In an ad released by the animal rights organization “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals” (aka PETA) a dog with a turkey’s body (or a turkey with a dog’s head) is pictured beside the question: “Kids: If you wouldn’t eat your dog, why eat a turkey? GO VEGAN.” PETA plans to post the ad on billboards near public schools in cities around the country, according to ABC News.
No, PETA, I would not eat my dog for Thanksgiving. And neither, I hope and trust, would my dog eat me for Thanksgiving, or any other holiday observance. But my dog would assuredly and happily eat a turkey, or part of one. And I plan on recognizing my dog’s inherent good sense and good taste by doing the same thing myself.
