Among PETA’s minimal demands are that KFC stop breeding and drugging animals so that they become crippled under their own weight or suffer from heart failure or lung collapse, stop slaughtering animals in a manner that causes many to be scalded to death or drowned in feather-removal tanks and stop gathering chickens in a manner that breaks millions of the animals’ wings and legs.
High-profile support for PETA’s campaign has come from Justin Hawkins of The Darkness , Pamela Anderson, the Black Eyed Peas , hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons , Sir Paul McCartney and Chrissie Hynde, among others. More than 2,000 protests against KFC have taken place around the world so far.
‘KFC stands for cruelty in our book’, says PETA Director Dawn Carr. ‘Nearly 750 million chickens are killed each year for KFC in the cruellest ways imaginable, yet KFC has refused to do anything whatsoever to eliminate the worst abuses that these animals suffer.’
