PETA Interested In Leasing 'Elvis Ranch', Turning It Into Veganism Center

elvisA ranch once owned by the late Elvis Presley is up for sale — and PETA is interested in leasing it.

The 155-acre spread, located in Horn Lake, Mississippi, was purchased by Presley in 1967 and served as the site of his honeymoon with actress Priscilla Presley. In its current condition, the ranch raises cattle for slaughter — something PETA would love to see turned into a “Don’t Be Cruel” education center to promote veganism.

“Kids deserve to know that the animals who are turned into blue suede shoes and burgers are thinking and feeling individuals who don’t want to die and often panic at the slaughterhouse and try to run for their lives,” wrote PETA executive vice president Tracy Reiman in a letter to the sellers. “We are hoping that Mr. (Dennis) McLemore doesn’t have a ‘wooden heart’ and will let PETA make this a place where ‘Don’t Be Cruel’ means loving cows rather than eating them,” she said.

Unfortunately, the ranchers aren’t interested in leasing the property – but would happily sell it to the animal rights org. The current price stands at $6.5 million.

With PETA’s budget, $6.5 million seems like a steal for a massive piece of Elvis memorabilia. Such a place would bring in the crowds — which would give the group a public forum to spread its veggie message. Methinks, however, that this may just be another publicity stunt.
