PETA Successfully Outlaws Outdoor BBQs in Portland, OR

Members of P.E.T.A. (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have successfully lobbied to outlaw outdoor barbeques within city limits and suburbs of Portland, Oregon. The ban was based on a P.E.T.A. claim that the smell of cooking flesh is highly offensive and no one should be forced to endure the fumes from what they call “a crime worse than the Holocaust.”

Under the new law, individuals caught cooking meat outdoors can face a $2,000 fine or one day in jail.

Shortly after the ruling was passed with a 6 to 1 vote, the animal rights activists marched through residential areas in a “victory parade,” shaming residents with the collective chanting of slogans, amplified by their megaphones: “You are all thoughtless supporters of the animal Holocaust” and “Stop burning the flesh of your murder victims over hot coals.”

The group has spent the past few months patrolling neighborhoods and protesting outdoor grilling by raiding family picnics and outdoor gatherings, while screaming “murderers” and “animals deserve justice” at the families and individuals who have been caught cooking meat. In most cases the activists dumped water on lit barbeques and confiscated the meat with the purpose of giving it what they called a “proper burial.”
