SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Dec. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Unfortunately little publicity has been given to the Animal Scam that rakes in millions each year to achieve the Animal Rights Movement's radical agenda to end all animal use and ownership.
"Animal Rights" is an international movement closely aligned with environmental extremists. The Movement spread to California from England more than 20 years ago and has slowly crept all across the country. Legislation is their weapon of choice! Pet shops are being outlawed which threatens all species of pets, not only dogs and cats.
The ongoing legislative battle to regulate pet ownership out of existence in incremental steps is waging in our cities, counties, and at state and federal levels. It is a radical agenda with a well greased and well financed "propaganda machine" that has duped the media and elected officials at all levels of government. HSUS is the worst offender as it is not a government agency as some believe, and has no affiliation with local humane societies.
In the past 5 years, the extremists have made tremendous inroads with anti-pet legislation, declaring each victory a "first step." They have reared their ugly head in Texas, that last bastion of "freedom." To these anti-pet groups, there are no responsible breeders of pets and they want all pet breeding and sales to become unlawful. Most pet owners do not realize how this legislation will affect them in the future.
People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) purchased billboard advertising recently to attack Thanksgiving tradition with this text, "KIDS: If you wouldn't eat your dog, why eat a turkey? Go Vegan. PETA" This sick ad transposed a pet dog's head on a turkey's body.
For their agenda regarding all animal use (including pet ownership), check out National Animal Interest Alliance's website:
Wayne Pacelle, (HSUS) Vegan President: "We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding ... One generation and out. We have no problems with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding."
Ingrid Newkirk, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals: "For one thing we would no longer allow breeding. People could not create different breeds. If people had companion animals in their homes, these animals would have to be refugees from the animal shelter and the streets ... But as the surplus of cats and dogs declined, eventually companion animals would be phased out and we would return to a more symbiotic relationship - enjoyment at a distance."
Tom Regan, (The Philosophy of Animal Rights, Culture and Animals Foundation): "It is not larger, cleaner cages that justice demands ... But empty cages."
