Wearing a “bloodied” chicken costume and lying with her throat “slit” on a chopping board next to a giant meat cleaver, PETA India founder Ingrid Newkirk reminded passers-by yesterday that flesh is flesh, in honour of World Vegan Month (November).
“When it comes to joy, love, pain and suffering, chickens feel the same as any cow or human”, says Newkirk.” PETA points out that an estimated million once living, feeling chickens are killed to be eaten every four hours in India. We can stop the immense suffering of these gentle birds simply by choosing vegan meals.”
As shown in PETA’s “Glass Walls” video exposé, chickens have their throats cut while they’re still conscious, and pigs scream as they’re stabbed in the heart. Cows are crammed into vehicles in such large numbers that their bones break as they’re dragged off to slaughterhouses, where many are dismembered while they’re still alive. On the decks of fishing boats, fish slowly suffocate in panic or are cut open while they’re still conscious.
