Abuse of animals is not appropriate. Yes PETA has the right to raise this as an issue even if im not for their group. How many jobs are going to be
lost at that chicken plant full of low education/wages workers in most likley a rural area? How many jobs will be affected at KFC? How many millions
of meat eating citizens MUST have food to eat in order to survive?
Yes, our food production for animal products is less than humane in some respects, but it has to be efficient and reasonable safe enough to supply
human needs first. Animal needs arent being considered because the plant isnt looking at 1 or 2 chickens, but thousands a day...all there to die.
Now a few bone heads have screwed their company and fellow employees
and PETA can help increase the cost of chicken as new regulations and requirement cost will get passed to us...do we feel beter now, not going to eat
meat any more?
The idiots that were abusing the animals probably are high school educated at best...they make about minimum wage to work in a hot room, where cages
of live chickens get dumped in front of them, so that they can grab the bird by the legs, flip him over (while the bird is crapping all over) and hang
him by his feet in little leg cuffs on a moving overhead track.
sound like a fun job? Imagine the kind of person that would take such a job....do you expect alot of higher refinements?
Now tho, because of nimrods, a whole company of workers is jepordised, in an industry that will keep processing birds, some of which may become
abused. Nothing has really changed except that PETA has scored a shock and awe victory.
Eat me PETA!
