Kentucky Fried Cruelty/PETA

About two years ago at Warped Tour I went from booth to booth doing what normal people do at Warped when one of their favorite bands aren't performing, collecting free stuff. I personally didn't care what I got as long as it was free so I could remember my Warped Tour experience the best I could. I had a full bag of things by the end of the day and was perfectly happy. On the car ride home I looked over my prizes to see what I got. The contents of my bag consisted of, some band stickers, poster, a few free CD’s and a DVD. I looked over the DVD and had no idea what it was about, on the cover it said PETA(which I heard somewhere before) and a list of bands on the back. I went home and put the DVD player in and sat on my bed listening to people from some of my favorite bands talking about why they don’t eat meat, or didn’t dissect frog in school. Since that summer I haven’t eaten meat.

More recently(as in today) I learned more about what PETA does. Today I joined the site and learned some things about places like KFC and McDonalds. KFC is horrible in my opinion, and here are some facts about what they do to the chickens.
If you have a weak stomach don’t read
-cram birds into huge waste-filled factories
-breed and drug them to grow so large that they can’t even walk
-often break their wings and legs
At the slaughterhouse
-the birds’ throats are slit
-they are dropped into tanks of scalding-hot water(often while they are still conscious)

…and more I don’t think I can write about without getting sick.

All info from here

Why eat there? What will that do for you? Will it taste the same after you’ve looked over what happens to the chickens? I’m not telling you that you have to change your eating habits completely but think about what you’re eating. Think about what had to happen for it to end up on your plate.

no 'for KFC' comments please.
