I have been folowing the great PETA court case through sites such as PETA Kills Animals | PetaKillsAnimals.com. I am sure you have as well - but the figures as astounding - "From July 1998 through the end of 2003, PETA killed over 10,000 dogs, cats, and other "companion animals" -- at its Norfolk, Virginia headquarters. That's more than five defenseless animals every day. Not counting the dogs and cats PETA spayed and neutered, the group put to death over 85 percent of the animals it took in during 2003 alone. And its angel-of-death pattern shows no sign of changing...."
But of course I hadn't realised the reason until I saw this letter:
Regarding the story about PETA euthanizing unwanted animals in North Carolina,
I think most people have no idea how extreme the situation is for unwanted animals in that area. Much of the human population there lacks the essentials, so of course homeless dogs and cats are allotted next to nothing. It seems that PETA's ultimate intention was to try to compensate at the very least for the basics that the county is financially unable to provide — a humane death for those unfortunate dogs and cats that nobody wants.

Jeez, where do we start sending the food parcels to for those poor folk in North Carolina, and yep the idea of being killed is some sort of compensation for being a poor homeless doggie is understandable to a complete moonbat maybe. What does she suggest we do with the poor people?
