The group that created and runs the website http://www.petakillsanimals.com/ is the Center for Consumer Freedom. There’s something you should know about the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF):
- In 1995, Philip Morris created the Guest Choice Network. It’s a front group that was proposed by Rick Berman in a letter to a Philip Morris executive. Here’s the letter.
- In January, 2002, the Guest Choice Network renamed itself the Center for Consumer Freedom. Rick Berman is still in charge.
- Philip Morris has been exposed for its involvement in illegal cigarette smuggling, including smuggling into Iraq in violation of United Nations sanctions. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says cigarette smuggling funnels millions of dollars to groups like Al Qaeda [See Washington Post, ""Cigarette Smuggling Linked to Terrorism" and the UK Telegraph, "US tobacco companies face claims of smuggling to Iraq," and the six-month investigation by PBS and NOW with Bill Moyers.]

The CCF regularly smears animal rights organizations and campaigns. From sourcewatch:
The Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) (formerly called the “Guest Choice Network”) is a front group for the restaurant, alcohol and tobacco industries. It runs media campaigns which oppose the efforts of scientists, doctors, health advocates, environmentalists and groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving, calling them “the Nanny Culture — the growing fraternity of food cops, health care enforcers, anti-meat activists, and meddling bureaucrats who ‘know what’s best for you.’ ”
Over 40 percent of the group’s 2005 expenditure was paid to Rick Berman‘s PR company, Berman & Co. for “management services.  As part of its operations CCF runs a series of attack websites, including “consumerfreedom.com, activistcash.com, cspiscam.com, animal-scam.com, fishscam.com, obesitymyths.com, physiciansscam.com [and] petalkillsanimals.com”.

While it’s true that PETA probably shouldn’t do hands-on animal rescue or shelter work, the CCF, through its involvement in cigarette smuggling, as well as its promotion of unhealthy lifestyles like cigarette smoking and eating fast food, ultimately kills people.
