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 QA. 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).
How You Can Help KFC’s

Black Eyed Peas, and many
others in telling KFC to do right by chickens.
