Urge McDonald's to reduce the abuse and adopt a less cruel method of slaughtering chickens.

The slaughterhouses supplying chickens to McDonald's dump the birds out of their transport crates and hang them upside down on their way to being killed. Chickens often suffer broken bones, extreme bruising, and hemorrhaging as they wait in fear to have their throats cup open while still conscious. Many birds are immersed in tanks of scalding-hot water—alive and able to feel every bit of the pain.

PETA has been urging McDonald's to stop the cruelty and adopt a more humane slaughter method called "controlled-atmosphere killing" (CAK), which would eliminate the majority of these animal welfare issues. Learn more about McCruelty and CAK here: www.McCruelty.com.

Join the cause today and demand that McDonald's switch to a less cruel method of slaughter.
