Sheesh.
What lunacy guides these PETA creeps?
These cattle aren't in feed lots.
They are free range cattle spread over thousands of square miles of land.
Australian graziers are expert at planning cattle numbers for the weather conditions but nothing much can be done when drought and bushfire destroy the cattle's food stocks.
These cattle are too weak to follow the herd so you can't round them up.
There are far too many to collect by truck.
All you can do is collect some of your best specimens to form the genetic basis of the next herd and hope that rain comes.

Can't expect the morons at PETA to use anything even mildly close to common sense.
Those delusional idiots don't have the faintest idea what goes on in the real world.

What happened to "just leave them alone"? The ARs say that nature is "kind, compassionate, and fair". Now they want animals "protected" from nature????? Pure lunacy! But then, that is what we've come to expect from the lunatards of the AR movement.

Death by wildfire is natural causes. These are the types of deaths that PETA advocates FOR.

PeTA is a radical organization that financially supports eco/animal rights terrorists and applauds their violence. They are extremely anti-human and believe that they are the elite with all the answers. However, PeTA kills more animals in one year than the average hunter will kill in a life time of hunting yet they portray hunters as blood thirsty savages who kill indiscriminately for the "thrill". Nothing could be farther from the truth. Most hunters use/eat what they kill while, on the other hand PeTA will pick up pets for supposed "rescue" and immediately kill them in the back of the PeTA DEATH VAN. What Peta kills ends up illegally tossed in the dumpster behind the local convenience store. PeTA doesn’t give a ratsass about animals, they're only interested in imposing their insane philosophy on the rest of the human race and if they need to kill to do it.......they're okay with that.

Yeah, you're right.

Notice there's no mention of the roos, possums, snakes, birds etc. etc. etc. that would have also been affected by those fires.
I read an article about the same thing a few days before it was posted here, one of our Australian politicians told PETA to "either put up or shut up".
He said all they cared about was trying to make the hard lives of the cattle owners worse, he also mentioned PETA gave no donations for feed or anything, all they were interested in was suing the owners for something that wasn't caused by the owners anyway.

One of the few times I actually agree with a politician.
Those fools at PETA are complete & utter nuts.
