Quotes

Ingrid Newkirk, PETA's president, says she's supportive of other people using drones to gain information that may help prevent animal suffering. "If Will Potter uses drones legally to shine a spotlight on factory farming and slaughter practices, we're all in favor of it" she says
..."We are so excited to align with these three groups," says Native Foods co-owner, Andrea McGinty. "We've always admired the work that these groups do, and by working together, we hope to accomplish so much more in the plant-based movement."
...against 'communists' perceived to be 'anti-american', some have dubbed this new attack on activists and environmentalists as 'the green scare. "As Ag-gag becomes law, more and more investigators say they are afraid to talk to journalists about their work" says Will Potter, author of Green Is The New Red .

...man hitting the sheep, which is obviously exceptional and cruel and in many instances would be immediate dismissal, where exactly was the camera? "Did the person know that they were filmed? Were they actually part of the process? There are lots of questions that need to be asked." will also be asking questions as it launches a probe into the PETA allegations
