I hope that because of them, and the publicity he got from the mess he will sell a lot of tickets and be able to make that rip to Europe!

I've been to a pet bird show where a mother and daughter went around opening the cages and turning the birds loose. I can just imagine PETA suggesting that cows would be better off back in the wild.

As a mod, I do have to be aware what I say on things like this... But as a person who grew up on a beef farm, I think this young man and his parents should be given the biggest attaboy we can give and I hope they sell every one of those tickets.

And IMHO, The lady who sent that email should be charged with whatever she can be charged with for sending adult materials to a minor.

In case someone missed it, the family does have a Facebook page for the raffle. Search cow raffle and it pops right up.

I used to belong to PETA, believe it or not.  Having grown up around family farms, having relatives with a large family farm, I have always appreciated the way the farmers  cared for their  livestock.  All the farmer's I have been privileged to have known have treated their animals properly and humanely.  

 

I did join for a while to help battle some of the abuses that occur on HUGE mega farms.  Workers who treat the animals badly and cruelly.  To some of them, the animal is just a work object, like a box or similar item.  They had enough hidden video to convince me to part with some money to help stop it.  After a few years, I saw nothing helping and they even sent a deceptive looking donation request a month before the dues invoice.  I could not tell them apart and when I complained, all I got was sorry, you should have read closer.  I didn't send in after that.

 

I never had any rude dealings with anyone and none of the literature ever asked me to commit improper acts or crimes.  There are a fringe of extremists that think they are answering a higher cause and do things like the above.  Hopefully that person is terminated from the organization.

 

I hope he sells all the tickets and someone really appreciates the new calf.  I'm glad I'm no longer a member of that association, although I still feel somehow embarrassed after reading that story.

I have to take issue with the thread title.

 

PETA does not need to be told to "Go fly a kite".

 

They need to be told to "Go and explore the joys of single participate reproduction"!

I chose to not really comment on it because with people like this I really have trouble not coming off the top turnbuckle.

If peta has a problem, why don't they gather the money to win the cow at auction?

Cause they want to tell other people what to do and how to live.

 

EDIT:  But at this point, it would be an excellent PR move for PETA to buy the cow for whatever amount the boy needs for his trip simultaneously  saving  the cow from the butcher and sponsoring the boy's trip.
