An Animal Rights Perspective on Living with Dogs & Cats I am pleased to announce…
A truly harmonious relationship with them and with the environment of which they are a part is simply not possible so long as we continue to kill them or turn a blind eye to their suffering as a result of something as ultimately irrelevant as their color or how many of them exist.
Public anger over the killing of Cecil has driven calls for prosecution, shut down the poacher’s dental practice, caused the U.S. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife to offer assistance in prosecuting the poacher Walter Palmer to the Zimbabwean government, and renewed calls for an end to “big game” hunting. But VegNews is admonishing people for doing so.
Why? Why does PETA kill animals? Why does PETA call for more killing even in the face of alternatives? Why do they fight efforts to save animals when they are supposed to be an organization that helps them? And why do they embrace even abusive shelters when community activists try to reform them?
