I don’t normally trash most animal advocate groups. However that’s not what PETA is. I’m not quite sure what part of “PETA KILLS ANIMALS” that it’s followers just don’t seem to understand. PETA seems to think there should be no companion animals, and that animals are better off dead than living with humans. I don’t agree with that philosophy. It just doesn’t work for me on so many levels. Two of the most important reasons are that it sets up this continuous killing cycle that we are now seeing in these so-called shelters today, and the fact is people and animals need the love and companionship they get from each other. I think as a society we could do a better job at solving this problem if not for the greed factor that’s involved. I’m sure we can come up with better, more compassionate ways to solve this problem other than this continuous killing cycle we’re stuck in. Seriously, if this is the best, most creative solution that we (as a supposedly intelligent species) can do for our animals, than there is probably little hope for any of us.
Maybe instead of teaching fear, hatred, intolerance, greed, and over breeding of ourselves and our animals, we should teach love, compassion and how to live in balance with our natural surroundings.
