Photos: Rescued Chickens—Wings Intact—Were Guests of Honor at PETA Super Bowl Party

Published by PETA.

This past weekend, PETA and Animal Place sanctuary held a Super Bowl party in honor of about 90 rescued hens, and the scene couldn’t have been more magnificent.

The festivities were hosted by four-time NBA champion John Salley, and vegan snacks—including “wings,” of course—were served to human guests by two sexy cheerleaders.


While the chickens waited for their pre-approved adoptive families to arrive, they were joined by celebrity guests, including Moby, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, Piggy D., Holly Marie Combs, and Jane Velez-Mitchell.

It’s estimated that some 600 million chickens are killed each year for the wings consumed just during the Super Bowl. That’s 1.25 billion chicken wings, according to The Huffington Post.
