As the wedding of Bollywood's Kareena Kapoor and
Saif Ali Khan gets underway, PETA India are sending the gorgeous couple a sweet
gift that will stand out. The group is giving them a flock of five large vegan-chocolate
chickens prepared by Delhi's Choco Kraft. No animals, including no chickens
used for eggs and no cows used for dairy products, were harmed to make this
"Kareena Kapoor is vegetarian and refused
to eat eggs while filming Ek Main Aur Ekk
Tu", says PETA India Chief Executive Officer Poorva Joshipura. "What
better occasion than this 'wedding of the year' for PETA to honour Kareena's
compassion and to do our part to get Saifeena off to a deliciously sweet start
in their new life together?"
On India's factory farms, virtually all chickens have part of their
sensitive beaks cut off with hot blades. Egg-laying hens spend the rest of
their lives crammed into filthy wire cages, where most will never be able to
extend their wings. Mother cows and buffaloes on India's dairy factory farms
spend most of their days confined to tiny stalls. Many are injected with
oxytocin by farmers in an effort to force them to produce unnaturally large
quantities of milk, and as a result, they often suffer from severe stomach
cramps equivalent to labour pains. Calves on dairy factory farms are either
abandoned or killed so that the milk meant for them can be sold to humans.
can find vegan chocolates by reading the labels and ensuring that the dessert
is egg- and dairy-free. Check out what happens to cows used for their milk here.
