But what really happened with Jericho? After Cecil the lion was killed, I heard that Jericho (who is also a lion) was killed, then I heard it wasn’t him. But who was it? Is Jericho alive?March 31, 2017 7:01 pm at 7:01 pm #1248130DovidBTParticipant
What I found interesting about the “Cecil incident” news coverage was that no one asked how a dentist was willing and able to pay $50000 for one (1) lion skin, which didn’t even include his other safari expenses. And people wonder why affordable health care is an issue. 🙂April 1, 2017 8:53 pm at 8:53 pm #1248141Avi KParticipant
PETA’s letter to Yasser Arafat
February 3, 2003
Yasser Arafat, President
Palestinian National Authority
Ramallah, West Bank

I am writing from an organization dedicated to fighting animal abuse around the world. We have received many calls and letters from people shocked at the bombing in Jerusalem on January 26 in which a donkey, laden with explosives, was intentionally blown up.
All nations behave abominably in many ways when they are fighting their enemies, and animals are always caught in the crossfire. The U.S. Army abandoned thousands of loyal service dogs in Vietnam. Al-Qaeda and the British government have both used animals in hideously cruel biological weaponry tests. We watched on television as stray cats in your own compound fled as best they could from the Israeli bulldozers.
Animals claim no nation. They are in perpetual involuntary servitude to all humankind, and although they pose no threat and own no weapons, human beings always win in the undeclared war against them. For animals, there is no Geneva Convention and no peace treaty—just our mercy.
If you have the opportunity, will you please add to your burdens my request that you appeal to all those who listen to you to leave the animals out of this conflict?
We send you sincere wishes of peace.
Very truly yours,
President, PETAOctober 21, 2018 9:39 pm at 9:39 pm #1608148
From Fox News
A lioness at the Indianapolis Zoo fatally attacked on Monday the lion who fathered her three cubs, according to multiple reports.
The lioness, Zuri, was seen holding on to the lion, Nyack, by the neck, suffocating him to death, zoo officials said on Friday.
Zuri and Nyack had been kept together at the zoo for eight years, with no reports of aggression, they noted.
They became parents to three cubs three years ago, and seemed compatible from the time Nyack, who was 10 years old, arrived at the zoo on loan from the San Diego Zoo, according to The Miami Herald.
Zoo employees heard a commotion early Monday, before it opened to the public, and saw Zuri attacking Nyack, with one of their cubs near them.
The workers tried separating the lions, but Zuri continued her hold on Nyack’s neck until he no longer moved, reported The Herald.
The zoo announced Nyack’s death on its Facebook page on Friday.
“We don’t know what the precursor to the fight was,” the zoo curator, David Hagen said, according to WIBC. “They had been together for eight years and during that time they had done really well together.”
He said that the workers are upset about the loss.
“He was a friendly, playful lion.”
Nyack will be cremated. A necropsy showed the cause of death was suffocation.
Will PETA say that the lioness should be charged with domestic violence/murder?October 22, 2018 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm #1608626
No, because they’re okay with killing animals as long as you don’t benefit from it.October 24, 2018 10:39 am at 10:39 am #1610174
No, because they’re okay with killing animals as long as you don’t benefit from it.
They want the same rights for animals that people have
So if an animal killed another animal (especially a husband and wife) it should be no different than one human killing another human
Animals have rights too and that lion isn’t having his rights met (even if he’s dead)October 24, 2018 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #1610322
They’ve never complained about straight up murder, human or animal. They euthanize most of the animals in their “shelters”.October 25, 2018 8:11 am at 8:11 am #1610535

You know the headline is about Cecil the lion (which peta calls murder)October 25, 2018 9:44 am at 9:44 am #1610555
It’s only murder because trophy hunters keep the body.October 25, 2018 10:22 am at 10:22 am #1610638
It’s only murder because trophy hunters keep the body.
You make no sense
So if they left the body to decompose it wouldn’t be murder for peta?October 25, 2018 2:14 pm at 2:14 pm #1610763
PETA makes no sense.October 25, 2018 2:27 pm at 2:27 pm #1611086
PETA makes no sense.
Thank you, therefore my question was
Will PETA say that the lioness should be charged with domestic violence/murder?October 25, 2018 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm #1611115
They make no sense, but they do have a pattern:
Animals are assur b’hanaa, but only to humans and their animal companions
No lives matter, but this is not something to say explicitly
Animals are better off dead than employed by humans, even in humane conditions
A human may have an animal companion, but they must be equals
