peta-chicken-statue

The City of Salem, Oregon denied a request by PETA to have a memorial statue installed at the site where a truck carrying over 5,400 chickens overturned, spilling the birds onto the pavement. Apparently,”“a considerable number” of chickens died in the crash, and many others appeared to have died during the cleanup phase.” The statue was designed by Harry Bliss.
