PETA Redeploying its Animal Rights Forces to California
Los Angeles , Ca –-(AmmoLand.com)- In what may be a sign of rough economic times, PETA is shifting around forty employees from its Norfolk, Virginia office to Los Angeles.
This move will get the country’s most outrageous animal rights group closer to the wealth of some “bleeding heart” celebrities that have fallen prey to PETA’s rhetoric.
According to Tracy Reiman, PETA’s executive vice president, it will be transferring three divisions to L.A.: campaigns, youth and online marketing. Reiman said it only makes sense to move certain forces to L.A. since the city “defines popular culture and cultivates big personalities.” She went on to praise the work of those divisions and how they “conceive of and carry out those eye and headline-catching, envelope-pushing and just plain quirky actions that have helped put animal rights on the map.”
The divisions being moved make up twenty five percent of PETA’s Virginia staff.
“Most Americans do not buy PETA’s animal rights fanaticism,” said Bud Pidgeon, president of the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance.
“They must feel they have a niche in the glitz and glamour of L.A. We can only hope Californians make this a very bad move for them.”
