Mad ‘Cow’ Disrupts Cattlemen’s Convention

Published by Michelle Kretzer.

When PETA’s “bovine” campaigner for cow causes got wind of a Missouri Cattlemen’s Association convention in Columbia, Missouri, she rounded up some friends and hoofed it to the site. 

The “cow” took to the stage at the coronation of the Beef Queen, then marched across the room with her “Meat Is Murder” sign to ask the attendees to give cows the royal treatment instead—by not slaughtering them for food.  As a cowboy herded the “cow” to the exit, supportive people in the crowd booed her unceremonious removal.

Say “boo” to beef!
