A Duluth East graduate began working for PETA two months ago, and this week joined a protest in one of the world’s most violent sporting events involving animals.

PETA & vegetarians. Don’t these people know that there isn’t farm land to feed all the people? Travel halfway around the world to protest? With the types of things going on in our country, these protests loose credibility. Fringe politics.

PETA is concerned about “The Running of the Bulls?”
Give me a break and care about a real cause like cancer, MS, or space exploration.

PETA kills thousands of animals per year. In 2009 they found homes for only one in 300 animals taken in at it’s Norfolk, VA office. If our local animal shelters had that rate people would break out the torches and pitchforks.

Either PeTA or the girls’ parents have a lot of money to waste, flying them halfway around the planet to waste their time doing this. Think of the carbon footprint they just put on this planet by flying there and back. Hmmm…was it really a good cause?

I applaud anyone standing up for what they believe in as long as legal, ethical and moral. But I agree with Josiah, there are more important “people” issues in this world right now (sick, illiteracy, poor, food banks, etc) than protesting the running of the bulls. I am just wondering how many PETA members would drive across town to protest the killing of a life in an abortion, or try to right a person that was wronged by discrimination -

I never understood PETA. Throwing red paint on someone doesn’t tell me you’re trying to make a statement about the treatment of animals, it tells me you are asking to be arrested for vandelism and possibly assult. If you want to educate the public, do it with PROOF, don’t do it with paint. I also agree that there are much more important issues right here on their home turf that need attention first before they should be concerned with what the other side of the world is doing. And yes, flying over there and the carbon footprint, hypocritical much? You care about bulls on the other side of the world, but hey screw the Ozone and the planet itself, right? I’ve always wondered if PETA members swat mosquitos…
