I’ve worked/volunteered with two situations where PETA’s undercover actions have exposed some really horrific situations. For that work, I am grateful to them and their people.
That being said (and this is coming from someone with very strong feelings about animal rights), I don’t agree with many of their methods, actions, or professed positions.
This is a news report on one of the situations I volunteered to help with (over 26,000 animals were eventually accounted for) - if you Google “US Global Exotics PETA” you’ll find the undercover videos: I’d recommend against doing so.
Many of their leaders think no animal should be kept as a pet/companion: they honestly believe euthanasia is a better option than a life in “captivity” (as it’s been explained to me - I begged to differ).
And all that being said, I’ve not read the links upthread and will refrain from doing so, for personal reasons.
