Dear Aminah, Click to watch the video. On September 5, 2000, PETA placed an indefinite moratorium on our McCruelty campaign when McDonald's agreed to require basic improvements in the way that its suppliers treat animals. Since then, PETA has tried to work with the company to make further improvements in the way that its chickens are slaughtered in the U.S.—but McDonald's has refused to do anything more to eliminate the worst abuses that chickens killed for its restaurants suffer. All of McDonald's U.S. chicken suppliers use a system called "electrical immobilization" to kill birds, which involves dumping birds out of transport crates and hanging them upside-down in metal shackles—often resulting in broken bones, extreme bruising, and hemorrhaging. The birds then have their throats cut while they are still conscious and are often immersed in tanks of scalding-hot water while they are still alive and able to feel pain. We are lifting our moratorium on the McCruelty campaign and need your help to persuade McDonald's to demand that its suppliers switch to a less cruel method of chicken slaughter called controlled-atmosphere killing, or CAK. Every published report on controlled-atmosphere killing systems to date—including a 2005 study by McDonald's—concludes that it is the least cruel form of poultry slaughter available. And some of McDonald's suppliers in Europe already use the system! Please write to McDonald's today and demand that it phase in the exclusive use of controlled-atmosphere killing of chickens by requiring that its suppliers switch to this method over time. You can also help by cross-posting this e-mail message and forwarding it to others who are interested in standing up for animals. Thank you for your continued support and for all that you do for animals! Sincerely, Tracy Reiman Executive Vice President [url=http://www.petatv.com/tvpopup/video.asp?video=McCruelty_8thcut_final_2_12_09-STD&Player=wm]click here for video[/url] http://www.mccruelty.com/

I think the video is awful, but I personally despise chickens. I will admit that. I have killed chickens by the ringing of the neck method while they were still alive and didn't mind because I don't like them. They smell, they are noisy and I don't see them as the birds I have but just being chickens.

I honestly don't like other birds but the ones I own. I see seagulls and crows and sparrows and I can't stand them. Before I got the keets and lovies, I really hated birds. I still do. It's a weird thing with me.

It sucks how they slaughter animals, but I love to eat chicken nuggets as do my youngest son and as long as I don't see it happen, I'll continue to eat it.

I'm sorry if this is blunt, but because you don't like chickens you think they deserve such torture?

Sometimes I'm just not sure to believe Peta because they go to the extremes. I can't feel anything towards a chicken because I just have no feelings for them. I'm sure it's awful how they're killed, but there's really nothing that's going to change that.

As long as they don't do it in front of me I'm still going to eat the food. I have killed many different types of farm animals and though it wasn't pleasant for the animal, it had to be done. I didn't have any emotional attachment to them.

I love my pets, but other animals used for consumption I could care less about. It's sad but it's true. I need to eat. I eat meat. As long as I don't know or hear how they're killed to get to my plate, I'm fine with it.
