PETA is coming to town

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, better known as PETA, will make a stop at Wayne State University's main campus to speak with students about their efforts to curb animal abuse. 

The organization's president, Ingrid Newkirk, will speak to students on Saturday, Sept. 13 at 2 p.m. inside the McGregor Memorial Conference Center at 495 W. Ferry Mall between Cass Avenue and Anthony Wayne Drive. Newkirk will touch on a number of subjects including PETA's local and national work and their history of landmark victories against the inhumane and abusive treatment of animals.There will also be a Q & A session.

The speaking engagement is open to the public but parents are cautioned that there will be graphic images, so it's best to leave young children at home. 

While PETA fights for animal rights, some of their tactics have been questioned.
