KFC’s Cut-Throat Killing Machine

Published by PETA.

The following new undercover footage from a KFC supplier’s slaughterhouse will stun you. And that’s more than we can say for the chickens who are conscious when they face the killing blade, one by one…

As you can see, KFC doesn’t give a cluck whether chickens are stunned (rendered unconscious) before they’re killed. Birds are not protected by the federal Humane Methods of Slaughter Act, so almost all chickens are still conscious when their throats are cut, and many are boiled to death in the feather-removal tanks after missing the throat cutter and the “back-up killers.”

Disgusted by this cut-throat business? Get active against KFC today, and share this video with everyone you know.
