PETA's anti-meat trash cans

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (WKOW) -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) as offered to buy trash cans for parks in Colorado Springs, as long as they cans carry anti-meat slogans and pictures of women in lettuce-clad bikinis.

The cash-strapped city stopped picking up trash in parks to save money, and all trash cans were removed to discourage waste.

On Wednesday, PETA said they'd pay for the new cans as long as they carried the slogans "Meat Trashes the Planet" and "Go Vegan."

The Mayor of Colorado Springs says he'll consider the offer if it PETA also pays to have the trash picked up and hauled to the dump.  He later joked that the Colorado Beef Council might demand equal time.
