My friend Phil and I, as we drove about doing odd jobs over the summer at work, enjoyed listening to Urban Chicken Updates. These updates came at inter-dispersed times during the incomparable Keith Larson Show from nine to noon on 1110, WBT. Urban chickens were in the news a lot; I think it mostly had to do with local referendums regarding the allowance of such “pets.” It was hilarious.
So, in that spirit:
URBAN CHICKEN UPDATE!
Headline: Murderous Farmers Forgoe Slaughter of Innocents
News Feed: “Controversy arose before the first chicken was scheduled for slaughter at the second Urban Farm Tour held Saturday in Carrboro/ After negative response from the public, founder Sammy Slade (who?) decided to cancel the demonstration in favor of a public discussion on chicken slaughtering” –DTH
Turns out local citizens were worried about whether the slaughter of the specific, non-human chicken breed in question would be, quote, “humane.”
Answer: a resounding “no.”
Justice has triumphed ag-ain!
