    You've got me. I think it may be just that people never fully research something. They simply hear an idea and think it sounds great, and then they dive in. Too many followers and not enough GOOD leaders maybe?

    Who wants to think about their actions? They you actually have to take responsibility for them afterwards! Better just to be seen endorsing the popular stuff.

This was the worst zoo ever when I was a kid - it's a free zoo so just imagine an animal "ghetto" or rather a penal colony as each dwelt in an iron and cement cell like on the old westerns.

    I don't see why they didn't use a tranquilizer dart on that big cat. As far as I remember they didn't kill the polar bears.
    That's pretty upsetting. They should have never been doing that. Hopefully the other got in big trouble.

    wow. You agree with people breaking into laboratories and stealing animals, but don't agree with PETA's (supposedly) less violent tactics? Did I read that correctly? Usually it's the other way around...

    ALF can suck it. Terrorism is terrorism however you want to look at it.

    Agreed 100%.

    Pyro, when you said, "They have gone to the point where swatting flies is a heinous crime, it will not be long before it is wrong to take vaccines or antibiotics for fear of harming the viruses and bacteria", you did know that swatting a fly is not a crime anywhere, right? And, even if there were widespread agreement for such a thing, having PETA support it would be the kiss of death. PETA does so much to undermine its causes that I'm convinced the meat industry is its major financial supporter.
