Dead animals found in Dumpster...

Here are two articles. I'm not a cop, but I can "occasionally" put two and two together..

First:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7348495/

Excerpt:
"The animals were found in plastic trash bags and biohazard bags and some had spilled out, he said. The dogs had been dead about two to five days, Holder said.

The bags contained various breeds, including Rottweilers, German shepherds, Labradors and a few small-breed dogs, Holder said. The animals apparently were euthanized and some toys also were found in the bags."


I remember reading this and thinking that some shelter just ran out of space.

Now this comes to light.. (actually, there are quite a few sites with this info, but most news articles quote from this particular site):
http://consumerfreedom.com/news_deta.../headline/2833

Excerpt:
"Authorities in Ahoskie, North Carolina dropped a disturbing bombshell yesterday with the news that they had charged two employees of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) with 31 felony counts of animal cruelty. PETA's Andrew Cook and Adria Hinkle were arrested late Wednesday night after police saw them dump bags containing seven dead puppies and 11 other dead animals in a grocery store's dumpster. Their PETA-owned van, seized by police, contained another 13 animal bodies."

As someone who loves animals, the concept of discarding them in dumpsters disgusts me. Doubly so after reading who has been doing it (and probably just dumping them along the side of the road as in the first article.. PETA'a HQ is in Norfolk I believe).

I became disillusioned with PETA long ago. I have to admit though, that I at least thought they were in it for the money. This behavior is just beyond the pale. If PETA had come across a videotape of some animal shelter dumping dead puppies and kittens in dumpsters, how do you think they would have handled it? Yet they try and justify it when they do it...

that's absolutely horrible! That makes me sick and disgusted to be a human! I don't understand PETA.. all I am hearing about them is horrible things! Aren't they supposed to be FOR the animals?! Are they even doing any good at all??
