    Ditto.

    I work at a Veterinary College and PETA's trying to crack down on us and Iams for performing kidney transplants on dogs and cats.

    Peta: a perfect example of what happens when you take a good cause and just go balls to the wall crazy with it.

    I love this shit, my Cat won't eat anything -but- Iams. What am I supposed to do? Let her starve to death?

    I went to a Beastie Boys concert, and the UK version of Peta were there protesting this, and I took a leaflet, and read it, and was like "Wow, this is terrible, what -should- I feed my cat?"

    "The leaflet has alternatives."

    "They're all US addresses on here, what good is that to me?"

    "..."

    "Yeah, well thanks for your help in ruining my evening with your pictures, k thx bai"

    If it was any other organization I would consider this claim. Because it is PETA claiming this means that IAMS can get away with murder and people still wouldn't believe PETA.

    They need to get a different organization involved.

    Perhaps they are a target because IAMS is owned by Proctor & Gamble?

    I'm supposed to give a shit when much worse is happening to people in some parts of the world? Maybe the folks out in places like Sudan and Somalia need to start dressing up as cute animals to get western attention for thier plight.

    Considering dogs are omnivores and cats are strict carnivores, both whom need animal protien in their diet to survive wouldn't a vegan pet food its self be considered animal cruelty?

    Is it not possible to give both issues the same amount of attention? I had no idea that the humans are limited in how much they can give a shit. "Well Johnny, I'd love to give a shit about how you lost your job, but look I already gave my attention to Emily and how her car broke down"

    Everytime I hear PETA I think of that 'Douche and Turd' South Park episode...I jumped for joy and clapped like a retard when all the PETA members got gunned down by Puff Daddy.

    you know, i hate hearing stories like this...but at the same time, it also seems necessary...id rather they tested on strays or pound animals instead of me buying a bag, taking it home, and my dog dying....its horrible to hear about stuff like this, but PETA also seems to have such a bad name as well...i dont know though....i just feel bad for the animals. but when i had pets, i didnt buy iams anyway, i was a cheap food kinda guy....its all probably similiar and from similiar companies, but then my only other option is starving my pets...

    Peta makes a lot of this shit up. Anyone remember the numerous reports of Peta adopting animals from shelters only to put them down? I think people were jokingly calling it Peta's "Better dead than fed" initiative.

    Pen & Teller devoted an episode of Bullshit! to PETA, and in the last segment, they questioned why PETA needed a giant walk-in freezer in their headquarters, and it was suggested that the reason for the freezer was to store, at least temporarily, the bodies of the animals they euthanized themselves.
