The campaign includes blood buckets filled with info-props, which PETA will be "handing out . . . to kids at KFC locations nationwide." Also, activists in Germany recently doused the CEO of Yum! Brands (which owns KFC) in blood. KFC, for their part, is borrowing a Paige* from the US Secretary of Education: "We don't comment on the corporate terrorist activities of PETA," said KFC spokeswoman Bonnie Warschauer. "They are corporate terrorists and just like the United States government, we will not negotiate with corporate terrorists." I've been a vegetarian for over ten years, and while I'm often frustrated by PETA's sexist campaigns, I'm not sure what to think about this one. There's no question that chickens are treated cruelly on their way to our dinner plates. Is this the way to capture America's Attention Deficit? * Sorry, I couldn't resist.
"Corporate terrorists" vs. "Evil" Col. Sanders. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals [PETA] is at it again; they've launched a new campaign against KFC, to push for more humane treatment of chickens.
