Our last four demos in front of KFC's in Portland were extremely productive, especially the one where we handed out delicious veggie food to the public. We spoke privately to workers at these facilities and they confirmed that employees are treated like s__t at KFC's. Please join us again for our monthly outreach in front of KFC, NE 7th & Weidler on Saturday, July 7, 2007 at 12:00 noon till 1:00 PM. The more than 850 million chickens killed each year for KFC are tortured in ways that would result in felony cruelty-to-animals charges if other animals were the victims. They are drugged and bred to grow so large that many become crippled from the weight of their massive upper bodies. Many have their throats slit while they are still conscious and are scalded to death in defeathering tanks.
"Slasher films have nothing on the real day-to-day life at KFC slaughterhouses, where birds have their throats slit while they are still conscious," says PETA's Cassandra Curbelo. "KFC executives who refuse to make even the most minimal changes for animals should be haunted by the cries of the hundreds of millions of animals they torture and kill each year."
