If PETA kept its ludicris ideas to themselves it would be okay but their going around to schools handing out their awful propeganda and trying to get kids into their stupid ideas any common sense person sould have absolutly nothing to do with PETA and its band of animal rights stupidheads

Mari, thank you for showing me that there STILL ARE educated people in this world. I totally agree with your post. People need to stop overreacting to the fact that PETA was approaching children. These same people are the ones that think children are stupid. They are smart individuals who can make smart decisions and decide between right and wrong. Hiding your children from the truth will keep them from becoming educated. Children know whats going on. They have a natural love for animals and would definitely not go to a circus if they knew the truth. RIngling Bros. is full of lies. There are videos of their circus trainers abusing animals and hurting them. I am so tired of people being so ignorant and shooting down people who are trying to make a difference for the better in this world. Thank you PETA.
If you think PETA is so great and helpful to animals, go check out how many dogs they euthanize in the back of vans daily..its in the thousands. All verifiable and admitted by the President of PETA.. go do a websearch and then see how great you think they are.

PETA gives everyone who actually cares about animals a black eye. They are a detriment to the cause of treating animals humanely.
