Why Did These PETA ‘Dinosaurs’ Run Across Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo?

Posted on by PETA

To urge people to go vegan, of course! PETA’s big and intimidating “dinosaurs” were at the popular Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo, Japan today to remind everyone that it’s not the Stone Age and eating animals is prehistoric.

The world is in the middle of a pandemic caused by eating animals—and data show that we’re heading for a climate catastrophe if we don’t change our eating habits.

Opting for vegan foods—rather than meaty meals—spares nearly 200 animals each year, and going vegan is one of the easiest and most effective actions you can take to reduce your carbon footprint. The United Nations states that animal agriculture is responsible for nearly a fifth of human-induced greenhouse-gas emissions—and that going vegan is necessary if we are to avoid the worst effects of climate change.

There’s no better time to ditch primeval meat-based diets and go vegan. What are you waiting for?
