PETA Protesters Arrested After Manure Dump

The usual gang of idiots at PETA is having a cow over the World Bank's agricultural loan programs that support cattle raising in developing nations.

Stay tuned to GCN as the main demonstrations heat up throughout the weekend, leading up to Monday's showdown demonstration.

Cowing The World Bank For Promoting Farming

Cow-clad zealots from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) promise to dump a "smelly deposit" by the World Bank because they object to bank policies that support animal agricultural development in Third World countries. As the Daily Oklahoman said in an anti-PETA editorial a few days ago: "PETA just keeps tripping over itself…[T]he length to which it goes to promote vegetarianism trivializes concerns" for animals and humans.

Well Done Research

A new study from the University of California Irvine College of Medicine dispels any link between breast cancer and the consumption of well-done meats. "No matter how the food was prepared -- blackened, barbecued, grilled or pan-fried -- red meat didn't increase the risk and white meat actually seemed to offer protection against breast cancer," said Dr. Ralph Delfino, who co-led the research team.

Sinking To A New Low

On the heels of their controversial "Got beer?" campaign, PETA has produced an anti-dairy parody of the milk-carton campaign to find missing children.
