Forest Fancies

“I realize there’s something incredibly honest about trees in winter, how they’re experts at letting things go.”

I'm Jenna. grad student. new york state. ecologist. naturalist. environmentalist. dog-lover. birder. nerd. I love procrastinating, science, music, nature, photography, interesting people, books, learning, astronomy, hiking, chocolate, peanut butter, tea, and coffee. I also love meeting new people, so say hello!

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is an organization that publicly claims to represent the best interest of animals — indeed their “ethical treatment.” Yet approximately 2,000 animals pass through PETA’s front door every year and very few make it out alive. The vast majority — 96 percent in 2011 — exit the facility out the back door after they have been killed, when Pet Cremation Services of Tidewater stops by on their regular visits to pick up their remains. Between these visits, the bodies are stored in the giant walk-in freezer PETA installed for this very purpose. It is a freezer that cost $9,370 and, like the company which incinerates the bodies of PETA’s victims, was paid for with the donations of animal lovers who could never have imagined that the money they donated to help animals would be used to end their lives instead. In fact, in the last 11 years, PETA has killed 29,426 dogs, cats, rabbits, and other domestic animals.

^Also, the founder of PETA, Ingrid Newkirk, was quoted as saying that animals do not have a “right to life.”  The article alleges that 90% of the animals brought to PETA are euthanized within 24 hrs.  Such hypocrisy coming from an organization that takes so many extreme measures to “protect” animals. Shame on you, PETA.
