PETA Says Don't Free Parakeets


AdJab points out some of PETA's recent overbearing animal protection stupidity stating PETA registered a complaint over a Samsung X200 mobile phone ad in India which shows two kids letting a parakeet out of its cage. We'll give you a minute to utter your collective "Huh?" OK? Done wallowing in the obsessive meddlings of an uptight organization that think all animals should live in a posh Park Avenue Suite? Good. And now for the rest of the story. Oops, that's some other guy's line. Anyway, it seems you need some kind of permit to use parakeets in an ad. AdJab humorously solves the whole problem by suggesting creatives, in the future, just CGI the little guys in thus avoiding all manner of PETAmania.

What for you is obsession, for millions of species is daily suffering. I agree that some times exaggerate, but is the only way to make the people to wake up and to take off the specism of the head.

Animal liberation now.

In time, animals do not want a Park Avenue Suite, only that us don't intervene with its lives.

Sorry by the bad english.

PETA wants to liberate all animals from their lives, hence PETA slaughters most animals they come into contact with, and as we've seen, PETA now resorts to killing kittens and puppies in traveling vans, then throwing the animal carcasses in the nearest dumpster.

Parakeets die in the wild. They are domesticated birds. Therefore, if you let them out, you're killing them. Gosh, I can see why you'd want to rant about avoiding death.

We doubt the birds were actually released into the wild during the shoot. We just get a bit ticked when groups like this have nothing better to do than complain about a situation which is obviously know to be just a photoshoot piece of action and not a worldwide movement to release all parakeets into the wild.

As always, PETA can't distinguish between good and bad attention. They have always felt that taking part in outrageous stunts will 'bring attention' to the 'plight' of animals. What it does is bring attention to them, not their supposed cause, and the end result is that this attention comes at the expense of their credibility. The overwhelming majority of people agree with PETA that animals should not be abused, it's just that most don't agree with PETA's definition of 'abuse'.

This is something PETA has never gotten.

On a mediocre news week they still get almost as much press as Paris Hilton. I would say they are def. doing something right, even if one doesn't agree with their bullshit (wait, am I allowed to say that: maybe peopleshit?)

What kills me is the press attention we give this group of knuckleheads. PETA is an afront to my intelligence. Human beings developed into our civilizations very much due to the domestication of animals for food, garments, labor and even friendship. Thank you animals! If PETA is so set on their cause they need to be bereft of ALLLLL animal products - does this include fossil fuel? That's from animals. What if the wood that made their antique bengal armoire was pulled to the mill by some poor elephant - byby. What if the coffee beans in their freaking non dairy frappucino was carried to it's port of destination by an ass - sorry junior. No soup for you! Do roaches,, mosquitos, flies and other house-hold vermin now get a pass as well? If they do, can I send allthe rats rummaging through the trash in front ogf my apt. building to the PETA offices? Stop it already. People kicking puppies is bad - a parakeet in an ad is not a problem! Go find some puppy kickers you freaking morons!

You would never see an ad with people releasing their dogs into the streets to fend for themselves. Why is this different?

You anti-PETA people need to get lives. Of course the organization may be filled with overzealous believers...that's the case with any organization with a viewpoint. On balance, however, their cause is just.

Hard to know what PETA, and their drones, really want. If you keep the animals, you're a slave owner...if you let them go, you've endangered the species.
For some reason the 'Disney' mentality of a "PETA drone" allows the killing of healthy animals in the back of a van by their Guru's...but that same 'Disney' mentality objects to freeing a parakeet by some kids? Go figure!
