Hearing date for employees of PETA reset for Aug. 16
By DARREN FREEMAN, The Virginian-Pilot
July 20, 2005



WINTON A court hearing was postponed Tuesday for two PETA employees charged with animal cruelty, illegal disposal of animal carcasses and trespassing after Ahoskie police say they saw dead animals being thrown into a grocery store trash bin June 15.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys asked for more time, and the probable-cause hearing was postponed, Assistant District Attorney Donnie Taylor said. The hearing was rescheduled for Aug. 16.

Investigators were waiting for lab results on chemicals found in a van the two suspects were using when they were arrested and the results to determine the cause of death of one of the animals, Ahoskie police Detective Jeremy Roberts said.

The results came in Monday night for the chemicals found in the van, which was registered to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals , Roberts said.

Roberts and Taylor said they could not comment on the results.

Earlier this month, an analysis of one dead dog determined the animal was healthy at the time of death, and it had a needle mark on one leg, Roberts said. Investigators sent tissue from the dog to a lab to determine the cause of death, he said.

Police began investigating PETA because carcasses wrapped in plastic bags were found at the supermarket site in Ahoskie every Wednesday for four consecutive weeks. At least 80 animals were found .

Officers say that on June 15 they followed a van after it left Bertie Countys animal shelter, staked out the garbage bins and arrested two PETA employees after officers watched them throw away animal carcasses. <snip>

4. Skye....are you a breeder....?

I think I asked you this before, but, if I may, still think repsonsible breeders wouldn't have time to pick on PETA !?! Especially using talking points from the corporate lobbyists! Like the AKC's ugly sister, NAIA ? :groan: Or the Consumer Freedom assholes labelling animal protectionists "terrorists" (thank you post 9-11 marketing schills)

(Generic rant...)
Did PETA f-up? Ooops. Will you bring Bertie County/Ahoskie, NC gas chambers to the table? Bullets to the head, only a nickel? You're a DUer throwing Rovian spin on disposable commodities, er, companion animals, makes me :puke:

I hope PeTA is about "drawing attention to the sickening and profitable animal industries for profit", and yes, I include breeders/animal pimps in that category. Profit, is the bottom line for the worse animal abuses, and if you fight us, you support puppy farms too. Am I right?

Edit: spelling

6. It doesn't seem to me that you have the first clue
as to what PETA is about. But that's typical. :eyes:

3. The cruelty charges will be dropped. The other two may stand.
$15,000 from Consumer Freedom (rabid anti-PETA folks) buys a lot of support in Yadkin County. Interesting...

Here's some reading for you:

Thanks for coming around with your anti-PETA rhetoric again.

7. Shouldn't you be out cropping ears or declawing a cat?
Or are the bribes from CCF paying the bills this month?
