I am not going to get into defending PETA as the organization represents in practice one end of the spectrum that I am just not at.
I posted the KFC links and videos to show that KFC was still using “real chickens”. I watched the videos when they were first released last year but not yesterday when I posted the links. My recollection on the videos showing the chowderheads throwing the chickens against the walls, kicking them around, standing on them, and the like was that there was commentary criticising the workers more than KFC. The comment at the time regarding KFC was that the farm had just been recognized by KFC with a national standards or model practices award or some junk like that.
Targeting KFC over the actions of its suppliers or contractors is fair. That’s how dolphin-free tuna and turtle-free shrimp came about. And blood-free diamonds. And fair-trade coffee. And the anti-sweatshop campaigns. I have no issue with forcing a company to take responsibility for its products.
I posted the other links because we sometimes get disconnected from our food and the other products we use. It never hurts to reconnect a little with that. Not making or trying to make any statement other than that. Easiest way to deal with the PETA voice over is to turn the volume down.
And I too have hunted and killed for food. And I will tell the story sometime of the rabbit that just did not want to die.
