McCruelty B-ball


Nothing says “all-American” quite like the mass slaughter of animals, right? Um, yeah—didn’t think so. These chic-with-a-beak supporters and several other friends to chickens hit the streets outside the McCruelty-sponsored All American Basketball Games during rush hour in Columbus, Ohio, yesterday. They were urging passersby to boycott McDonald’s fowl fouls and petition the company to switch to suppliers that use ”controlled-atmosphere killing” (CAK), a humane play that would eliminate many of the worst abuses suffered by chickens at slaughter.

People outraged by McCruelty are signing up to host McCruelty demos in their cities, while others are pushing for Ronald’s retirement. Which will you choose?
