PETA calls for ban on the display of naked chickens in supermarkets

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.

Hilarious considering the obvious... perhaps they need to rethink their advertising??

And... "sexy" nude chickens? hmm. I'd think that removing the look of raw meat (and the real shape of the animal) would encourage many potential vegetarians to carry on eating meat.

I'm sure the chickens no longer care if they're naked.

Nice pic, Arbroath.

I'm a vegan and I can't stand PETA. They do more harm to the animal rights cause than good with their buffoonery.
