Everyone celebrates Halloween, even the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, much better known as PETA, who were spotted today at noon on St. Laurent. Clad in flesh body paint, three PETA members stood outside of Schwartz's Deli to remind everyone that "flesh is flesh."
Not an impromptu protest, PETA planned this demonstration with Halloween in mind, according to Global. Through this protest the group members hope to let everyone know that “animals are not ours to eat,” a fact that probably wasn't too comforting to folks waiting to mack on some smoked meat.
We ran out to check out the protest about an hour and a half later, only to find the gory gals had gone. Not surprising, since body paint doesn't really hold up well against this "nipply" weather, if you catch my drift.
Check out the image below, tweeted out from Shuyee Lee of CJAD.
