PETA’s Top 10 Blog Posts of 2010

Written by PETA | December 17, 2010

Picking the top 10 PETA Files blog posts of the past year was harder than figuring out the plot of Inception, but we’ve narrowed it down to these posts, which cover everything from Lady Gaga’s meat dress to our “Pope Condom” campaign:

  1. PETA’s investigation of international animal dealer U.S. Global Exotics leads to the record-setting rescue of more than 26,000 animals.
  2. A PETA investigation at a Pennsylvania dairy farm reveals the filthy, miserable origins of Land O’Lakes butter.
  3. Worldwide outrage erupts after a girl is caught on video hurling puppies to their deaths
  4. Leaked photos from a company that supplies animal-restraint devices to laboratories show horrifically mutilated monkeys
  5. Lady Gaga’s meat dress induces a collective gag. 
  6. A laboratory investigated by PETA closes, and more than 200 animals are rescued. 
  7. An orca at SeaWorld dies at roughly half most orcas’ expected life span. 
  8. Thousands of chickens are spared from being ground up alive
  9. PETA’s use of the pope’s image on a spay/neuter leaflet touches off controversy.
  10. NASA calls off its ghastly primate radiation experiments after hearing from more than 100,000 PETA members.

Which blog post got you the most fired up this year?

    Amanda, PETA supports additional measures to safeguard horses from abandonment and neglect, including specifically making horse abandonment a crime with stiff penalties on a state-by-state level, as Oregon is currently considering; requiring people who can no longer care for their horses to find new homes for them or have them euthanized by injection; and putting into place funding and special enforcement to prevent unscrupulous individuals from smuggling horses out of the U.S. under false pretenses. Please help us urge legislators to pass the Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act (S. 311/H.R. 503). H.R. 503 would make it a crime to possess, ship, transport, purchase, sell, deliver, or receive horses or horse flesh for human consumption. Every national animal-protection organization is opposed to rodeos because of the events’ inherent cruelty. Even when animals aren’t injured—and they often are—they still suffer from fear and pain during rodeo events.

    What is wrong with you people? You live in the cities and have no comprehension at all about anything in the livestock community. Sine the ban has been placed against horse slaughter you’re actually hurting those animals more. Now we have yuppies like you “saving” horses by penning 15-20 horses in a acre pen. Now instead of them being put out of their misery they are suffering more because people are smashing hundreds of horses in a trailer for days and even weeks to take them to mexico where they don’t quickly and painlessly kill them they let them suffer and starve. Wake up I would rather be shot quick than deal die slowly and horribly. Instead of attacking rodeo people like myself, who in fact ensure the health and well-being of their animals with healthy feeding and regular vet checks try doing something about the spanish bullfighter crap (which i am strongly against) and the mexicans that think they can whip and spur and beat a horse into cooperation, which again is abuse and leave the people alone that actually take care of their animals. The bulls and horses that stock contractors supply for the rodeos are in fact in a much healthier environment than so many others. They get top quality feed the best vets in the country and only get ridden for 8 seconds or less maybe once a month. Flank straps that people so commonly believe go around the animals private parts actually go around their stomaches and have a thick cotton layer that protects them from any injury. The spurs have to be blunt and cannot cause any damage mithout serious reprecussions. Please check your facts and do something about the people that own horses and have no business doing so. People that feed their animals 4 falkes of alfalfa and 2 coffee cans full of molasses coated grain which results in serious intenstinal problems and then keep the horses locked in a stall all day and night without any excercise whatsoever. If you ate 20 burgers every day and were restricted to your bed without any option to move would you be healthy? Please save those animals and leave the ones that are already saved alone. Thanks

    #3 really made me mad. How come the girl’s parents never taught her that it is WRONG to hurt animals?

    I liked the story of the Catholic pope that owned the fur factory farm in Illinois.

    What?? How can Gail Shea, minister and promoter of killing baby seals, getting a pie in the face not make the top 10?! 🙂 That was my favorite!!

    Some of these things are just horrifying. It’s a good thing that PETA and other groups are around to stop these atrocities.
