PETA Boycotts KFC

  /   Monday January 06, 2003  

I saw in the NY Times that PETA has begun a boycott of Kentucky Fried Chicken. This strikes me as odd because I thought that they were all vegetarians anyway. Therefore, I don’t see how this boycott is going to have any economic impact unless they get people from outside their group to join in.

I’m all for the humane treatment of animals. However, I can see a subtle strategy that may (emphasis on “may”) be used by such an extremist group. It is possible to make it so expensive to keep up with standards that they drive poultry farmers out of business.
