Some animal activists I agree with but not the crazy loonies.

You believe Penn & Teller? Ok


Lol. You got sensitive. Are you an animal rights activist? :-D

I don't necessarily believe Penn & Teller which is why I added the disclaimer. It's one of those things that is so outlandish that it is probably true. You can watch the episode of their cable show on YouTube if you're interested. The whole episode is dedicated to PETA and it's strangely fascinating.

Sky News wrote:The comments were quickly condemned by the zoo, politicians and other animal rights groups.

"The killing of an animal has nothing to do with animal protection," said Wolfgang Apel, head of the German Federation for the Protection of Animals.

Mr Albrecht has claimed he was quoted out of context.

He explained that although he thought it was wrong of the zoo to have saved the cub's life, now that the bear can live on his own, it would be equally wrong to kill him.

Assuming that the Penn & Teller statistic is correct, that still isn't really a condemnation of PETA. Often times euthanizing an animal is the best thing for it.

I'm not defending PETA here, as an organization, I think they are ridiculous and probably do more harm than good, but I also couldn't care less whether or not this cub is put down. If it was a goat, or a fish, or a dog, or a bird, nobody would bat an eye, but it's furry, and cute, so people don't want it killed.

In a perfect world the bear will be raised to full-size, then be shot dead by zoo officials after it goes on a muderous rampage killing a bunch of zoo-goers (hopefully PETA members there protesting over something).

Yeah I don't disagree with that. Not to take this thread too far OT but the point of the P&T show was to illustrate the hypocrisy between PETA's lobbying and their actions. They were lobbying for more money in order to stop euthanasia in government run facilities.

Animal #1: "I'm an otter."
Dennis Leary: "What do you do?"
Otter: "I swim around on my back all day and do cute, little human things with my hands."
Dennis Leary: "You're free to go."

Dennis Leary: "Next! What are you?"
Animal #2: "I'm a cow."
Dennis Leary: "Get on the truck!"
Cow: "But I'm an animal. I have rights."
Dennis Leary: "You're a baseball glove. Now get on the truck!"
