PETA vs. "Beef Queen": Challenge Made to Future Aggie

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- An animal rights group is daring the West Virginia Beef Queen to become a vegetarian - or wrestle one in a tub filled with tofu.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants Megan Webb, who'll attend Texas A&M this fall, to take on its bikini-clad Lettuce Lady.

The winner would get $5,000 donated to charity. The loser would have to eat a meal and watch a video chosen by the winner.

Webb was crowned in January at the West Virginia Cattleman's Convention, which says it received the challenge Wednesday. It's unclear whether Webb has seen PETA's invitation.

But she's unlikely to change her ways: Webb is a longtime member of 4-H and the Future Farmers of America who has shown calves for six years.

She plans to major in animal science at A&M.
