    Posted April 11, 2012 at 4:34 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    We’ve been exposing the lethal little secret of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for some time now. The animal rights activist group whose leader has said “a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy” has killed over 27,000 animals at its Virginia “animal shelter” since 1998. So it didn’t […]

    Celebs Turning against PETA?

    Posted April 10, 2012 at 4:22 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, Celebrities, From CCF

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is famous for using celebrities (frequently in a state of undress) in its advertisements. And given the ability of these self-defined “complete press sluts” to shock the media into paying attention, you might think that America’s entertainment elite are all on board with PETA’s radical agenda. However, […]

    You might remember that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (the ones they don’t kill, anyway) recently sued Sea World, claiming that the park’s famous performing whales were actually slaves. The Daily Show’s Wyatt Cenac made fun of PETA at the time for suggesting that animals were the moral equals of humans forced to […]

    Posted March 5, 2012 at 1:11 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    The first time our exposure of hypocritical pet-killing by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) hit the streets of New York, it looked like this: Now, the city’s media are joining in the outrage. In response to our revelation that PETA killed 95 percent of the dogs and cats it housed in its […]

    The Daily Show Takes on PETA

    Posted February 17, 2012 at 6:03 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) isn’t known for its sense of humor. PETA’s tongue was nowhere near its cheek when the group took up the cause of five performing whales at Sea World, arguing before a federal judge that the whales were slaves subject to emancipation under the Thirteenth Amendment to the […]

    PETA’s (Killer) Whale of a Tale

    Posted February 10, 2012 at 2:27 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    The animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is known for its bizarre media stunts, but its recent lawsuit just might take the cake. A California federal judge threw out PETA’s suit, filed on behalf of five orcas, claiming the animals’ rights are being violated under the 13th Amendment, which prohibits slavery. In reaction to the ruling, PETA argued that […]

    PETA in Double Court Trouble?

    Posted February 7, 2012 at 6:01 pm in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Trial Lawyers

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is taking to America’s courts to give animals legal “rights.” You might remember the utterly frivolous lawsuit filed by PETA against Sea World, which argued that the park’s famed killer whales were in fact “slaves” under the 13th Amendment. A federal judge in California held a hearing […]

    Sorry, Ruby: PETA Killed Healthy Animals, Too

    Posted November 10, 2011 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, Celebrities, From CCF

    Aussie model and PETA anti-fur campaigner Ruby Rose wrote today that she’s troubled by our investigation into People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) animal-killing activities. Rose was "shocked" to find out that our accounting of PETA’s substantial slaughter of adoptable dogs and cats is accurate, but unfortunately she bought PETA’s spin that it only […]

    Federal Court Tramples Three-Ring Legal Circus

    Posted October 31, 2011 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF, Trial Lawyers

    We’ve been following the campaign that animal rights groups have been waging for nearly a decade in federal court against Feld Entertainment, parent company of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Animal rights activist groups claimed that the world’s largest circus was abusing elephants, but a federal court dismissed the complaint. The radicals […]

    Hey PETA, The Constitution Wasn’t Signed With a Needle

    Posted October 26, 2011 at 12:00 am in Animal Rights Extremism, From CCF

    The suits (not to be confused with the scantily-clad women) at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are back in the news, this time for suing SeaWorld. Apparently, PETA’s “a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy” philosophy holds that the various orcas performing in the Shamu shows are “slaves,” so […]
