PETA Supporter Poses as Raw Turkey to Support Cruelty-Free Thanksgiving in Charleston

Members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) concerned about Thanksgiving turkeys staged a demonstration in Charleston, South Carolina, on November 19, where a protester dressed up as a raw turkey on a cutting board.

Footage taken by PETA shows an animal-rights supporter dressed up in flesh-colored shorts, posing alongside two oversized turkey statues.

According to a PETA press release, the protest called for a “turkey-free” Thanksgiving and is part of “a nationwide push for people to celebrate with a vegan feast.” Credit: PETA via Storyful
