ECHO PARK — PETA never misses an opportunity to promote its animal rights efforts – not even when a car crashed into its Sunset Boulevard offices. An anti-SeaWorld mural by the street artist known as Cache now covers the large gap that was created when an SUV plowed through a wall of glass as the organization was holding a SeaWorld protest planning meeting.

No one was injured but the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals decided to take advantage of the boards that covered up the damage. The mural of an orca and a pair of the artist’s familiar chickens will remain in place until the glass is replaced.

“It’s only fitting that the boards covering the hole in the building have been turned into an anti-SeaWorld mural, courtesy of Los Angeles graffiti legend Cache,” said a PETA statement.

  1. Looks great! Turning lemons into lemonade!

  2. This very professional looking scam is just that – a scam!!!! Organizations like cattle ranchers are behind it! Go to http://www.PETA.org to get the real story. DO NOT SIGN THE PETITIONS – BIG FAT HOAX!

    • NKLA: No-Kill Los Angeles & its Pet Adoption Center are not scams. Some of us believe that healthy adoptable animals should not be euthanized. Peta seems to disagree. I am not anti Peta but I do believe this policy of theirs is wrong. http://nkla.org/

      • Does PETA euthanize healthy animals? As I understand it, their euthanasia program is for animals that have serious health conditions… like how people put their pets to sleep at the vet, if it has cancer or some other painful, debilitating disease.

      • Jocko-
        You’d rather have animals sit in tiny cages for the rest of their lives? I feel sometimes euthanasia is the most humane option.

        Anyone advocating for the rights of companion animals should be trying to close breeders and puppy mills and encouraging widespread spaying and neutering.

        • Yes, anyone advocating for the rights of companion animals should be trying to close breeders and puppy mills and encouraging widespread spaying and neutering.

  3. Lovely mural, hope Peta finds a more permanent place for it when the windows are replaced.

  4. Very disturbing, to say the least. But I’m baffled. The articles didn’t explain the “why”. How does the supposed ethical treatment of animals equate with stealing people’s pets and killing them by the thousands?

    • PeTA says:

      “Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.”
      They evidently equate have a pet with using animals for our entertainment and, consequently, kill HEALTHY pet quality dogs, cats and other animals to prevent the possibility of their being mistreated some time in the future. Some of the very people that claim to protect innocent animals are killing them.

    • Hmm…stealing people’s pets? Documentation from a reputable source please.

  5. @theeastsider.com: Why are my posts and links regarding Nathan Winogard and the No Kill Advocacy Center being taken down?

  6. Damn, so many car crashes on Sunset. Documenting them all and following up with the aftermath would be a blog in and of itself.
