PETA Employees Charged With Animal Cruelty

PETA spends millions of donated dollars attempting to convince the public that they care about the mistreatment of animals. Little did anyone know that PETA was involved in the very mistreatment they protest.

Police have filed charged Andrew Benjamin Cook, 24, of Virginia Beach, and Adria Joy Hinkle, 27, of Norfolk, VA, each with 31 felony counts of animal cruelty and eight misdemeanor counts of illegal disposal of dead animals.

As well as being employees of PETA, they were caught driving a van registered to PETA.

What makes this report especially disturbing is that the dead animals were supposed to be collected from local animal shelters supposedly to protect them from euthanization. PETA president Ingrid Newkirk has already issued a conflicting statement claiming that the animals were being collected and returned to the PETA office for euthanization.

Let's see if we have this straight - PETA is now in the business of killing animals? The great protector of animal rights is in the business of murdering helpless homeless animals? We certainly believe that all PETA members must demand a full explanation from their leaders for this even and for Newkirk's statement regarding euthanization. Alas, we know that ain't going to happen and somehow PETA will try to dodge responsibility and claim victim status.
