PETA’s Most Wanted

Written by PETA | October 2, 2007

I just saw this great story from Time Out New York about which Big Apple residents are currently in our crosshairs. Some, like Ringling, won’t be much of a surprise, but some of the others, well . . . I don’t want to ruin the surprise, so you’ll have to check out the article for yourself. Here’s the link again.

    Uh rojo rebuttals are connected with debates. Animal rights is absolutely not a debatable issue. Therefore I do not debate therefore I do not rebut. I clearly point out how wrong ignoramuses are about animal rights. So since you clearly have a reading comprehension disorder the laugh as always is on you. BTW how is SB doing? Please tell SB we all greatly appreicated hisher exceptionally intelligent knowledge.

  • rojo says:

    ariel i guess thats why you’ve been so successful with your rebuttals. LOL.

  • rojo says:

    glad to be of some service.

    Hi Michele! Count me among the ones who laugh when I read their posts and I REALLY mean laugh! Their comments are too funny to be real! Hi Ana! Yes I know very very well that animal sufferings are our priority and I know that Harris’ clearly expressed having disdain about the cat torturersetc. I had already easily recognized thatso it wasn’t a matter of me having to try to convince Harris’ about the atrocities that are done to animals. I was just supporting Harris’ fantastic suggestion for an animal abuser registry. In doing so the crime thing was not really meant to be my focus or to minimize animal suffering. It was only meant to elaborate about the MINDSET of the totally unconscientable “crazies” out there who torture animals as to how far they go and they should not be tolerated even with conducting one occasion of animal abuse because one time will most likely lead to more. And I think those mad “scientists” that we read about on here should be the first ones to be entered on the animal abuse registry and committed to a psych ward. They’re insane!

  • Ana says:

    Ariel Hi! What I like about what Harris said was that the cruelty that the cats endured and how they were murdered is in and of itself horrible and should not be tolerated. He wants these brutes on a public registry only because of the atrocities committed on these cats. Too many times ar literatureactivists focus only on the posibility that it may lead to crimes against humans. We should be intolerant and horrified that anyone could commit such unspeakable acts of violence against innocent defenseless cats. Animal cruelty in and of itself warrants enough of an outcry. It belittles the agony that animals endure at the hands of man to say it deserves attention only because it may lead to violence against humans. The animals’ pain is lost in this argument because the focus becomes the needs and care only of humans. It should not be this way and Harris makes a distinct comment of how he feels about the cruelty the animals endured and how they were so savagely killed. Stay well Peace!! Harris Thank you for your wise and compassionate comments!!! I agree!

  • Michele says:

    Hey animal rights folks I just came up with a brilliant drugfree way to cure insomnia! Read any posts by Mars rojo and the Faux Doctor read all 3 if you are REALLY having trouble falling asleep! actually depending how you perceive things it may end up just making you laugh thus having the opposite effect… LOL Harris welcome to the PETA files hope you find it enlightening. There are a number of wonderful people who post here who can provide you with information in a succinct intelligent manner. Hope to see you more often!

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    Tommy said “I know you won’t post this so I hope to enrage just one of you and I’ll have done my job.” Well at least you’re an honest flamebaiter. I gave up being enraged a long time ago. Now I get more of a chuckle out of posts like yours.

  • Mars says:

    “how do YOU know the mindset of animals first of all ” The same way you claim to know. “I believe to keep the population down of humans we should hunt them and eat them.” It’s called WAR and CANNABALISM and both occur on a daily basis. “I live a very happy healthy lifestyle without contributing to the killing of animals ” How do you figure that you don’t contribute to the killing of animals? You live in a cavedon’t eatwear no clothes and don’t work? If you do any of those then you contributed to the deaths of animals.

