PETA employees charged with cruelty to animals

Well, now, this is ironic.

Two employees of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have been charged with animal cruelty after dumping dead dogs and cats in a shopping center garbage bin, police said.

Investigators staked out the bin after discovering that dead animals had been dumped there every Wednesday for the past four weeks, Ahoskie police said in a prepared statement Thursday.

. . . .

Police found 18 dead animals in the bin and 13 more in a van registered to PETA. The animals were from animal shelters in Northampton and Bertie counties, police said.

Well, while you'd think that would shock any deluded soul who still supports PETA, it's still just two PETA employees, right? Doing something outside of PETA's scope, right? But wait, what exactly were the PETA employees supposed to be doing?

The two were picking up animals to be brought back to PETA headquarters for
[wait for it...]
PETA president Ingrid Newkirk said Thursday.

(Emphasis most definitely added.)

That's right, ladies and gentlemen, "a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy" opiner herself, Ingrid Newkirk, advises that the employees weren't supposed to be dumping dead animals, they were supposed to be collecting live animals so that the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals could kill them.

Man, I hate these guys.
