Shame on PETA

While I've never been a fan of the group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) because of their mostly publicity-seeking star-studded antics, I have usually had a somewhat positive opinion of them because of the cause they espouse, one that's very close to my heart. All that changed when I saw a story on CNN on how PETA has been actively killing animals! (For a short time, you can find the story on the CNN Video page) This is nothing short of an outrage, and a symbol of how many large nonprofits are forgetting the real cause and have become slaves to money, power and fame. Shame on Peta! These pets could have had a loving supportive family, but were instead coldbloodedly murdered!

Personally, I'd rather die by lethal injection rather than starvation.

Given that the best way to get Americas' attention is through somebody like say, Paris Hilton, I wouldn't blame PETA for the star-studded publicity stunts. In america, isn't publicity is all about stunts?
