Justice and PETA

At Telic Thoughts "defenders of science" are sometimes spoofed as was the case with this post. Special interest groups, which include animal rights activists, have been known for their hostility to certain scientific procedures. Yet they escape the wrath coming from the "defenders of science" which IDers so easily arouse. This TT post alludes to an organization known as PETA.

PETA is making news. Andrew Cook and Adria Hinkle, PETA employees, have been indicted on 21 counts of Cruelty to Animals. As reported at this link: "Police in Ahoskie, North Carolina arrested Cook and Hinkle on June 15, 2005 near a shopping-center dumpster, from which they recovered 18 dead pets in trash bags. Thirteen additional dead animals were recovered from the PETA-owned van in which they were traveling. Witnesses from the Bertie County (NC) Animal Shelter and the Ahoskie Animal Hospital later confirmed that the two PETA employees had collected animals earlier that day -- including puppies and kittens -- on the promise that PETA would find them adoptive homes."
