All for chicken's sake

PETA (PEOPLE for Ethical Treatment of Animals), which is carrying on a movement against Kentucky Fried Chicken's lone Indian outlet which is in Bangalore has claimed the support of Grammy Award nominee Anoushka Shankar. For the record, PETA has been holding demonstrations in front of KFC outlet in Brigade Road, parading a "lame chicken". Anoushka says in her message: "As the world's leading killer of chicken, KFC has the responsibility to take the lead in eliminating at least the very worst abuses but had done nothing". The lame chicken finds a celebrity supporter. Patrons of joints other than KFC are tucking into their fried chicken.
