‘Chickens’ Crash International Poultry Party

Written by Michelle Kretzer | January 30, 2013

Every year, people who exploit chickens and reduce them to bits in a bucket gather at the International Poultry Expo to congratulate each other on making money at it. So this year, PETA sent a flock of “birds” to suggest that attendees give a cluck about chickens:

Banging on pots and pans and shouting, “We are not nuggets!” the chickens got everyone’s attention. A surprisingly large number of attendees accepted the demonstrators’ leaflets and listened to explanations of how chickens suffer on factory farms and in slaughterhouses, including being mutilated and drugged, having their throats slit while still alive, and often being scalded to death

It was an educational expo indeed.
