Des Moines -- PETA's interactive booth has been thrown out of
the Iowa State Fair after a video—which initially had been approved—sparked
complaints over profane language used by meat-trade workers who abused animals on factory farms. PETA has demanded
fair officials return its $1,050 fee for the booth—which drew throngs of
visitors on opening day. (See photos below.)
that led to the booth's dismissal spotlights a worker on a turkey farm who
unsuccessfully attempts to break the neck of a struggling bird. He exclaims,
"Sometimes they're fucking hard [to kill]." In the wake of Iowa's
controversial new law to ban undercover investigations inside factory farms,
the booth also contained video footage from PETA's investigation of an Iowa pig
farm, which documents supervisors and workers beating pigs with metal
rods and jabbing clothespins into the animals' eyes—evidence that led to convictions for the abuse and
neglect of animals. The video, hosted by Paul McCartney, is viewable here.
