A new billboard is set to be placed on Briley Parkway, a main partial beltway around Nashville, Tennessee, near the location where innocent cows died following a crash on Friday.

Sponsored by PETA , the billboard will show a cow’s face next to the words “I’m ME, Not MEAT. See the Individual. Go Vegan.”

“At least two gentle cows died after this semi overturned, and those who survived the terrifying crash presumably ended up under the slaughterhouse knife,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s billboard urges motorists to prevent these needless deaths by keeping cows and all other animals off their plates.”

The organization noted that before cows are loaded onto trucks bound for slaughterhouses, they spend their short lives in cramped, filthy feedlots without protection from temperature extremes.

Calves are torn away from their mothers within hours of birth and are castrated and branded without painkillers. At the slaughterhouse, workers shoot cows in the head with a captive-bolt gun, hang them up by one leg, cut their throats, and skin them, often while they’re still conscious.

According to WKRN News, the cows were wandering around on the highway before animal control was called to round them up.

This marks yet another case of tragic deaths of animals for the sake of human consumption.

The cows should have been grazing freely on a pasture, not on a truck headed to a slaughterhouse.

More senseless loss of life. More reasons to go vegan!
