No more sexy chickens in supermarkets: PETA

US animal rights organisation, PETA, is calling on supermarkets to stop "sexily" displaying naked chickens, labelling its as "offensive".

According to weeklytimesnow.com.au, the founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Ingrid Newkirk, has also criticised American newspapers for running images of raw chicken, with the group reportedly hoping the public will embrace a vegan lifestyle.

"We don't want to see any chickens on display, but instead want them to live natural, happy lives with their families," a PETA spokesperson said.

"Sexily displaying the corpse of a chicken who has been bred to grow so big, so quickly, that many collapse under their own weight, is just additionally offensive."
