A website called vegan.com recently posted a photograph of a toy semi truck — more specifically a ERTL Big Farm 1:32 Peterbilt Model 579 Semi with livestock trailer. The caption simply read, “Seriously, Walmart?”
Vegan readers of the website soon responded. One reader tweeted, “This is unimaginably disgusting. Walmart selling a toy slaughter truck. #vegan.”
Others are calling the truck a symbol of “barbaric treatment of innocent animals” and a toy that showcases “the reality of violence in agriculture.” One urged Walmart not to “support the desensitization of children.”
A petition has been circulating which demands that Walmart pull the toy semi truck from the shelves of its 11,500 worldwide retail stores. More than 4,000 people have signed the petition so far.
Walmart has not yet responded to the public outcry.
