Just when you thought you had heard it all from PETA comes the following. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have sent a proposal to the Somerset County, ME commissioners to lease their jail for the world’s first Lobster Empathy Center. What’s next, the Cockroach, Rat and Parasite Empathy Centers as well.
“A prison is the perfect setting to demonstrate how lobsters suffer when they are caught in traps or confined to cramped, filthy supermarket tanks,” PETA wrote in a June 2 letter to the commissioners. “The center will teach visitors to have compassion for these interesting, sensitive animals while also commemorating the millions of lobsters who are ripped from their homes in the ocean off the coast of Maine each year before being boiled alive.”
PETA, this is not a lobster … its a child in a lobster costume
More on the questioning of why sea cockroaches deserve more rights than people. Just when PETA does something intelligent like dog fighting awareness, they blow their credibility on nonsense. What will these people think of next?
