CINCINNATI -- The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is trying to spice up Valentine’s Day and entice people to go vegan.
A group of PETA activists clad in chili-pepper bikinis and red heels, red scarves and thigh-high stockings will hand out chocolates in downtown Cincinnati Wednesday.
"PETA wants everyone to know that going vegan is a great way to get a sizzling physique and have a red-hot Valentine's Day," PETA member Meggan Anderson said. "After all, there's nothing hotter than being both passionate and compassionate."
The provocative protest will start at noon at the corner of Sixth and Vine streets.
PETA claims going vegan will spare more than 100 animals per year from factory farms and slaughterhouses.
The group said the consumption of meat, eggs and diary products have been linked to heart disease and other ailments.
