On Saturday People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) held a small demonstration in front of the McDonald’s restaurant at the corner of 14th and U Streets NW. According to Katie Arth, D.C. Organizer for PETA, the protest was about a slaughtering process that McDonald’s poultry suppliers use. Arth said that other slaughter methods could be used that are less cruel to the chickens.

PETA’s DC offices are located in the area, on 16th Street NW.

    Cool stuff! McDonald’s should follow suit behind KFCs in Canada and Burger King. There is absolutely no reason for this sort of cruelty to continue. Yay for the PETA volunteers out there for this demo.
