People living near Hamilton, Ontario, were shocked to learn that one of their neighbors had been keeping the decomposing corpse of her dead husband in a bedroom of their home for six months. So PETA is alerting people that corpses could be hiding in plain sight in other people’s homes, too—particularly in kitchen refrigerators. We’re negotiating with Hamilton-area advertisers to place this billboard in the city:
If people don’t want to share their homes with corpses, they’ll have to steer clear of the meat case.
Every year, billions of animals have their bodies chopped up, wrapped in cellophane, labeled, and sent to the supermarket. But animal advocates know that “ribs,” “legs,” and other “meats” are really the flesh of animals who had the capacity to feel love, fear, joy, and grief and who suffered immensely before they were killed for food.
Are there corpses in your home? Time to go vegan.
