In a recent stunt PETA petitioned the village of Wool, England to change its name to Vegan Wool, England. The village was not impressed with the stupid request and ignored it.
In responce The Center for Consumer Freedom decided to use the same playbook and sent a letter to the Norfolk City Council Wednesday morning asking that Front Street, where PETA’s headquarters is located, be renamed “PETA Kills Avenue.”
The letter lays out the case against PETA perfectly
December 5, 2018Norfolk City Council1006 City Hall Building810 Union St.Norfolk, VA 23510Dear Councilmembers:I’m writing on behalf of the nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom to request you put Norfolk inthe spotlight and promote kindness to animals and raise awareness of unethical conduct. You cando this by renaming Front Street “PETA Kills Avenue.”For years, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has killed cats and dogs by the thousands atits headquarters, located at 501 Front St.Unlike the countless shelters that provide essential service and care to animals in need, PETA’s“shelter” on Front Street euthanizes the vast majority of the animals the organization receives. Infact, killing animals seems to be the main purpose of PETA’s so-called shelter, as no adoption hoursare posted nor are animals advertised on the organization’s site. Tax records show PETA even has awalk-in freezer to store the corpses.PETA’s president is Ingrid Newkirk. She has said,“I think it would be lovely if we stopped thiswhole notion of pets altogether,” and has advocated for the killing of all stray cats and the totaleradication of pit bulls.PETA has even gone so far as to steal and kill a 9 year-old girl’s healthy pet dog in 2014 in theEastern Shore. PETA eventually paid $50,000 to settle this case.Last year, according to public records filed with VDACS, PETA killed more than 1,800 cats and dogsand only adopted out 44. In some years, PETA’s kill rate has been higher than 90%.Animal lovers are shocked and outraged by PETA’s pro-killing attitude. Renaming Front Street to“PETA Kills Avenue” is a way to share this essential information with all people who love their petsand who may one day have to drop their pet off at a shelter.Other possibilities for your consideration include “Butcher Street” and “Serial Killer Way.”By simply changing the street name, Norfolk can raise awareness of this cruelty and remindeveryone to stay away from this horrid shelter.Please let me know your decision.Will Coggin
