A supplier of chickens to KFC, which is a chain of restaurants serving fried chicken in America, has been accused of killing the birds by stomping on them, throwing them against walls, and kicking them. The story was exposed through a hidden camera snuck into the plant by PETA.

If true, this is horrible news and those responsible should be severely punished. While I am no vegetarian, mainly because vegetables don't grow very well in the middle of a frikkin' desert, I nonetheless feel that the animals we use for food should be killed in a swift, humane manner. Needlessly prolonging the killing process, and senselessly beating them to death in a long drawn out process for one's own personal amusement is not only morally reprehensible, but beyond any possible excuse. It is certainly no way to treat precious livestock.

I mean, it's not like they're Shiites.
