Part of the statement reads:
When police arrested Gregory Scott Hale, the reported Satan worshipper confessed to killing, dismembering and cannibalizing the body of 36-year-old Lisa Marie Hyder.

PETA points out that the violent acts for which Hale has been accused are acts that are commonly inflicted upon billions of farmed animals in the U.S. each year. Stressing the link between cruelty to animals and other violent crimes, PETA asserts that in addition to being healthy, cost-efficient, and easy to prepare, vegan meals promote non-violence.
Several correctional facilities have seen vegetarian diets help improve inmate behavior when used as part of a violence-reduction program.
Switching to vegan meals will at least keep the blood off this man’s plate,’ says PETA’s Associate Director. ‘PETA is offering to help Sherriff Graves save lives and public funds by switching prisoners, especially violent ones, to a humane and cost-effective vegan menu.
