5,400 chickens, PETA wants people not to brush off what happened to those
individuals as if it were nothing more than widgets being spilled onto the road.

were being hauled to slaughter—were thrown from their crates, spilling the birds
across the roadway and killing hundreds of them outright.
This is not the first time that animals
have been injured and killed by reckless truck drivers. PETA has previously sought
to erect roadside signs in
honor of cows, pigs, and many other animal victims who died in the same way, many after suffering
Traffic accidents are
