If the animal rights organization, PETA, has their way, a lot of people in Maryland will be eating a lot less crabs.
The group has placed a billboard right downtown in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, urging diners “to leave crabs and other sea animals off dinner plates and in their aquatic homes.”
The billboard, which says, “”I’m ME, Not MEAT. See the Individual. Go Vegan.”, is part of PETA’s national campaign, and has arrived just in time for Baltimore’s Seafood Festival to be held on September 15.
We don’t know, but it seems that while it may be a good cause, these appear to be “fighting words” for all die-hard crab eaters and those fond of the tradition that is Maryland. With visitors from around the world visiting Baltimore for a taste of Maryland crabs, we don’t know how this is going to go over.
