PETA Launching Boycott of KFC

    NORFOLK, Va. - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said Monday it is launching a boycott against KFC because of alleged animal-rights abuses by the chain of fried-chicken restaurants.

    The Norfolk-based animal rights group said it has tried for nearly two years to persuade KFC's parent company, Yum Brands Inc. of Louisville, Ky., to change the way it raises and slaughters chickens.

    PETA said that because those negotiations failed, it will launch a campaign to put public pressure on the company.

    Yum denied PETA's allegations.

    "We require all of our suppliers to follow welfare guidelines, developed by us with leading experts on our animal welfare advisory council," the company said. "Our suppliers are receiving unannounced audits at their poultry facilities throughout the year. Failure to comply with our strict guidelines would result in termination of our supplier agreement, if remedial action is not taken."

    PETA said it wants an end to "crude and ineffective electric stunning and throat-slitting" of chickens, and called for improvements in the conditions under which the chickens are raised. The organization said the birds should be allowed more space.

    Yum, which was created in 1997 as a spinoff of food businesses formerly owned by PepsiCo, also owns the Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Long John Silver restaurant chains.

    i forget the whole story, but i know that some 19 year old kid founded PETA after sneaking into a animal experimentation lab with a video camera. My opinion of PETA not withstanding, I believe that guy deserves a lot of props.

    for all the post modern, pseudo-cynics, fronting like they have "real" view on life - while anyone who dares to even *think* perhaps this might be cruel is a hippy SHUT UP AND CONSUME SHUT UP AND CONSUME. there's a HUGE difference between humanely killing and eating meat and this:




    don't pretend like you aren't disgusted

    this chicken lived for 18 months with NO HEAD! apparently unaware that it had no head, it still continued to try and crow and preen it's feathers with it's stumpy neck.

    but yeah, I don't eat that shit. Chicken grosses me out more than any other type of meat.
