We visited the headquarters of PETA USA to meet it's founder and tour de force, Ingrid Newkirk. We spoke about euthanasia, Sea World, veganism, the history of PETA and more. Since it was founded, PETA has exposed horrific animal abuse in laboratories, leading to many firsts, including canceled funding, closed facilities, seizure of animals, and charges filed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. PETA has also closed the largest horse-killing operation in North America, convinced dozens of major designers and hundreds of companies to stop using fur, ended all car-crash tests on animals, cleaned up wretched animal pounds, helped schools switch to alternatives to dissection, and provided millions of people with information on vegetarianism, companion animal care, and countless other issues. PETA's style of activism is often challenged, but there is no doubt PETA has led the way for real changes in animal rights. Find out more about PETA and their work https://www.peta.org How does
