PETA is getting a taste of its own medicine. We have proposed that Front Street in Norfolk, Virginia—where PETA’s headquarters is located—be renamed to “PETA Kills Avenue.” Other possibilities include “Butcher Street” and “Serial Killer Way.”
This follows PETA’s press stunt demanding the English village of Wool change its name to “Vegan Wool.” A street in a French village, Rue de la Saucisse—or “sausage street”—was similarly targeted by PETA, with the organization demanding the street be renamed “Rue de la Soycisse,” referencing soy.
Having the tables turned on PETA is satisfying—but there’s something bigger at play here. PETA’s cruelty and unethical treatment of animals is appalling. The organization runs a “shelter” in Norfolk where the staff kills just about every animal that comes through the doors, no matter how healthy or adoptable. Indeed, PETA has consistently opposed pet ownership, called for the killing of all stray cats, and the extermination of pit bulls.
Renaming Front Street to PETA Kills Avenue would expose PETA’s horrid practices and help the residents of Norfolk be better informed as to the true nature of PETA.
Watch an interview with us here and please spread the word on social media. And encourage the Norfolk Mayor and City Council to make this animal-friendly street name a reality:
