PETA plans Dublin billboard ad with human leg on plate


By Shelley Marsen

Animal rights group PETA has revealed it is in talks to place a billboard ad in the Irish capital depicting a human leg on a plate.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) said the planned campaign comes as gardaí are looking into the discovery of human remains at a recycling plant in the city.

In a press release, PETA said that “eating meat is eating a corpse” and called on people to take up a vegan lifestyle.

PETA spokeswoman Yvonne McNulty-Taylor said: “Maybe this tragedy will cause people to think about where their meat comes from every time they sit down to eat.”
