Another embarrassment for PeTA
PeTA has received yet another embarrassment as two PeTA employees went on trial today for allegedly "dog-napping" a hunting dog belonging to an animal control officer. The dog was allegedly picked up by two PeTA employees and its tracking collar removed and thrown on the side of the road, perhaps indicating they had no intention of finding its owner. The two employees are each charged with grand larceny for the dog ( a felony ) and petty larceny for the collar ( a misdemeanor ). The dog was later found by police in the back of a PeTA-owned van driven by the employees. All I can say is that is one lucky dog that the cops showed up. Given PeTA's sordid history, the last place you want to be if you're a dog is in the back of a PeTA-owned van. We'll keep an eye on this one as the trial progresses.
