Free Samples from Peta | Free Stuff Gone Too Far?

We recently read about yet another free sample going around from Peta.  This free Canada sample is against probably going a bit too far.  They are calling this free sample sticker an “Olympic Shame”.  It doesn’t seem to put out a logo against the Canada’s Winter Olympics just because some Seal Clubbers are killing seals.  Sure some might be Canadian, but should they offer a free sample like this?  As they write on the site “We need your help to stop the Canadian seal slaughter. Last year alone, more than 200,000 seals were slaughtered in the largest massacre of marine mammals on the planet.”

What do you think? Should we get this free sample for Canada and support Peta? Get the free sample because it will cost Peta money (as a way of protest), or just pass on this free sample?  Comment below!

    I am not looking to start a verbal war, however you asked for comments…………..

    I think PETA goes too far in how they get their message out. I am very much in favour of treating animals properly and ethically. I am not in favour of clubbing baby seals, however I do believe there has to be a way to control certain animal populations (IMHO)
    Sometimes support groups get a little overzealous… in my humble opinion. I wont be requesting the sample, even if it does cost them money.

  2. Connie says:

    I do not condone any cruelty to animals however tell Peta thsi has nothing to do with the Olympics .

    I will not request the free stickers and I will not support Peta financially ever again.

  3. Dave says:

    I’ve requested stuff from peta before, just to cost them money. Thanks for the link! Now if someone could provise a link to cost those Sea shephard idiots some money. :)

  4. Becky says:

    You guys are ignorant…. Everyone just ignores the fact that animals are tortured and killed by the second and I commend PETA for using extreme tactics to get people’s attention. I think you are wasting the money that should be going to help poor defenseless animals. Humans are greedy and ignorant and I think PETA is the only group willing to put their necks on the line to help save and protect the beautiful creatures that we take advantage of. Who else cares that the chicken or cow you are eating for dinner was put through unspeakable cruelty just so you could eat. I think you should stop posting free PETA stuff on here because idiots (like Dave) order it just because it’s free and don’t think or care about the consequences.

  5. Joanie says:

    Maggie and Dave say it all……I’m ‘one of those’ that love animals more than people but PETA is so over-zealous they cause bad publicity for themselves. Maybe with their EXTREME tactics to upset us humans is their way of bringing attention to their cause but GIVE ME A BREAK! “damn- where did I put my poison darts….there’s a PETA member lurking out-side because I happen to put my 120 pound dog on a chocker chain. I must retaliate and over-react in order to cause even more upset & sadness. (P.S. my dog happens to be happier than a pig in shit.”…..OOPS! Pigs in shit?….here we go again. -J-

  6. Joanie says:

    I forgot to answer the question! My opinion is NO! DO NOT SUPPORT PETA in ANY way! Discussing this issue is also exactly what they want! Controversy and publicity. Let’s not give these idiots a second glance.

  7. david says:

    this ad is so wrong .the seal industry has not been allowed to club any seals ,,IT HAS BEEN AGAINST THE LAWS FOR A LONG TIME TO KILL BABY SEALS ..

  8. SantaJoe says:

    I agree with Maggie I think they should be entitled to their opinions.But they do go to far sometimes,and I don’t think we need to waste their money for them, they are trying to say that it is not humane to slaughter baby seals in this manner.

  9. Becky says:

    Apparently my opinion wasn’t shared by the person who manages the comments feed…. I’m glad you ask for opinions and then take the comments off that you don’t like.

  10. joni says:

    I mostly agree with Santa Joe.
    I have seen videos and newsreels of people clubbing little innocent baby seals mercilessly to death. How could anyone not feel sorry for these poor little creatures, all covered with blood, being beaten viciously to death. It is very upsetting, regardless of one’s opinion.
    I do not see why they choose to connect this issue to the Olympics though.

  11. Uncle Ted says:

    I do not agree with the clubbing method for killing “baby” seals, although there is a market for the finished product. I am a PETA member, but I do not understand the connection to the Olympics. Is it just to embarrass our Country in front of the World?? Why would the Olympic Committee agree to this, especially when the visiting countries allow many more, and much more violent and cruel atrocities to happen to animals in their homelands?
    In closing, the Olympics do not have an event for clubbing anything to death, so what’s the connection?

  12. Jakob says:

    Waste money for peta in protest? Seriously? That’s disgraceful. These seals are skinned for fur. Peta’s trying to raise awareness and get the Vancouver Olympic Organizing Committee to help influence an end to the slaughter.

  13. Sheila says:

    This comment is for Becky! You should look before accusing! And calling people names is not what leaving a comment is supposed to be for,
    I think you owe whoever posts the comments an apology

  14. Dave says:

    Dear Becky,

    In your honor I forwarded the peta link to all my like-minded friends in my address book. Several have already ordered the samples, and let me know they’ve forwrded the link further. Maybe it’ll go viral, all thanks to you!. Idiots can be dangerous, Becky. :P :D

  15. Sharon says:

    I had sent away for a number of Peta’s freebies. But when I received them and had a good look at them I had to throw them out for fear that my grandchildren would see them,even though they were targeted for children. I have no intention of scaring them with off-color “stickers” and “activity books.” Instead I choose to teach them to be loving and kind to animals. Not frighten them with horor stories they can’t possibly comprehend. My children and grandchildren have eaten chickens, turkeys, beef and pork that was raised on a farm, where the animals were not tortured or mistreated and I don’t want them to think that to eat meat means you must be an animal abuser.
    Thank you.

