PETA is an acronym that stands for: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, this is something I believe in wholeheartedly. I love animals and I hate the thought of any animal suffering, so I do what I'm able to do to help animals and this includes practicing a vegan lifestyle 95% of the time. I'm a firm believer in corporal punishment for those that abuse animals.
There is no denying that Peta has accomplished a great deal of good during its thirty some years of existence. Peta has successfully exposed mistreatment of animals and they have done this at great sacrifice. Such as having their employees go undercover in various places such as laboratories, factory farms, circuses or anywhere animals are used.
If you've ever seen some of their videos you will appreciate the lengths these folks have gone in order to acquire such footage. This often requires going undercover as employees of these facilities in order to obtain the necessary documentation. This is not for the faint of heart.
One example of Peta exposing mistreatment of animals is the Land O'Lakes video. I can only applaud them for uncovering to the world Land O'Lake's mistreatment of cows. There are many more positive examples.

So then, why would someone like me find Peta upsetting? The answer is that Peta appears to be predominantly comprised of flakes that lack the ability to reason. They appear to be one dimensional in their thinking and only see things in terms black or white.
A by-product of unreasonableness is often extreme or radical behavior, this in turn has led to wasted time on issues that really don't have the animals best interest at heart.
As someone that loves animals this is frightening to me, because I fear that their endeavors; especially in latter times, may be counter productive. When the majority of people despise you and view you as radical, then this results in loss of credibility. It also gives selfish thoughtless people ammunition in their hate of anything related to the humane treatment of animals and veganism.
All of us who love animals rely on organizations like Peta to end animal suffering. Those of us who donate want to know that our monies are going toward that goal and not some crazy antic that will only negate the purpose.
So Peta, please stop with the craziness!
