PETA Encourages Kids To Go Vegan For Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving. The whole family gathered around the table to feast on homemade goodies like mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, and of course the tofurkey. Well, that’s how PETA would like you to spend Thanksgiving anyway. The animal rights group is encouraging a Vegan feast, and for all you carnivores , that means no animal products at all. The group has rolled out a controversial ad campaign aimed at your kiddos this holiday season, asking them to think outside the box…the biodegradeable, recycled box of course.
PETA released the campaign Monday and asks kids,”If you wouldn’t eat your dog, why eat a turkey?”
Turkeys may not be as familiar to us as dogs or cats, but they have the same ability to suffer; they are sensitive, curious creatures, and it doesn’t make sense to call dogs our friends and turkeys our food,” Ashley Byrne, PETA’s manager of campaigns, told TODAY.com. “There are a lot of kids out there who don’t want to see such cruelty on the Thanksgiving dinner table.”
And there are alot of kids who can’t wait to go back for seconds of that delicious holiday bird. So what do you think? Has PETA gone to far by targeting kids ?
