PETA
« on: June 28, 2009, 04:16:46 PM »
I just got off the phone with someone claiming to "be with PETA".  They got my name from an interview I did recently with a local paper.  She informed me that I was enslaving the honey bee!  I told her as politly as possible to go pound sand.  Has anyone else had to deal with these frootloops?

Wow! Might have been nice if she had done a little research first!

She's just mad at you because you're human. I'm sure there's a million other things she nor peta like about you or the human race. They are a cult.

PETA has been saying this stuff for a while now. I've come across their "statement" about keeping bees enslaved a few times on the internet while researching honeybee info.
Its really reaching for it when they start up with hobby beekeepers.
Bees don't get kept if they don't want to. They are free to leave anytime they want, as we are all painfully aware of.
Thats what I would have told her as well, hey I keep a hive for them if they want to leave they are free to at any point, just as the birds do in the bird houses that are up.
So I take a little honey for the rent, so what?
I also give them a place to survive the winters, a source for water, I plant lots of bee flowers and if there is no natural food source for them I will feed them so they will not starve.
Its a mutual agreement.

PETA, ya ethical treatment my ,,,  The peta group have uthenized more animals than any other animal RIGHTS group. they have the lowest placement rate, and the highest killing rate. Even the SPCA adopts out more animals than Peta, and they are not the best adoption agency. They also euthinize the animals, but its way lower than any body else.

G3farms, that's hilarious!!  PETA would get a lot farther if they even got near the spectrum called reasonability and logic. And, yes, I agree that they end up killing a LOT of animals and causing other animals a LOT of problems. Duh.

 :-D G3 you are too funny!!
Thats an idea though, it would be awesome to take PETA on a tour through a beeyard and lets see who keeps who. I always feel like bees are actually people keepers.

Hey--Here too :)

I'm all for respecting animals. It's the reason I've got pastured chickens and turkeys rather than buying both from the store. I have bees now to try to give them a boost and will be creating an acre of purely bee habitat. Etc., etc.

I think PETA needs to spend a bit more time and $ researching what they are fighting so they come up with somewhat intelligent arguments. "Enslaving bees?" Yikes!

Sort of off the subject, but there is a point behind it all. I used to take rabbits to 'Rabbit Days' at the big chain feedstore so that anyone who bought rabbits for Easter pets would know how to take care of them. (I met some really good people with strange ideas about how to take care of rabbits!)

PETA showed up in full dress; one was like a pig and the other one was like a cow with udder....a man in costume to boot!  :roll: They were running people away from talking to me which hurt the animals in the long run.

I found out that before they came after me at the feed store, they had stopped and got 9 puppies for FREE.....took them to the local park and turned them loose....the puppies, being puppies, went right into traffic and all but one was ran over and killed in traffic....but that was OK with PETA, as it was the choice of the puppies to go where they wanted...even if it killed them. :-x

I left to get something to eat and one of the fast food joints and a car followed me....when I came out with a sack of good to go....there was some jerk trying to dump out my rabbits that I had with me.....I BLEW UP!  :-D

It would not surprise me if they were some of the folks who go around and knock over the hives so the bees can get away from being slaves....

it's easy to make PETA go away

start quoting the bible  :-D

Genesis 1:26-28 (King James Version)

 26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

 28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.


they turn inside out and melt into gooey puddles.....

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I have not had a problem with them yet, however if they ever did come around my place I would be happy to introduce them th "Mr Buckshot"

I guess a couple of years back they were hitting the dog shows, putting anti freeze in the water bowls of dogs in the show cages, there position was "better dead than in a cage"

I guess that I am enslaving honey bees too.  I have an electric fence around my hives.  :-D

If people weren't supposed to eat animals, they wouldn't be made of meat.

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Sometimes I think when people join an organization like that its more about having something to belong to that makes them feel important or like they are doing something important.
They also routinely break the law with the things they do which probably attracts the type of people that feel they are above the law to begin with or fulfills some sort of need and it gives them an outlet.
They are out of touch with reality, honeybee slavery being a prime example.
I agree with what JP says about it being cultish.

Brenda, your story is exactly the behavior I am referring to.
They know no boundries, have no respect, break the law and are getting away with it.
