), and not humans.
They don't make sense to me - in the same way that fundamentalist religious nuts don't make sense to me either.
Yes and supposedly my dog would prefer it if I never forced him to compete in any dog sports and I fed him only vegetables. I would like to see them watching him working and look me in the eye and tell me that he's not having the time of his life...
As for the trapping thing - what about spiders? They set some fairly impressive traps don't they? There are even spiders that build nets and drop them on unsuspecting prey. Or those fish that have lures and stuff. Or the ant lions who dig pits that their prey can't escape from. Personally I think they should be targeting wasps. Did you know that although the adults are herbivores, they catch and paralyse caterpillars, spiders or whatever else and lay their eggs in them, so that the larva can then eat their way out...
It's like the bleeding heart anti roo cull activists here. I once saw one who had saved a tiny joey and took it to a protest march in the city centre the next day. The poor thing was terrified. How is that more humane than putting a bullet through a roo's head to manage their numbers.
I've been reading a book on animal rights and although there are topics in the book i do not agree with, there are others that leave me pondering. Such as a statement written: When did humans think it was okay to enslave animals? We were all put on this earth together so why do humans think they are superior to animals? Animals have thinking, emotions - everything we do, so why do we think it's okay to keep them in factories, households and pass them around like common goods?
Just take a look and gumtree - Roosters, cats, dogs, horses, guinea pigs etc "fluffy free to a good home, can no longer keep", "Bingo needs a new home because we have children and cannot give him the time he deserves" - all treated like common goods.
Are your animals slaves Kuri?
Humans have the capacity to provide for other species, this is pretty rare elsewhe in the animal kingdom, so is a fairly massive and defining difference as far as humans and animals are concerned.
Can you think of many domestic animals that would benefit from "complete liberation" such as animal rights groups want? Mine might have fun running around for a day, and then they would be hungry, if not injured and in pain.
Yes, we domesticate animals (and plants!) for our own benefit. But the relationship is symbiotic in it's pure form. They benefit and we benefit. It's not necessarily the parasitic exploitation that animal rights groups would have you think. Idiot humans do exploit animals yes, idiot humans also exploit other humans. That doesn't make it the norm.
