Center for Consumer Freedom Proposes Renaming Norfolk, VA Street to "PETA Kills Ave."

Press Release:

    PETA's headquarters is located at the street in question

    Animal liberation organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is getting a taste of its own medicine. Recently, PETA attempted to persuade the English village of Wool to change its name to "Vegan Wool." And earlier this week, a street in a French village, Rue de la Saucisse-or "sausage street"-was similarly targeted by PETA, with the organization demanding the street be renamed "Rue de la Soycisse," referencing soy.

    In response, the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) is fighting fire with fire. On the morning of December 5, CCF asked the city of Norfolk, VA (where PETA's headquarters is located) to consider renaming Front Street to "PETA Kills Ave." in order to better reflect the actions of the group headquartered at 501 Front Street. "Butcher St." and "Serial Killer Way" are other possibilities.

    CCF's letter to the Norfolk city council can be viewed here.

    CCF research director Will Coggin commented:

    "For too long, PETA has been killing thousands of cats and dogs at its headquarters/slaughterhouse on Front Street. By simply changing the street name to 'PETA Kills Ave.,' the good people of Norfolk will know of PETA's dirty secret. We urge the Norfolk city council to implement this animal-friendly name change."

Now this verse has some real poetic bite to it.

I came very close to adding the following, but that would be piling on:

Send those mighty Pythons hunted in Florida for safe protection here
But only those who voted Republican in the past election there
Leave the others where they be
As they spread from Sea to Sea

I swear B.T., I have had a terrible cold, which began 34 hours before my first, great return county commissioner meeting, where I hacked, sputtered and wheezed, continuing through the stock market and the Dow yet crashing thousands of more points, and now, your comment was the first belly laugh I have had all week, and I thank-you.

Since Liberals believe that our nation's immigration statutes and policy are written upon the base of the Statue of Liberty in poem form, maybe we should continue that Liberal /Socialist tradition and extend it to other levels of governing by that one poem regarding all Animal Control statutes and policy.

Perhaps just a simple Plaque on the Front of PETA HQ:

“Give me your tired, your poor dogs and cats, who are aggressive and unadoptable
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free and, feral cats dying of contagious diseases; animals who are wracked with cancer; elderly animals who have no quality of life
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, and we will dispose of them in an ethical manner.
Euthanasia is a kindness for animals who are suffering beyond hope and have nowhere else to turn"

Thank-you for your response to this ongoing issue of whether or not to eat meat.

This is nothing more than a smear campaign by a front group for the meat industry, which has long tried to make PETA and other animal protection groups look bad in an attempt to distract from the real issues. Unlike the industries this group represents--which kill animals painfully, so they can make money by selling their flesh--PETA is a shelter of last resort for animals who need euthanasia to end their suffering (many of whom have been rejected by other facilities because euthanizing them would make their “numbers” look bad). This includes dogs who are aggressive and unadoptable because they have been kept chained their entire lives; feral cats dying of contagious diseases; animals who are wracked with cancer; elderly animals who have no quality of life and whose desperate guardians brought them to PETA because they can’t afford to pay a vet to euthanize them; and the list goes on. Euthanasia is a kindness for animals who are suffering beyond hope and have nowhere else to turn. PETA refers healthy, adoptable animals to local shelters and has also found excellent, lifelong homes for many animals themselves.
