Pedro Vs PETA?

Pedro Martinez

Seems Mets starting pitcher Pedro Martinez is in trouble with PETA. Tuesday a video showed up on You Tube with the Martinez and Juan Marichal attending a cockfight, back home in the Dominican Republic. Martinez released this statement..

“I understand that people are upset, but that is part of our Dominican culture and is legal in the Dominican Republic,” Martinez said in a statement Thursday. “I was invited by my idol, Juan Marichal, to attend the event as a spectator, not as a participant.”

The New York Mets released a statement saying while they do not condone crulity to animals, they do understand that cockfighting is part of the Dominican culture.. PETA sent The Mets a nice letter.. and even brought up Michael Vick’s case.. *shakes head*

Are you serious PETA??

1. Dogfighting is illegal in the United States

2. Michael Vick was OPERATING a dogfighting ring..

3. Michael Vick killed dogs that did not perform up to his standards..

4. Cockfighting is legal in the Dominican Republic

5. Pedro was only there as a spectator..

6. Pedro did not kill anything, except his time..

7. Most of the time in a cockfight, the fight will result in a draw.. the Rooster LIVES to fight another day!

PETA should really buy a clue on this one!

  2. Hmmm….can’t imagine what Sunday dinner has to do with dog fighting.

  3. because dogs are cute means they can’t be killed for amusement… if they aren’t cute, all is fair game. Bulls aren’t cute, so bull fighting is ok.

    PETA needs to get some common sense! They are all about equal rights for animals… well, we as a people won’t stand for affluent and cute humans being mistreated, but will gloss over it for the poor and ugly. Why should it be different for animals?!?

    “Hundreds of people die in bomb blast in Ir…”

    “THERE IS BREAKING NEWS ON THE NANCY HOLLOWAY CASE!!! Our top investigative reporter is here to bring us the report:”
    “Thanks Wolf… apparently Nancy Holloway’s mother is upset her daughter was killed 3 years ago and has called a press conference for 3 PM… We’re sending it back to the ‘Panic Room’ for expert analysis on this tragic murder.”
