I've started a couple threads on PETA and also seen other threads and posts on PETA by other BOC members. Take a look at this link about HSUS (Humane Society of the US). They have similar beliefs as PETA, but they try to leech money out of the public by pretending that they perform the same functions as your local humane society. If you ever get mailings from HSUS do not support them....they have the same agenda as PETA. Check this out: http://www.ussportsmen.org/interactive/features/Read.cfm?ID=1750 Takes a lot of guts to use a tragedy like this to leech money from the public and then use it for other purposes. These animal rights groups have no ethics at all IMHO. As always, innocent until proven guilty...but based upon their past behavior, I wouldn't put it past them to do this.
