PETA 'miffed', 'condemns' Obama fly 'execution'

According to news sources around the web, a miffed PETA is condemning President Obama for swatting and killing a fly on camera. Wow, for serious?

Responding to what they call an "
execution", PETA said of Obama, "He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being, and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act… we believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals." (Reuters)

To save more flies from being killed by the President, PETA "sent Obama a device that traps a fly so it can then be released outside."

Of all the battles to pick, Pound360 wonders why PETA chose this one. Then again, here we are blogging about it, and look at all the press.

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
