I'm afraid I'm having a hard time finding references to the court case (Canvace) you mentioned. I think it's a spelling issue, ...could you elaborate more so I that I can look this up? The reason I ask, is because I think you are in error. as I can find no cases in which PETA participated successfully. They do contribute to legal fees for known and convicted terrorists, but they rarely dirty their own hands by going into court themselves. You might want to check your facts, and get back to me on that
Here are a few facts that ARE true and provable:
From July 1998 through the end of 2003, PETA killed over 10,000 dogs and cats. This animals were killed at its Norfolk, Virginia, headquarters. That's more than five animals every day. They put to death over 85 percent of the animals it took in during 2003 alone,...as far as I know, they have the WORST record of any animal protection group on the United States.
In the"Angels for Animals" campaign you started this thread with, they say "In 2004 alone, PETA built and delivered 571 special custom-made doghouses.." In the same year, they took in 2,640 animals, they adopted out only 361 of them. They KILLED 2,278!! Does that sound like they are doing good for animals to you?
Two of their employees are facing charges (31 felony counts of animal cruelty, eight misdemeanor counts of the illegal disposal of dead animals, and a charge of criminal trespassing) because their activities done while "on the clock" in a PETA owned van. They were picking up animals at other shelters (after telling the other shelters' employees that they were going to find homes for them). However, what actually done was that the animals were taken to the National Headquarters of PETA and then euthanized. The bodies of the animals were then disposed of in dumpsters.
Police actually apprehended them in the act of dumping the animals, with more in the back of the van, yet to be dumped. (Here is more info in case you're interested: PETA Kills
PETA employees have targeted children as young as six with graphic cartoons titled "Your Mommy Kills Animals".
They have disputed science and religion, saying that Jesus was a vegetarian, which is contrary to biblical teaching, and which is patently absurd for anyone who has studied the actual history of biblical times!
They support radical, criminal organizations like Earth Liberation Front, and Animal Liberation Front (PETA gave over $70,000 to defend those convicted of burning down a Michigan State University building.)
One of PETA's campaign coordinators, Bruce Friedrich, stated, "blowing stuff up and smashing windows" is something PETA doesn't do "but I do advocate it". That sounds like a terrorist to me. When Friedrich found out that the Oklahoma City bomber, Timothy MacVeigh declined to have any meat in his last meal, Friedrich stated:“Mr. McVeigh’s decision to go vegetarian groups him with some of the world’s greatest visionaries."
In PETA's 1988 IRS Form 990. PETA listed that it contributed $7,500 to the legal defense of Fran Stephanie Trutt, convicted of possessing pipe bombs and prosecuted for the attempted murder of the president of a medical laboratory.
Ingrid Newkirk, founder of PETA was quoted in a magazine as saying: “even if animal research resulted in a cure for AIDS, we’d be against it.”
However, they don't mind when animal research help THEM. Even though PETA claims animal research is useless to the medical field, their Vice President, Mary Beth Sweetland, has no problem injecting insulin to help control her diabetes. Insulin was found, and is created solely through ANIMAL TESTING. She claims that she is not a hypocrite, but she needs her life to continue fighting for animals.
