In southeastern Colorado’s most recent blizzard like snowstorms over 240,000 cattle have been left stranded starving and cold. The National Guard units are helping ranchers in frantic attempt to rescue the suffering cattle. 15-foot snowdrifts make it impossible to reach the animals by road and so the National Guard is airlifting bales into the area to at least provide food for the stranded cattle. (Photo: Colorado National Guard crew chief Tom Castillo drops hay Wednesday to cattle near Lamar from a UH-1 helicopter, one of eight aircraft used in the drops.)
Enter PETA: Colorado Governor Bill Owens called PETA “a bunch of losers” and “frauds”. In addition the Governor expressed utter amazement that; “PETA doesn’t want to feed freezing cattle”. He stated that “it’s symbolic of what PETA stands for” and that PETA “is a strange group of people. DON’T send money to PETA”.
Why is Governor Owens so upset with PETA The cuddly animal lover organization? Maybe they are not as cuddly and caring as some like us to think.
The Governors justified outburst started shortly after KRFX morning hosts Rick Lewis and Michael Floorwax called PETA to ask them if PETA would help feed and rescue the stranded cattle herds. After all that is what PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) stand for, helping animals in distress is the ethical thing to do. Right? Not according to PETA spokeswomen Reannon Peterson who took the call, and in typical PETA fashion replied: "You're going to save them, and then in six months they're going to be killed and end up on someone's plate. So I don't know that it's really the most noble cause." When asked what about helping to feed the wild animals that starve too Peterson said: "It's an act of God. There's really nothing to be done." Remember, these are the same people that at very turn portray hunters as cruel and wicked people.
People in Colorado now shaking their heads in disbelieve about what PETA really stands for. But honestly what can you expect of a organization whose founder and President publicly declared: “I wish that the foot and mouth disease and mad cow come here (North America) it would be good for animals, good for human health and good for the environment."
PETA is the organization that brutally disposes “slaughters” 90% of the animals (PDF file) that have been given into their custody or that they snatched out of pet owners backyards. It is also the same organization that was caught killing dozens of puppy dogs and little kittens in the back of PETA vans and then dumped these cute baby animals in a trash container at a Wal-Mart. Two PETA employees and paid animal killers awaiting trial on January 22nd, 2007 for animal cruelty.
While these may come as news to some of my readers, I have known and reported about PETA’s , the Humane Society of the United States plus every other bigoted, self-righteous, hypocrite animal lover groups true anti animal welfare and anti human agenda for the past ten years. I am glad that more and more ordinary everyday people wake up and smell the rat.
