If you’re spending time across the pond for the holidays, stand by for a moving message board. PETA UK’s latest holiday ad is on buses around London and asks, “If You Wouldn’t Eat Your Dog, Why Eat a Turkey?” The ad—which shows a dog’s collar resting on a gravy-slathered plate—reminds everyone that turkeys, just like the dogs and cats with whom we share our homes, have feelings, too, and don’t want to end up as dinner.
The ad has caused quite a stir, and many people have taken to social media to share their reactions:
Just saw my first #PETA bus spreading the #vegan message 🙂 @PETAUK @peta

There’s no need for turkeys to suffer for a meal when there are plenty of delicious vegan roasts on the market. By serving up a plant-based meal, people spare sensitive, smart animals a lifetime of misery and a nasty death.
