Adria Hinkle of Norfolk and Andrew Cook of Virginia Beach, both workers for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, are being tried together on 21 counts of felony animal cruelty, seven counts of littering and three counts of obtaining property by false pretenses.More from the same article:
The prosecution asserted that the animals were killed maliciously and with intent, while the defense argued that Hinkle and Cook euthanized the animals humanely and they would have been put down at the shelter in Bertie County by the most acceptable method.
Lawyers for two PETA workers charged with animal cruelty argued today that they were doing their job and that the only thing they might have done wrong was dispose of carcasses improperly.That is interesting. It is PETA’s job to kill animals. How liberal of them.
Vegans also tend to be animal rights freaks. The message is clear. PETA is a terrorist organization full of dumb people.
However, vegans - vegetarians who also avoid dairy products - scored significantly lower, averaging an IQ score of 95 at the age of 10.
