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).