  • Ariel says:

    Harris I am absolutely so overwhelmed by your experiences and compassionate comments that I am practically at a loss for words. and that is definitely not like me So please excuse me if I fumble my way through this. First of all WELCOME to this blog site! What you may think of as “purely an emotional response” is compassion that is supported by reality and enhanced by offering an exceptionally wise suggestion. I certainly can’t claim to know how but somehow especially if you had no concept of animal rights’ activism previously you immediately made the connection of the humananimal relationship and its affects upon society for the better or worse. As ar’s activists a lot of us have been knocking ourselves out just to get that one point across simply put the atrocities that people do to innocent animals they are capbable of doing to humans. And that has been proven highly documented by the FBI for years that when they were children murderers initially started with torturing and killing small animals. It’s only one step away for sicko adult animal abuserskillers now like with they did with the cats for them to turn their abusive andor killing inclinations upon humans children. Plus it is highly documented that where animal abuse is occuring it is the redflag warning that a child or children are being abused in that same residence. I would really really really hate to think that your suggestion for a system that registers animal abusers would not come to fruition. So since you said that you are a senior at I.U. plus having a military background would it be possible for you to initate your suggestion? of course with supportive collaboration perhaps by presenting it to PeTA? Hope to hear from you again.

    aloka… HOW ARROGANT OF YOU TO USE GOD TO GIVE CREDENCE TO YOUR ANGRY SELFRIGHTEOUS BLATHER!

  • larissa ybarra says:

    who ever says animals don’t have the same mindset is surely mistaken. animals may not be superior but they have emotions and are smart. when humans hurt they react by screaming and try to get away from the thing that is hurting them. now let me ask you something…what do animals do when something hurts them?

  • tommy says:

    You people are nit wits ! Animals are for FOOD. Humans are omnivors just like bears. You cannot survive on plants alone in a healthy condition period. THIS IS A FACT unlike the total garbage you are posting on this website. PLUS Animals taste GOOD !! I know you won’t post this so I hope to enrage just one of you and I’ll have done my job. The Facts are that HUNTERS do more to help Animals than you will ever do ! Wildlife management by HUNTERS like ME makes it possible for extremists like you to enjoy Animals in the wild in all thier beautiful forms. The HUNTERS of this country have a greater RESPECT for the wildlife of this Country than you have for yourselves. Animal abuse is one thing and every hunter I know would punish severly anyone found abusing an Animal however Animal management keeps the balance between predator and prey. NO different than managing a garden of plants. If you were truley concerned about Animal welfare you would promote Hunting and the management of wildlife. Plus you would enjoy the benifit of a healthy deit of game Animals which are the natural food your body requires. I’m willing to bet that none of you peta people have ever been into the wilderness to even see the Animals you pretend to defend in their natural setting. ANYONE that blieves ANYTHING from the CORRUPT MORONS of the U.N. needs to be beat with a cane pole. The Earth is just fine you cannot stop the changes that occur you can only adapt to them so SHUT UP and enjoy the ride ! ETHICAL TREATMENT means FAIR CHASE and CLEAN KILL with no WASTE of GAME.

  • V. Soto says:

    I wholeheartedly agree with PETA on this list of abusers. More power to The Coalition to Ban HorseDrawn Carriages in New York! How in this day and age horse drawn carriages are still considered acceptable is beyond me. They pose such a danger to the horses and the public on today’s city streets. Are Mayor Bloomberg and the New York City Council awaiting yet another awful accident before they finally wake up? Denver’s City Council is also blind to the fact that horsedrawn carriages are a thing of the past. Instead of banning them altogether their solution was to propose cruel and ineffective “tests” that will subject horses to loud unexpected sounds in a misguided attempt to determine whether a horse “spooks easily”. What a bunch of geniuses! What Denver fails to realize is that horses are not robots or machines and NO amount of “testing” can fully predict the reactions of living breathing horses when confronted with unexpected situations out in traffic. Conducting these “tests” will not guarantee that a particular horse will react the same way to other startling eventsor even to the same sound at a different time and under different circumstances. Such testing will not make Denver’s streets any safer and will only succeed in traumatizing the horses. I feel grateful that this article is helping to expose some of the worst abusers out there.

  • dman says:

    hey dont get mad at me but what is so bad about hunting animals dose’nt that cut down on deer getting killed by cars and overpopulation?

  • PETA rocks says:

    Listen BETHY what are you two? bethy. ha. You can go to hell you need to educate yourself you’re a fuckin’ idiot. I strongly suggest you see a psychiatrist QUICKLY. Supporting the torture and abuse of animals is NOT normal behavior it really isn’t. That goes for any of you who do not support PETA. In all sincerity you need some professional help. Who raised you anyway?

