PETA plans billboards
SASKATOON—A U.S.-based animal rights group is planning on putting up billboards near Saskatoon’s public schools this Thanksgiving holiday.
The billboards, which also will run in Winnipeg and Ottawa, will read: “Kids, if you wouldn’t eat your dog, why eat a turkey? Go vegan.”
Stroyeck said the billboard will feature a friendly-looking animal that is a cross between a turkey and a Jack Russell Terrier dog.
She added she hopes it stirs up some controversy at the dinner table.
“The cruelty that animals go through on factory farms and are slaughtered for food would result in cruelty to animal charges for factory farm executives if they treated dogs and cats in the same way,” Stroyeck said.
