PETA's Hypocrisy: Where's the Outrage?

After the tragic death of Eight Belles following this year's Kentucky Derby, PETA went on their reactionary, media-clamoring crusade to persecute participants, observers and fans of the sport of kings.

True to their word, the animal lovers took to picketing yesterday's Preakness Stakes at Pimlico in Baltimore.

What saddens and sickens me, though, is that while they advocate for the "ethical" treatment of race horses, they ignore the blatant unethical treatment of another animal - the party animal - happening right before their eyes.

PETA owes it to poor Steve Scrimer (above), to write letters, sound the alarm and get on their proverbial horses in championing against the physical hardships drunk a-holes face on the infield.

After all, people are animals too.

I couldn't agree more, it's time to protest PETA and their blatant disregard of party animals every where. They probably wear party animal coats.

You guys are nuts - I'm the guy running across those porta johns, and it was AWESOME. That run had nothing to do with horses so don't compare that run to any of your " animal rights protests"--I did it for fun and entertainment. Just as if boxers participate in getting their asses kicked--I did this instead. Relax and laugh...and leave stuff like this out of your criticism for animal rights
