PETA UK is currently making headlines for one of its newest stunts, which tricks the public into drinking "dog's milk."
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals collected a focus group and took to the streets with a small sampling booth to give out small glasses of 'Barker's Farmhouse Milk.' People described it as sweet and smooth—in fact, what they were consuming was soy milk. But upon being told it was dog's milk, people were outraged at the idea of drinking milk from an animal—perfectly illustrating PETA's stance on the production and consumption of animal products.
Since there have been many new alternative animal milk products from camels, gorillas, sheep and goats introduced to the market as of late, this stunt is especially timely.
