PETA protests mass chicken dance at NASCAR race

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals asked Guinness World Records Inc. on Monday to ignore an attempt to set a world record for the largest group chicken dance at the Talladega Superspeedway, site of the Aaron's 499 race on Sunday.

The reason? KFC is the sponsor of the record attempt, and the animal rights group says the fast-food company is cruel to chickens.

A KFC spokesman defended the company's treatment of animals and
said it hoped to get 125,000 race fans involved in the mass dance.

    Screw Peta! They have caused more animals to be hurt than they claim to have helped. Just do the research. I say PETA should stand for People Eating Tasty Animals.
