The Malevolent Murdering Morons of PETA

The Malevolent Murdering Morons of PETA have racked up another record-setting year for killing. Their 2008 report to the State of VA, as required by law, shows that they killed 95.8% of animals admitted to their "shelter" last year. This brings their 10 year kill total to over 21,000 animals, as PETA itself has reported to the state.

They took in 2,216 dogs and cats at their facility in 2008 and killed 2,124. 34 animals were transferred to other facilities, 7 were adopted out. 7 dogs and cats. In a year.

No Kill pioneer Nathan Winograd comments on how PETA lies about its kill numbers and why PETA kills animals - and why Ingrid Newkirk is obsessed with killing as many domestic animals as she can get her hands on using the donations of people who have been lied to, with the enthusiastic support of the Humane Society of the United States.

Terrierman has a great breakdown of the report PETA sends to the State of VA, the yearly foot-dragging and number-fudging on PETA's part, how to interpret the data, and how they compare to other VA facilities.

The copy of PETA's 2008 report to the state is available here.

The NY Times also weighs in... and makes the point that your pit bull is safer with Michael Vick than PETA president Ingrid Newkirk.

"I would go to work early, before anyone got there, and I would just kill the animals myself. Because I couldn't stand to let them go through other workers abusing the animals. I must have killed thousands of them, sometimes dozens everyday."
-Ingrid Newkirk, President of PETA as quoted in The New Yorker.
