Senator Named PETA’s Person of the Year
Senator Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia has been named PETA’s “Person of the Year.” Byrd has been recognized with the award for his passionate defense of animals throughout six decades of public service. The senior senator, who was a meat cutter in his youth, has evolved into a tireless advocate for improving legal protection for animals, including animals who are slaughtered for food. The following are a few of Byrd’s many efforts in behalf of animals:
“Sen. Byrd is never shy about making his strong belief in the importance of animal protection heard,” says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. “Much animal suffering has been alleviated thanks to Sen. Byrd, and this year we are proud to honor him for giving a voice to the voiceless.”Thank you for all of your hard work for animals, Senator!And to be clear, PETA does not support or oppose any candidate for public office or any political party.- Joel
