Has PETA gone overboard on this one??
I am totally against any kind of cruelty to animals, and I think that organizations that help us to understand what kind of unhumane treatment that some animals are receiving, is basically a good thing.
Still, I think that this latest idea that peta has come up with is definitely missing the mark of what they are trying to accomplish.

There was an accident in Utah where a semi-truck and trailer accidently went off the road, and into a river running beside the road. The truck was carrying a load of turkeys to the packing house, so when the truck and trailer went over the bank and crashed, many of the turkeys were killed; some escaped when the crates broke, and others were trapped in the water and were rescued.
So now, peta wants to erect a monument on this spot in memory of the turkeys that were killed in the accident. The monument will encourage people to become vegans so that turkeys will not have to suffer.
These turkeys were on their way to be butchered anyway, so it is not like they would have lived much longer in any case.

It is my opinion that the money peta wants to spend on creating and erecting this monument could be better spent feeding hungry animals or sheltering them.

PETA is filled with insane people, in my opinion. They kill thousands of adoptable cats and dogs every year. Mad PETA is filled with disgusting people.

Documents show PETA killed nearly 2,000 shelter animals in 2013

PETA 'killed more than 95 per cent of adoptable dogs and cats in its care last year' shocking new report says

Shocking Photos: PETA's Secret Slaughter of Kittens, Puppies
(If seeing dead animals upsets you, please don't read this particular articale. The other two article linked are trigger free, thank goodness.)

So, do I think putting up a statue for a couple turkeys getting accidentally killed a bit silly? Yes? Is it "overboard" compared to the rest of the insane cr*p that PETA has done? Not really.

Honestly people, don't support PETA.
