Vancouver – Below, please find a statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk in response to reports that a hunter shot a dog in British Columbia after supposedly mistaking her for a wolf:
Trigger-happy, bloodlust-filled hunters with manhood issues can’t see the forest for the trees and can’t tell a domestic dog from a wolf. PETA reminds everyone that a wolf is just another type of dog, and like all animals killed for hunters’ kicks, the victim did no harm to this hunter before he picked up his gun.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way.” Please let me know if you have any questions or if there’s any further information that I can provide.
