MEOW: PETA Goes After Online Commenters
PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is searching for the personal information of anonymous commenters who allegedly defamed group's euthanasia policy on an article published at the Huffington Post. The group has filed a civil lawsuit.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the court to release names, email addresses, phone numbers, and other private details about three bloggers who reacted to an April 2 posting by a no-kill shelter advocate that's received almost 5,000 comments and 240,000 "likes" on Facebook.
PETA needs to identify the anonymous commenters in order to bring suit against it's critics. The suit names a poster named "ambersomerville" calling the group "animal Kevorkians."
