Washington – Please see PETA Vice President Shalin Gala’s assertion relating to the affirmation that U.S. Marine and Thai navy service members received’t kill any animals throughout Cobra Gold 2023:
A prime Thai official instantly confirmed to PETA that for the third yr operating, no animals can be killed throughout Cobra Gold workout routines, that are occurring proper now in Thailand. It’s a welcome signal that this “frat get together gone incorrect” spectacle is now receiving the dishonorable discharge it deserves.
This improvement follows PETA’s launch of surprising video footage and our exposé exhibiting that U.S. Marines have been beforehand compelled to kill chickens with their naked palms, pores and skin and eat stay geckos, eat stay scorpions and tarantulas, and decapitate cobras and drink their blood.
PETA is now calling out the U.S. Military for its shameful coverage that explicitly permits previously banned laboratory experiments involving the wounding of canines, cats, marine animals, and primates with weapons and makes an attempt to hide this unethical follow as “labeled” data.
If the U.S. navy can do proper by animals in Thailand, it also needs to do proper by them at dwelling.
