Report: PETA Interested In Buying SeaWorldSAN DIEGO -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants to buy a SeaWorld park, possibly the one in San Diego, free the animals inside and replace them with virtual reality exhibits, it was reported Thursday.Officials with the animal rights group say they have an anonymous donor willing to shell out big money to purchase at least one of SeaWorld's three parks, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.Beer company Anheuser-Busch, which is in the process of being purchased by Belgium firm InBev, operates SeaWorld parks in San Diego, Orlando and San Antonio. Experts believe InBev will divest itself of Anheuser-Busch's parks, according to the Union-Tribune.
PETA sent InBev a letter Friday offering to buy one park, with plans to replace existing animal exhibits with virtual reality exhibits, the newspaper reporte
Who would actually pay and go see with virtual exhibits? No one! That is why we have HD TV sets. People pay money to see the marine life, because that is the only chance we would ever get to see it with our own eyes.
PETA wants to advertise vegan message on border fenceWhile many view the contentious border fence as a government fiasco, an animal rights group sees a rare opportunity.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals plans today to announce an unusual marketing pitch to the U.S. government: Rent us space on the fence for billboards warning illegal border crossers there is more to fear than the Border Patrol.
The billboards, in English and Spanish, would offer the caution: "If the Border Patrol Doesn't Get You, the Chicken and Burgers Will — Go Vegan."
"We think that Mexicans and other immigrants should be warned if they cross into the U.S. they are putting their health at risk by leaving behind a healthier, staple diet of corn tortillas, beans, rice, fruits and vegetables," said Lindsay Rajt, assistant manager of PETA's vegan campaigns.
These are illegal immigrants they are not suppose to be here in the first place. They are breaking the law coming across the border, and PETA is worried about their diets?
These people are crazy and hypocritical. Do they not go to the hospital when they are sick? I am not sure how they raise money. Actually now that I think about it, I give loose change to crazy homeless people all the time. Maybe people just fell sorry for PETA.
But I don't want completely bash PETA, even though its so easy. They do manage to get hot chicks to take their clothes off. And maybe 1 out out 100 of the wack job ideas are good. Like last year when they came up with alternative solutions to shooting the pigeons at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.
Local 12--PETA is asking Cincinnati Major Mark Mallory to step in and stop officials at Paul Brown Stadium from shooting pigeons living near the stadium.
Fans have complained that the birds' droppings land on their heads and in their food and beer during the games.
Stadium officials sent a letter to the city asking for permission to shoot down the birds. Cincinnati Code specifically prohibits bird hunting.
The city tells Local 12 it will work with the Bengals to decide how best to handle the pigeon problem. Local 12's Joe Webb will show you the damage the pigeons are causing at the stadium, and why the Bengals want to get rid of them, coming up on Local 12 at Five.This afternoon, PETA sent a letter to Mayor Mallory asking the Mayor not to allow the pigeons to be shot down. PETA says shooting the birds won't solve problems at the stadium and says it wants to work with the city to develop "humane solutions".
But I am pretty sure that if a pigeon shit in my beer at a football game, I would hunt that bird down and grill it.
