    PETA’s brand includes the shocking and the extreme. These statements are no exception. Will their donors be surprised and appalled? Probably not, at this point, but only time will reveal their reactions.

    When hyperventilating hyperbole is the SOP for responding to events like Cecil’s death, it loses any moral impact it might otherwise have. It becomes easy to dismiss organizations, such as PETA, that routinely engage in it as fringe organizations. In this particular instance, by suggesting the dentist should be hanged they have, in my opinion, crossed the line and are now firmly in the land of the fringe and not an organization I would take seriously.

    PETA loves to cross the line, what should anyone expect but a statement that borders on threatening. While what this low life “hunter” did was reprehensible, threatening his life gives his supporters the fuel they need to elevate him to victim status. It is without question this guy is one of the most hated people in the world right now. I’m surprised I haven’t seen more “support” for him from the hunting enthusiasts, maybe even they think he deserves the moral outrage. PETA would do more good by aligning with other organizations to push for legislation that would make the import of exotic animal parts as trophies illegal. Or to join an effort to see Palmer extradited to stand trial for poaching. But as usual they go to a place where they are comfortable, the extreme. I’m passionate about animal welfare, but have never been able to embrace the PETA philosophy, and sadly I have rarely seen where it truly works to the advantage of the animals.

    People are animals, too and shouldn’t be subjected to arbitrary killing!

    While Peta often goes over the line and in my opinion has in this instance, this highly educated wealthy nut who butchered a magnificent animal for fun should be locked away for years! But being an American he will get off with nothing and have lots of other US nuts supporting him.
