Greensboro, N.C. -- Holding a sign reading, "Broken
Wings and Legs," a giant "crippled chicken" will repeatedly
cross the road in front of the Grandover Resort
to lead a protest against the North Carolina Poultry Federation, which will be
holding its 45th annual meeting inside. The action will focus on the
abusive treatment of billions of chickens raised and killed by the industry
When: Thursday, August 9, 3:30 p.m.
Where: Outside the Grandover Resort, 1000 Club Rd. (at the intersection of Grand Resort Circle and Grandover Parkway), Greensboro
Chickens raised and killed by the
poultry industry suffer from abuse that would result in felony
cruelty-to-animals charges if other animals were the victims. They are bred to
grow so large that many become crippled from the weight of their massive upper
bodies. They have their throats slit while they are still conscious, and many
are scalded to death in defeathering tanks.
"Chickens are probably the most
abused animal on the planet," says PETA Associate Director of Campaigns
Lindsay Rajt. "If the members of the North Carolina Poultry Federation
abused cats or dogs the way that they abuse chickens, they could be thrown in
information, please visit PETA.org.
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
