A Superhero for Chickens!

Written by PETA | July 1, 2008

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Wait! It’s a plane looking to help birds—chickens, to be precise.

Beachgoers flocking (geddit?) to Panama City’s crowded beaches had something far more interesting to gawk at this weekend than women in skimpy bikinis, as an airplane hired by PETA flew overhead, towing a banner that read, “Boycott KFC Cruelty.”

Now if you’ve been following PETA campaigns for the last, oh I don’t know, 7 years or so, you’d know that this is a huge success considering we spelled all the words right this time around! Way to go, literate banner-manufacturers! (Yes, we got our money back when one banner company misspelled “dangerous”)

After reaching a landmark animal welfare agreement earlier last month that will mean better living and dying conditions for all chickens killed for KFCs in Canada (the new faux fried chicken sandwiches offered at most Canadian KFCs are even causing us to celebrate that today is Canada Day), PETA is unleashing its “air force” to turn up the heat on Canadian KFCs’ lousy, mean U.S. affiliate. Celebrities from Ryan Gosling and Pam Anderson to Sir Paul McCartney and Russell Simmons have all spoken out against KFC’s extreme abuse of chickens, but this is the first time that an airplane has “spoken up” for chickens.

Check out this picture of our superhero for chickens in action!

  • nicole says:

    Well done PETA. thanks to your videos and actions i have even been able to convince my carnivourous partner to boycott KFC!!!

  • Kelley says:

    I have been considering the KFC campaign. I think it mught have been easier to pressure Chik Fillettheir corporate identity seems to be very caught up in Christianity. Would it not be easier to shame them into doing the morally correct thing and stop scalding terrified live birds to death??

  • How About says:

    Wouldn’t it be better to run the website in the banner? I think many people in the context seeing that banner the way you have it may not know what “KFC” refers to and if they did would just be like oh some wierdos did that banner or they would just not get any info from it as to why to boycott or they would just think the “cruelty” is the normal typical process of slaughter and be opposed to being told to boycott. I think most people seeing that banner would either not know what KFC refers to or would make some snide chuckle and be just naturally opposed to the people who put the banner there automatically assuming the cruelty is just normal and fine and siding with eating meat vs you Peta people. At least if it had the website some people might go there out of curiosity and see the info.
