PETA's McCruelty Campaign Takes on McDonalds for Halloween!
I admit that I laughed when I first saw this website - the shock value of the Evil Ronald mask made me laugh. But ... after I started watching the videos and reading the articles, the horror of it hit me all over again. I mean ... this is a restaurant where we take our children!!
I don't want to alienate our readers, and I've definitely taken my kids to McDs in the past, but I totally support the work PETA is doing to stop McDonalds cruelty to the chickens they use in their menu items. A more humane way exists (controlled atmosphere killing-CAK) but McDonalds has long refused to use it.
Isn't it far better to make an informed decision when you choose where to spend your dining dollars?
If you choose to fill out the order form for the Evil Ronald kit, you'll receive a pack that includes a limited-edition "Evil Ronald" mask, stickers, petitions and leaflets to help get the word out about McCruelty at school and around town, and more! Don't forget to change your country to "Canada" when you fill out your address info. You'll definitely get people around you talking!
PETA also has many more age-appropriate and gentle video clips on their website to teach children all about caring for and loving animals, and stopping animal abuse.
