You gotta be shittin' me.
PETA wants memorial for turkeys killed in Iowa crash

DES MOINES — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has asked the Iowa Department of Transportation for permission to erect a 10-foot-tall memorial to the turkeys that perished in a Sioux City truck crash on April 12.

Alex Moore, a PETA staff member from Ankeny, wrote the proposed memorial would “remind commuters that the best way to prevent tragedies such as this one is to go vegan, because turkeys shouldn't have to make terrifying trips to slaughterhouses at all.”

A mock-up of the suggested memorial features an image of turkey and urges people to “try vegan.”

  2. "PETA spokeswoman Sophia Charchuk said the organization has tried to place memorials before with little luck. 'In the past, we've applied in California, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Oregon, Virginia, and Wisconsin to memorialize hundreds of animals who have died in similar crashes, but so far, we haven't been accepted.'”

    Ha! Maybe it's time for them to get a clue that they haven't been accepted because it is a ridiculous idea. I don't think a memorial like that is going to convince anyone to go vegan. It might distract other drivers and cause more accidents though!
