I know many of you, myself included, have been verbally (? Typingly?) attacked on our blogs by self professed PETA members because of our livestock butchering. A writer at the Huffington post has a few things to let us in on. In the past I have informed you of the way they allowed cattle to starve to death during a blizzard in Colorado a few years ago, citing that it would be better for the cattle to die in the valley then end up on a dinner plate.
If you click over to the article, there are graphic pictures of dead pets.
PETA's secret slaughter of kittens, puppies
By Nathan Wingrad
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.

Before the links start coming, yes I have read PETA's reasonings. However this isn't about sick animals, this is about deceit, and neglect on their part. This is about killing healthy, adoptable animals. I have known for years that they euthanize, however I didn't realize how hypocritical they truly were. I am glad for people out there that expose the horrors of how factory farms, puppy mills, and now PETA, run.
