As President Donald Trump was being sworn in today, PETA’s costumed “carrot,” “pig,” and “cow” were urging inauguration crowds to take an oath to save animals, get healthy, and protect the environment by going vegan.
The high-energy mascots distributed free copies of PETA’s vegan starter kit to passersby, which people grabbed like hotcakes.
Our patriotic posse also posed for photos beside PETA’s new posters featuring Courtney Stodden, which were plastered along the inauguration parade route.
Not to be braggadocious, but vegans are, on average, significantly leaner than meat-eaters are. They’re also less prone to heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and cancer—and that’s nothing to sniff at. In addition to preventing huge suffering on factory farms and in slaughterhouses, vegan meals also help prevent forests, prairies, and, ahem, swamps, from being destroyed in order to make room for grazing livestock and to grow crops for animal feed.
