Fort Collins, Colo. – As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers prepare to face off against the Kansas City Chiefs for Super Bowl LV, PETA’s chicken mascot will get in on the action tomorrow with a giveaway of delicious vegan wings from plant-based local restaurant Tasty Harmony. PETA supporters will hold signs proclaiming, “Vegan Wings? Cluck, Yeah!”

When:    Saturday, February 6, 12 noon

Where:    100 N. College Ave. (at the intersection with E. Mountain Avenue), Fort Collins

“Every year, hundreds of millions of chickens are killed for Super Bowl Sunday, so PETA is encouraging fans to tuck into tasty game-day snacks that let chickens keep their wings,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Everyone can score a touchdown for gentle birds by choosing vegan wings.”

As PETA reveals in its “Chicken in Reverse” video, what happens to chickens is nothing to cheer about. The birds are crammed into filthy sheds and bred to grow such unnaturally large upper bodies that their legs often become crippled under the weight. At slaughterhouses, their throats are often cut, often while they’re still conscious, and many are scalded to death in defeathering tanks. Each person who goes vegan saves nearly 200 chickens and other animals every year.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—offers lists of ready-to-heat wings available at grocery stores and easy vegan game-day recipes on its website.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
