PETA Accuses KFC of Animal Cruelty

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is suing KFC Corp., claiming the fast-food giant is misleading the public by denying it mistreats hundreds of millions of chickens headed for its outlets each year.

The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday, claims more than 700 million chickens slaughtered each year for KFC chicken restaurants “often endure suffering, often intense, for most, or all, of their lives.”

The lawsuit is the culmination of a six-month campaign waged by PETA against KFC and its parent company, Yum! Brands Inc., to force the company to adopt standards designed to maintain and slaughter them more humanely.
