Because the University of Maryland (UMD) has yet to respond to the more than 5,000 students and faculty who have signed student group VegTerps’ petition to banish McDonald’s from the campus, the students have decided to take their campaign to the next level by installing a head-turning chicken statue donated by peta2!

The 5.5-foot-tall statue—which was designed by renowned New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss—features a “bloody” chicken on crutches and reads, “McCruelty: i’m hatin’ it.” VegTerps installed the statue outside the Stamp student union, where McDonald’s is located.

It’s a shame that the campaign has had to come to this, because UMD has actually been praised before for its wide range of vegan dining options, but the school’s clear disregard for the welfare of the birds killed for McDonald’s is dragging its otherwise good reputation into the gutter. Hopefully this statue will be the straw that breaks the administrator’s back, so to speak.

    Even if students aren’t vegetarian, college students have a hard time eating healthy as it is. There shouldn’t be a McDonald’s on a college campus.
