PETA on the Offensive

In the U.S., about 6-7 billion chickens every year are raised in misery; then slaughtered for food. Millions die from heat exhaustion, freezing, and accidents during transportation. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has asked veggie activists groups (that's us) to join them in taking part in their Spring Chicken Offensive. The offensive is designed to target chicken fast food restaurants such as Kentucky Fried Chicken, Kenny Rogers' Roasters, and Popeyes. Among other ideas, PETA suggests organizing a car tie-up at restaurant drive-throughs.
