PETA exposes the cruel slaughter of chickens for fast food chain McDonalds

PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are campaigning to end the "cruel" methods used to slaughter chickens supplied to the fast food chain McDonalds. PETA states: "Chickens killed for McDonald's are slaughtered using an outdated method that results in extreme suffering. As one of the biggest sellers of chicken meat, McDonald's has the responsibility - and the ability - to reduce this abuse by demanding that its US and Canadian suppliers use a less cruel slaughter method".
