Ahead of Thanksgiving, a PETA “chick” wearing a turkey-themed showgirl outfit—complete with a bright orange faux-feather headdress—will give away turkey-free holiday roasts in front of the Aldi store in Ghent on Saturday to encourage people to enjoy a vegan holiday and give birds a break.

When:    Saturday, November 18, 11:15 a.m.

Where:    In front of the Aldi in Ghent, 730 W. 21st St., Norfolk

“Turkeys feel pain and fear, experience joy, value their lives, and don’t deserve to be carved up and stuffed any more than we do,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s tutu-wearing ‘turkeys’ are urging everyone to show a little mercy by tucking into savory, satisfying vegan roasts that give everyone something to be thankful for.”

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