On Tuesday, “People for the Ethical Treatment (PETA)” of Animal staged an anti fur protest in Yakima. PETA member laid a demonstration on the sidewalk on N. 1st St. covered in fake blood and draped in fur. Their legs were stuck in a real animal trap.

PETA says “We hope after this demonstration people will actually prefer to go fur free.” Animals caught in trap are suffering the misery by beating, stomping or bludgeoning them to death.

The large metal traps are illegal in Washington, but are used in America. PETA is travelling across the country to do this demonstration. All the people who see the scene has mixed reaction towards it.

Some of the man yelled and says “good work.” But some says that their could be even more effective way to get the message out. Winnie Clemenson says it is going extreme; there are better ways to do it. He says how can fake fur look like real thing. Above all the reaction PETA believes that great lengths make a strong point.

Two Lithia residents have been charged in animal cruelty case and after all investigation they removed dozens of animals from their home. The animals at their home were not provided with proper food and water.

Hillsborough country Animal Services found four dead dogs when they went to remove more than 80 animals from the property which were living in deplorable conditions. Animal service spokesman also said that one of the four dead dogs was possibly pregnant.

The breeders of the animals live in the main house while most of all animals were left in other house. Investigators arrested the 38-year-old Ian Roth and 43-year-old Christie Roth on Monday. Animal service received an anonymous tip about the site, which houses an animal breeding business.

The dogs were taken to Animal Services, where veterinarians did preliminary animal exams. After the exam they found that some of the dog had tumors, dehydration, dental disease and other infections.

Every year Feroe, Denmark, the young boys of island go to the beach and kill this innocent animal. The Risso’s Dolphin is a playful animal that feels only curiosity towards human kind. But they kill all the dolphin that they are able to reach unmercifully. They actually do this to prove that they are no more kids and are grown up boys. This is the act of cruelty done to those dolphins that actually get close to those boys with the intention to play. I strongly believe that human kind is evoluted enough for us to tolerate such act or be participants of such cruelty.

Do something to stop this act of cruelty from a civilized country. While it may seem incredible but even today this custom continues in Denmark. For many people over there this act to life is unknown: a custom to show entering adulthood. This act is absolutely terrible. No one does anything to prevent this barbarism against an intelligent dolphin that approaches human out of friendliness.

What a shameful thing is this. A very sad scene, there is no worst beast than man!!!!!

We at PETA believe we should all be vegetarians; it’s because we assign a different degree of rights to animals that they deserve. Like on the same level as human rights; you don’t use humans to experiment on either. They intuitively believe it’s wrong, just like any sane person would find human experimenting wrong. I’m just explaining their point of view. You should read some Peter Singer or David DeGrazia, it really makes you think.

Serves him right

New Delhi, Nov 9 (PTI) If caught, they can get away paying a fine of Rs 50. Those who torture and abuse, however, can be equally dangerous to humans and need to be punished accordingly, feel animal activists.
Animal rights activists in Mumbai actually have launched a hunt for the perpetrator who cruelly tortured a stray dog.

People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has announced a reward of Rs 10,000 to anyone who helps to nab the guilty person who pierced both eyes of a dog with a sharp object blinding it permanently.

The animal rights body is pushing for arrest and conviction of those responsible for the crime. It is offering the cash reward to give information to the Bombay Society for Prevention of Cruelty of Animals (BSPCA), which on account of being a member of the Animal Welfare Board of India has the right to prosecute persons on their own.

“It has been proven many times that serial killers and hardcore criminals have been known to have practised violence on animals. We need to bring this link out in the public before many more crimes are committed,” Anuradhna Sawhney, Chief Coordinator, Peta told PTI.

“People who abuse animals are cowards. They take their issues out on the most defenseless beings available to them. Mumbai residents have reason to be concerned,” says Sawhney.

Peta believes that other animals in the area and even human residents may be in danger as long as those responsible for this crime are at large. The NGO is urging residents not to leave animals outside unattended. PTI”

These idiots are as cruel as the stupids who kill dogs to eat,

PETA has sent boxes of ape-shaped vegan chocolates to Sega executives in San Francisco–along with a heartfelt “thank you.” That’s because the gaming giant has taken action and pulled an online video that had the animal rights group seeing red. The video, which promoted SEGA’s new release, Samba de Amigo, featured a dancing, maraca-shaking baby chimpanzee.

