I’m sure most of you know who PETA is and what it stands for. But just in case you don’t, it stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. I think that’s right. It might be worded a little different but you get the idea. This group does a lot of good but just like any other group, they get out on a limb on some things. Did you know that they can come to your house and if by chance your dog has turned his water over and they see that the dog doesn’t have any water, you can be charged with animal cruelty even if you make sure the dog has water every day when you get home. I don’t think that right.
Throwing flour on women wearing fur is crazy. The animals that were used to make these fur coats were farm raised, not trapped like they used to be. They were well fed and then, yes killed for their fur. These animals are not then simply thrown out to rot, they are used for dog food and stuff like that. These animals are treated better while they are alive than they would have been in the wild. God gave us creatures for food, warmth and as companions too.
Yes it is wrong to club seal cubs for their fur. I’m glad they are against that and anything that can lead to the extinction of a creature that God has given us. Gluttony is a sin and can lead to the extinction of a whole species and with that in mind, they are doing a great thing.
But they don’t want deer hunted either. Do you know what happens when there are too many deer in an area? The deer don’t have enough food and then suffer, get sick and die a slow and painful death. I’m sure there are some that suffer a slow and painful death when shot by hunters but as long as these hunters eat the animal, they are actually helping the deer that in the woods by thinning them out. That’s far more humane than letting them overpopulate and die of disease and malnutrition isn’t it? I think so. All of this is just my opinion and if you see it differently, feel free to comment all you want and I’ll be glad to answer.
