On Monday PETA organizers stood on the corner of E. Pratt and S. Calvert Street asking Baltimore residents to skip turkey this Thanksgiving by asking them to put themselves in a turkey’s place.
“All animals have flesh, organs, and feelings and don’t want to die violently for someone else’s meal,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is calling on caring people to give turkeys a break this Thanksgiving and make their holiday table a place of compassion for all beings.”
Emily Lavender, a campaigner for PETA stood outside handing out flyers and holiday recipes to those who were interested in going cruelty free this year.
But the show stopper of the day was a nude volunteer on top of a large cutting board “trussed-up” and posing next to two giant turkey carcasses. All to protest the mass killing of turkeys for Thanksgiving dinners.
PETA is offering some holiday dinner alternatives on their website, such as a vegan roast that you can try at home .
