PETA Lambasts Hunting, Sarah Palin's Alaska

by at . Comments

In a clash of the media-hungry, supremely unintelligent titans, PETA has a bone to pick with Sarah Palin after the most recent episode of her TLC reality show.

A hunting scene, hilariously prefaced by a "Viewer Discretion Advised" warning, aired Sunday on Sarah Palin’s Alaska. In it, the ex-gov bagged a caribou.

Never one to let an opportunity for publicity justice pass, PETA issued a statement condemning the show and the potential White House hopeful starring in it.

PETA vs. Palin

Sarah doesn't go hunting. That implies a chance of failure. Sarah goes KILLING.

Sarah Palin seems to think that resorting to violence and blood and guts may lure people into watching her boring show,” said PETA V.P. Dan Mathews.

“But the ratings remain as dead as the poor animals she shoots.”

Ooh, that one hurts. Sort of inaccurate though, Dan. The show got 3.5 million viewers Sunday, up from 3 million the previous week. On TLC. It's a hit.

Sarah actually hasn't commented (give it an hour). But last weekend on Facebook, she wrote that “unless you’ve never worn leather shoes, sat on a leather couch or eaten a piece of meat, save your condemnation of tonight’s episode."

Here's the clip that has PETA so up in arms ...

Team Sarah or Team PETA?


OMG Peta is so fuckin retarted!! Butt-out they are not doing anything illegal!!


PETA, I love you, especially when you are outrageous. They would have to hold my eyelids open with alligator clips before I would watch the Killa from Wasilla's show. I would like nothing more than to never have to see Sarah Palin's snarky face again. She is a freak show whose draw has gone from curiosity to YAWN .. shut up stupid, and go home. But, c'mon PETA, you didn't have to react. There are many cretins, miscreants, sadists and sociopaths who like hunt, and PETA speaking up against hunting just gives them another excuse to buy a Calvin p1ssing on PETA decal.


Where the hell was PETA when Cheney tried to 'bag' his lawyer?!?!


PeTA needs to pipe down. If they have an issue, it's with the government. Let them work on getting the laws changed and leave the law abiding citizens alone.


As animal "abuses" go peta is way off base here. She legally shot and killed the animal and plans to eat it, then properly dispose of the remains. Wildlife managers control the amount of animals taken each season so as to ensure healthy, stable populations. Interest in recreational hunting helps protect wild lands from developers, passing it down to future generations. No laws were broken and regulated fish and game practice ensure the long-term survival of such creatures. If eating meat repulses you, don't do it. You can survive on a vegetarian/vegan diet. But an animal rights group to single out this of all things is just a shameless publicity stunt and nothing more.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
