Kentucky PETA members marked World Week for the Abolition of Meat by wearing little clothing and a lot of "blood" in 28-degree temperatures outside the JBS Swift slaughterhouse in Louisville.
"We are challenging people to really think about what 'meat' is," PETA senior campaigner Ashley Byrne told reporters. "When you eat flesh, you're eating the corpse of an abused animal who did not want to die. We're encouraging kind consumers to try going vegan."
