This is probably because of the selective news coverage I get as a NZer but it seems like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals goes a bit overboard on some things, do you think this is true or just a result of selective news coverage? On one of the sites I visit there was a big report of PETA complaining about a kosher slaughtering company because they said it was scary for the animal or something.. Which I thought was kinda silly, for them to focus on And didn't they make an official complaint about maddox? They certainly wrote to him a few times. It just seems a bit like they have bigger fish to fry, rather than focus on a group who try their hardest to make it as painless and as easy for the animal as possible (if they don't the meat has to be sold far cheaper) , and some dude who just rants about anything he thinks kids will look up to him for.
