PETA Gets Pie in the Face

(St. John's, N.L.) The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) recently protested seal hunting by hitting Canada's Fisheries Minister Gail Shea in the face with a pie.

In response, a seal hunt supporter retaliated with a pie to the face of a PETA protester waiting for the arrival of Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Friday.
A woman wearing a seal suit was waiting for Prime Minister Stephen Harper to arrive for a speech when a man approached, dressed in a local mascot’s outfit — a dog with a rain slicker and a sou’wester.

The seal hunt supporter shoved a cream pie into the woman’s face after knocking off the head of her seal costume.
The pied PETA protester, Emily Lavender, 21, indicated that she was pleased to take a pie in the puss for a purpose (video).

Although some would say that a pie in the face to PETA is only fair play since "They started it," however, it's not a good sign that physical confrontations between PETA and its opponents are escalating. Instead, I suggest that criminal charges and civil lawsuits be pursued.
