PETA request for town name change rejected

OKLAHOMA CITY -- A truckload of veggie burgers wasn't enough to get a small Oklahoma town to change its name to Veggieville.
Members of Slaughterville's town council amicably heard presentations by members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals before voting against the suggestion Tuesday night.
PETA officials contend the current name conjures up images of violence against animals.
