Cruelty Free Online Game from PETA

Kentucky Chicken CrueltyPeople for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is an animal rights organization, meaning that in addition to focusing on animal welfare and protection issues, it rejects the idea of abuses in factory farming and slaughterhouses. PETA has requested that KFC require that its suppliers adopt the welfare recommendations of KFC's own animal welfare committee, including stopping the breaking of birds' limbs and drowning conscious birds in tanks of scalding water.

KFC is PETA's fourth fast food target for animal cruelty, after campaigns against McDonald's, Burger King, and Wendy's. KFC wants cheap meat so they can compete with all the burger places who are selling more and more patties for lower prices. PETA shot the following video footage at a slaughterhouse in Moorefield, West Virginia. Please allow PETA member Pamela Anderson to explain the situation:

Now, I'm not a vegetarian myself but we, as humans, do need to show proper treatment for animals. This is very important. However, at the end of the day they're just chickens and cooking them doesn't fall into "cruelty" category. You can still eat them as long as they are treated properly while they're alive.

More recently, PETA created the Mario Bros-style Super Chick (as in chickens) Sisters Game where you are off to rescue Pamela Anderson who has been kidnapped by KFC's Colonel. OK, so the controls and physics of the game are a tad off but what I like about this game is that it's one of the best flash Mario clones I've seen.

Oh and try to finish the 5-level game as soon as possible (or download it on your computer for PC or Mac) before Nintendo sues PETA for copyright infringement to the usage of Mario, Luigi and Wii in the cut scenes.
