Misleading PETA Advert

Well done Bill Galli – for bringing this misleading PETA advert to our attention!
A major part of the TGA’s task is to get people in the general public to understand just WHAT makes the animal rightists “tick”.
As you can see from this PETA advert, they are putting out the story that a person’s woolly coat, or woolly jersey, results in a dead lamb carcass.
Sheep (and lambs, too, it seems) are carefully sheared of their wool after which they go outside to graze with all their friends in the paddock…. until months later they brought inside again to be sheared again. Its the same as a man having a haircut once a month.
So why does PETA do this?
Why do they tell a blatant lie like this. One thing is for sure, they are not interested in the lamb!
What they are interested in doing is creating an emotional spectacle that will be acceptable by the uninformed First World’s City Slickers – who know nothing about nature or agriculture – and they then solicit funds from these very gullible people, ostensibly, to save the farmer’s lambs from a terrible death.
So when you read about how the animal rightist NGOs are trying to “save the African elephant from extinction” – or the rhino – when they are not anywhere near facing extinction – and when you are asked for a donation to help them to do this (to save the elephant) – please give them a piece of your mind. And use this PETA advertisement as proof of how they go about duping the general public.
We will never achieve “best practice” wildlife management – or proper domestic animal husbandry – as long as the general public is taken in by lies contained in the animal rights propaganda.
It is our duty to tell the public “The Truth”.

I am NOT a ‘trophy hunter’ - and never have been. I am not involved in the trophy hunting safari business. I am also not a game rancher. But I have ‘administratively controlled’ professional hunters and safari outfitters in my capacity as a government game warden. I am an 80 year old ex-game warden with 60 years of continuous experience in hands-on wildlife management, and national park management, in Africa (1959 to 2019). In breakdown, I have 24 years experience in the management of national parks in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe - and in the management of the wild animal populations that lived inside those national parks; one year as the Chief Nature Conservation of the Ciskei in South Africa; three years as Director of the Bophuthatswana National Parks Board in South Africa; and I worked for three years as a professional hunter in the South African Great Karoo (taking foreign hunters on quests for plains game trophies). I discovered, however, that professional hunting was not my forte. I worked as an investigative wildlife journalist for 30 years in South Africa. I have written fifteen books and hundreds of magazine articles on the subject of wildlife management and big game hunting in Africa. Five of my books are university-level text books on wildlife management. I am a university-trained ecologist; was a member of the Institute of Biology (London) for 20 years; and was a registered chartered biologist for the European Union for 20 years. I have VAST experience in the “management hunting” of elephants, buffaloes, lions, leopards and hippos (as part of my official national park work in the control of problem animals); and I pioneered the capture of black rhino in Zimbabwe’s Zambezi Valley (1964 - 1970). My university thesis was entitled: “The Factors Affecting the Survival and Distribution of Black Rhinos in Rhodesia”.

    Hi Ron,
    Please don’t group all us “city slickers” in the same category 🙂
