PETA Angry at President Obama Executing a fly

PETA Says No More Fly-Killing, Sends Obama a Humane Fly Catcher - Political Punch

After the President very publically swatted and then killed a fly during an interview with CNBC yesterday, the outspoken animal rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) said they wished Obama had served a better example.
“We support compassion for the even the smallest animals," says Bruce Friedrich, VP for Policy at PETA. “We support giving insects the benefit of the doubt."
Friedrich says PETA supports "brushing flies away rather than killing them" and was disappointed that the President had gone ahead and squashed the pesky fly.

Policy at PETA. “We support giving insects the benefit of the doubt."

This afternoon PETA sent a Katcha Bug, a device which traps bugs and allows their safe release back into nature to the White House.

Are you the kind of person who wouldn't hurt a fly? Is your motto "live
and let live," even when it comes to tiny, six-legged, uninvited house
Then the Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher is for you! Simply place
Katcha Bug over the bug and slowly slide its plastic trapdoor shut. The
bug will step onto the trapdoor as it closes, and you can carry Katcha
Bug outside, where all you need to do is slide the trap door open,
allowing the bug to walk away. You'll have no problem catching even
large spiders with this handy gadget. Katcha Bug measures 9 inches in
length, so you won't have to get too close for comfort.

Using this product is like trying to put a plastic cup over a fly. I have a hard time killing one with a fly swater. I can see my mother running around the house trying to catch a fly. I believe most people will get tired and use the fly swater.
