Baltimore – On Wednesday, a group of PETA supporters will pass out free crispy, crabless cakes seasoned with Old Bay from celebrated local vegan eatery The Land of Kush to tempt recipients to opt for mouth-watering animal-free sea food and leave sensitive crabs—who are typically boiled alive—off their plates.

When:    Wednesday, September 29, 12 noon

Where:    At the intersection of Light and E. Pratt streets, Baltimore

“Crabs are clever homemakers and quick learners who feel pain and fear, just as you and I do,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA encourages everyone to make the switch to delicious vegan sea food, which leaves aquatic animals free to scuttle and swim in their ocean homes.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
