PETA claims baseball’s use of the word ‘Ballpen’ is ‘insensitive to cows’

PETA's latest stunt is sure to raise eyebrows

Most Popular

Controversial animal rights organisation PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is calling on baseball boses to ditch use of the term ‘bullpen’, because it’s insensitive to cows.

In a press statement released this week PETA claimed the term ‘bullpen’, which has been in use in baseball for more than a hundred years, ‘referenced the ‘holding area where terrified bulls are kept before slaughter.’ They suggest instead using a ‘more modern, animal-friendly term’.

The term they suggest is ‘arm barn’.

In baseball, the term ‘ballpen’ is an area away from the main pitch where reserve pitchers warm up and exercise.

The announcement was met with a mixture of suprise and derision.

Baseball boses are yet to respond. PETA also took aim at other sports which use the term, such as Rodeo.