PETA contacted Sega immediately after learning about the video and engaged in negotiations with Sega CEO Simon Jeffery and Vice President of Marketing Sean Ratcliffe. Following these negotiations, SEGA removed the video from its Web site and pledged never to use great apes again.

PETA pointed out that chimpanzees and orangutans who are used as “involuntary, unpaid actors” are taken away from their mothers–often when they are just days old–and electrically shocked and beaten during training sessions. A primatologist who spent 14 months working at a California facility that trains great apes for the TV and movie industries observed that trainers kicked, punched, and beat chimpanzees in order to make them obey commands that, to the chimpanzees, are confusing and meaningless.

World-renowned chimpanzee expert Dr. Jane Goodall supports PETA’s efforts to end the use of great apes in the entertainment industry. In March, Goodall and other primatologists wrote in the journal Science that the portrayal of chimpanzees in ads undermines efforts to save these endangered animals.

“All chimpanzees who are trained to perform have been torn from their mothers–a traumatic process that scars both mother and baby for life–and the training methods that they endure are abusive and cruel,” says PETA Director Debbie Leahy. “We applaud SEGA for scrapping this ad and taking a stand against the abuse of great apes.”

David James Elliott might have played debonair vegetarian Navy Commander Harmon Rabb on the popular TV series JAG, but now, PETA’s looking for the real deal. That’s why the group is calling up all privates, generals, sailors, admirals, pilots, and all other members of the U.S. Armed Forces to determine which man or woman will win PETA’s first-ever Sexiest Vegetarian Soldier contest. The contest is a tribute to all the men and women in uniform who are defending the country and animals at the same time.

The contest is open to all current and former military personnel who are at least 18 years of age. All that entrants have to do is fill out a short formand upload a few recent photos. One lucky winner–male or female–will be named on The PETA Filesand will receive a vegan goodie basket loaded with cookies, chocolate, and jerky and a PETA T-shirt. The entry round will end on November 26, and the winner will be notified and announced on December 8.

Why is going vegetarian a smart military maneuver? For one thing, vegetarians are, on average, fitter and trimmer than their meat-eating counterparts, so if soldiers want to be lean, mean fighting machines, the best thing that they can do is keep meat off their plates. Also, consumption of meat and other animal products has been conclusively linked to America’s leading killer diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and several types of cancer. And while even the strongest fighting force on Earth can’t solve all the world’s problems overnight, going vegetarian is the best way to help stop the violence and bloodshed inherent in the meat industry.

“Vegetarian soldiers, sailors, Air Force personnel, and marines earn their stripes for defending the abused every time they sit down to eat,” says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. “After all, what could be sexier than someone with the passion to carry out the rigors of the military and the compassion to protect animals?”

– This morning, PETA fired off a letter to Center for Advanced Research & Technology (CART) Chief Operating Officer Susan Fisher and the teachers in the marketing and advertising department urging them to allow a PETA representative to visit the school. The group wants to educate students about the suffering of mother cows and their babies in the milk industry as well as the health risks that milk can pose to kids. PETA’s letter follows a promotional contest that the California Milk Processor Board is holding at CART and two other high schools. In this contest, classes act as marketing agencies to come up with the next ad for the board’s “Got Milk?” campaign. The winning class will receive a prize worth $2,000.

PETA points out that newborn male calves are traumatically torn from their mothers and confined to tiny, filthy crates before the calves are slaughtered for veal. PETA also explains that consumption of dairy products has been linked to allergies, ear infections, and juvenile onset diabetes in children as well as to leading killers—such as heart disease and some types of cancer—in adults.

“What’s next?” asks PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Inviting tobacco companies into schools to see who can come up with catchiest ad to get kids hooked on cigarettes? If kids knew what happens to dairy cows, calves, and their own bodies in the name of drinking milk, they’d spew.”

PETA has also written to Amador Valley High School in Pleasanton, Calif., and Orange High School in Orange, Calif. For more information, please visit DumpDairy.com.

Susan Fisher, Chief Operating Officer
Center for Advanced Research and Technology

Dear Ms. Fisher,

PETA has recently learned that the Center for Advanced Research and Technology has been chosen to create a new ad for the California Milk Processors Board. Your students are diligently working and functioning as an ad agency to create an ad that encourages their peers to drink milk, but we would like to request equal time so that we can educate them about the suffering that cows endure for dairy production and the health risks associated with drinking milk. Both are serious social issues that deserve an airing.

