    PETA requests that Eight Belles Jockey be suspended

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/more/05/04/bc.rac.peta.eightbelles.ap/index.html?cnn=yes

    NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is seeking the suspension of Eight Belles' jockey after the filly had to be euthanized following her second-place finish in the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.

    I am all for people standing up for what they belive in but, this seems kind of extreme IMHO.

    The Barbaro story seems similar in some aspects.

    ...“There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t mourn dear, dear Barbaro,” said Marsha Henman, a Louisville housewife. “I gave him my whole heart. But now that his heart is worm food, maybe I can move on. Hopefully he is now fully restored up in heaven, with a midget sitting on his back whipping him again and again and again. I am sure he misses that. God knows I miss watching it.”

    hey, thats part of horse racing.
    I feel bad for the horse, but that horse died doing what it loved I bet, racing.




    PETA,
    is a group that is very well funded, but useses those funds in the attempt to try to make others feel the way they do and to take away all animal related sports or activitys that man gets involved with
    ( and women )..




    I won't even get into my Gamecocks..... :




    But if a PETA member steps foot on my property,
    I will spank that ass like a race horses, and send them on their way...


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    PETA is a joke.

    I've repeatedly posted stuff on here on how they do things even worse than this.
    Google, Puppies, PETA, Dumpster.

    It will get you all kinds of articles like this.....

    Note the number of pets Euthanized by them in this document that they submit to the state......
