Does anyone recall who the announcer was during the Colts/Bears game? As well as, how do I get in contact with him?
He was talking about Michael Vick and mentioned that it would be in his best interest to donate to HSUS and PETA to show remorse and would, I imagine, be good "PR
I don't have a problem with him donating money, but if Vick donates money to HSUS and PETA, he is right back in the middle of killing pitbulls... Both HSUS and PETA have encouraged shelters to kill pitbulls without giving them a chance of rescue or adoption as well as, whispering into city officials ears and telling them to ban pitbulls in their cities...
Quotes from HSUS:
“We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding ...One generation and out. We have no problems with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding.”
— Animal People News
Quotes from PETA:
“Did we euthanize some animals who could have been adopted? Maybe.”
— PETA's Domestic Animal Issues & Abuse Department director Daphna Nachminovitch, in The Virginian-Pilot
“Humans have grown like a cancer. We're the biggest blight on the face of the earth.”
— Washingtonian magazine
“Probably everything we do is a publicity stunt ... we are not here to gather members, to please, to placate, to make friends. We're here to hold the radical line.”
— USA Today
“There is no hidden agenda. If anybody wonders about -- what’s this with all these reforms -- you can hear us clearly. Our goal is total animal liberation. [emphasis added]”
— “Animal Rights 2002” convention
"In the end, I think it would be lovely if we stopped this whole notion of pets altogether.”
“Our campaigns are always geared towards children and they always will be”
— PETA vice president Dan Matthews, on the Fox News Network
“We are complete press sluts.”
(ain't that the truth
— Ingrid Newkirk, in The New Yorker
Please Kill me with Kindness. Thank You, HSUS and PETA ( A must read)
In short, if you are going to donate Mike Vick, donate to local rescues or shelters, donating to PETA and HSUS isn't going to help your plight anymore because you will essentially STILL be killing pitbulls.
To the announcer, educate yourself on these animal rights groups before opening your mouth.
