This PETA group is a bunch of wack jobs! If you want to contribute to a organization that actually helps animals donate to the ASPA or your local animal shelters.

Every PETA worker should be required to spend at least one month shoveling manure from a dairy barn,.. give 'em something moooving to really get worked up over. Then come talk to us about cow memorials.

I'm curious,..
Are all PETA members from India?

PETA, plee-ease, get a freaking grip!
This is an example of twisting an original humane concept into organized idiotic nonsense! They're so blinded by zealotic fever they're repulsing the very public they seek audience and sympathy with.

That ties in with the difference between animal welfare and animal "rights." Where should animal rights stop? Should they get to drive, vote, decide their careers, have reproductive freedom? I can see the welfare mindset - making sure they are fed, watered, cared for, protected from the elements, and not abused.

I may sound like I am contradicting myself from the cat thread, but I'm not. My view is close to the middle, and just like a**holes shouldn't be saying, "Shut up and just get another cat," I don't think people should be anthropomorphizing either. There are some things other animals can never fully appreciate.

On occasion, a dog gets a credit application or a cat gets subpoenaed to testify. I remember a family who brought a dog to court because they received a subpoena for him. They kept trying to explain that he was a dog, and they kept saying to bring him to court or they could get in trouble for contempt, obstruction, or whatever. So the only way out was to bring the dog and show them all to be fools. That straightened things out.

Here we are becoming more secular as a nation, and then here comes a group advocating sacred cows.

I wonder if Hindus exclaim "Holy s**t!" when they see cow manure? Okay, I know that was wrong of me to say, though one can only wonder.

How 'bout using that time, energy and misplaced motivation to repair fences? Preventing future meat martyrs?

"Meat martyrs." That is so funny in so many ways on a PETA thread.

Haa, Ranchers can always use a hand with the cows. Maybe Peta should have their members show their dedication by example and help keep the pens clean so them cows will have clean hooves and not be milling around, stepping in crap.

That would be more ethical treatment for the cow than gathering in groups, with signs and yelling about how bad ranchers are treating cattle. Who, by the way are the ones cleaning up after them in the first place.

Yes after a 150 ton road train cleans them up they become quite tender scattered all over the place.
In the Northern Territory of Australia we have people come from all over the world to ride bicycles long distance in the outback.
What they aren't told in the travel brochures is that roadkill stinks quite a distance before they get anywhere near the beast and the same distance as they are peddling frantically away from the dreadful smell that lingers on and on.

Unlike many of you,I raise cattle. These are the DUMBEST critters for their size God ever put on this earth. Fences are the only way to contain them. If PETA wants to progress in these matters and change their public image, repairing fences is the only positive step. Building memorials is something that might happen in India, here it would be the acme of stoopidity.

A man with good taste. Cheddar cheese (or a small dab of cream cheese inside the patty prior to grilling), grilled zuchinni wedges, roasted corn on the cob...this is turning into a good forum. Thanks for the idea!
