Switching to vegan meals will keep blood off this man's plate, and that seems a useful thing to do.
Austin Harrouff was accused of stabbing two people to death and eating parts of a man's face.
So PETA and requested on Friday that he only be given vegan mails while in jail, our partner at CBS 12 reports.
The bizarre case
Harrouff, 19, is accused of killing John Stevens and Michelle Karen Mishcon at their home in Tequesta, Fla., on Aug. 15, 2016. When the first deputy arrived, he saw Harrouff biting Stevens and spitting out his flesh. It took a stun gun and a K-9 to force Harrouff off Stevens and arrest him.
Later, Harrouff was scheduled to be interviewed on "The Dr. Phil Show," but the interview was canceled due to "new developments." Martin County Sheriff William Snyder denied any new developments.
Seriously? Dr. Phil?
Yes. Family members told CBS 12 the show pulled the episode out of respect for the families of the victims.
If Harrouff did, in fact, eat the flesh of a human, vegan foods could diminish that bloodthirstiness...
OK, so why PETA?
PETA, who has long argued that animals are not food, argued that a vegan diet will be more cost-effective, since it will make Harrouff healthier, thus not costing taxpayers extra to take care of him.
What about Harrouff?
Harrouff, a Florida State University student, was hospitalized for weeks after he was arrested.
Recently released documents show he told police "Help me. I ate something bad," when he was being taken into custody. When asked what it was, he said, "Humans." He also yelled "[expletive] Kill me, shoot me now, I deserve to die!" when deputies arrived.
