A call for "naked" chickens to be removed from display on supermarket shelves is the latest measure animal welfare organisation PETA wants governments to adhere to in its campaign to turn the world vegan. They also protest against pictures of raw chickens in ads.
The American founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, president Ingrid Newkirk, criticised a newspaper for running a picture of a raw chicken. Other supporters expressed disgust at the sight of plucked chickens in supermarkets.
A PETA spokeswoman then went a step further, saying the sight of plucked chickens in supermarkets was "disgusting" and supermarkets should not be allowed to have them on display. "We don't want to see any chickens on display but, instead, want them to live natural, happy lives with their families," she said.
"Sexily displaying the corpse of a chicken who has been bred to grow so big, so quickly, that many collapse under their own weight, is just additionally offensive," she added.
