"Moreover, you scorned our people, and compared the Albanese to sheep, and according to your custom think of us with insults. Nor have you shown yourself to have any knowledge of my race. Our elders were Epirotes, where this Pirro came from, whose force could scarcely support the Romans. This Pirro, who Taranto and many other places of Italy held back with armies. I do not have to speak for the Epiroti. They are very much stronger men than your Tarantini, a species of wet men who are born only to fish. If you want to say that Albania is part of Macedonia I would concede that a lot more of our ancestors were nobles who went as far as India under Alexander the Great and defeated all those peoples with incredible difficulty. From those men come these who you called sheep. But the nature of things is not changed. Why do your men run away in the faces of sheep?"
Letter from Skanderbeg to the Prince of Taranto ▬ Skanderbeg, October 31 1460

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals killed more than 95 per cent of animals in its care last year at a Virginia shelter, a shocking new report states.
The report, released by non-profit consumer group, claims that PETA - which is known for its outspoken stance on animal rights - were responsible for the deaths of nearly 2,000 adoptable animals last year alone.
The records also show that the animal-rights organization has killed more than 27,000 animals at its headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia since 1998.

Only 3,159 animals, mostly dogs and cats, were adopted in that time.
Records from the Virginia Department of Agriculture obtained through public records by the Centre for Consumer Freedom show figures that are quite contrary to PETA’s mission.
Records from 2011 alone state that of the 1,992 cats and dogs received, 34 were transferred, and 24 were adopted.
The remaining 1,911 were put down, the report states.



PETA hasn’t slowed down its slaughterhouse operation,’ CCF executive director Rick Berman said. ‘It appears PETA is more concerned with funding its media and advertising antics than finding suitable homes for these dogs and cats.’
The organization also runs the website PETAkillsanimals.com, which details their claims into the organisation’s seemingly shady operations.
More than 4 million animals are killed annually at shelters across the nation, citing unsustainable cost of caring for unwanted creatures and space limitations.

‘PETA hasn’t slowed down its slaughterhouse operation,’ CCF executive director Rick Berman said. ‘It appears PETA is more concerned with funding its media and advertising antics than finding suitable homes for these dogs and cats.’

PETA said in an April 2011 interview with Newsweek that the ‘no-kill’ policy simply wasn’t possible. ‘We would rather offer these animals a painless death than have them tortured, starved, or sold for research,’ Daphna Nachminovitch told the magazine.
'Despite its $37.4million budget, PETA employees make little effort to find homes for the thousands of animals they kill every year.'
-Centre for Consumer Freedom Report

However, humane societies in Nevada have successfully run ‘no-kill’ shelters. Bonney Brown, who is executive director of the Nevada Humane Society told Newsweek that with the help of more volunteers, 2007 became their first no-kill year.
PETA media liaison Jane Dollinger told The Daily Caller via email that most animals that fall into the Norfolk centre’s cair are ‘somehow unadoptable.’
While she did not dispute the claims, she qualified that many animals were killed because of ‘injury, illness, age, aggression, or because no good homes exist for them.’
The report by CCF implies that laziness, and not a lack of funding or volunteers, is to blame for the death rate.
The report states: ‘Despite its $37.4million budget, PETA employees make little effort to find homes for the thousands of animals they kill every year.
