PETA wants to buy the childhood home of Jeffrey Dahmer, a.k.a. the Milwaukee Cannibal, and turn it into a vegan restaurant.

"Rather than remaining as a stark reminder of its dark past, the building can instead become the site of a celebration of culinary compassion," People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said on its website.

The group, known for attention-grabbing stunts, also likened Dahmer's victims to cows, pigs and chickens.

"The difference is that when Dahmer was caught, his killing spree ended," PETA said.

Dahmer killed 17 men between 1978 and 1991 and was sentenced to 15 consecutive life terms. Fellow inmates murdered him on Nov. 28, 1994.

His childhood home in Akron, Ohio, was put up for sale in August 2012.

The Akron Beacon Journal reported turning the home into a restaurant might not be possible because it's zoned for residential use and is in an area with many other homes.
