PETA sends lobster liberation through brick at Fenway Park

PETA is getting pretty creative when it comes to spreading the word against animal cruelty. Most recently, the animal rights group set their message in stone at Fenway Park in Boston.

Fenway, one of the most famous ball parks in the United States, is celebrating its 100th anniversary by allowing fans, and whoever would like to personalize a brick, to decorate one with a message that will be placed inside the stadium.

Unfortunately, for those who still want to participate, the deadline has passed, but that’s beside the point. PETA joined the fun by personalizing a brick with the following message, “Lead Our Bo Sox To Early Runs! Late Inning Blasts! Easy Routs! A Trophy In Our Name!”

Well, PETA was being sneaky and the message is actually an acronym. If you take the first letter of each word it spells out “Lobster Liberation.”

In light of Maine’s Lobster Festival, the organization wanted to spread the word and show their support for these red crustaceans.

PETA says it’s “a subtle reminder to shellfish-eaters to let the naturally long-lived crustaceans live those long lives in the ocean, where they belong. Just as BoSox fans should be free to watch baseball games, lobsters should be allowed to pursue their own pleasures, free from the excruciating pain of being boiled alive.

“No animal wants to end up on someone else’s plate, so skip the lobster festival. Hit the Green Monster instead and eat green, not mean. You can choose from a number of delicious and humane vegetarian meals and snacks, such as the veggie dogs, veggie burgers, and vegetarian burritos that earned Fenway an honorable mention in this year’s list of vegetarian-friendly MLB parks. And when someone you know is craving lobster? Don’t mock them—tell them to eat mock seafood, instead!”

What better place than Fenway Park to spread a pro-lobster message?
