Would You Eat a Dog Disguised as a Chicken?

Written by PETA | November 1, 2011

Washington, D.C.’s Woof Walk dog event turned into a squawk stroll when a little dog named Mongo dressed as a chicken challenged dog lovers to ask themselves why they call one animal “family” and another animal “dinner.”

While Mongo’s assistants explained to Woof Walkers that chickens are as smart and social as dogs, one former chicken farmer backed them up, saying, “I know they are. I used to have thousands of them.”

As that farmer can attest, some chickens are outgoing and fearless, while others are more reserved. Chickens can complete complex mental tasks, and they hand down knowledge from one generation to the next. Like all animals, chickens love their families, value their lives, and don’t want to suffer and die.

If you wouldn’t eat your dog, give chickens the same respect. Become a former chicken-eater—it’s easy with tasty, you’d-never-know-it’s-faux chicken, like Gardein Chick’n Filets, Boca Chik’N Patties, and MorningStar Farms Meal Starters Chik’n Strips
