We should point out that "Animal Welfare" (Humane Society and ASPCA) are technically quite different and not pushy vegan crusaders.

PETA makes themselves a joke, and I think this criticism, while comedic in tone, is fully deserved- http://www.theonion.com/content/vide...rce=videoembed
Actually, in SLC, the Humane Society is in bed with the activists. That's why we no longer donate money to them. Stopped about 15 years ago when we found out.
Diver Dan says "PETA does not educate people on reality based information; they have their own thoughts and educate people to those thoughts proven or unproven. When you dig into their research and information most times it can be proven to be flawed."
I agree with him 110% on that. peta is now targeting the school kids. They want to try to get them at a impressionable age.

Cliff, you are right about local Humane Societies, they are not usually associated with the radical animal rights people; however the Humane Society of the United States is one of the largest radical animal rights groups we have in this country. Most local Humane Societies will make that very clear to you.

The HSUS is a fund raising outfit that has NO animal shelters that it runs anywhere in this country; the money raised goes for causes with no relation to what the donors think the money is being used for. Gramma thinks the nice people are helping stray cats and dogs; when in reality they are using the money to end any number of activities that they feel is wrong.

Alright, thanks for the clarification.

Not a very good marine biologist is she? She probably got an F in biology.

I'd like to know the names of these 'biologists'. PETA would rather kill a million people and save a guinea pig from medical research, evolution chose us at the dominant species of this planet. This doesn't mean we should ravage the earth of its resources, however we do have the right to fish and hunt as we wish.

Most organizations do a good job of pointing out problems with cruelty to animals etc. I always figure if you are going to eat an animal, you should not torture it. Most of do not some of us seem to enjoy it. This of course adds fuel to the fire.
The thing about PETA is they have no faith in their own science and logic. This is shown by the untruths they publish. Not confident that the truth shall be an effective weapon, they resort to fiction, Google Sea Kittens to see another example.
Letters to any government body that PETA is writing to is an important part of what we need to do to combat them. Educating our children is a very important part of the battle. Real knowledge trumps made-up stories every time. If we have the time to post here, we have the time to write a brief letter to our Government Representatives.

Wow! Just think if those fishermen had the right under British law to protect themselves from violent physical attack. We need to keep our 2nd Amendment Rights.

You are right about writing our government officials, everyone needs to write their representatives in the House and the Senate when they see something they disagree with.

When I posted this; it was done after I had contacted my two Senators and my Congressman. I also wrote the man from the NPS and expressed my views on the matter.

Outdoor sports enthusiasts need to get vocal on our rights to hunt and fish in this country. Support all outdoor sports whether you participate in them or not, and support each other.

From today's fishwrap. Sticking their noses in where is doesn't belong and of coarse not getting any facts straight.

If we are not very careful we will loose those too. If you think that they are not headed that way as we speak, you would be mistaken. The most amazing part of this jackassery we call gun control is, every time it is done in every single place, gun crimes go up. When you can't defend yourself, the criminals who ignore gun laws are let loose on us like wolves in a herd of sheep.
