BATH, Ohio (AP) — A national animal welfare group says it has abandoned the idea of turning serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer’s childhood home in Ohio into a vegan restaurant.

Moira Colley, spokeswoman for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, tells The Akron Beacon Journal the group “won’t be able to move forward” with the proposal to convert the large northeast Ohio house into a restaurant called Eat For Life: Home Cooking.

The idea was floated by PETA last week after it was announced that the house near Akron was again up for sale.

The real estate agent, Richard Lubinski of Stouffer Realty, said Tuesday he was not surprised.

Given PETA’s history of publicity stunts, he said, “it doesn’t take a rocket scientist” to determine it probably wasn’t a serious offer.

    Thanks for participating in the publicity stunt. There is a great deal of real news happening in NE Ohio.

    who would really want to eat here????

  • golfingirl

    PETA = People for Eating Tasty Animals.

    All salads on the menu, no doubt.

    In my opinion, salad isn’t food, its what food eats.
