PETA Pig: ‘HoneyBaked Ham Killed My Mom’

Published by PETA.

Last Friday was especially good for animals. In honor of the Christian holiday Good Friday, PETA pigs were out in front of the HoneyBaked Ham store in Oakland, California, and lots of other stores, too, joined by friends holding signs like the one below and “It’s a Good Friday to Go Vegan.”

We also handed out copies of our “Glass Walls” video and vegan starter kits to curious customers, showing them what really happens to pigs before they become a honey-baked ham. (Spoiler: It’s anything but merciful.) It was plenty of food for thought for Easter patrons.
