Talking PETA wants officials to build gravestone in memory of lobsters who died in crash

This tickled my funny bone and I thought others here might enjoy it, too.

Quote:
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) asked Maine officials on Wednesday for permission to build a large grave to mark the site of a truck crash that resulted in thousands of lobsters spilling out onto a highway.

PETA hopes to memorialize the “countless sensitive crustaceans” who were killed during the Aug. 22 crash in Brunswick, the animal rights group said.

Police said 7,000 pounds of live lobsters were destroyed and it’s suspected it was more than 4,500 lobsters that died, according to the Portland Press Herald.

The grave would “remind everyone that the best way to prevent such tragedies is to go vegan,” the animal rights group said.

A mockup of the gravestone shows a lobster with the words, “In Memory of the Lobsters Who Suffered and Died at This Spot.”

This is the same group who euthanized most of the adoptable cats and dogs in their charge, yet they are concerned about crustaceans.

Someone should walk into PETA headquarters, drop down a few hundred needles and a ton of yarn, and say "You people need a hobby."...

I wish I had known about this crash.

I would have brought melted butter and a bib.

I think the vast majority of people are against cruelty to animals.
With that said, whenever I hear anything about PETA I want to spit. They are a disgusting organization. There are much better organizations out there that actually are involved in a sincere fight against actual cruelty to animals.

In short, PETA has been busted stealing people's actual pets and inevitably (in a short period of time) euthanizing them.
Their "animal shelters" kill more than they help.

And then they perpetrate incredibly stupid publicity stunts like that described in post #1...



At PETA’s shelter, most animals are put down. PETA calls them mercy killings.

Below link has some pictures of animals PETA has killed, so be warned.

From a billboard I saw somewhere:

"There's room for all of God's creatures; right next to the mashed potatoes."

I laughed at that, but there is a world of difference (IMO) between killing an animal for food, and intentionally hurting a domestic animal. for virtually ANY reason.

Lowest of the low, right in there with child and elderly abusers.

I completely agree with you on this. I could never harm another creature for any reason outside of food or compassion for an animal in severe pain with no hope of recovery.
