PETA’s New Vegan Billboard In Crab Capital Of Maryland

by | August 29, 2018

Baltimore, Maryland is a place known for their love of crabs. For residents of the state’s largest city tucking into some crustaceans along with a cold beer is part of the culture. So it’s only to be expected that PETA’s new vegan billboard has raised some eyebrows among the locals.

As part of a nationwide campaign to get more people to think about where their food is coming from PETA erected a billboard near Baltimore’s busy Inner Harbour, which features Maryland’s state crustacean, the blue crab, along with the words: ‘I’m ME, not MEAT. See the individual. Go Vegan.’

Executive vice president of PETA, Tracy Reiman, supports the billboard and says the aim is to give city residents and tourists “food for thought about sparing sensitive marine animals the agony of being boiled alive or crushed to death in fishing nets simply by going vegan.”

The animal rights group paid for the vegan billboard, which is situated near to popular waterfront locations which are known for their crab cakes, ahead of September’s Baltimore Seafood Festival.

    Crabs and lobsters, like all animals, are sentient beings who feel pain. They should be respected, not boiled alive and eaten. I hope these billboards will ask viewers to stop and think about choosing vegan instead.

    Crabs, like all animals, feel pain so I am all for PETA’s vegan billboard.

    We aren’t really compassionate unless we extend our kindness to all beings, including those who may not look or act like we do. I hope this ad gives people a change of heart about eating these sensitive animals.
