PETA Victim

An exposé on the doublethink and hypocrisy perpetrated by the type of animal rights extremism touted by PETA. For instance: did you know that from July 1998 through December 2005 the group killed over 14,400 dogs, cats, and other “companion animals”? In 2005, 31 felony counts of animal cruelty were brought against two PETA employees for the unlawful disposal of animal carcasses in North Carolina dumpsters.
