After Green Bay Packers tight end Jared Cook allegedly received a severed chicken head with his order at Buffalo Wild Wings last week, PETA is rushing him a basket of delicious meat-free wings to help satisfy his craving for a protein-packed post-game snack.
“Chickens are sensitive, intelligent animals who have the same ability to feel pain as dogs, cats, and humans, and the one you discovered had likely been dumped into a fryer while still conscious,” PETA writes in the accompanying note. “Now, before you block that image from your mind, be a champion for both the Packers and chickens this season by leaving chickens off your plate next time you rush out for a meal.”
More NFL players than ever are making the transition to plant-based eating, including Cook’s teammate Aaron Rodgers, Tyrann Mathieu, and Colin Kaepernick. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