  16. Heidi says:

    I’m totally in agreeance with Jakob. Ordering the samples just to waste PETA’s money IS disgraceful.
    Sure, their cruelty advertising may go too far, at least in some people’s minds, but they DO help to protect animals and stop cruelty. Overall, their objective is commendable.
    As for those who are confused about the link to the Olympics, here’s the low-down. There IS NO DIRECT CONNECTION TO THE OLYMPICS. The ONLY reason PETA wants to link the seal slaughter to the Olympics is to get their message across to the most people possible. We can all agree that the Olympics are a huge event that are largely about countries banding together to accomplish something great. All eyes and ears across the world will be focused on the Olympics, as usual, and PETA just wants to take advantage of that huge audience. That’s it. Really, it’s no different than VISA being the official credit card of the games. Same idea, VISA wanted advertising, and what better way than with a world audience. Lots of companies would give their top CEOs away to be able to be associated with the games. So why it is so awful that PETA wants the same thing? At least they want in for a cause and to raise awareness, not just to advertise their product to make money. I’m not for OR against PETA in this endeavor, and everyone IS entitled to their own opinions. However, I don’t think this issue is anywhere near as big a deal as some are making it out to be.

  17. admin says:

    Wow thank you all for all of your great comments!!

  18. Becky says:

    Dave, I want to thank you for forwarding the link to so many people. Maybe in all the forwarding, someone will look at it and see the good that PETA is doing. They couldn’t do it without dedicated people such as yourself. And Sheila, thank you for taking the time to write to me. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I just don’t happen to care what yours is. Have a great day everyone!

  19. Miss says:

    @ Becky
    Saying this “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I just don’t happen to care what yours is.”
    Makes you sound like a child. Please don’t lower yourself like that. I think you what you say is strong and great.. but saying things that like make you sound ignorant.

  20. Christine says:

    I would like to know why is it that when PETA protestors are protesting about how wrong it is to wear fur, they are not wearing anything, especially the girls, theyre completely naked. of course the only thing covering them up is the signs they hold in front of themselves. why cant they put something on. not every piece of clothing is made of fur. 9 times out of 10 most clothing is made of cotton. whatever, i dont get it. to each their own i guess, but PETA can go overboard sometimes.

  21. Joanie says:

    eeek! Becky scares me. Perhaps a valium (or 2) may help? By the way…..’idiots’ like Dave are not ordering Peta’s stuff because IT’S FREE. Maybe you should read the messages and try to understand other peoples points of view. cheers!

  22. Becky says:

    Joanie, maybe you need to re-read what Dave said…. he specifically said he orders the free stuff just to cost PETA money. I do understand other people’s points of view, and I know they can’t help it if they are uninformed about certain issues, but wasting a companies money just because you don’t agree with their tactics is just plain idiotic – and that’s MY point of view.

  23. Joanie says:

    (Becky)- WOW. (Sheila)- your comment to Becky was ‘right on’ but sadly she seems to be the type of person who’d say,”my way or the highway!”. A total waste of our valuable breath. Enough already! I’m off to walk my dog and enjoy this fabulous day!

  24. Dave says:

    So, is this one of the most commented on sample offerings?


    Still waiting for someone to let me know how to cost Sea Shephard some money. Can’t find a thing on their website. :(

  25. Dave says:

    And Becky, as you state, I order the stuff specifically to cost them money. But what motive do you attribute to me doing that?

    Radical animal rights groups, such as PETA, Sea Shepherd and others have caused real harm to people I personally know. I live on the East Coast, and spent many years in Nunavut and Nunavik. My wife is Inuit. The vilification of seal harvesters off Newfoundland has destroyed people’s livelihoods, both on the East coast and in the north. The Inuit culture suffered dramatically from the collapse of the fur industry. I invite you to look at the rates of violence, alcohol and drug abuse and suicide in the north, and ask yourself if maybe these people no longer being able to support themselves, living in poverty dependant on welfare from south maybe has something to do with their social problems. Real people have died, Becky, real people continue to suffer. So, my taking a dollar or two out of their coffers lessens their ability a little bit to destroy people”s lives. It’s a small protest against the great harm they’ve done. I don’t delude myself into thinking I’ve made much of a difference, but every little bit helps.

    But hey, I’m just an idiot. Right Becky?

  26. Charlotte says:

    @ Miss & Becky

    I thought what Becky said was pretty funny. Don’t get so offended over such childish things, you’re being almost as bad as Diana Ross.
    Poor Seals…

  27. trixxy says:

    Wow, I have never seen so much controversy! Dave- That culture has suffered from these problems for a much longer time, I know, as I too am native & your being pretty simple in the blame game. What I haven’t heard anyone comment on or suggest is anything about the ‘other side- why isn’t anybody protesting against who & what they(Peta) stand for? Unnecessary & painful lab testing, illegal trapping or hunting, etc? They are like any other group, you don’t have to agree or even like EVERYTHING they stand for or do, but really, instead of being childish, (heehee, i’m gonna order free stuff) why don’t you put your energy into something that would really make a difference? Whether it is animal welfare, children’s rights, or better yet, stop acting like most Canadians, break off the yoke of being a ‘sheeple’, & get involved in the political landscape where (hopefully) you can make a difference about something that really matters to you. Maybe such as social welfare, Dave.

  28. trixxy says:

    I would like to make one more comment; as for the Olympic venue? C’mon, it is going to be (hopefully) one of the largest public venues we are going to see for a long time- why shouldn’t Peta take advantage of this large social gathering to protest? Others are. Compassion towards animals is essentially bound up with goodness of character. Whomever is cruel to them, cannot be good to man!

  29. Natasha says:

    You can never go too far to help animals. They have feelings. Why is it so hard for people to think about other rather than themselves 24/7???
    Sad world.
