Maybe she should think about the fact that outlawing hunting would subject MILLIONS of animals to increased disease and starvation. Not to mention the certain population explosion in the short term that would certainly increase injury through accident with automobiles. Then comes starvation along with the animals that would be exposed to a slow freezing death because of inadequate fat reserves.PETA has angered stray-cat caretakers by trapping strays, hauling them to PETA headquarters and euthanizing them. PETA argues that euthanasia is kinder than leaving cats on the street, where they are subject to injury, disease and freezing cold.
``It's either a quick, painless death or a slow, uncomfortable death,'' says Newkirk, who worked as an animal control officer in Washington before founding PETA. ``The difference, I think, between us and many of the `no-kill' people is that we don't pretend to have a magic wand.''
