Ewe Must Be Joking: PETA is Investigating a Farmer for Verbally Abusing Sheep

PETA continues to become more and more of a laughingstock. This time, they’ve caused a big stink because an Australian farmer has committed the unthinkable crime of “verbally abusing” his sheep.

The Times says that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals lodged a complaint against Ken Turner after an employee was filmed by an “undercover operative” using bad language in front of his sheep.

Mr Turner said: “The allegation was that bad language was used by an employee on the property in front of the sheep and that they could have been offended by the use of bad language.”

PETA submitted the complaint to Australia’s RSPCA, who confirmed they had investigated. The case collapsed, however, after it became clear the footage would not be legally admissible.

The farmer said he did not know if the sheep had their feelings hurt by the incident: “I still haven’t had a sheep come to me [to complain]. They didn’t even look offended to me after they were shorn.”

So even though no actual abuse was observed, PETA wasted a lot of time and money by submitting a complaint because they think that this farmer was being “mean”. It’s funny — sheep aren’t capable of rational thought, but even the sheep in this case are probably looking at the PETA loons and wondering what their problem is.
