"N.C. counties say PETA euthanizes animals" [LINK]

Animal shelters from two counties in North Carolina severed relationships with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals after it was discovered most of the animals the group took with the stated intention of finding permanent homes were instead euthanized. This came to light after two PETA members were caught dumping dead animals in a local shopping center's garbage containers. PETA's website later trumpeted its efforts to "solve the animal overpopulation in North Carolina."

In the past, PETA was found to have euthanized animals it had ostensibly rescued from a research facility, because they lacked the resources to keep them. This, despite a hefty $20 million budget.
