PETA proposes roadside memorial for dead chickens

A local member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has applied to the Georgia Department of Transportation to erect a monument commemorating the chickens killed in a truck accident last month. The truck overturned Jan. 27 in Gainesville. Dozens of chickens on the way to a processing plant were killed. The chickens were the property of Pilgrim's Corp., formerly Pilgrim's Pride.

If the application is approved, the monument will be furnished by PETA. It is proposed to be a 10 foot tall tombstone to the dead chickens. The proposed inscription is: In Memory of the Dozens of Terrified Chickens Who Died as a Result of a Truck Crash January 27, 2014 Go Vegan

The memorial is intended to urge people to "Go Vegan" so that crashes like this will no longer happen.
