Cruelty-Free Pig Ears

Published by PETA.

Pig ears. They’re pretty gross when you think about it, and they just got a little grosser after a nationwide recall of pig-ear dog treats because of salmonella contamination. It’s safe to say that my dog, Hannah, will be staying a safe paw’s length away from them. But she and other dogs aren’t going to have to go treatless, thanks to the Veggie Pig Ears available through the PETA Catalog. The veggie ears are completely meat-, gluten-, and salmonella-free, but full of tail-wagging good flavor.

Ellie’s all ears—veggie pig ears, that is.

Salmonella fears aside, considering how similar dogs and pigs are in terms of intelligence and personality, feeding a pig’s ear to a dog is, well, kind of eerie.
