Little Nuggets vs. McCruelty in NYC

It wasn’t your average Chicken Dance: A pink stretch Mini Cooper delivered a troupe of little people dressed as dancing chickens declaring “I Am Not a Nugget!” to a PETA protest outside a McDonald’s in NYC’s Times Square yesterday.

Flocks of tourists watched the chickens perform a choreographed musical protest against McDonald’s suppliers’ outdated and outrageous slaughter methods, which cause millions of conscious birds to suffer broken bones and many to die in tanks of scalding-hot water.

McDonald’s European suppliers already use a slaughter method that renders chickens unconscious while they’re still in the transport cages—and two slaughterhouses in the U.S. have begun to implement the new system, controlled-atmosphere killing (CAK). But McCruelty still refuses to require its U.S. suppliers to upgrade to CAK. Please join us in speaking up for chickens.

A big thank you to Centerfold Strips, which approached PETA to volunteer its professional dancers for this protest!

Just keepin’ it real,