  • Harris says:

    I am currently a Marine and a senior at Indiana University. This is my first time to peta.org and I just read the piece on the individuals that tortured the cats obtained at Craigslist.com. Although I have seen many disturbing things in war this really got to me. I would love to know the names and addresses of these disgusting individuals. Although this may seem like a purely emotional response sickos like that need the same type of public registry that sex offenders do. This way animals can be protected in the same manner in which we try to protect children. If this system was in place a simple query of the customers name would have saved these cats.

  • halo snipe says:

    Why do you liberal SOABs want to ban all tradition and links to the good ol days? If we can develop a system for us to have all of our animal related traditions without the abuse then you all got nothing to work Or live for!

  • aloka says:

    PEOPLE C’MON YOU GUYS ARE FIGHTING OVER THE MOST AND NEARLY CONTROVERSIAL THINGS BECAUSE THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG ANSWER AND I’M JUST SAYING IT FROM ALL POINTS OF VIEW LIKE A MATURE AND THE MODEST PERSON WOULD…YES!ANIMAL ABUSE IS BAD BUT THINK AGAIN NOT EVERYONE IS RAISED WITH THAT KIND OF ATTITUDE ESPECIALLY SINCE THEY WERE EATING “nuggets” FROM macdonals SINCE THEY WERE 2…BADABABABAAA I’M LOVING IT!RECALL THAT POPULAR SLOGAN ON TV…C’MON WE SEE IT EVERYWHERE ON TV DOWN THE ROAD ON MEDIA NEIGHBOUR’S YARD..PEOPLE ARE USED TO EATING MEAT SINCE THEY WERE LITTLE AND THEIR MOMS ATE IT AND THEIR MOM’S MOM ATE IT AND SO ON…IT HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT FOR GENERATIONS. I KNOW IT’S TERRIBLE. BUT DO YOU ACTUALLY THINK THEY ARE GOING TO STOP EATING MEAT JUST FOR THE SAKE OF PROTECTING ANIMALS AND PRESERVING THEM. I MYSELF TRIED TO CONVINCE PEOPLE AROUND ME TO STOP EATING MEAT BEACAUSE IT IS BAD FOR YOU. BUT NO CONVINCING PEOPLE ABOUT THE “unknows” IS NOT THAT EASY. PEOPLE ARE NOT SO GULLIBLE NOWADAYS. THEY’RE VERY COCKY AND LIBERAL. YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT IT FROM all POINTS OF VIEW. IF YOU BELIEVE IN SOMETHING THAT U TRULY SUPPORT THE LEAST YOU COULD DO IS CARRY ON WITH IT. BECAUSE NO ONE KNOWSUNDERSTANDS WHAT YOU TRULY MEAN BUT YOURSELF! SO DON’T BLAME OR HATE OTHERS BECAUSE THEY DON’T BELIEVE IN THE THINGS YOU DO. THEN YOU’LL JUST BE ONE OF THOSE HYPOCRITES AND VICTIMS OF THE ABUSE! THINK ABOUT IT……GOD MADE US ALL TO LIVE AND DIE AND MOSTLY BECOME THE BEST PERSONBEING YOU COULD BE BECAUSE HE CARES FOR EVERY KIND. THE LEAST YOU COULD DO FOR HIM IS BELIEVE IN HIS CREATIONS AND ACCEPT EVERYONE FOR THE WAY THEY ARE BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT HURTING ANYONE BY SAYING U HATE THEM. YOU’RE HURTING GOD!

    If you hate PETA why are you here…? Are you stupid.

  • Ana says:

    The Southern slaveowners screamed in anger and disgust that their slaves were their property and that they were not giving them up. They claimed that their businesses would be doomed and that freeing the slaves would doom their economy. “What will these people do”? This is the same dumb question repeated ad nauseum when something that is cruel and is associated with money is exposed and should be abolished. P. S. The South is doomed “what will these people do”?? They must have their slaves their property their profits!!!!

