Why should you be a peta advocate?

By Brittany F.
Maryland, Age 15

You should be peta advocate because you should stand up for the rights of animals. They should be protecting because they have feeling to. Im going to give a fact about kfc chicken it may be good but it comes at a price. While it is true that “chickens are tortured by KFC,” it may be more effective to go into detail, explaining, “Chickens are crammed by the tens of thousands into sheds that stink of ammonia fumes from accumulated waste; they are barely even given room to move (each bird lives in the amount of space taken up by a standard sheet of paper). They routinely suffer broken bones from being bred to be top heavy, from callous handling (workers roughly grab birds by their legs and stuff them into crates), and from being shackled upside-down at slaughterhouses.