PETA’s experience is that many kids “have a cow” when shown how the dairy industry treats animals as inanimate “milk machines.” Most kids are kind, and they are usually horrified to learn that male calves born on dairy farms are traumatically taken away from their loving mothers–often winched away by a tractor and a chain around one leg–shortly after birth, and they are confined to crates so small that they cannot even turn around. After 14 weeks, sometimes spent in darkness, they are prodded down the slaughter ramp to be made into veal. Many babies stumble to their deaths because their legs are so swollen and sore from balancing on slippery, waste-covered slatted floors or concrete.

What makes matters worse for students is that drinking cow’s milk puts teens on the road to adult diseases linked to the consumption of meat and dairy, including heart disease, cancer, and strokes. Milk is also the number one source of allergies, and it is linked to ear infections in children, juvenile-onset diabetes, constipation, and obesity. In the last edition of his world-famous book, Baby and Child Care, Dr. Benjamin Spock wrote, “I no longer recommend dairy products. … The essential fats that are needed for brain development are found in vegetable oils. Milk is very low in these essential fats and high in the saturated fats that encourage artery blockage and weight problems as children grow.”

We would like to visit the Center for Advanced Research and Technology to share this information with your students and show them a short video. Obviously, a well-rounded education includes presenting different viewpoints and allowing students to make informed decisions. Please contact me so that we can set a date for our presentation, and contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for your consideration.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals ( PETA )  is protesting a requirement by Chrysler that factory workers must wear leather shoes or face being sent home without pay.

“I hope that you will retract this memo immediately and allow workers to wear shoes or boots made from any of the rugged, safe leather alternatives that exist today,” PETA corporate affairs director Matt Prescott said in a letter to Chrysler CEO Bob Nardelli that was distributed to the media Thursday.

Chrysler spokesman Mike Palese said a recent memo was posted at the Los Angeles parts depot to remind workers to wear appropriate footwear after a manager noticed people wearing canvas shoes.

The standard calls for footwear with leather uppers and slip-resistant soles.

“It is a safety issue,” he said. “We were just re-articulating that, in order to get the folks working there moving in the right direction for their own benefit,” he added.

Palese said that no one was going to get fired as long as they had a shoe with a strong-enough upper and slip-resistant sole.

The PETA letter was sent via an e-mail. It said, “This requirement is likely to offend many, and it may even discriminate against employees whose religious beliefs forbid or discourage the wearing of leather.”

With a string of hits and two successful albums on Bad Boy Records already under their belts, Danity Kane are well on their way to becoming the next female supergroup. These gals are overflowing with talent and compassion because it turns out that they’d rather go naked than wear fur. The pop sensations shed their clothes and posed in the buff for PETA’s sexy new anti-fur PSA, urging their fans and everyone else to “be comfortable in your own skin and let animals keep theirs.”

Since the group formed on MTV’s hugely popular “Making the Band” series, the multi-talented quintet of Aubrey O’Day, Aundrea Fimbres, D. Woods, Dawn Richard, and Shannon Bex has taken the music industry by storm and shows no signs of slowing down. From tours, videos, and guest spots on other albums to appearances on Broadway and the latest season of “Making the Band,” these gals are busy—but not too busy to stand up for a cause they believe in.

Danity Kane bared all in their new ad because they want everyone to know there’s nothing glamorous or beautiful about wearing fur. “Any time we would see people wear it we’d be like, ‘Gosh why’d they wear that? That’s so sad. That was a living animal at one point,'” Aundrea told us.

These songbirds know that behind every collar, cuff, or jacket is a horrible, painful death. Animals such as rabbits, foxes, minks, raccoons—and even dogs and cats—who are killed for their fur are beaten, strangled, electrocuted, and drowned, and many will be skinned alive so they can be made into clothing and accessories. Says Dawn, “Animals don’t have the voice to speak out, and that’s where it’s our place to come in and stand firm with that. And being that we’re artists, we have so much power. A lot is said in these photos, and I always thought that this statement was so beautiful.” Check out what else Danity Kane had to say when we chatted with them during their photo shoot.
