Kona has provided sound evidence of their unacceptable treatment of pit bulls though

True. I actually shot them an email. Let's see if they respond.

Good plan, let us know what they say!

Why is the suffering and killing of animals wrong? Because the value of a sentient organism's life is priceless. They are their own beings and have their own lives and loves. They have higher emotions and thought processes. Their minds are different from ours in degree, not kind - meaning that fundamentally there are critical similarities.

They are certainly very good at promoting veganism and dramatically reducing demand for factory farming
LedBoots and Go Vegan like this.

it takes guts to be gentle and kind

I must have been unclear in my post. Peta focuses much of its resources into helping people learn to go vegetarian and vegan. This saves many, many more animals than if they just wanted to save pit bulls, or cats, or all companion animals.

If you read the stats I posted, you may understand why I would not demonize Peta. I disagree with them vehemently if they are trying to wipe out pit bulls, but I'm really happy about all the vegetarians and vegans they have helped along the way.

I'd rather demonize KFC and McDonalds and all the people that eat meat, not those that are trying to, no matter how bizarre their methods.
