Shocking Video Shows Puppy Thrown From Cliff

A disturbing video making its way to millions of people online and in the news shows a soldier tossing what appears to be a yelping puppy end-over-end off a cliff in Iraq.

While we thank the Marine Corps Base Hawaii (MCBH) for launching a full investigation into this apparent act of extreme animal abuse, we want to make sure that the punishment reflects the serious nature of this violent act. The MCBH should require that the suspects appear before a court-martial and should seek the most severe penalties under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, including discharge from the Corps, for the suspects if they are convicted. The U.S. Marine Corps should also establish a zero-tolerance policy for cruelty to animals, which would help ensure that this is the last time that the U.S. will suspect any of its brave men and women of abusing a defenseless animal during their service to America.

Click here to see the letter that PETA’s Emergency Response Division sent to the commanding officer at MCBH. Please sign below to add your name in support of investigating and punishing those involved to the fullest extent of the law.

Sign This Petition:

Cruelty to animals should have no place in the Marine Corps. The recent video footage of a soldier apparently throwing a puppy off a cliff is disturbing both because the act is so cruel and because the act apparently violates the Marines’ code of conduct. If those involved are brought to justice and convicted, the most severe penalties should be sought, including discharge from the Corps.

Save Seals From Slaughter

Once again, defying international opposition and all standards of human decency, the Canadian government is sanctioning the mass killing of helpless baby harp seals.

Donate NowIn the weeks ahead, hundreds of thousands of
these animals will be beaten and stabbed with sharp hooks and sometimes even skinned alive
—all so that someone can put on a coat, a collar, or cuffs made with real baby-seal fur.

PETA and caring people like you are fighting relentlessly to protect these animals. We must pressure the Canadian government to listen to the pleas of millions of people around the world who want this annual slaughter to stop. This year, seals need your help in raising an international outcry to help end the bloody hunt. Please take two important actions right now:

    1. Sign PETA’s worldwide petition to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper demanding a permanent end to the annual slaughter of seals.

    2. Make an online donation to PETA to help us win the global fight to stop the abuse of seals and other animals for their fur. Your generous gift will help us take on the fur industry—designers, retailers, and consumers—as only PETA can.

Even in an industry known for its cruelty, Canada’s annual seal hunt—the largest slaughter of marine animals on the planet—stands alone for its violence and utter lack of compassion or mercy.

Hundreds of thousands of harp seals will be killed in a matter of weeks. Most of them will be less than 3 months old, and many will still be in their first weeks of life. The animals are so young and innocent that they will lie on the ice as their attackers approach. Even if they know that they should flee, their motor skills aren’t yet developed enough to do so. They have no chance of escaping to the safety of the water.

The carnage begins as the seals have their heads bashed in with clubs. Still conscious, they will be dragged across the ice with boat hooks. Then these sensitive, intelligent animals will be skinned, sometimes while they are still alive. The sealers will take their fur but leave the seals’ bodies on the ice to rot.

Someday soon, Canada will look back on its seal hunt with shame. But until that day comes, it is up to caring people like you and me to come to the defense of these gentle animals.

By signing the petition and making a generous donation online right now, you can help us bring international condemnation to the Canadian prime minister’s doorstep—a critical step in ending these atrocities.

Thank you for your unwavering commitment to these animals.

Very truly yours,
Ingrid E. Newkirk, President

P.S. Help stop the slaughter of baby seals. Sign PETA’s global petition and make as generous a donation as you can afford so that we can show Canadian Prime Minister Harper that the world will not tolerate the mass slaughter of baby seals. Together, we can stand up for the young harp seals who still swim in the waters off Canada’s coast.

Narrator: Joaquin Phoenix
Music: Moby
Producer: Shaun Monson
Running time: 1 h 35:28 min

    Earthlings is a feature length documentary about humanity’s absolute dependence on animals (for pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and scientific research) but also illustrates our complete disrespect for these so-called “non-human providers.” The film is narrated by Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix (Gladiator) and features music by the critically acclaimed platinum artist Moby.

    With an in-depth study into pet stores, puppy mills and animals shelters, as well as factory farms, the leather and fur trades, sports and entertainment industries, and finally the medical and scientific profession, Earthlings uses hidden cameras and never before seen footage to chronicle the day-to-day practices of some of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit. Powerful, informative and thought-provoking, Earthlings is by far the most comprehensive documentary ever produced on the correlation between nature, animals, and human economic interests. There are many worthy animal rights films available, but this one transcends the setting. Earthlings cries to be seen. Highly recommended!

    Dita Von Teese’s Sexy ABC Ad

    Dita Von Teese Launches PETA’s ABC Campaign With Sexy New Ad

    Dita knows her ABCs

    Dita Von Teese is the definition of sexy. She is a spokesmodel for the MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam campaign and the face of the holiday catalog for Frederick’s of Hollywood, performs live burlesque shows, and has graced the cover of magazines around the world, including Playboy, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar. Now Dita is combining her sex appeal with her compassion for animals to launch PETA’s new ABC campaign.

    What does ABC stand for? Animal birth control, of course! PETA’s new ABC campaign tackles the issue of companion animal overpopulation and urges people to do their part by taking simple steps to help end this crisis.

    Dita knows her ABCs and just how important animal birth control is. Every year, nearly 4 million dogs and cats are put to death in the U.S. because there are not enough good homes for them. Until we all do our part to put an end to this cycle, euthanasia will remain a tragic necessity.

    In her ad, Dita urges fans to “bone up” on their ABCs and, if they are considering adding a dog or a cat to the family, to adopt from a local animal shelter and be sure to get their new family member spayed or neutered.

    Watch behind-the-scenes footage from Dita’s photo shoot and her exclusive interview with PETA.
