Stop Factory Farming


Published in am-New York

Though I appreciate your coverage of the horrific treatment KFC chickens endure, headlines like your "Dumb cluck" and the subsequent article, "KFC grilled over abuse" (July 21) demean and made needless fun of a serious topic.

There is nothing funny or humorous about Peta's undercover video.

Chickens are sentient, intelligent, friendly little beings who deserve better than being stomped on, smashed against walls, and having tobacco spit into their mouths and eyes. This shameful treatment needs to be condemned, not made light of.
