PETA has launched a campaign against the “animal right extremists” who claim that humans are not meant to breed pets, a campaign which is aimed at stopping the practice of euthanizing animals.
The “Pets of the Week” feature focuses on “animal cruelty” on TV, and focuses on animals that “have suffered” or “experienced abuse,” such as lions, tigers, and elephants.
The campaign is aimed in part at stopping people from buying pets, but also on animal rights activists who oppose the idea of raising and caring for pets, and who often have their own pet animals.
“Our campaign is not a boycott.
We want people to see the truth about animals,” PETA Executive Director Kathy Osterhout said in a statement.
“This campaign is designed to make the point that people who oppose raising animals for their own use are not just wrong, but evil.”PETA has been criticized for the campaign.
Some activists say the campaign is an attack on the sanctity of life, while others argue that the organization should focus on the cruelty of the industry and animal rights activism.
The Campaign for Real Pets, which is co-founded by the Humane Society of the United States, has called the campaign “misleading.”
