Salt Lake City – Winner, winner, vegan chicken dinner! Or in this case, lunch, as PETA and Utah Animal Rights Coalition (UARC) supporters pass out free meatless wings on Thursday at 12 noon for National Chicken Wing Day. Served fresh from the award-winning Vertical Diner, the vegan Buffalo wings are the groups’ animal-friendly way of challenging reports that wings are in “short supply.”

When:    Thursday, July 29, 12 noon

Where:    At the intersection of S. Temple and Main streets, Salt Lake City

“There’s no point getting one’s feathers ruffled over a wing ‘shortage’ when vegan options taste better, cost less, and leave sentient birds in peace,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “With this fun and finger-licking giveaway, PETA is asking everyone to show chickens kindness and let them keep their wings.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—offers a list of ready-to-heat vegan wings available at grocery stores. For more information, please visit or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

“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
