You know what they
say: The key to a man's heart is through his … stomach. Our sexy pilgrims, who
are touring New England this week, can attest to that and more. Obviously, they
attract a crowd, largely because of the delicious, free Tofurkys
they're handing out. In fact, the Tofurkys flew
off the table—with men and women gobbling them up—within 20 minutes in Bangor,
The pilgrims also gave out PETA's free vegetarian/vegan starter kits
and told passersby that every year in the U.S., 40 million gentle, inquisitive turkeys
are killed for Thanksgiving dinners alone.
In nature, turkeys are protective and loving
parents as well as fast, cunning runners who are able to outwit their pursuers.
But the turkey industry
crams the birds into windowless warehouses and genetically manipulates them to
grow so large that their legs are often unable to withstand the birds' weight.
Countless birds slowly starve to death within inches of food after they become
crippled and are unable to move.
PETA's sexy pilgrims will be docking in New Haven
today and Providence tomorrow. Even if you aren't lucky enough to grab a
Tofurky from these lovely ladies, you can get tips on serving up a cruelty-free feast
at our "Living"

Our sexy pilgrims put the free in cruelty-free in Atlanta yesterday, giving out complimentary Tofurkys to lucky passersby. The sizzling settlers charmed the lunchtime crowd and even convinced a restaurant owner to give a Tofurky to his chef.
The visit to Atlanta marked the end of our six-city Sexy-Pilgrim Tofurky-Giveaway Tour, but the tasty generosity never has to end. Save lives and the environment by making your Thanksgiving a vegan one—check out our scrumptious Thanksgiving guide.

It's a chilly South Dakota afternoon. You and a friend are scheduled to help save turkeys from a horrible fate at the latest head-turning PETA demo, but your sexy pilgrim costumes have yet to arrive. How do you resolve this nail-biter? Do you (A) go home and have vegan hazelnut hot cocoa? (A cop-out, yes, but oh-so-scrumptious.) Or (B) take matters into your own hands and get all fashionista on it?
Well our down-for-the-count campaigners were certainly not to be put off by some teeny trifle like not having any supplies for their demo. Pshaw! Thinking fast and on their stilettoed feet, they trotted off to the nearest Target and whipped up these stylish numbers.
Impressive, n'est pas?
By the time the original costumes showed up, the turkey-defending tour-de-force was already in full swing! And, as you can see, suited up in their proper gear, our resilient campaigners are keeping it going.
So bonnets off to you pilgrim beauties. You've defended turkeys with your craftiness rain or shine—and all the while in heels! You can also see the pilgrims in action here.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
