Jacksonville, Florida. – Right across the street from the two clam eateries on the menu, a new PETA billboard carries the vegan message of octopuses to local diners: “Hands off!”
Diners can easily opt for vegan options at both Okinawa Japanese Grillhouse & Sushi Bar and Fuji Sushi, and that fish-free proteins such as Gardein Vegan Fish Fillet and Good Catch Vegan Tuna are the latest in healthy and friendly food. and are almost affordable. every grocery store.
“With a mini-brain in each tentacle, octopuses are as smart as possible and they are so sensitive that they can taste whatever they touch,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “The PETA billboard is a reminder that vegan products always within reach, even if you don’t have eight hands! “
With their high intelligence, octopuses, known for their ability to caress and kiss, can get bored, open cans, communicate with each other using patterns and colors, and use tools. Those who were in captivity even tried to escape and poured water on their captors. But due to arrogance – people’s belief that other species are inferior to our own – billions of octopuses and other invertebrates are killed every year for food. Some shellfish are even eaten alive.
The promotional video is located at Hamilton St., 2025 and runs until July 11.
