A Cow Raffle  is rattling PETA as a boy tries to raise money for a trip to Scotland.

The parents of a 14-year-old boy are furious after PETA protested their son’s cow raffle – and then sent the child a link to a website filled with former Playboy models wearing “lettuce” bikinis.

“My wife and I were incensed,” said Scott Ward, of Slidell, La. “It was definitely not appropriate for a 14-year-old boy.”

Ward’s son, Logan, is raffling the cow to pay for a summer trip to Europe. He was recently selected as an student ambassador for People-to-People and has to raise $8,000 for the 19-day journey.

The Chicks-on-the-Right website first reported the story of the Ward Family and Fox contributor Todd Starnes picked it up to bring more attention to the story wich can be read here – http://radio.foxnews.com/toddstarnes/top-stories/peta-protests-14-year-olds-cow-raffle.html

Due to the overwhelming response and number of requests to offer donations to Logan Ward and his family after our cyber-attack from PETA, we [sic Scott Ward, Logan Ward’s father] have created this page to allow people to donate directly to help send Logan on his trip. It’s also a place for those who want to donate because they are just as incensed with PETA and the other so-called animal activists as we were when they attacked our 14 year old son and our family. This page is NOT for ticket sales. Thank you for your support of our family!! https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/0TKGb

Are you kidding me? $97. That is generous of the seven contributors, but that amount of money is barely going to buy this kids meals for a day in Europe.
 
What a missed marketing opportunity for the meat industry to remind PETA that meat is good, you know, “Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner.”  The beef campaign is part of the US Commodity checkoff program that gets its funds from producers of an agricultural commodity program and uses the money to promote it.  Blah, Blah.  Where are the big meat and food players here?
 
Hello Tyson Foods!  One of the world’s largest processors & marketers of chicken, beef & pork, as well as all those appetizers and snacks ought to be chomping to step up and sponsor this kid entirely!  http://tyson.com Or maybe the privately held Cargill!  http://www.cargill.com .
 
There is nothing like putting a face to a marketing campaign.  Logan Ward seems like the all American kid with decent grades, a Boy Scout, etc.  The perfect face for the meat industry and a means to combat things like the “Lettuce Ladies” of PETA. Either the National Beef Association, Cargill, Tyson or some similar company needs to step up to the plate here and pay for this kids trip in return for an endorsement of self sufficiency, family values and in support the of the beef industry.
