http://www.bowsite.org/bowsite/menu/NEWS/GETNEWS.CFM?ID=227 PETA Attempt to mess up hunters - backfires PETA Fails in Attempt to Thwart Hunters Assoc. Press (Columbus, OH) If you are familiar with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), then you are aware of the fact they will do almost anything to protect animals. This year's efforts to save Ohio's deer from the annual statewide gun season has backfired. For safety's sake, hunters in Ohio are required by law to display at least 400 square inches of hunter's blaze orange on their person when in the woods. Capitalizing on the fact that hunters do not usually shoot orange, PETA recently bulk purchased blaze orange vests and have been affixing them to live-trapped deer in Youngstown suburbs. According to PETA spokesperson Katie Reese, a total of 405 vests were successfully put into circulation prior to this week, with additional specimens still being caught and vested. Youngtown entrepreneur Guy Lockey, of Guy's Outdoors has spit in the face of PETA by offering rewards for the returned vests this week. Hunters who can successfully bag a vested deer can pay $5 for random and biggest animal awards. As of Tuesday, 308 of the vests had already been recorded as bagged with most of the hunters registering for Mr. Lockey's drawing. It's so easy, you can see them coming a mile away" said one first year hunter after checking in his first spike buck. ODNR officials are worried that the poorly thought out plan by PETA might get somebody shot instead of saving the deer. "Hunters have turned their plan upside down, we're just hoping that nobody gets hurt and are hoping that none of the vested animals get tangled in brush" said an unnamed ODNR official. "PETA has really outdone itself this time." Ohio's statewide gun season is open to shotguns only and is scheduled to close on Saturday.

PETA should be held responsible for any injuries incurred from using hunter safey vests. I hear the next great idea is wrapping themselves in deer skins during hunting season. [:D]

I requested some veggie recipes from PETA via their website, so I got on their mailing list. They sent me a postage paid envelope requesting a donation. Using their own tactics, I sent them back their envelope attached to a cinder-block. Wonder how much that cost first class mail? Idiots!

Ringling Brothers, the circus company, took out a full page ad in the L.A. Times blasting PeTA for their underhanded legal tactics and their squandering of donated funds to the detriment of the very animals they claim to represent. I wish I had a link but I'm sure Ringling Bros. web site talks about it. Try Google or Yahoo.
