    I'm a pest controller (when I'm not glued to the computer :p) and we're not allowed to use rodent spring/snap traps or sticky boards anymore because they're cruel. Sticky boards I understand, becuase they don't kill instantly and can pull limbs off, but snap traps are very instant.

    Yet we're allowed to feed them chemicals that make them bleed internally :rolleyes:

    Now this is no BS, but our industry association is fighting to stop them banning the use of sticky traps for cockroaches. Yep. That's right. They're too inhumane for the cockroaches.

    I'm curious as to just how big they make the sticky traps.... How many activists can you fit on one?

    I have no problem with eating animals - but I do agree that they should be slaughtered in the least painful way possible. Most people would be outraged if they saw someone torturing a cat or dog in the street, but they don't seem to care when the same pain is inflicted on other creatures by free enterprise in the slaughterhouse. That seems an absurd position to me, and reading through the PETA literature on Controlled-Atmosphere Killing, I can't understand why this isn't widely used anyway. It seems to make a heap more business sense than this electronic mobilisation method currently in use, never mind the welfare benefits to the animal.

    I doubt your industry (or PETA) would like the fact that I light Horseflies on fire, when they land on my horses.....I am so sick of those stinkn' horse flies....

    I too do not have a problem with hunting and eating animals. Hell I do hunting myself (well I have not in years though...). I love eating meat, especially wild game.

    What I do have a problem with, is the cruel and painful killing of animals. I hate people that do such things, whether it be to slaughter them or just for the joy. These kind of people in my opinion should should have done to them what they do to the animals.

    Now having said this, I hate PETA. They are in my opinion an Eco-Terrorist group, and I will never support them.

    That'll be because there is no line of reason.

    What I find hard to comprehend is the line that McDonalds are "the biggest seller of chicken meat in the US"

    It's quite possible considering their Chicken McNuggets are a huge seller for them.
    Parents getting them for their kids because the make a good finger food.
    They also have McChicken sandwiches.
    Possibly some others but I can't remeber the whole menu at the moment.

    I'm a major animal lover, and a vegetarian. BUT I don't condone PETA's actions. though some of the stuff I saw from them is what made me become a vegetarian in the first place. I support the ASPCA in any way possible. but I am pissed at mcDonald's. because in the first few months of my veganism, I've been eating their fries. only to find out that their fries have natural beef flavoring in them. I know because I have friends who used to work for McDonald's and i saw the box they came in, with the ingredients, myself.

    If PETA had thier way, all animals (this includes insects, rodents, cats, dogs and anything not human) would have free run like the Brahmas do in India.

    Every last one of those people are idiots.

    By the way, whenever I see one of those tastey looking Brahmas, I'm thinkin' BBQ :lol:

    Same here. I love eating meat, and I will probably never stop eating meat (unless the doctor tells me I have to stop or I will die. :oops:). However, animals that are humanely slaughtered for eating makes a lotta sense. It's at least the descent thing we can do before we decide to chow down on them.

    That being said, the PETA are just a bunch of animal nutjobs, like the people who were crying hysterically when babaro died. Even though it's tragic, I just don't feel that the life of an animal has more merit than the life of a human being. In my view, the world would be a lot better off without the PETA. Anyway, for a little more criticism of the PETA, I present this. It's a little much with the swears, but their arguement is powerful.

    PETA IMHO does more damage then they cure. They are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites.
