Posted on 11/18/2011 8:39:36 AM PST by Abathar
A new Thanksgiving ad campaign targeted toward children in schools is barking up a storm this holiday season.
In a news release, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals announced this week that its new outdoor billboard advertising campaign will focus around a central message: "How would children feel if Fido and Fluffy were stuffed and roasted for Thanksgiving?"
The ads feature the head of a Jack Russell terrier on the body of a turkey, and reads, "Kids: If You Wouldn't Eat Your Dog, Why Eat a Turkey?"
The group said the billboards are going up near schools in Oklahoma, Oregon, Florida, New Mexico, Utah and Tennessee.
"Kids love animals, and if they thought about how turkeys feel pain and fear just as dogs and cats do, they'd trade in their drumsticks for Tofurky in a heartbeat," PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said. "This Thanksgiving, families can give all animals something to be thankful for by sticking to humane, delicious vegan meals."

I like my dog more than any PETA member, so if it came down to it I would probably eat them first.
The difference between a PETA fascist is pretty apparent.
I eat meat; I don’t care if you eat meat, vegetables or thrive on minerals.
PETA Fascists don’t eat meat; and want to impose their lifestyle on everyone else, so they are starting with the children first.
It depends on how hungry I am and who the cook is.
how about if you’d eat a turkey, why not a dog?
Well Hitler was a vegetarian.
Mmmmm, German Shepherd Pot Pie.
Hunters: If you can hunt deer, why don’t you try hunting PETA members?
When I was growing up on a farm in Iowa, the standard rule concerning edible livestock was that any critter that has a name is safe from becoming Sunday dinner.
My sister and I had a pet turkey named “Tom” (how original...hey, we were kids) that we raised from a ‘chick’ and he was imprinted with the image of us being his mom.
He followed us around constantly like a spare shadow and always came out to meet us, getting off the school bus each afternoon. He’d come out and fan out his feathers and strut around a bit. It was his main, possibly only, talent.
In early November, word leaked out to us that he was going to be the main course for Thanksgiving dinner. The old rule had been over-ridden and Tom was about to be “axed” literally.
Come the day before Thanksgiving, we all dreaded what was about to happen and nobody would volunteer to be his executioner. Just thinking about it spread through the family to where we were all nearly in tears.
We couldn’t bear to kill Tom for dinner, so we ate the dog.
I wonder what kind of call would work best on a PETA member - Perhaps the sound of a carrot being chopped up on wood cutting board?
I guy I knew had a calf on his farm named "Cheeseburger".
Kids, if your dog, or a turkey were big enough...they sure the heck would eat you.
Funny, I used to name all the hogs I raised for the freezer. Never bothered me a bit to eat them.
Why do you even HAVE a dog, kid? They are carnivores! They eat meat!!!!!!!! If you feed a dog you are abetting KILLING!!!!!!!! Aaaiiieeeeeeeeeee..........
That’s clever. I like the label. It makes the title much more interesting.
Because my dog enjoys eating turkey as much as I do.
