PETA Crashes KFC’s Investor Pep Rally

Written by PETA | May 17, 2012

PETA made sure that attendees at this week’s annual meeting of KFC’s parent company, Yum! Brands, in Louisville, Kentucky, would have something to chew on besides their cruelly obtained drumsticks and wings.

Taking Stock—of KFC Cruelty

As shareholders of Yum! Brands stock, PETA can attend the company’s annual meeting and ask a question during the Q&A. So Yum! bigwigs and stockholders got an earful from PETA when it detailed how chickens used to supply KFC restaurants spend their entire short lives mired in their own waste in cramped filthy sheds on factory farms, only to be hung upside down, sustain broken wings and legs, and often end up scalded to death in slaughterhouse defeathering tanks. PETA’s representative then asked when the company will make the simple, badly needed changes that were recommended by KFC’s own animal welfare advisers (who understandably resigned in frustration).

How You Can Help KFC’s Chickens

Join Pink, Sir Paul McCartney, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the Black Eyed Peas, and many others in telling KFC to do right by chickens.

    I agree, factory farming has got to go.

  • Eve Miller says:

    Factory farming is not working. Besides being cruel to the animals it is harming the population and polluting the earth. People are beginning to realize that this is unsustainable and are shifting to non-meat diets. More stores and restaurants are offering alternatives to the dangerous meat products. Talk about shooting yourselves in the foot – both feet. What will your industry do when you lose your customer base?
