Absolutely profound! Let's get this out there and try to get as many people as we can to read this! I am sharing now. Fantastic, Robin!

Thank you, Robin, for speaking out! I live in northeastern NC where PETA has quite a history of doing exactly these kinds of things. I find this story and Maya's picture to be absolutely haunting, and terrifying. It looks to me like the CA is afraid to go up against PETA and their millions. I attended the PETA trial in Hertford County, NC in 2007, and I saw their lawyers in action. And that just confirms to me that there is no justice where there is privilege and money. Please keep speaking out.

People that support PETA have no idea what they are actually supporting. peta kills just as many animals as our shelters do. They are a 501(c) 3 non -profit. They use your donations for things other than there intended purposes.One thing I would like to bring to the publics attention is peta is not compliant with IRS guidelines for 501's. They have 1 director. To be compliant a non-profit is required to have at least 3 board members

I have given donations to PETA, but will not be donating anymore.

PeTA and Ingrid Newkirk have long believed that people and non-human animals do not belong in the same world together. She truly abhors animal suffering but rather than help the animal and prosecute the abuser, she would rather just kill the animal.

Please read the following article with quotes from Ingrid Newkirk. It will open your eyes.

Ingrid Newkirk, founder of PETA, quotes:

"We do not advocate "right to life" for animals."
On a postcard to Nathan Winograd, a neuter/release and no-kill shelter advocate[16].

""Euthanasia is the kindest gift to a dog or cat unwanted and unloved.
At a press conference in 2005, after two PETA employees were arrested for animal cruelty after dumping hundreds of dead animals in a dumpster

"In the end, I think it would be lovely if we stopped this whole notion of pets altogether."
Newsday, 1988 February 21.

"Pet ownership is an absolutely abysmal situation brought about by human manipulation."
Harper's, 1988 August 1.


Looks to me like PETA dug deep into their pockets and have paid people off. Demand an investigation, subpoena and audit bank accounts of the CA and farmer in question. To believe PETA was helping a livestock farmer round up strays is

i sound like a broken record- but people see all animal groups the same. i tell those not to give to high-profile groups. keep it local, do your homework. and best of all, VOLUNTEER!

I am in Virginia Beach and feel like I have been screaming into the wind over this-I cannot tell you how grateful i am to have strong voices speaking out for these poor innocent victims. PETA was once an organization that I held in high regard. As a high school student, I would clip articles and send them directly to the headquarters in DC. I am so horrified to learn that these people are nothing more than a very corrupted group of frauds. We have to seek justice and spread this. Reports on the news indicate PETA has complete support from the commonwealth's attorney and says "this is law school 101". Well then-why are we still in the dark here? There is a whole lot of money in the hands of PETA. Something shady is happening here and it will be covered up. -they are waiting for us to forget about it-please don't give up.Please
