PETA members arrested for animal cruelty.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,159861,00.html

Does anyone besides me find this absolutely hilarious?!

Not because of the alleged animal cruelty, of course.....but because of the well-deserved embarrassment that it brings to such a ridiculous, over-the-top, unrealistic, and self-righteous organization as PETA. Couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch.

Don't know why it's not on CNN, but it's no mystery as to why it's on Fox. No way they could pass on that one.

Having said that, PETA is a whacky organization. Their mission is vital, but somewhere they took a wrong turn.

It's kind of funny, carrying PETA bad news on Fox. I can't quite make a joke out of it because the word, "Fox" is no longer strictly associated with an animal. But you'd think a Fox would defend PETA.....

It is ironic, I suppose. I guess it just shows that Fox News really is Fair and Balanced. They report, you decide.

Compare the Fox News story with this PETA

Fox seems to be much less damning than the local news. So I guess Fox did the reporting, minus the spin.

I don't see any spin in either news report. Both reports seem factual to me. The local news report just has more up to date info than does the Fox report.

Anybody know what the motive was for killing these animals? I don't see where they were making money off the deal. Some of the more far out animal rights types have a problem with the concept of domesticated animals. Were these two just saving these kittens and puppies from having to be somebody's pet? They were clearly going to some trouble and expense to do this. How sick does somebody have to be to kill a healthy puppy or kitten? Good grief.

BTW, I didn't mean to say that there is anything wrong with Fox reporting this story. It is absolutely newsworthy. Fox does some good stuff, all of which is far outweighed by the harm they cause with their shrewd, relentless right-wing spin. They did the right thing by reporting this story, but I couldn't resist taking a cheap shot at them.

Probably just too damn lazy to find homes for the animals. Shoot 'em up with the "death kit" they found in the van and throw them in the garbage.

PETA= cult

I bet PETA was going to try to blame this on Bush somehow....but they got caught first.

That's probably right, but why pick up the animals to begin with? So people will think they were doing great things for the animals? The more I think about this story, the more pissed off I get.

Sanctuary

Dear uncle sold her into the purest kind of slavery.
Hood-eyed little middlemen profited from damaged goods
along the way.
Good angels brought her back to a last Nepal summer.
Debased, hollow-faced, a smile might become her.
Now she's cosied up, cosied up and comforted
in the warm flush of September.
Gone before winter.
Wondering as to might-have-beens.
Somebody's daughter in sanctuary, waiting.

Seen through softer cage of kindness, far and further still away,
from time-warp Victorian zoos
where staring ice cream gameboys play.
Big paws, worn claws and swishing tails.
More damaged goods in the market sales.
Too proud for anger, too late for hate: resigned in dignity.
Gone before winter.
Purring might-have-beens.
Somebody's kitten in sanctuary, waiting.

Somebody near you in sanctuary, waiting.

-- Ian Anderson
