Perdue Farms Slaughter Plant Investigation – Act Now

1. The best way to help end the abuse of chickens is simply to not eat them. Although we have no nutritional need for meat, our taste for their flesh necessarily causes the suffering and misery of billions of animals. For information on vegetarian eating, including a free Vegetarian Starter Guide, easy recipes, tips, resources, and much more, please visit TryVeg.com.

2. Request that Perdue Farms be prosecuted for violating Maryland’s anti-cruelty statute. 

Please send polite letters to (and encourage friends and family to do the same):

3. Demand that KFC adopt standards that would help alleviate some of the suffering caused by its suppliers. While the best way each of us can help animals is simply to choose vegetarian options, KFC could—and should—do what it can to reduce some suffering and make the poultry industry less inhumane.

4. Learn more about the “broiler” chicken industry. It’s not only at slaughter that these birds are abused. Chickens raised for meat suffer horribly while on factory farms. Visit ChickenIndustry.com for more information.

5. Pass the findings of our investigation to your friends and family. Consumer power is key to achieving substantial change for farmed animals, and you can help bring that day closer by letting more people know about the ugly reality of animal agribusiness.
