Representatives from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are asking the town of Turkey, Texas to rename their town "Tofurky" for Thanksgiving.

PETA sent a letter to Mayor Pat Carson on Monday, offering to provide a vegan feast for the whole town.

Tofurky is described as "a savory, flavorful, 'meaty' vegan entree with wild-rice and bread-crumb stuffing that is 100 percent cruelty-free."

The meal would come with "mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes (made with vegan margarine), and vegan apple pie topped with vanilla dairy-free ice cream."

As of Monday afternoon, the Mayor's office had "No comment."
