Cruelty in the KFC Slaughterhouse
If you’ve ever wondered why PETA is targeting KFC, you need only watch the following video. PETA’s undercover investigation into a Moorefield, West Virginia, slaughterhouse that was named KFC’s “Supplier of the Year” found workers who were stomping on chickens, kicking them, and violently slamming them against the floors and walls. Workers also ripped the animals’ beaks off, twisted their heads off, spat tobacco into their eyes and mouths, spray-painted their faces, and squeezed their bodies so hard that the birds expelled feces—all while the chickens were still alive.
We have to warn you: This video is not for the faint of heart.
You can help convince KFC to adopt animal welfare standards to protect the more than 850 million chickens killed for its restaurants each year. Add your name to our “Boycott KFC” pledge and let KFC know that cruelty to animals will not be tolerated.
