PETA targets turkey crash in Sioux City

Posted:

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) PETA is requesting permission from the Iowa Department of Transportation to put up a 10-foot memorial, in Sioux City, after hundreds of turkeys spilled onto the road, following an accident.

It happened in the early morning hours of April 12th, at the intersection Gordon Drive and South Alice.  Authorities say a semi truck trailer carrying the live turkeys was speeding down the road when the cargo shifted, causing the truck to tip over.

PETA hopes this statue will encourage more people to go Vegan, in an effort to prevent these types of accidents.

The DOT says they're looking at the request, and working on a formal response.

However, they say a memorial of any kind is not allowed in a public right of way.
