Pamela Anderson comes to defense of 850,000,000 chickens to Rostik's-KFC president
US actress Pamela Anderson, known for her animal protection effort, addressed Rostik, KFC's Russian partner, President Henrik Winther asking to cooperate in an effort to stop chicken abuse, REGNUM is informed by PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals) organization.
As Rostik's gets ready to unite with KFC throughout Russia, you might want to know that KFC has been the target of an international campaign by PETA for the last four years because of its refusal to eliminate the worst abuses its chickens suffer, the actress says in her letter.
According to Pamela Anderson, KFC's suppliers breed chickens to grow so top-heavy that they suffer heart attacks, lung failures, broken legs, and other crippling diseases and injuries. At slaughter, their throats are cut open and they are scalded to death often while they are still conscious.
KFC hired a panel of animal welfare experts to help it improve the lives and deaths of its chickens but then ignored the recommendations made by members of the panel. Subsequently, five of the members resigned. One said she felt she was being used by KFC, and another said he thought that KFC's upper management doesn't actually care about animal welfare, the letter runs.
Thank you for your time I hope that together, we can help protect the more than 850 million chickens killed for KFC from the worst abuses they suffer," says Pamela Anderson.
