Human Remains Found in Meat Wrappers

Published by PETA.

Meat is murder, and disturbing new facts released last week about the case of convicted British Columbia pig farmer turned serial killer Robert Pickton show just how dead-on the saying is.

The Province reports, “In Pickton’s freezer were eight packages of meat both chunked and ground, some wrapped in plastic, some in butcher’s paper. These were the last remains of Inga Hall and Cindy Dawn Feliks.” The provincial health officer also warned in 2004 that the remains of some of Pickton’s victims may have been mixed in with pig flesh sold from his farm.

It should go without saying that no one—whether they have two legs or four—deserves to be tortured, killed, cut up, and eaten, and that’s why PETA ran this billboard in Edmonton after the murders:

So … who are you having for dinner? I think I’ll stick to food that didn’t have a face.
