KFC official picnic food, PETA unhappy
Animal rights advocates are not happy at a measure that
would make fried chicken Kentucky's official picnic
A legislation to assign the designation to KFC's chicken has been sponsored
by state Rep. Charles Siler. This was first served by Colonel Harland Sanders in
Siler believes that the late colonel's fried chicken deserves the title
because of worldwide attention and economic benefit it has brought to the state.
KFC has 11,000 restaurants in more than 80 countries.
Animal rights group, PETA, is not happy with the idea, claiming that the
chickens KFC serves not treated well. ''If the state legislature moves forward
with this one, then they should change Kentucky's state bird from the cardinal
to the debeaked, crippled, scalded, diseased, dead chicken,'' said PETA vice
president, Bruce Friedrich.
