PETA does get a lot of bad press, but i think thats the omni's and people working in the meat/dairy fields that are trying to expose PETA's weaknesses. this is my conspiracy theory haha. but it makes sense.
Yea, when you have a faction of activists together, you are going to get a few extremists that take it over the edge, and you are going to get a few people that don't actually care, except for their job.
the big thing ive heard was the euthinasea on PETA's behalf. And while i dont agree with it, it is PETA giving the animals to the humane societies and them not having room for them. If we stopped force breeding animals, there would be no problem!
