Re: [animalrights-177] ps PETA MARCH

Ingrid Newkirk doesn't want to warehouse animals in cages.  I understand that, but apparently at the PETA "shelter" animals are not even given a chance at adoption, which is a worse fate for homeless animals than in city shelters where they at least have eight days.  I heard a report from a former PETA (eye witness) worker that an elderly gentleman, who could no longer keep his beloved rabbit, took her to PETA's shelter where he was guaranteed that a happy forever home would be found for his pet.  Turns out, they took the healthy rabbit immediately to the back and euthanized her.  In my opinion, that's blatant lying -- immorality.  The old man would NEVER have left his rabbit there if he had known there would not be the promised home for her and that she would be dead within minutes -- betrayal to the rabbit and to the man -- unconscionable. 
As we all know, PETA has done many good things.  Their undercover, on-the-scene video footage exposing all manner of animal horrors should be commended.  But as far as the stray and homeless are concerned, I certainly wouldn't trust PETA one iota.

Also, PETA does not comprehend the interconnections of issues.  At a recent PETA event in Hollywood, featuring Ms. Newkirk, the beverage table included Sweet & Low, Equal and Splenda -- all full of toxic chemicals and tested extensively on a wide variety of animals, with negative health effects, yet marketed to the human population -- Glaring proof that animal experiments are not given credence even by the very fools who conduct them.  In many ways, PETA is from the old thought of the 1980's.  Todays enlightened activist can clearly connect the dots between the various movements for compassionate reverence for all life and those for individual and planetary health -- It's all ONE.

In my opinion, PETA should get out of the "shelter" business and they should promote healthful, organic, GMO-free, non-toxic refreshments at their gatherings -- anything less makes them liars (regarding the former) and unenlightened (regarding the latter).
