Vegetarian Dolphins Running Back to Declare the Winners at His Miami Beach Restaurant

Miami Beach, Fla. -- Thinking about serving chicken wings at your Super Bowl party? Time out! Miami Dolphins star running back Ricky Williams is teaming up with PETA at his Miami Beach eatery, Proof Restaurant and Lounge, where he'll host a taste test for the finest faux wings in the land--just in time for the big game. Williams has been a vegetarian for years and knows firsthand that faux wings have all the flavor of chicken wings but none of the artery-clogging cholesterol and animal fat. Williams and PETA would like football fans to give faux wings a try.
Williams will be available for interviews.
When: Wednesday, February 3, 12 noon – 1 pm
Wings will be served to guests on hand.
Where: Proof Restaurant and Lounge (located inside Z Ocean Hotel), 1458 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach "Thanks in part to his healthy vegetarian diet, Williams has stayed lean and mean and is still one of the most feared backs in the NFL," says PETA's campaigns director, Dan Shannon. "Birds need their wings--we don't."
To produce chicken wings, workers cut off birds' sensitive beaks without giving the animals any painkillers. The birds are then crammed into dark, filthy sheds. At the slaughterhouse, the chickens' throats are cut while they are still conscious, and millions of birds are scalded to death in defeathering tanks every year.

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.
