GARFIELD COUNTY, Utah (ABC4) — As officials continue monitoring the massive crack at the Panguitch Lake Dam, PETA offered to fix the issue — for an ad placement encouraging residents to go vegan.

PETA sent a letter Monday to Allen Hernie, president of the West Panguitch Irrigation and Reservoir Company, offering to contribute to the considerable costs of fixing the crack — if the company agrees to place a PETA advertisement on the dam. reached out to the West Panguitch Irrigation and Reservoir Company for comment, but has yet to hear back.

PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said the animal rights organization is eager to “shore up the dam and the health of Panguitch residents with this win-win offer,” as, according to Newkirk, going vegan can lower risks of cancer, heart disease, and other deadly illnesses.

In the letter to Henrie, Newkirk said PETA has more than 9 million members and supporters globally, including thousands in Utah.

“We’ll contribute to the cost of repairing the Panguitch Lake Dam if you’ll allow us to place an eye-catching public interest message on it reading, ‘Give a dam about your health. Go vegan,’ Newark offered in the letter.

The letter states that “every person who goes vegan after seeing our ad would prevent nearly 200 animals a year from suffering on factory farms.”

“I hope you’ll agree that our offer holds water,” the letter states. “We’d be happy to provide delicious vegan snacks for everyone to enjoy at the ad’s unveiling.”
