More on the PETA Trial
January 24, 2007

Check out Brit Hume's Political Grapevine video clip of the PETA trial which began Monday. PETA has been criticized by Senator Inhofe for funding radical extremist groups like the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front. As in the current trial, PETA has paid for the defense of ALF members after burning down university laboratories.

From the Grapevine:

Felony Animal Cruelty

Two staff members with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are on trial this week for killing animals and dumping them behind a grocery story in Ahoskie, North Carolina. The two are charged with felony animal cruelty. PETA has kept the workers on staff and is paying legal expenses.

PETA critics say the trial will expose the group's euthanasia policy of killing thousands of animals each year. The Center for Consumer Freedom — which has been a frequent target of PETA protests — is getting some payback — placing a mobile billboard outside the courthouse, and buying a full page ad in The New York Times promoting its new Web site —PetaKillsAnimals.com.
