I’ve said this countless times before and i will say it again…i’m 100% behind anyone who campaigns against animal cruelty, but when PETA does sh*t like this i’m convinced it does more harm than good.
In light of the recent shark attack in Fish Hoek this latest sensational attempt at drawing attention to animal rights is even more relevant.
Look at this billboard the PETArds wanna erect.
This has nothing to do with the recent attack in Cape Town, but rather with an incident in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Anna Maria Island where a man was bitten by a bull shark.
“A man who was reportedly bitten by a 9-foot bull shark while fishing off of the coast of Anna Maria Island on Saturday is now the target of a vicious outdoor advertising campaign on bus benches and billboards in and around Manatee County.
As the friends who helped save his life were interviewed on national television and C.J. Wickersham was recovering after getting 700 to 800 stitches in his leg at Bayfront Medical Center, PETA was completing the design of its anti-fishing campaign featuring a shark swimming with a bloody human leg in its mouth.

Come now PETA. You’re better than this.
