St. Louis, Mo. – A costumed “sad pig” from PETA will hit HoneyBaked Ham in St. Louis during lunchtime on Friday to promote merciful meals for Easter. Other PETA members will distribute copies of the group’s video exposé of the meat industry, which reveals how factory farms are hell on Earth for animals.

When:   Friday, April 18, noon 

Where:  HoneyBaked Ham, 6936 S. Lindbergh Blvd., St. Louis

“Jesus would be appalled by the suffering inflicted on the pigs, chickens, cows, and other animals on today’s factory farms,” says PETA campaigner Matt Bruce. “PETA encourages Christians and non-Christians alike to show mercy for all creatures by choosing vegan meals—for Easter Sunday and beyond.”