  • Morgaine says:

    I believe to keep the population down of humans we should hunt them and eat them. Let’s mass produce their meat since there are so many of them. Doesn’t that sound like a good idea? People c’mon this arguement of cutting the animal population down isn’t really an arguement. There are so many of us now if we keep killing animals then there will be just us and then what do you survive on now when it comes to meat. I’m just gonna keep sticking to the nuts and berries. I can promise that all vegans and vegetarians will be here longer than meat eaters.

  • Nadine says:

    How can people think of killing any living creature as a sport? In my eyes I see sport as a competition between two people who show determination and skill not with a knife or gun but with sheer hard work and sweat it seems like people who hunt animals obviously have a very limited imagination as it can’t be too hard pointing a gun at something that can’t protect itself can it? I live a very happy healthy lifestyle without contributing to the killing of animals Go all you veggie’s out there!

  • rojo says:

    michele since when has 18GW attributable to livestock been mostly. The same UN report states that 1.3 billion people rely on livestock for their living. Some regions do not support arable farming due to climate mountains or soil quality. What will these people do? The report also states that livestock are fed “77million tonnes of human edible protein returning 58 million tons of human edible protein” a net loss yes but not as dramatic as a “14 pounds of grain to 1 pound of beef” portrays. Incidently cattle diets are rarely above 80 grain they need some roughage. I’m not sure if Dr Spock is known well in Australia but I did read at some stage he advocated veg. only after he converted at age 80 something. Could you shed some light on this. Thanks.

  • Todd Lee Wandel says:

    Firstly animals including we humans were’nt “put on this earth”. We’ve evolved precariously over the course of millions of years to our present day forms. The assumption that an animal’s sole existence is for mankind’s benefit is ignorant and audacious. In my opinion the arguments over how we’ve evolved i.e. herbivoresomnivorescarnivores are irrelevant as are the benefits or not of a vegetarian lifestyle. The true question is how we are to use our greatest strengths the ability to love to reason to imagine and to make conscious decisions regarding the wellbeing and welfare of others regardless of their race OR species. Simply put to do the right thing.

  • Stephanie says:

    Bethany or whoever you are that said you hate peta because of rapists and murderers or what ever. What makes you think that humans are more important than animals. We were all put here for a reason and I seriously doubt animals were put here to be tortured for human tastebuds and pleasure. IT is disgusting that people get away with what’s going on and it’s disgusting that people like you let it happen!

  • Lisa says:

    Dear John Doe I don’t blame you for not using your real name after comments like that how do YOU know the mindset of animals first of all and second I think you meant species …. not race. And if animals were put on this earth to eat why are humans getting diseases from heart attacks to diabetes to cancer and more from eating meat and dairy this is in the mainstream media…not to mention factory farms are infecting our produce with ecoli. Why do we have to cook meat and put all kinds of spices and sauce on it to make it taste good? If it were natural to eat meat we would go kill the cow or pig ourself and eat it right there like an obligate carnivore. I think you need to do some reading. PETA’s website has a wealth of information you could start with. PCRM is also a good website for info. Good luck.

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    Pat If you put down your rifle and went into the forest what animals would you be capable of catching killing and eating being at the “top” of the food chain and all? Also “because of wide spread disease” I assume you only kill sick and aged animals. If you in fact kill animals that are in their period of prime reproductivity there’ll be no more animals for me to love.

  • Pat says:

    “In response to John Doe” Yes there must be a balance which is why I am an avid hunter FOR MEAT! I am very much so against torturing animal however there must be hunting for animal population control. Much like humans have Birth control animals have the responsible hunters to control the population. Personally I do not agree with most of what PETA does I see it as too extreme. If it were not for us hunters there would be no animals for you all to love because of wide spread disease and no source of food for the overpopulated masses of animals. Point blank most of us are not on top of the food chain to eat only carrots.

