This Is Where Donations To The National ASPCA End Up

Those donations end up in the pockets of lawyers. In this case, $9.3 million went to Ringling Brothers and their lawyers after they successfully countersued the ASPCA for faking a story of elephant abuse.

WASHINGTON—An animal rights group will pay Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus $9.3 million to settle its part of a lawsuit stemming from claims the circus abused its elephants.
The circus company's owners announced the settlement with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals on Friday. The animal rights group was one of several that in 2000 sued the circus' owner, Feld Entertainment Inc., claiming elephants were abused. Courts later found that the animal rights activists had paid a former Ringling employee to bring the lawsuit and that the man didn't have the right to sue the circus.

I love animals (they are tasty) but I hate animal rights activists.

In a doomsday scenario, hippies will be among the first casualties. So not everything about doomsday will be bad.
