PETA is known for their attention-grabbing demos and campaigns. Now, the animal rights organization has announced a new college campus tour meant to give students an idea of what animals experience at factory farms.

According to peta2, the tour is scheduled to hit campuses starting this Fall and will feature a 3D version of PETA’s ‘Glass Walls‘ video narrated by Paul McCartney. The “Glass Walls Exhibit: 3D” will be inside a 20×30 foot tent “inside of which students will be put in the position of animals in the meat industry by sitting in life-size gestation crates.” When viewers leave the tent, they’ll receive free samples of vegan food and literature along with PETA stickers.

The photo above is an early sketch of what the exhibit will look like. No dates or locations for the campus tour have been announced yet. Most PETA campaigns stir up some controversy, and this one will be no exception. Do you think having students watch from gestations crates will be a good way to shed light on the horrors of factory farming, or is PETA going too far?
