Give Animals a ‘Brake’: PETA to Dish Up Vegan Vittles at Roadkill Cook-Off

For Immediate Release:

Marlinton, W.V. – Festivalgoers at this year’s West Virginia Roadkill Cook-Off will spot a vendor booth from an unlikely ally: PETA. While the group gives the green light to turning accidental vehicular victims into vittles, it also knows that going vegan is the kindest and healthiest choice—so PETA’s booth will feature delicious meat-free chili prepared by vegan chef and Guy’s Grocery Games winner Sasha Raj, along with free vegan starter kits that can help everyone make the switch.

When:    Saturday, September 23, 9 a.m.

Where:    200 Eighth St., Marlinton (PETA’s booth will be located between the Pocahontas County Opera House and City National Bank.)

“Animals who lived free and died in tragic accidents had far better lives than those confined to filthy feedlots and whose throats were slit in slaughterhouses,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “If meat addicts must get their fix, they can feast on flesh found on highways, but PETA reminds everyone that the kindest meals are free of animals and asphalt.”

Each person who goes vegan spares nearly 200 animals every year, dramatically shrinks their carbon footprint, and reduces their risk of suffering from cancer, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and obesity.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
