PETA ads target kids over Thanksgiving Day turkeys

With only a few days to go before America gobbles up its turkey dinners on Thanksgiving Day, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has ratcheted up its pro-vegan campaign by targeting children.
In a billboard ad released in time for the holiday, PETA asks children the following:
"KIDS: If you wouldn't eat your dog, why eat a turkey?"
The ad continues with "Go Vegan" and shows a dog's head on a turkey's body.
Earlier this month, PETA came out against Nintendo's Super Mario character because the video game hero wears the skin of a raccoon dog.
