PETA Mad At College Basketball

Thursday, March 01, 2007

Well not mad at all of College Basketball....just mad at Kansas State University. As you know PETA seems to spend their energy taking on very small useless cases. I'm not one for judging a person on their beliefs, but this seems a little ridiculous. (Lion In Oil points us in the right direction)

Kansas State Fans have been known to release live Chickens onto the court during player introductions for quite sometime (video below). And as you can imagine PETA has taken another small incident and blown it out of proportion......

Chickens are "very intelligent and inquisitive animals" that appeared to have been subjected to "deafening noise, bright lights, terror, abusive handling and likely death for the sake of amusement."

Said PETA director Debbie Leahy: "Any student who throws live birds on a basketball court should be thrown out of school."
Not that this is a non-story......okay, is. I've never understood PETA and I guess I never will. But good luck with your crusade.

(Side Note/Joke: The running joke with my friends has always been that PETA stood for Poorly.Educated.Teen.Activists.)

"Any student who throws live birds on a basketball court should be thrown out of school."

And the chicken should take his/her place. Then we'll se just how 'intelligent and inquisitive' they really are...

In my opinion, PETA is a terrorist organization.

PETA is an easy target because they take on both major cruelty (fur, including the killing of cats and dogs in China for fur sold in the U.S.) and what a lot of people (me included) consider minor cruelty. The problem is that most news stories that mention PETA only look at how they respond to minor cruelties without asking the larger related questions.
