sheepThis animal rights group wants to protect the feelings of sheep and cartoons, but kills thousands of pets

The world’s largest animal rights group is growing stupider, demanding Hollywood change the ending of  Dumbo and calling for a government investigation of mean words said to sheep.

Meanwhile, they are killing thousands of animals at their own facilities.

“Representatives from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals went undercover to get footage of a sheep farmer using curse words in front of a flock at Boorungie Station in Australia — then used it to file a complaint claiming the behavior constituted abuse,” National Review’s Katherine Timpf reports.

“The allegation was that bad language was used by an employee on the property in front of the sheep, and that they could have been offended by the use of bad language,” farmer Ken Turner tells Australia’s ABC.

The complaint was actually investigated. The farmer was not prosecuted, only because the videotape was not enough evidence.

Animal rights activists are convinced the sheep will be offended by the tone of voice.

“What they will be getting though is the threat inherent in the way that voice is used,” claims Australian animal rights activist Lynda Stone.

But PETA is also concerned about the feelings of drawings shaped like animals.

“Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus has announced that it will stop using elephants in its shows by 2018, but that’s not enough for PETA — they now want a Dumbo remake that will free the film’s fictional elephants, too,” Timpf reports.

“After Disney revealed plans to have Tim Burton remake the classic movie, PETA’s senior president wrote an open letter to Burton, urging him to change the ending so Dumbo and his mom ‘can have a truly happy ending by living out their lives at a sanctuary.’ (A little weird considering that these elephants do not actually exist and therefore will not be actually living anywhere at all,)” writes Timpf.

But PETA isn’t as concerned about the actual, living animals in its own facilities.

In fact, PETA is killing animals as quickly as they can acquire them.

People send unwanted pets to PETA shelters convinced they will be cared for.

But the world’s largest animal rights group has instead euthanized 33,000 pets since 1998.

PETA has killed at least 82 percent of all the animals in its shelters every year since 2008.

In 2009, PETA killed 97.3 percent of the animals placed in its care.

PETA claims it kills the animals because no one wanted to adopt them, but an investigation by Virginia state officials founds 84 percent of all the animals it kills are killed within 24 hours of entering the shelter.

In the span of just two months, Virginia Beach’s PETA shelter killed 245 animals and adopted out only 17.

Yes, PETA kills more animals than Ted Nugent.

But don’t worry. They still care about Australian sheep’s feelings and cartoon elephants.
