It Isn't Easy Being Pink

Pop quiz: Besides primates, who are the smartest animals?

Oh yea that’s right—our friends, the PIGS.

They also dream, recognize their names, play video games more effectively than some primates, and lead social lives of a complexity that were first thought to only exist among primates. I don’t know about you but I’d love to get down on some video games with a pig. Yet for some reason they are being tortured in factory farms. Lame.

This week in the land of Warped Tour, our new friend Tim F. of Ludo, signed our petition to help end cruelty to pigs in factory farms.

After some wicked 4 a.m. border crossings into Toronto, we had the amazing Shane of Silverstein, and a rad Street Teamer, Brendan, stop by to help us celebrate our victory with KFCs in Canada.

Remember—a vegan faux-chicken item has been added to the menu of all 461 Priszm-owned KFC restaurants (more than half of all the KFCs in Canada)!

These changes in the lives of defenseless animals are only possible because of YOU, when you sign the petitions, and join the Street Team.

Now let’s get some love and respect for our brilliant pig friends!

Brutally Yours

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
