PETA Billboard to Honor Chickens Killed in Fayette County Crash

A new billboard will be going up in Fayette County – to pay tribute to the chickens killed in a semi rollover last week.

PETA plans to place the billboard by the crash site on Highway 18 near West Union in honor of the roughly 2,500 chickens who died on May 14 when the truck carrying them overturned.

The billboard will show a chicken’s face next to the words, “I’m ME, Not Meat. See the Individual. Go Vegan.”

PETA hopes their billboard will remind people that the best way to prevent tragedies like this is to help keep smart, sensitive chickens off the road in the first place by going vegan.
