This Disgusts Me

This story came to me by way of Marty Burke and my first assumption on reading it was that it had to be one of those false stories that occasionally gallops around the Internet. Then I got to the URL at the end.

"Wow, what an exciting day it's been.

I'll try to start at the beginning. This actually started about 2 years ago. We don't really have an SPCA here in the 2 counties, Bertie and Hertford. We have Animal Control to hold the animals. And the cats and dogs, puppies and kittens that are dropped off at the 2 vets here.

The vets do try to hold them for a little while and then PETA comes and takes them back to Virginia Beach to "find them good homes". They pick up at all the animal controls and the vets. I live way out in the woods, nothing here but the nearest town is Ahoskie, a very small town with one Wal-Mart as the only shopping store.

Well, the year before last and last year there were a number of cats and dogs found dead in the dumpsters, once behind the Chinese restaurant and then behind the Piggley wiggley. We all thought the local animal control or whoever picks up animals from the vets that are put to sleep just got lazy and put them there.

Well, last night the police, undercover, followed PETA from my vet's office where they just picked up some wonderful kittens, to find them homes. These kittens were just weaned and very sweet. This is the vet where I take pictures and work part time. Anyway, they put the kittens in the van [PETA] and killed them and took them to the dumpster at Piggly Wiggly. Where the police got them. They were actually caught in the act of dumping dead animals in the dumpster. There were a lot of animals so the police called my vet, Dr. Proctor, and animal control to come and identify the animals. Sure enough they got them. They were both PETA people. They were held in the local jail for while, not sure how long. Now it's all over the news. YEAH. My vet is so angry, he is calling and being interviewed by all the local news people. We want the word spread all over the world.

Who would think in a tiny little town like this is where it's all going to go down? That's probably why they thought they could get away with it. Oh, they also got them for illegal drugs. The van was full of the drugs. Email everyone and get the word out.

If any stations will pick this up or want to know about it, my vet can tell them. It's in Ahoskie, N.C. His name is Dr. Patrick Proctor.

I'm so excited they finally got caught. and sick over what has happened. I just was petting and loving on those kittens yesterday. This really shows the true PETA.

Of course, PETA won't make a statement yet and will probably say they weren't associated with this. But they were. Finally they are caught!"

Here's the story from a local TV station.

I'm sure that there are some good people in PETA. It seems clear that these folks weren't among them.
