PETA Says Members to Lie Semi-Nude on Trays Outside SF Steakhouse Today

PETA is going to occupy the steakhouse today.

From Bay City News:

Members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals today plan to lie nearly naked on large trays outside of a steakhouse in San Francisco’s Financial District to protest the eating of meat.

The PETA protesters will be wrapped in cellophane to mimic typical meat packages to demonstrate that all animals, including humans, are made of flesh, blood and bone.

PETA spokesman Adam Miller said the event has been replicated nationwide as part of the organization’s ongoing campaign to encourage people to become vegans.

“It’s an eye-catching demonstration that gets the message across really well,” Miller said.

The group today is targeting Bob’s Steak and Chop House, which Miller said was targeted because “it’s a popular lunch spot that emphasizes a meat menu.”

The protest is planned for noon outside the restaurant, located at 500 California St.

A manager at the restaurant this morning declined to comment on the planned demonstration.

    PETA is beginning to remind me of  the religious zealots who want us to do things their way or else.  Please stop trying to make everyone give up meat, in this instance by targeting a business that has a lot of meat on the menu. It’s about as fair as politicians who are trying to stop Planned Parenthood because they provide abortions.  Live and let live. You’re adding to the incivility that is breaking this country up with this kind of a stunt.
