In 2004 PETA awarded Animal Scientist Dr. Temple Grandin, a Visionary award for their annual "proggy awards". They cite that "Dr. Grandin's improvements to animal-handling systems found in slaughterhouses have decreased the amount of fear and pain that animals experience in their final hours, and she is widely considered the world's leading expert on the welfare of cattle and pigs." Now, the truth is Grandin, engineers the killing technology on factory farms, she was the chief designer of Burger King’s devices of murder.
Burger King Ads
Speaking of Burger King, PETA has allowed Burger King ads on their website. It's commonly thought that this is in response to Grandin’s award.
In no less than two instances PETA has used violent public death to capitalize their agenda. First was comparing the Women murdered by Robert Pickton to Pigs a few years back. And recently they attempted to put up ads where the murdered abortion doctor George Tiller practiced.
I assume most people are aware, but PETA’s rescues animals often but feels that they cannot be rehabilitated so instead puts them down. Publicly available archived evidence shows the number of deaths since 1998 at over 21,000. In 2008 of the 95 animals that were put into the company’s care, only seven were adopted.
