PETA at work
PETA is demanding the Feds investigate the deaths of two bison during recent flooding at Hershey Park's Zoo America.
PETA says Zoo America staff did not take adequate precautions to ensure the bison would be safe, prior to the flood.
"It's upsetting to imagine the terror that these two animals experienced, having no way to escape as the water engulfed them," said PETA's Delcianna Winders.
Numerous people drowned or were otherwise killed, during the flood caused by the remnants of Hurricane Lee hitting much of eastern PA and other areas. I would imagine numerous animals, either pets or livestock, also succumbed to flood waters? Not to mention approximately 40,000 pheasants at PGC's Loyalsock Game Farm.
Difference? There was near-saturation pictorial coverage of the two bison at Hershey, thanks to area TV stations. And plenty of televised interviews with distraught viewers, upset that the bison died.
PETA: Some of the same animal rights people that are dedicated to ending all recreational hunting and trapping, folks. And they never pass up a golden opportunity to grab some press time, or exploit public attention. Especially when one like this comes along.
