PETA Sends Teen Antagonizing Emails, Scandalous Photos for Auctioning Cow

When 14-year-old Logan Ward came up with the idea to raffle off a cow in order to raise money to go with a non-profit group on a trip to Europe, he never expected it would mean he'd be receiving antagonizing emails from PETA. But that's exactly what happened. The animal rights group not only sent Logan nasty messages, but also photos like the one shown here, depicting women wearing lettuce as underwear. The original email, from PETA's Whitney Calk, read in part:

"It just seems a little strange to me that you feel that someone needs to die for you to go on your school trip... I feel like we can both surely agree that there are several other humane ways to fund raise these days that don't involve a dead, chopped up corpse." Logan and his dad, Scott, appeared on Fox and Friends this morning to speak out on the experience. Scott, who has six children, says he didn't have the money to fully fund Logan's wish to go on the European trip. Hence, they decided to auction what they could - a cow.

"We thought it was a very unique fund raising idea," he said, adding, "When he received the email [from PETA], we were absolutely incensed. Ward called the email, and more specifically the photos within, "wildly inappropriate for a 14-year-old boy." PETA recanted the comments made in the original email, with a representative named Jane Dollinger responding to Logan, saying: "Mea culpa. We sent the wrong letter - this was a situation of someone moving a bit too fast." But Ward isn't buying the notion that the organization accidentally sent the letter. "It's not a form letter. It was very obvious that it was hand-typed and sent to my son directly." As for how PETA even came to the conclusion that killing the cow would be the intent of the person who won the raffle? Scott calls it blind assumption. "They're making an assumption [that someone is going to kill the cow to eat it] ... and that was never the intent from the beginning. From the very beginning of the fundraiser, we said that whoever wins the cow has the choice as far as what they want to do with it."
