Seventy Scots pigs killed in a lorry crash should have a tombstone erected in their memory, an animal rights group said.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is looking for planning permission for a memorial to be created in East Lothian.
We told how the lorry carrying the animals overturned and went up in flames on the A1 near Cockburnspath last week.
Emergency services raced to the scene but failed to save around 70 pigs that suffocated to death.
PETA propose that the tombstone would be emblazoned with a picture of a pig alongside the statement, ' I n memory of the pigs who suffered and died in a lorry accident at this spot... Try vegan'.
They said it would remind all drivers, including those with animals on board, to travel safely ` while also pointing out that everyone can prevent abattoir-bound lorries from travelling the motorway by choosing vegan meals.
PETA Director Elisa Allen said: "For nothing more than some chops, this crash left animals suffering on an already terrifying trip, likely to the abattoir.
"PETA's roadside memorial can prevent further tragedies, including human ones, by reminding people to drive with care and spare a thought for animals by no longer eating them."
Emergency services were called to the crash on November 16 after a tractor and trailer, a car and a lorry carrying pigs collided.
Three injured people were taken to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary for treatment.
Police Scotland said: "The majority of the pigs were safely removed from the vehicle, however unfortunately approximately 70 died. Some of those had to be humanely destroyed.
"Officers worked together with other emergency services to assist the injured parties and livestock as well as ensuring the road was kept safe and secure."
"An officer at the scene asked a local gamekeeper to attend to assist with a small number of animals that were suffering."