  • Michele says:

    John Doe please read up on the issue of raising animals for food. It takes approximately 14 pounds of grain to make 1 pound of beef. Never mind how much water one needs for cattle. The dietary needs of the cattle on this earth for one year could feed over 8 billion people hmmmm isn’t that just about the world’s human population? And I am only talking about cattle! That does not include the food and water resources to raise chickens pigs etc. Although there are billions of factoryfarmed animals on this earth it is only because humans have bred so many. If people stopped eating all meat which would be a gradual thing there would be fewer and fewer animals being bred therefore the world would not be overrun with “game”. Nonhuman animals were on this earth millions and millions of years before humans ever came into existence so that is a load of crap about animals being on this earth for humans! And you want to talk about balance? Since humans have fed up this earth so badly with global warming which by the way a United Nations study has just shown to be caused mostly by MEAT eating it is the humans who have messed with this balance in the first place. Read up on the facts about the enormous amounts of pollution that come from hog farm operations how our rivers are a mess because of it and how people who live near these disgusting operations are getting ill! I would love to provide more info to you John Doe but it would be a waste if what I have already provided to you will be ignored. If you really want to open yourself up to learning the truth you can certainly find plenty of information about these issues on PETA’s websites or you can check out http://www.pcrm.org for the health aspects. The late Dr. Spock advocated for a veg diet for children and many countries’ governments are touting the benefits of vegetarianismveganism for all humans. The 10 most wanted article was really interesting I thought it had a very animalfriendly tone and hopefully it will get a wide audience.

    sorry I put the wrong name I meant Carla

  • Lindsay says:

    Marisela just so you know they do not mean Kosher as in the dill pickle company they mean kosher as in the methodology of harvesting an animal in a fashion so that those practicing certain religions Jewish I believe can consume it. You might trying using Google to find out more.

  • john doe says:

    to say that being kind to animals is needed is not true. I agree that we need to focus upon more pertanent issues such as social security and other domestic problems then a guy being mean to a cat or whatever. I live in a small hick town and I know my animals. Animals don’t have the same mindset as a human to maybe that is how we became a superior race.

  • john doe says:

    I can not understand how any one person could not understand the balance of life. Animals have to be killed some for food and some for sport. If not us humans would not have enough produce to eat because there would be game eating all of our crops. There has to be a balance animals were put on this earth to eat!

  • V. Soto says:

    Betsy writes I personally HATE PETA. But I know I need a better argument than just the fact that I hate them. The US goverment needs to pay more attention to the rapest and murders than people that are hurting animals. Crack down on people for commiting crimes against a human and then you MIGHT have an argument. I’d like to pass along the following comment that was made by Robert K. Ressler from the FBI yes Betsy the FBI is “part of the U.S. goverment “Murderers … very often start out by killing and torturing animals as kids” according to Robert K. Ressler who developed profiles of serial killers for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. So this tells me that the more kids we are able to reach with the message of compassion toward animals the lesser chance we have of them turning out to be those rapists and murderers you speak of.

    My Junior year of high school I went on a school trip to NYC. We walked through a small portion of Central Park for a little bit then came upon the horse carriages. It was the most disgusting thing I have ever seem. They reeked of filth you could see the misery in their faces some had mattedslightly discolored spots that I bet if I had inspected closer would have been infections several had diarrhea and only a couple had any sort of hoof protection. They didn’t even have the will to swat at the hoard of flies and gnats attacking them. I gawked equally at my classmates. We were all from Tennessee at least half of them group up on or around farms and should know damn well what a healthy and happy horse smells and looks like. Yet the girls were cooing over how cute they were. I don’t get how people can be so blind to obvious suffering much less the smell of disease. It’s one thing when it’s tucked away in a factory but to be looking RIGHT AT IT and call it “cute”? What the hell?

  • Carla says:

    The Musicon Venison farm Erks me the most! Deer don’t belong on farms their wild animals that fear us humans. Who do Kosher think they are making these beautiful creatures suffer for a prolonged period of time. It’s just sick! I’ve been boycotting all Kosher products including their pickles which Safeway carries ever since seeing the expose on the abuse that goes into killing their cows for human consumption! Good for you PETA I love reading the last two lines. Even if it takes one restaurant at a time! Thankyou!!

  • Marisela says:

    I agree that all of these are wanted. Good Job I live in New York and I will try hard for the horsecarriages to be banned. I will do anything that is possible for the animals.
