Whether you’re a tofu-eating, grain munching vegan like me, or a meat-eating, dairy drinking non-vegan like…well…just about everyone else, I think — if given the choice — most people would like to see animals treated humanely before they die.
Well at least Oscar-nominated actor Ryan Gosling sure would, and has joined the list of celebrity do-gooders that include Bryan Adams, Pamela Anderson and Ron Jeremy urging KFC to improve the conditions in their poultry slaughterhouses. KFC is notorious for the horrific manner in which they treat their chickens and their stubbornness to make any humane changes recommended by scientists and animal activists alike.
Gosling recently composed a letter on behalf of People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals to John Bitove, who oversees KFC Canada, asking him to stop the ongoing (and unnecessary) abuse of the chickens supplied to his restaurants.
Gosling writes, ”The time is ripe to do the right thing. By adopting the basic recommendations made by PETA and scientific experts (including raising birds in a more natural manner and employing less cruel slaughter methods), you could dramatically improve the lives and deaths of chickens raised and killed for KFC Canada.”
