PETA offers to aid Florence mosque defaced with bacon

FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - It's been more than a week since a mosque in Florence was defaced with bacon, and now PETA wants to help the Islamic center send a message to those responsible.

Florence police say someone placed bacon strips along the sidewalk, spelling out the words "pig" and "chump" in front of the mosque.

PETA sent a letter to a board member of the Islamic center Tuesday, hoping they can put a sign up in front of the mosque.

The proposed sign would read, "Give peas a chance...Go vegan - nonviolence begins on your plate."

Mosque leaders have not yet indicated if they will allow the sign to be posted.
