PETA has always been known for their out of the box stunts and activism to spread awareness about animal welfare and advocate for animal rights. It’s just a few weeks ago when they shocked people by posting a video that showed men dancing with phallic shaped veggies hanging from their nether regions. The distasteful video accompanied by a caption reading, “Traditional masculinity is DEAD” looked like a failed attempt to ride the storm Gillette’s ad created.

PETA is back with their high on shock value activism and this time they started out with a pretend dog barbecue stunt in the middle of the street, outside a mall in Sydney, Australia. A PETA activist dressed as a chef pretended to barbecue a fake dog as symbolism for barbecuing lambs. They urged people to go vegan with the message “if you wouldn’t eat a dog, why eat a lamb?”

PETA posted the pictures of the stunt on their Twitter account captioning it:

“PETA supporters grill a dog on the streets of #Sydney, Australia to raise the question, ‘If you wouldn’t eat a dog, why eat a lamb?’ If you find these images disturbing, but you eat meat, think about your perception.”

However, quite a lot of people and even supporters felt that they pushed the envelope too far with their latest stunt. While some people felt shaken with the traumatizing effect this could have on school going children, quite a lot of people felt that such acts could drive people further away from veganism.

A lot of people were visibly miffed with PETA’s latest street activism stunt.

Some were way more than just miffed.

Few supporters too called them out on their latest pretend dog barbecue stunt in the middle of the street.

There were a good few supporters of the stunt who questioned people why barbecuing a fake dog upsets them but not a real dead lamb or pig.

Some people felt that PETA’s new campaign had a point and it was the hour of need for people to associate pigs, sheep, and cows as more than just farm animals.

What is your take on PETA’s latest stunt? Do you think they pushed the envelope too far? Or was this necessary to make people understand that lambs, cows, pigs, and sheep too are animals with feelings just like dogs? Let’s discuss this in the comments below.
