More PETA idiocy.
On August 17, a tractor-trailer hauling pigs overturned on Route 30 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, killing several pigs. Now animal rights group PETA is demanding that state officials erect a grave marker to memorialize the lives of the pigs at the site of the crash.
The truck was reportedly carrying some 80 pigs to market but several were euthanized because of the accident.
Animal rights group People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is demanding that the state of Pennsylvania “erect a 5-foot tombstone” on the side of the highway next to the site where the accident occurred.
The PETA press release said that Pennsylvania has a responsibility to push the PETA ideology. The group said the state must memorialize the “terrified animals” that died in the crash in order to “give motorists food for thought by calling on caring people to spare pigs the terrifying journey to slaughter by going vegan.”
