Bryan Adams (who has unexpectedly appeared in two posts in less than 24 hours) is speaking out on torturous factory farming conditions for chickens and taking aim at the Canadian arm of Kentucky Fried Chicken for supporting them. The rock star turned photographer is teaming up with PETA to pressure KFC officials to change their practices. From the article,
“In a letter to John Bitove, the Ceo of KFC Canada, Adams, a longtime vegan, says, ‘I’m writing in the hope that you would be open to ways you could improve the lives and deaths of the birds who end up in KFC Canada’s buckets’. He goes on to describe how the birds are scalded to death in tanks of hot water, and what KFC can do to stop this abuse and other cruelties.
He writes, ‘If you could dramatically improve the lives and deaths of the birds who end up in KFC Canada’s buckets by adopting basic recommendations…then why not do it?’.
