Chicken Chucking Protest
February 16, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 2:30 pm
The Kilt & Clover in St Catharines ON is hosting a fundraising event in which the corpses of dead chickens are tossed about in a curling style competition to raise money for local charity.
💥Please join us in peaceful opposition to this horrific injustice to other animals💥
The organizers claim that this is a “fun” event and it is acceptable to throw these victims of violence around because the money raised goes to charity, and the dead bodies are fed to “rescued” tigers afterwards. How the money raised is used is irrelevant, there is no excuse or justification to exploit the bodies of chickens…not for entertainment, not for food…not for anything. There are limitless other options available for a fundraiser that do not objectify other animals.
These animals were fully sentient individuals with interests just like any of us. All that separates us from other animals is our bodies. It is not ethical to objectify and exploit others based on insignificant biological differences, species membership is one such insignificant difference.
Also problematic is the idea that these tigers exploited by the entertainment industry are “rescued”. If they were rescued they would be in a sanctuary, not forced to perform for the financial benefit of their “owner” by feeding these chickens to these tigers not only are they actively Objectifying these chickens, they are participating in the exploitation of these tigers.
Meeting location to be posted soon.
