Augusta, Ga. – Ahead of Thanksgiving, a PETA “chick” wearing a turkey-themed outfit—complete with a festive faux-feather tutu—will be joined by a flock of supporters giving away turkey-free holiday roasts in front of Sprouts Farmers Market on Saturday to encourage people to enjoy a vegan holiday and give birds a break.
When: Saturday, November 18, 1 p.m.
Where: In front of Sprouts Farmers Market, 630 Crane Creek Dr., Augusta

“Turkeys feel pain and fear, experience joy, value their lives, and don’t deserve to be carved up and stuffed any more than we do,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA urges everyone to show a little mercy by tucking into savory, satisfying vegan roasts that give everyone something to be thankful for.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—offers a “ThanksVegan” recipe guide.
