PETA Holds Zombie Protest in Front of KFC

Over 100 people dressed up as zombies gathered outside of the KFC in Herald Square on Saturday as part of PETA’s Basket case”>Kentucky Fried Cruelty campaign to protest KFC’s terrible treatment of chickens. 

“Even flesh-eating zombies have nothing on the Colonel’s cruelty,” says PETA’s Dan Shannon in a press release. “We’re urging consumers not to set foot inside a KFC restaurant until the company stops these abuses.”

The protestors held signs saying “I’d rather be dead than eat KFC,” but since zombies are known to eat humans, perhaps the alternative is not so great.
