DOG-SHAPED VEGAN CHOCOLATES SENT TO AIRLINES AS THANKS
PETA protesters have pressured Alaska Airlines to discontinue its support of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, a sponsorship that has spanned 40 years.
The group has been staging protests at the company’s headquarters in SeaTac.
PETA heralded the decision and announced it has sent a box of vegan chocolates to the company as a thank you. It has already succeeded in getting several major companies to withdraw support, including Coca-Cola, Costco, Jack Daniel’s, Maxwell House, Nestlé, Panasonic, Pizza Hut, Rite Aid, Safeway, State Farm, and Wells Fargo.
The animal rights organization opposes “speciesism, which is a huma-supremacist worldview.”
This year’s Iditarod race begins with the ceremonial start in Anchorage on Saturday.
