St. George, Utah – If you wouldn’t eat a dog, why eat a pig, a turkey, or a cow? That’s the food for thought PETA supporters will be serving up on Saturday as they “barbecue” a lifelike “dog” next to Vernon Worthen Park and the Downtown Farmers Market while other animal allies hand out free vegan starter kits and kids’ guides to animal rights.

When:    Saturday, December 16, 12 noon

Where:    Near the pickleball courts at Vernon Worthen Park, 210 S. 400 E., St. George

“Pigs, cows, chickens, and turkeys feel pain and fear and love their families just like dogs do,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA urges anyone disturbed by the idea of cooking a canine to extend that compassion to all animals and go vegan.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
