PHOTOS: Cruelty-Free Clowns Parade Down Makati’s Streets

Posted on by PETA

Spotted! Cruelty-free clowns descended on Makati to tout the health, environmental, and animal-related benefits of going vegan.

Clowns get a bad rap, but they’re not half as scary as slaughterhouses, where millions of animals die in the Philippines and throughout Asia every year.

In today’s industrialized meat and dairy industries, chickens’ throats are cut (often while they’re still conscious), piglets‘ tails and testicles are chopped off without any pain relief, and calves are taken away from their mothers within hours of birth. In addition to causing the daily suffering of billions of farmed animals, eating meat and other animal-derived foods has been conclusively linked to an increased risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer.

You can help stop cruelty and improve your health by going vegan. For great tips and free recipes to help you make the transition, take the vegan pledge.
