PETA Wants OBAMA to Ban Torture of Animals, But Still Kills Pets

After Barack Obama issued an executive order banning torture, PETA whined that the president didn't do enough, and wrote a letter asking him to ban certain training exercises that involved animals.

In one of their blogs complaining about how animals are treated, PETA said "thousands of live animals are shot, stabbed, dismembered, burned, and poisoned every year in Department of Defense (DoD) training exercises designed to train medics and infantry in how to treat various human battlefield injuries."

I think Obama needs to pay attention to PETA. Because if anyone knows about needlessly killing animals, it's PETA.

That's because, PETA kills animals by the thousands.

Let me say it again: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals kills pets by the thousands. According to the website PetaKillsAnimals.com, since 1998, PETA has killed over 21,000 animals.

That works out to five animals PETA killed every day. They also contracted with a Virginia Beach company to cremate the kittens and puppies they killed.

In fact, last year PETA took in 2,216 animals, adopted out 7, and didn't get to kill transferred 34 other animals. In other words, they saved 1.85% of the animals they took in. The remaining 98.15% of animals were ones they poisoned (you know, like they were complaining about to President Obama).
