Thank you for contacting PETA with your concerns regarding SaveToby.com, which have been shared with the appropriate staffers here.
Sadly, some people regard the Internet as a medium for sick jokes. Often, those who develop or contribute to hostile or otherwise abusive Web sites do so simply to draw attention with offensive content. Of course, such sites are in very poor taste but, unfortunately, are usually legal. Since these heartless people are encouraged by attention, the most effective way to discourage them is to avoid visiting their sites and to urge others to do the same.
PETA cannot endorse giving money to SaveToby.com, since doing so will only encourage other cruel individuals to threaten animals in order to extort money from compassionate people.
You may wish to complain to the site's internet service provider (ISP) and request that the site be removed. An investigation may determine that the site's content violates the ISP's user agreement. To find the ISP of this site, please visit http://www.H4HA.org/stopcruelty/query.html. You can also submit offensive sites to the Animal Cruelty Action List at http://www.H4HA.org/stopcruelty.
It is important to remember that rabbits, as well as millions of cows, chickens, pigs and other animals also suffer and die daily on factory farms and in slaughterhouses and butcher shops. To learn more about ways to stop this cruelty, please visit http://www.GoVeg.com.
We hope that you find this information helpful. Thank you for your compassion for animals.
Someone needs to remind Peta that millions of rabbits, squirrels, snakes, moles, voles, and other animals that live on fields are viciously torn apart when fields are harvested with combines. So, stop this cruelty PETA, plant and harvest your own grain! Oh wait, thats inconvenient, so you aren't going to do it. Hypocrites.
