Getting naked for the chickens
PETA is bringing its "naked beauties" to the Highlands KFC today at 11 a.m. From the press release:

"Wearing nothing but a banner in front that reads, “The Naked Truth: KFC Tortures Chickens,” and one in back that reads, “Turn Your Back on KFC Cruelty,” two sexy PETA members will lead a protest outside a local KFC restaurant over KFC suppliers’ abusive treatment of chickens in animal factories and slaughterhouses. Other PETA members will hand out leaflets to curious passersby.

"Why are PETA’s beauties baring all in the mid-winter chill? The more than 850 million chickens killed each year for KFC are tortured in ways that would result in cruelty-to-animals charges if other animals were the victims. They are drugged and bred to grow so large that many become crippled from the weight of their massive upper bodies. Many have their throats slit while they are still conscious and are scalded to death in defeathering tanks. KFC has ignored the recommendations of members of its own animal welfare advisory panel for years."
