[from New York Post]

September 3, 2003 --  Petco, the nation's second-largest pet supply
retailer, has been no stranger to controversy when it comes to the animals
it sells.

Several lawsuits have accused the company of starving baby birds to death
and throwing sick animals into the freezer as a type of frosty euthanasia.

Reports of mistreatment even prompted pop star Pink to encourage her fans
to boycott the chain.

Now People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has put forward a
shareholder resolution asking the company to stop selling animals altogether.
