Animal rights group PETA is asking the state for permission to build a memorial to the hundreds of victims of a semi accident.
Last week a semi hauling turkeys to a Sioux City plant overturned. All 500 birds were killed.
PETA is now asking the DOT for permission to erect a 10-foot tall memorial to the birds.
“This tribute will remind commuters that the best way to prevent tragedies such as this one is to go vegan, because turkeys shouldn’t have to make terrifying trips to slaughterhouses at all,” wrote Alex Moore said in a letter to Iowa DOT.
The memorial also urges drivers to go vegan.
