Sen. Byrd Honored by PETA

Sen. Robert Byrd was named PETA's "Person of the Year" for his work on animal cruelty issues.

"Much animal suffering has been alleviated thanks to Senator Byrd, and this year we are proud to honor him for giving a voice to the voiceless,'' PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said.

Calls to Byrd's offices were not immediately returned today.

Past recipients of the award include owners of a company that makes cleaning products without testing them on animals and the designer of a "humane'' rodent trap.
