Imagine if Toronto Animal Services or the OSPCA or even the Toronto Humane Society reported a 97% kill rate for the animals admitted into their facility. Out of, say, 2366 animals, what if they euthanized 2,301 and only found homes for 8. Would you call that a success or a failure? Would you call that agency with the appalling save rate a humane agency or a slaughterhouse?
Would you call it PETA?
For the umpteenth year in a row, PETA has killed off the vast majority of the animals relinquished into its care. The official numbers are reported here. PETA, an organization with a core value of not eating dead animals, sure is good at making meat.
Their excuse is that no one wanted the animals they took in so they had to kill them. You'd think that with a revenue of $34 million in 2009, PETA could have paid someone to post some ads up on Petfinder to help find homes for some of the animals or they even could have just created homes for a few of those dogs and cats instead of blowing their time and cash on frat boy antics like dressing up as KKK members.
PETA is like some UFO suicide cult. They're all too caught up in their bullshit neo-religion, getting wet just fantasizing about their god/leader, Ingrid Newkirk. It's too easy to point out their obvious pathological behaviours and beliefs but that's not going to change the fanatics' minds about how animal death equals animal salvation and all that other crap their gurus feed them. Or maybe injecting healthy pets with death has become for them some kind of sacrifice ritual to their animal rights deity. How did they ever get so twisted?
PETA's new mantra should be "We love animals so much, we just want to kill them all."
