PETA Proposes Ad for Memphis Garbage Trucks

Last week, Memphis was named the fourth dirtiest city in the country by Travel+Leisure Magazine, but staffers at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) think they have the solution.
The animal rights organization will offer to pay the city's sanitation department for advertising space on garbage trucks. The ads would feature a lady wearing a lettuce leaf bikini with the message, "Meat Trashes the Planet. Go Vegan. Free Starter Recipes: PETA.org."
They may have a point. Factory farming is one of the largest contributors of greenhouse gases. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions.
"Our proposal is a win-win solution. Memphis will be better able to keep clean, and people will be encouraged to adopt a healthy and humane vegan diet that won't dirty the environment," said PETA executive vice president Tracy Reiman. "The meat and dairy industries are among the leading causes of environmental devastation, so the easiest way for Memphis residents to go 'green' is to go vegan."

Animal lovers worldwide now have access to more than a decade's worth of evidence showing that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) kills thousands of defenseless pets at its Virginia headquarters. Since 1998, PETA has opted to "put down" 25,840 adoptable dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens instead of finding them "forever homes."
PETA's "Animal Record" report for 2010, which the animal rights group itself filed with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, shows that PETA employees killed 94 percent of the dogs and cats in their care last year. During all of 2010, PETA found adoptive homes for just 44 pets.
Just 44 dogs and catsout of the 2,345 PETA took in. Those numbers are abysmal, and they and offer little hope for homeless animals to escape perishing on PETA's version of "death row."
The Virginia Beach SPCA, just down the road from PETA's Norfolk headquarters, manages to adopt out the vast majority of the animals in its care. And it does it on a shoestring budget.
Why would PETA, an "animal rights" group, secretly kill animals at its headquarters? From a cost-saving standpoint, PETA's hypocrisy isn't difficult to understand: Killing adoptable cats and dogsand storing the bodies in a walk-in freezer until they can be crematedrequires far less money and effort than caring for the pets until they are adopted.
PETA has a $33 million annual budget. But instead of investing in the lives of the thousands of flesh-and-blood creatures in its care, the group spends millions on media campaigns telling Americans that eating meat, drinking milk, fishing, hunting, wearing leather shoes, and benefiting from medical research performed on lab rats are all "unethical."
The bottom line is that PETA's leaders care more about cutting into their advertising budget than finding homes for the six pets, on average, that they kill every single day.
Years of public outrage has not been enough to convince PETA to eliminate its pet eradication program. Now the death toll of animals in PETA's care has reached 25,840, including 2,200 pets in 2010 alone.
PETA has ceased being an animal charity. It's behaving more like a slaughterhouse.
Leftists want to eliminate all humans - PETA wants to get rid of all animals.
If people were responsible pet owners, PETA would not have animals to kill. You need to control the puppy mills and people letting their animals run loose.
I don’t see how having all our meat delivered in Chevy Vega’s is going to save the planet. Wouldn’t it be better to just use the same trucks that they are using now?
Been hearing that Mark Levin has stepped up to the plate, challenging PETA.
This report has been discredited numerous times and they still chant it along with global warming.
Good luck in convincing Memphis people to not eat meat. Great bar-b-que on Union Ave near the river.
Under the sign, it should say - PAID FOR BY THE BLOOD OF ANIMALS SEEKING SHELTER
People For The Ethical Treatment Of Plants see PETA as vegan murderers. Oh, the biology!
Gotta get up pretty early in the evening to hear his show. I did get this info after listening last night.
He is from 6-9PM, WABCAM, which includes streaming. Even I have noticed that the local no-kill shelter that I volunteered at, have not seen any new PETA related recent publications as of late. Word must be getting out.
I sense because Mark had adopted the three dogs, all of whom have since have passed, in gratitude, will speak out more on this PETA nonsense.
