Does PETA only focus on the extremes of animal cruelty or is the kind of torture they cover commonplace?

I've always been curious about that. I'm a brand new vegetarian. If you could answer my questions and follow up with any advice you have for me, that would be great.

PETA is bad news.

they use extreme examples.. Many are even staged.. I know the Kosher slaughter is a farce. Ten years ago (20) their goal was noble and many humane laws now come with sever fines and imprisonment.. But it remains that 10,000,000 + animals must be slaughtered to feed the world daily .. and very little is wasted..

PETA is made up of people like you and me who don't want animals to be treated inhumanely. PETA is against all kinds of cruelty.

I feel that much of PETAs propaganda is scripted.

Peta is an advertising firm that promotes how crazy it is. They have to either seek out or stage the most outrageous examples of cruelty to get enough money to keep the organisation going. Bribes must have been involved in making the seal clubbing video, no other way they could have gotten that close.

look at the videos themselves. No time stamp , no identifying company logos of the so called abusers, no identifiable persons, not even an identifiable place where the supposed "abuses" occurred. Just a lot of "undercover investigations" by unidentified people. It seems weird that vocal PETA won't take individual... More

Like any interest group, they are going to choose the best examples to demonstrate their point. However, it is probably more common than you might expect. Remember that PETA can't be everywhere at all times, so it's likely that these things are happening in other places as well, that they don't find out about.

There president said "Six million Jews died in concentration camps, but six billion broiler chickens will die this year in slaughter houses." -Ingrid Newkirk I dont know how you compare a human and a chicken PETA also doesnt supporting owning animals as "pets"

Just a few videos can`t be held accountable for what happens at ALL slaughter houses. @ SIlver most of those websites are probably run or funded by peta so they can`t be trusted. @Silver I didn`t say all of them.
