PETA Employee Exposes PETA’s Mass Killing

As media outlets across the country highlight PETA’s killing, as millions of animal lovers become informed of their true agenda, as the Virginia Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services (VDACS) opens an inquiry into PETA’s killing, as elected officials call for an investigation of PETA, and as the Virginia Legislature pursues a bill to stop PETA’s killing, former PETA employees are finally speaking out.
In an article released today, one of those former employees writes:
“I know from first hand experience that the PETA leadership has no problem lying. I was told regularly to not enter animals into the log, or to euthanize off site in order to prevent animals from even entering the building. I was told regularly to greatly overestimate the weight of animals whose euthanasia we recorded in order to account for what would have otherwise been missing ‘blue juice’ (the chemical used to euthanize), because that allowed us to euthanize animals off the books. I was told regularly to say whatever I had to say in order to get people to surrender animals to me, lying was not only acceptable, it was encouraged… Contrary to what PETA maintains, the majority of animals it takes in are not beyond hope, in my experience many would be considered highly adoptable by a shelter, the ‘better off dead’ line is one that is dragged out in order to excuse what they do–and it’s a lie.”

According to the VDACS, PETA took in 1,605 cats in 2014 and killed 1,536 (a kill rate of 96%). They transferred another 43 to shelters. If they were killed or displaced others who were killed, that would put the cat kill rate as high as 98%. They found homes for only 16, an adoption rate of 1%. PETA also took in 1,021 dogs of which they killed 788 (a kill rate of 77%). Another 209 were transferred to other shelters. Like the cats, if they were killed or displaced others who were killed, the dog death rate would also be as high as 98%. Only 23 were adopted. If what the former PETA staff member says is true, even these horrific numbers are too low.

Although I do not know the person who wrote the article and have never spoken to her, I’ve spoken to several other PETA staff members over the last several months and the picture they draw of the inner workings of PETA are identical and equally chilling. One of them gave me the photograph posted above, reportedly taken at PETA of needles filled with sodium pentobarbital (the drug used to kill animals). It was her job to kill them.
