Residents of Vancouver, Canada got an eyeful yesterday as registered holistic nutritionist and PETA activist, Amy Balcome, 28, let herself be served up nearly naked (save for some barbecue sauce), on a downtown street corner as fellow protesters stood around holding signs in both Chinese and English that read "Meat Is Murder" and "Save Animals Every Year — Go Vegan."

According to PETA vice-president of communications Lisa Lange, “the protest was created to get people thinking about where their food comes from ahead of the EAT! Vancouver Food + Cooking Festival.”

"I stopped eating meat, dairy and eggs. Getting the facts out to people and encouraging them to try vegan dining is the best way to save billions of animals from being abused and killed for food," said Balcome in a statement.

"We are challenging people to think about what 'meat' really is: the corpse of an abused animal who did not want to die. With all the delicious mock meats and faux dairy products available these days, there's never been a better time to go vegan," Lange added.
