There is really nothing newsworthy, or ethical, about PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. It is a radical organization with extremist views that have nothing to do with the well-being of wild or domestic animals. What PETA wants is a petless, meatless society for you and me, and they don't really care how many animals are killed or harmed to further that radical agenda.

You would provide far better service to your overwhelmingly urban readership if you gave some well-deserved ink to the many hunters in Utah and around the U.S. who spend thousands of volunteer hours each year working to protect and improve habitat for all wildlife.
