PETA Plans to Fly Vegan Banner over Rockland Lobster Festival

An animal rights group says it plans to hire an airplane to fly over the Lobster Festival here tomorrow that will carry a banner reading “Keep your paws of their claws: Try vegan.” People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says the plane will circle the festival every 15 minutes starting at just after noon, until 2:30 p.m. on the event’s opening day, to highlight the organizations belief that lobsters feel pain and fear, and are killed in gruesome ways for human consumption. mpbn 18:07
