Ft. Worth, Texas – Wearing feathered skirts, combat boots, and holsters, a trio of “Commando Chicks” from PETA will dish up free vegan Taco Bell burritos on Tuesday. The giveaway is in honor of a new PETA billboard—featuring a chicken’s face next to the words “Would It Kill You to Get a Bean Burrito?”—that just went up next to the Taco Bell on W. Berry Street.

When:    Tuesday, July 2, 12 noon

Where:    Taco Bell, 1913 W. Berry St., Fort Worth

“It’s easier than ever to find delicious vegan food, including at fast-food staples such as Taco Bell,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s ‘Commando Chicks’ are eager to prove that eating vegan is as simple as ordering a fresco-style bean burrito.”

Unlike meaty dishes, vegan meals are free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol. Going vegan also spares nearly 200 animals every year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries. PETA has prepared a guide for eating vegan at Taco Bell (available here).

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist viewpoint. For more information, please visit PETA.org.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
