Earlier this year, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) raised a stink for Paul the Octopus. Paul is the psychic octopus that predicted the winners for seven of the World Cup winners in Germany. This animal seems to display incredible psychic ability.
Paul the Octopus lives in a tank at a Sea Life Centre in Oberhausen, Germany. Paul presumably lives at a comfortable temperature at the Sea Life Centre. He also appears to have plenty of food available to him. Yet, PETA decided that Paul needed their help. PETA decided Paul should be free and they raised a lot of ruckus to ensure his freedom.
He remains in the tank in Germany.
For the last two months, 300 goats were said to be beheaded in Mexico. Was it the Chupacabra who killed them as the people in Mexico are led to believe? Was it drug cartels murdering goats wanting to scare ‘simple’ villagers to distract them from what’s really going on around the villages? Is it just the owners of these animals wanting to gain notoriety?
I have so far not read one statement from PETA regarding these particular incidents in Mexico.
Does PETA’s assistance depend on where you live? Does it depend on the animal displaying special abilities before an animal is defended? Does it matter if a ‘mythical creature’ is slaying the animals or not?
I am making this post with the intention of a PETA representative answering any or all of these questions.
I would like to know.
Perhaps an open letter to PETA might get them to answer any or all of these questions.
The mythical creature (El Chupacabra), although presumably an animal, has never beheaded victims before. He has merely sucked the blood out of the bodies of his victims. This was apparently okay. Beheadings, however, doesn’t seem okay to me. Why haven’t you weighed in on this?
In a superstitious culture, like Mexico, where animals are attacked by another animal (a mythical one at that) – suddenly the mythical animal begins to attack innocent goats in the same fashion as drug cartels would?
Why is that?
PETA, do you care enough about these animals to investigate and see what’s really going on there? Do you only fight for animals living in cages…or just those in tanks lately? Is Mexico simply too dangerous of an area for you to raise a stink in?
Not judging, just want to know. Any clarification on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
