When a group of bloodthirsty zombies
descends on New York City, where do they head? To the Meatpacking District, of
course. Because all animals are made of flesh, bones, and blood and all animals
feel pain, zombies don't see a difference between eating people and eating
Goth star Sharon Needles, the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race, doesn't see a
difference, either. She joined the troop of undead to reveal her macabre PETA
ad just in time for Halloween.
For a limited time, PETA is offering magnets featuring Sharon's ad—for $6.66! Spooky. And the Logo network, which airs Drag
Race, is running a 30-second PETA public service
announcement during its Halloween programming.
And now for the scariest thing that you'll
see this Halloween … click

As a special Halloween
treat, we've cooked up a factoid scarefest about some of the world's creepiest—and
not so creepy—animals:

I might open the door to
my burrow in a tarantula costume when this year's trick-or-treaters knock, but check

a move that would have made horror film legend Vincent Price proud, PETA's "zombies"
haunted patrons at Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse in Cincinnati yesterday, just in time for Halloween.
undead let everyone know that flesh is for zombies and advised them to "eat grains,
not brains." Many
flesh-eaters used their brrrrraaaaaiiiiins and got information about going vegetarian or vegan.
even zombies are urging
people to bury their meat habit, you know that the stuff is gross. For meals that will
bring your taste buds back to life, check out our hundreds of tasty meatless recipes.

No, the title of this post isn't ripped from the headlines of the Weekly World News. It happened in real life (or, rather, undeath), just a stone's throw from PETA headquarters. This weekend, among the 1,700 participants and activists representing ZETZ—Zombies for the Ethical Treatment of Zombies—were several PETA folks in the first-ever "Survive Norfolk"—essentially a massive game of tag in which the living try to avoid being "zombified" by the living dead—to explain why going vegan is a no-brainer (sorry), and to hand out some "flesh-free recipes" (aka our vegan starter kits).
I'll admit, zombies are pretty scary, but not nearly as horrifying as what meat does to animals, our health, and the planet. So listen to your favorite zombie jam while you sign our pledge to opt out of flesh-eating. Or try this outfit in your own parade or when you go out trick-or-treating:

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.
