    Posted July 25, 2013 at 8:55 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Other

    The City of Salem, Oregon has denied People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) request to erect a statue in honor of approximately 5,400 of chickens killed, wounded, distressed or missing in action from a truck crash earlier this month. The statue, designed by cartoonist Harry Bliss, stands over five feet tall and depicts a bloodied chicken on crutches. It’s a pointless stunt designed […]

    PETA’s Sinking Ship

    Posted July 15, 2013 at 4:28 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    As we wrote last week, PETA’s long-standing practice of euthanizing over 90 percent of the dogs and cats in its pet shelters has garnered attention from the New York Times. Apparently, we’re not the only ones who picked up on this coverage, as the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette also editorialized today on the hypocritical position in which PETA has placed itself […]

    PETA’s Shelter Killing Gets NYTimes Treatment

    Posted July 9, 2013 at 11:30 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ name should say it all: A group of people who are standing up for dogs and cats to be treated well. At least that’s what PETA would have you to believe, such as when it pictures a cute dog on its “Donate Now” webpage. But as a recent article in The New York Times makes clear, if that dog ends up in the radical animal […]

    Is PETA SLAPPing the Internet?

    Posted May 29, 2013 at 9:25 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Trial Lawyers

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) doesn’t like it when other people — including us, through our PETA Kills Animals project — point out that the world’s most notorious animal liberation group kills large numbers of dogs and cats in its Virginia animal shelter. Last year, state records show that PETA killed nearly […]

    Are We All Vegans Now?

    Posted April 5, 2013 at 3:39 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Dairy, From CCF, Livestock, Meat

    Claiming that vegetarianism is just about to break through, this time is a classic animal liberationist tactic to peer-pressure omnivores into giving up their milk, bacon, and eggs. We covered a story last week that said all the cool pre-tweens were going veggie—a report that was full of more holes than Swiss cheese. Now the […]

    Posted April 1, 2013 at 3:34 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    The sordid tale of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) doggy-and-kitty-killing ways has made a big splash across the pond, and a reporter with the Sunday edition of The Guardian sat down with the group’s president, Ingrid Newkirk, to let her explain herself.

    PETA’s True “Colours” Exposed

    Posted March 21, 2013 at 3:34 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    For all the talk People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) offers on “ethical treatment,” the group does seem to kill a lot of pets in its animal shelter — over 1600 last year, for a kill rate just shy of 90 percent. Our PETA Kills Animals project collects PETA’s animal record summaries provided […]
