SLAUGHTERVILLE, Okla. - Residents of this central Oklahoma community have a beef over an animal rights group's attempt to raise awareness of animal abuse.I... hold on.
Slaughterville administrator Marsha Blair received a letter from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, urging the town to change its name from Slaughterville to Veggieville.
Okay, now that I've mostly stopped laughing... I've often wondered if PETA is really a front organization meant to discredit animal rights supporters. Nobody could do a better job than they're doing on their own.
