Pedigree Dogs Don’t Want PETA’s Support

And neither does Jemima Harrison, producer of the documentary Pedigree Dogs Exposed. Hat tip to Pat the Terrierman who wrote an excellent post with quotes from Ms. Harrison and DogMagazine.net:

The makers of Pedigree Dogs Exposed, the BBC documentary film that led to the BBC withdrawing from televising Crufts Dog Show in the UK are furious with PETA for jumping on the film’s bandwagon.

Earlier this week, PETA called for the US networks to stop televising Westminster Dog Show, citing the BBC film as evidence of unacceptable deformity and disease in pedigree dogs.

Pedigree Dogs Exposed was the result of two years’ careful research. The film highlighted serious health and welfare concerns in pedigree dogs that many experts agree need to be addressed urgently. However, the filmmakers have no connection to PETA and are idealogically opposed to PETA’s aims.

“I am horrified that PETA is using the film to further its own, warped agenda,” says Jemima Harrison, of Passionate Productions, which made the film for the BBC. “Our film is about animal welfare, not animal rights.

“PETA’s animal welfare record is appalling. It kills 97 per cent of the dogs that come to its shelters and admits its ultimate aim is to rid the world of what it calls the “domestic enslavement” of dogs as either pets or working dogs.

Because, of course, dying alone in the back of a van is so much better than life as a house pet.

    I’ve heard of the many radical views held by Peta.
    I can’t help but wonder though…if PETA’s members are as true to their cause as they claim, what percentage of their members are vegetarians?
