BIRD BRAINS: PETA Wants Roadside Memorial for Killed CHICKENS

GAINESVILLE, Ga. — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has asked the Georgia Department of Transportation to create a roadside memorial for chickens that were killed in an accident last month.

“They are living creatures, so they do feel pain, just like we do,” said Sarah Segal, the woman who actually wrote the request.

The 10-foot-tall tombstone would memorialize the chickens that died when the tractor trailer carrying them overturned on Athens Highway in Gainesville Jan. 27.

Gainesville is known as the Poultry Capital of the World and the birthplace of the “assembly line” form of slaughtering chickens, PETA said in a statement.
