PETA Needs To STFU
Odell Beckham, Jr. spent some time during this offseason at a zoo in Myrtle Beach. Being a celebrity gained him access the rest of us don't really get, so he was able to frolic with a chimpanzee and a beautiful white tiger.
Nearing 2 million views, that post has also pulled in over 3,000 comments, and also got the folks at PETA all fussy.
The same PETA that wanted to turn the former site of the Circus Drive-In into a "Museum of Animal Torture".
The same PETA that wanted to euthanize the Seaside boardwalk cats.
The same PETA that kills thousands of animals each year.
The same PETA that tries to take seeing-eye dogs away from the blind.
The same PETA that supports the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front, both of which are notorious for fire-bombing laboratories.
Don't get me wrong, I'm strongly opposed to animal abuse. I'm a little iffy on the concept of zoos in general, because I don't think animals should be caged, but I also think that in some cases animals are safer in protection than in the wild, so for the preservation of some species zoos might help.
Still, I don't see how a tiger wrestling with a toy just like a typical housecat would is any type of abuse. Chimps love to throw poop, why wouldn't they love to throw a football?
