PETA’s pigs allowed at Ohio protest
An animal rights group has been granted permission to bring three hogs in
narrow metal crates to the Ohio Statehouse as part of a factory farm protest.
The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board approved the request from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals for the July 9 protest, but it rejected other parts of their plan, including requests to bring
gallons of urine, tons of manure and a fan to blow the odors around, The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch reported Thursday.
The board also gave PETA approval to bring a sound system to play
actual recorded screams of piglets, a video booth to display
undercover footage of factory farms and a large banner reading:
Ban Factory Farms: Go Vegetarian. PETA.
