PETA, the radical left-wing animal-rights organization, trashed the late Steve Irwin on Friday, the same day the beloved zookeeper and conservationist, known by nickname “The Crocodile Hunter,” would have turned 57.
So when PETA attacked Irwin — who was honored by Google in the daily “Google Doodle” — the internet once again seized on PETA.
#SteveIrwin was killed while harassing a ray; he dangled his baby while feeding a crocodile & wrestled wild animals who were minding their own business. Today’s #GoogleDoodle sends a dangerous, fawning message. Wild animals are entitled to be left alone in their natural habitats. https://t.co/9JfJiBhGLw

By Saturday, more than 60,000 people had responded to PETA — the vast majority of which bashed the radical organization for pointlessly attacking Irwin.
I supported @peta with a fixed amount of money every month.
That was until I read this tweet.

There have been few people who have done more for wildlife conservation and education than the Irwin family. You owe them an apology.

Next are you gonna target Bob Ross for not using vegan-safe paint?
