Pigs, cows and chickens are remarkable beings," says campaign spokesperson Kimberly Carroll. "Cows will walk for miles to reunite with a calf after being sold at auction. Pigs have intelligence beyond that of a 3 year-old human. Chickens mourn the loss of their loved ones. We hope that in connecting with these animals and the grievous suffering that is behind every burger, omelette, and hot dog, people will be motivated to make more compassionate food choices.
Yay! These ads should be everywhere, I love that there are people passionate enough to make these things happen

i don't get why people say it is new and they are surprised it got approved. i remember a few years ago, shortly before becoming a vegetarian riding a subway and staring at this piglet, reading the info and feeling like a scumbag.

but yeah, i love this campaign, it may work on many people

I love these ads. Proof compelling ads don't have to involve naked celebrities or offensive slogans. (Please listen , PETA)

These ads are probably a lot more effective than what PETA puts out these days.

When you read this you get so sad about the cruelty in the world which still allows the slaughter of such wonderful creatures

This is Super Awesome. Hopefully next - they start putting full-sized ads like this on buses.

Excellent. That is so very much better than naked women and porn sites, as has been said. Even I learned something (I didn't know how smart chickens were).

PETA is doing an awesome job these days, without PETA the quiet campaigns wouldn't be half as effective

PETA can be extreme but extreme gets attention.

Extreme sometimes gets the wrong attention, though. The naked girls + porn definitely gets the wrong attention. There was a time when PETA was 'extreme' without having naked girls, and got better results.

I agree but unfortunately the "no publicity is bad publicity" thing sometimes rings true. Don't get me wrong, I'm not down with the PETA porn but it does get people talking.

i would need to see the reasoning of PETA about naked girls. I don't really see how it works either, but if they do it often enough there may be a reason. I love the rest of thing they are doing though. Suing seaWorld for slavery? brilliant!

Unfortunately, the talk it inspires is often about how crazy vegans are, and turns people away. That's why I don't agree with doing absolutely anything to get attention. People just knowing about PETA, animal rights, and veganism isn't going to do any good if they have only negative impressions.
