Kentucky Fried Cruelty
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ campaign against
fast-food giant Kentucky Fried Chicken has been going strong for the
past 4 years. The campaign focuses on the brutality and cruelty in
poultry farms and slaughterhouses.
Practices such as scalding chickens alive in boiling water or
slitting their throats while still conscious are not only legal but

meat consumed in the United States, are not protected by any regulated
standards and are not included in the Humane Slaughter Act, which covers
other farm animals such as cattle and pigs.

our poor stewardship of God’s animals. We are called to be compassionate
and caring; inflicting pain and suffering on God’s animals is neither.
