PETA wants to open Vegan restaurant in Dahmer’s childhood home

The childhood home of serial killer/cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer is back on the market and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) sent a letter of inquiry to the real-estate company handling the property, which is in the Bath Township just outside of Akron, Ohio, in which they express a desire to obtain the home and convert it into a Vegan restaurant that would be called Eat for Life: Home Cooking.

PETA sent out a news release on Friday that included the following: “Murderous actions such as Dahmer’s-from binding victims’ limbs, drugging and dismembering them, refrigerating parts of their bodies, and eating them-are still carried out on other living beings who happen not to be human and that one way to turn evil into good would be to convert the home into a vegan restaurant if a zoning variance can be had.”

PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk said that opening a vegan eatery in Dahmer’s former home “would allow people to think of all the individuals who are still being killed and eaten and encourage them to practice kindness to animals with every bite they take.” PETA would like to see the site of Dahmer’s first murder become a place to contemplate nonviolence.

It is unlikely that the property would be rezoned, so the action is more of a media grab than a land grab.
