Pink Pens Petition to KFC

Pink Pens Petition to KFCPink has kicked off a petition asking KFC to make sure that the more than 850 million birds killed for its buckets each year aren’t abused in ways that would make any kind person lose their lunch:

“PETA is asking KFC to eliminate the worst abuses that chickens suffer in the factory farms and slaughterhouses of its suppliers, including crippling injuries because of cruel breeding practices and the overuse of drugs, having their throats slit while still conscious, and being dunked into tanks of scalding-hot water while still alive and able to feel pain,” the petition reads. It continues, “I urge KFC to adopt the recommendations of PETA—and its own animal welfare advisors—to ensure that the gentle, intelligent animals who end up in its boxes and buckets each day are treated with at least the bare minimum of respect.”

Because birds aren’t included in the only federal law that protect animals at slaughter (even though they make up more than 98 percent of the animals eaten in the U.S.), KFC can get away with abusing chickens in these hideous ways. As a leader in the industry, it’s up to KFC to make sure that its birds aren’t being tortured.

Pink joins the growing list of celebrities—including Sir Paul McCartney, Pamela Anderson, Hawthorne Heights, Good Charlotte, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Black Eyed Peas, and The Rev. Al Sharpton—who are speaking out against KFC’s cruelty to animals.
