PETA Calls for Shoppers to Spread Christmas Cheer to Animals by Not Eating Them
Oxford – Rocking lettuce bikinis and festive red hats and stockings, two PETA “Lettuce Ladies” served up free slices of delicious vegan Tofurky ham to holiday shoppers on Broad Street today. The sexy duo – bearing a sign reading, “Have a Veggie Christmas!” – reminded Christmas-market shoppers that the best way to offer animals some seasonal comfort and joy is to enjoy a delicious meat-free feast this year.
“We’re urging Oxford residents to extend the holiday spirit of peace and goodwill to all by leaving animals off their plates this Christmas”, says PETA Associate Director Elisa Allen. “Thanks to the array of mock-meats available, it’s easier than ever to enjoy a festive meal packed with all the flavour but none of the cruelty of meat.”
PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – points out that in today’s industrialised meat and dairy industries, chickens and turkeys have their throats cut while they’re still conscious, piglets have part of their tails cut off without being given any painkillers and fish suffocate or are cut open while they’re still alive on the decks of fishing boats.
