AZBD Note: PETA once again shows it is a leftist organization that does not give a damn about animals. Mexico does not care about animals that are protected by the Endangered Species Act here in the US. An animal that is protected here immediately becomes fair game for hunters or farmers to kill in Mexico. Our Southern border has a few different wildlife refuges and a wall would go a long way to helping protect the animals in those refuges.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is weighing in on the proposed wall on the U.S. border with Mexico, claiming it would be “death-inducing” for a number of species.
The animal rights group tells its followers that if the wall does go up, it hopes to decorate it with photos of the creatures that will be harmed, saying:
PETA opposes a border wall because it spells certain death by starvation and thirst and the end of access to foraging and nesting ground—as well as blocking the migratory paths—for millions of animals who won’t be able to scale it, fly over it, or burrow under it. But in case the wall goes up, PETA is inviting caring people to send us artwork encouraging compassion for wildlife, and we’ll apply to place it on this death-inducing barrier.
Animals have nothing to do with human immigration issues, yet they’re often victims of such political conflicts.
Even the conservative National Wildlife Federation called the wall “one of the biggest potential ecological disasters of our time.”
