When I think of West Virginia, the first word that pops in my head surely isn’t: progressive. But color me ignorant! PETA has just announced that their person of the year is none other than West Virginia senator Robert C. Byrd.

In 2005, Byrd coauthored the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act, which prohibited the transport, purchase or sale of our equestrian pals for human consumption. Willie Nelson publicly added his stamp of approval to this bill as well.

In 2002, Byrd also petitioned to convince the Senate Appropriations Committee to provide $5 million (the most money ever requested) for improving enforcement for the Humane Slaughter Act.

Most recently, during the Michael Vick case, Byrd delivered a 24-minute speech on the senate floor, condemning dog fighting and describing it as “barbaric.”

Keep up the great work, Senator.

There’s more than enough out their promoting the use of animals already- can’t animal rights activists agree to be the ones who say stop it and mean it?
