PETA: People Euthanising Thousands of Animals

There’s a fascinating discussion on MetaFilter about PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and a critical site, PETA kills animals. The latter attempts to expose the fact that PETA kills thousands of stray animals each year, but the Mefites quickly uncovered the PETA critics’ rather shady origins.

It’s a great example of why I love the net: an interesting story pops up, then the internet community makes it more interesting. And then, of course, it becomes a big fight.
