Peta's kill rate almost 100%

Check it out, as filed with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

Peta took in 3,043 owner-surrendered animals and killed 2,981 of them. Gee, that's really humane of Peta, killing almost 100% of the animals given into its care. The stats aren't much better for wildlife - no specifics on the total number taken in, but Peta killed 248 wild animals while releasing or relocating only one.

I wonder if these numbers include any more animals obtained by Peta employees by lying to veterinarians and shelters, then killed and their bodies dumped. Or are those numbers off the books?

Give your money to a reputable animal rescue or support your local humane society. Keep your money away from Peta's needle fund.

What is the 'Others' column? Lots of animals there. Is that for animals collected by bunchers on staff, or what? Stolen? Bought?

It would be interesting to find out.

But I'm certain that Peta would never clarify.

Obfuscation is the name of the game.
