So, while reading an article about guinea pigs and why you shouldn't buy live animals from pet shops: Daddy noticed a link to PeTA with quotes form PetCo employees. Curious (because he's anti-PeTA and, for some reason is attracted by their stupidity) he clicked on the link. Well, the page was gone. But, what showed up APPALLED him.

"This could have happened for several reasons:
1. The page may be extinct, just as you soon could be, too, if you are still loading your plate with hamburgers, cheese pizzas, and other artery-clogging animal-based foods.
2. The page may have been moved, like animals in circuses, who are hauled around the country in poorly ventilated trailers and boxcars for up to 50 weeks a year in all kinds of extreme weather conditions.
3. You may have made a mistake while typing the address, or we may have made a mistake when creating the link. Mistakes can be corrected. When Anna Wintour got a dead raccoon dumped on her lap by an angry anti-fur protester, she should have learned that wearing the pelts of animals who were cruelly gassed, strangled, or electrocuted is a big mistake. Yet the creepy Cruella continues to push fur in the pages of Vogue.
4. Our Web server may be malfunctioning. When stun guns and “killing machines” in slaughterhouses malfunction, live chickens get dumped into tanks of scalding-hot water (for feather removal) while they are completely conscious, and workers cut the hooves off terrified, conscious cows.
What you can do:
1. You can try again, correcting any misspellings in the address.
2. You can read our Frequently Asked Questions, to see if your question is answered there.
3. You can visit our home page or our Web sites about the following issues:

4. You can go vegetarian. This won’t help you find the link you’re looking for, but it will make you feel better, reduce your risk of debilitating diseases, and help save thousands of animals all at the same time. It will also answer the question, “If we teach our children to be kind to animals, why do we adults still exploit them?”
5. You can do something right now to help the animals who are suffering on factory farms, on fur farms, in circuses, and in laboratories: You can join PETA.Please visit our site map or search engine if you feel you've reached this page in error."

Now, forcing that shit on people? That is JUST like PeTA.
