2008: A Great Year for Animals!

Published by PETA.

“So, PETA,” you might be asking as the end of the year quickly approaches, “what exactly did y’all do this year? Anything interesting?”

We’re glad you asked, as it just so happens that we’ve put together this video, which just so happens to highlight some of the sweet PETA goings-on from 2008. Watch it and tell us what you think:

“But oh, dear PETA Files,” you might be saying, “I wish I could read more about all the cool stuff I saw in that video.” Well, friends, you have come to the right place!

We at the PETA Files are more than happy to tell you all about how we took to the streets as M&Ms, Trollsens, and naked ladies in the shower. We love telling you about PETA celeb friends, from rather-go-naked Eva, Amanda, and Jenna, to vegetarians Shanna, Mac, and John. Oh, and of course we know everything about doggie- and kitty-loving Fred, Carrie Ann, and Simon as well as horse-defending Kristen, Pink, and Alec. Ya know, not to name-drop or anything.

And don’t worry—we can also tell you all about victories such as the new animal welfare policies for KFC suppliers in Canada, the spay-and-neuter ordinance in Los Angeles, Zappos.com’s promise to go fur-free, the E.U.’s ban on seal fur, and the new regulations for horseracing—not to mention our investigations at a Hormel supplier and Aviagen.

Of course, if you’d rather see more pictures, you can also check out our awesome end-of-year slideshow.

This has been quite the year, wouldn’t you say? What was your favorite PETA moment from 2008?

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
