Today I'm going to tell you about a claim coming from the Center for Consumer Freedom in which a former PETA employee said, PETA “Would Routinely Euthanize Healthy Puppies and Kittens”. Heather Harper-Troje, who worked for PETA’s Community Animal Project, has filed an affidavit alleging the PETA program had a sickening obsession with death driven by PETA president and co-founder Ingrid Newkirk.
Harper-Troje's allegations include:
· “While employed at PETA, my primary responsibilities included gaining possession of as many cats and dogs and possible, almost all of which were euthanized.”
· “Ingrid Newkirk was in charge of the Community Animal Project and Ingrid became my supervisor.”
· “[Newkirk] said that an effort to adopt out an animal was a waste of PETA’s money and effort.”
· “I was specifically told by my supervisors at PETA to tell people that we would find good homes for the dogs and cats, even though we knew the animals would be euthanized.”
