PETA Issuing Death Threats?

Is PETA showing their true colors again?

From the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance

A recent e-mail sent to an Australian fashion designer from what appeared to be a PETA e-mail address contained an alleged death threat. If found true, PETA will have taken its outrageous acts to a new level.

Fashion designer Alannah Hill issued a public statement against PETA after receiving the alleged threat from a person indicating a relationship with the animal rights group. According to a statement published in several international newspapers, Hill stated that police were contacted on August 4 in order to “investigate a disturbing and heated death threat.” The threat was from the e-mail address “newsmanager@peta.org.”

PETA had been protesting outside Hill’s boutique in Melbourne, Australia by donning Grim Reaper outfits and criticizing use of rabbit fur in her designs.
According to media reports, a PETA staffer indicated that it does oppose Hill’s work, but denied that it was behind the specific threat made in the e-mail.

I could think of a lot different ways to get their point across than wearing grim reaper outfits.

How idiotic is that.

They never cease to amaze me with their stupidity. They are so clueless. I bet they eat beef, what about that cows hide? OMG! (LOL)

Let's not forget the meaning of People Eating Tasty Animals.

The designer ended up caving in to the pressure after an email attacking her son.
