CHICAGO — Animal rights group PETA wants Illinois to install highway signs in memory of 20 cattle killed when trucks hauling them flipped in two separate wrecks.  Illinois Department of Transportation spokesman Josh Kauffman says the request will likely be denied because the state’s Roadside Memorial Act specifies that only relatives who lost loved ones in highway crashes may request memorials.
