For the most part.
PETA spends an inordinate amount of money on media campaigns encouraging no use or consumption of animal products. In my mind, that's money that could've been spent directly on feeding and sheltering the animals in their possession rather than encouraging their vision of morality.
Here's one to really make the idealists squirm - some animals are bred because they are very likely to have a specific disease. It's done so that the animal can be part of a study to find a cure for the disease or an early detection technique. If you think that's bad, guess what they do with the animals that are born without the disease. And I can't really condemn it - I know there are a thousand different ways I benefit from an animal having died.
But I still don't like seeing puppies killed. Who does?

Killing because you don't want the animals your responsible for producing , inexcusable .
They could have been adopted out , or otherwise given away , what was done was unnecessary , & IMO deserves severe punishment .
Free pure blooded huskies aren't hard to give away FFS ........

Exactly, totally irresponsible of them to have mismanaged their stocks in such a way that meant they had to cull a third of their animals because of a "slow winter season", and the method of culling used sounds shambolic and unnecessarily cruel too. They shouldn't be allowed to operate in the business if this is how they do things.

Read the story of what happened and then try to tell me it was a simple case of euthanasia of dogs. Dogs were running around mangled with half their faces shot off cause they didn't die from the first bullet. Euthanasia is one thing, but walking into a pen of 100 dogs and opening fire is quite another

The food you eat is ABSOLUTELY not killed in a more inhumane way than these dogs. Do a little research before stating your opinion as fact. Not to mention there is quite a difference between animals raised for food and animals that are pets. Also, if you had perhaps read anything about this story you would see that local citizens and kennels said they would have gladly adopted the dogs if they had been asked or given a chance to.

In a lot of cases they are killed in less humane ways. It is something that I accept and I have researched it. You seem to be up in arms (like I said) because it was a bunch of dogs If it was turkeys I doubt you would bat an eye. I never stated the way they were killed was fair or right (in fact I said it should have been handled better). Even if the local shelters had taken the dogs they would have had to be put down eventually if no one adopted them. Its not like these places have an endless supply of money to house and feed 100 dogs for the rest of their lives.
