PETA: People Eager to Trashbin Animals

PETA employees arrested for cruelty to animals. Two PETA employees disposed of dead animals in trash bins. OK, no big deal there...if not for the fact that (a) the dumping was illegal, and (b) the real kicker: many of the dead animals were adoptable before PETA sent them to meet their maker!

See, PETA gets some animals from animal shelters and tells the animal shelters they'll find them homes. The animal shelter, understaffed and usually underfunded, agrees. Then PETA...euthanized these animals?!?

Jailarity ensues: link

By the way, hat tip to tnjack for sending this my way...
