PETA’s headquarters is located at the street in question.
Norfolk, VA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Animal liberation organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is getting a taste of its own medicine. Recently, PETA attempted to persuade the English village of Wool to change its name to “Vegan Wool.”
And earlier this week, a street in a French village, Rue de la Saucisse—or “sausage street”—was similarly targeted by PETA, with the organization demanding the street be renamed “Rue de la Soycisse,” referencing soy.
In response, the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) is fighting fire with fire.
On the morning of December 5, CCF asked the city of Norfolk, VA (where PETA’s headquarters is located) to consider renaming Front Street to “PETA Kills Ave.” in order to better reflect the actions of the group headquartered at 501 Front Street. “Butcher St.” and “Serial Killer Way” are other possibilities.
CCF’s letter to the Norfolk city council can be viewed below.
