PETA Distributes Explicit Comic Books at Valley School

The images showed diseased cows and calves being taken away from their mothers.

Graphic images, both in cartoon form and photographs, of cows raised for food angered some parents at the Calabash Charter School in Woodland Hills.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals passed out the literature last week, according to KTLA News. The effort was reportedly coordinated by a parent at the school.

PETA officials told KTLA they think nothing wrong with distributing the explicit images to school children, even as young as kindergartners.

Were you there Quincy? Then you and I are hearing different things from people who were there. Not sure who "this man" is you are referring to or if he was the same presenter at Calabash. In any case, should the literature have been given to parents, you and I would not be posting on this forum.

PETA is vindictive, ruthless and uncaring about who the hurt in getting their agenda across. I worked circus my life and they have scared children, handed out to children what looked like comic books only to find out they were horrific lying pictures of the circus. These people need to be stopped in going after innocent, unsuspecting, vunerable children. They stoop to any lows, they don't care.

I met a man a couple of weeks ago in the process of going vegan and has joint custody of his 5 year old son with his non vegan ex . One day she gave he boy a hamburger and he asked her what it was and she said meat and he asked , where does it come from ? She said , from a cow . He pushed it back and told her he will not eat anything from an animal . His dad didn't really talk to him about animal rights just fed him plant based food when he was there ( He is actually eating plant based for his health ) . You don't have to tell kids much or show them graphic pictures ( not that they did ) just give them the info in a gentle way and they figure it out pretty fast . That is what the parents are really worried about . They don't want their children to question their choices and expose them as hypocrites . When's the last time you heard a parent threaten a lawsuit because their kid saw a deer strapped to the hood of a car or a side of beef or pigs feet etc in the butcher shop . We should sue "Boars Head" for having a decapitated pigs head as their logo and forcing us and our kids to see it everywhere .

There were no slaughter pictures. The real abuse is when the parents keep lying to their kids about what really happens in meat and dairy industry. If you have a problem showing them the horrors of the industry, then why are you forcing them into their bodies? Any kid who sees the horrors of what happens to animals, is not going to willingwillingly eat or drink them. Regarding PETA. People always look for someone to blame. Don't you know that they have become the #1 enemy of the $290 Billion Dollars a year industry that is meat and dairy? Don't you know that they hire professional lobby groups to run negative campaigns against them? All I hear these days is that PETA kills 2000 animals a year, when the bith kill and no kill shelters kill Tens of millions every year. Meat and dairy industry's big money at work.

You should be ashamed of yourselves for complaining about the truth being taught to your children. If the pamphlets were handed out to the parents, would they have talked to their children and told them where their food comes from, i think not. Many children will grow up wishing they had learned the truth when they were young so they could make their own choice. It is our duty to tell our children the truth for their health as well as the welfare of our animals. I wish i could have had the opportunity to learn where my food came from at a young age but i was denied the right to make this choice for myself. Parents think their doing the right thing by keeping the truth from their children, protecting them but in the long run, they've denied them the right to make an important personal decision. Do you think it's unhealthy to eat a plant based diet? If so, you may want to do some research because you couldn't be more wrong.
