PETA folks take time out from killing pets to protest a dog killer (AP)

In late January, the grandstanding hypocrites that comprise the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) organization, petitioned National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell to seek a psychiatric evaluation for former quarterback Michael Vick before he would be allowed back on a football field.

Vick, seeing the light at the end of his prison-time tunnel from his role in a dog-fighting ring, has been one of the animal rights group’s favorite targets since the former Atlanta Falcons’ dog murdering ways came to light.

But it seems that while PETA was holding that gun to the heads of NFL officials, they were implementing their own ethical brand of puppy killing.

According to a just released report by the Center for Consumer Freedom, the folks who tell us that meat is murder, suggest breast milk for our ice cream and target schoolchildren with their anti-circus campaign, killed 95% of the adoptable pets – for an average of 5.8 pets per day – at their Norfolk, Virginia headquarters in 2008.

The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services reported that 2,124 dogs and cats were destroyed last year compared to seven (seven!) that were placed in adoptive homes.

Since 1998, the numbers of pets that have died at the hands of these kind, compassionate animal lovers totals more than 21,000.

Despite a $32 million annual budget, PETA does not operate a single adoption center, nor is there a departmental arm that seeks to find homes for the thousands of pets they murder each year.

I’m guessing naked B-list celebrities, anti-Thanksgiving cartoons and chicken suits for the KFC protests aren’t as cheap as they once were.

Last year, the Center for Consumer Freedom petitioned Virginia’s State Veterinarian to reclassify the PETA Headquarters as a slaughterhouse.

“Since killing pets is A-OK with PETA,” said CCF Research Director David Martosko, “Why should anyone listen to their demands about eating meat, using lab rats for medical research, or taking children to the circus?”

Suddenly, a Bambi burger with cheese, a pair of chinchilla underwear and Dumbo riding a bike doesn’t seem so bad, huh?
