PETA bringing campus tour to UR


It's not exactly an experience you'd expect people to line up for, but PETA wants to give University of Rochester students a taste of what it's like to be a pig confined in a factory farm.

Tomorrow, the organization's youth-oriented arm, peta2, will set up an inflatable tent on the campus's Wilson Quad. Inside the tent will be a sow gestation crate, which the organization says in a press release is so small that pregnant pigs can't turn around or take two steps inside of it.

Students will also be able to watch the anti-meat industry documentary "Glass Walls," and to receive samples of vegan food and pick up vegetarian-vegan starter kits. The exhibition is part of peta2's national tour of college campuses.

The peta2 representatives will be on the quad from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
