Activists from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals's youth outreach set up shop outside University Hall on the Bowling Green State University campus.
They put up a tent that included posters and a small theater exposing what they see as the evils of factory farming, and encouraging people to adopt a vegan diet. The display included a crate used to confine pregnant pigs. Visitors were encouraged to climb into the crate.
Also being shown was the documentary "Glass Walls," an expose of the meat industry.
The group was scheduled to stay on campus through 3 p.m. today.
