So who is Ingrid Newkirk besides a person who writes one heck of a macabre will ?
Descendant of Edgar Allen Poe?

Just a run of the mill spokesman for PETA, trying to make a point.

Just make sure if you use eggs in the batter, they come from free range chickens. And, if you put butter on your pancakes...well, suffice it to say we don't wanna go there in this thread

I'm glad I'm not a beneficiary. However, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates are free to choose me if they wish.

I wonder what happened to those 1700 carcasses and their pelts.

Do you suppose PETA sold them to laboratories & furriers so that they could research better ways to clothe naked fashion models?

Hawaii Humane Society does a big business in training volunteers to feed feral kitties. The hungry unsocialized felines are then trapped, neutered/spayed, and released back to the wild. Our bunny's veterinarian is one of dozens who spends a morning a week at their facility practicing her surgery skills.

Exactly. I can probably come up with a half dozen more organizations with similar problem.

We have a big trap, neuter, return (TNR) effort here in Northern Virginia. It's been very effective in controlling the population of feral cats. PETA wouldn't approve of this work.
