PETA Pickets Cockfighting in Philippines

And the solemnity of the occasion was only broken by some guy in a chicken costume.

Animal rights activists on Tuesday picketed the venue of an international cockfighting derby in the Philippines, calling for a ban on the "cruel blood sport."The demonstrators from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) were led by one member dressed in a yellow chicken costume. They held banners that read "Small Men Hurt Little Birds. Ban Cockfighting!"

"While other countries have banned cockfighting or are cracking down on the cruel bloody sport, the Philippines' image is being tainted internationally for allowing animals to be tortured in the name of sport," PETA said in a statement.


Enough with the costumes already. I know it gets attention, but it just seems silly.

Now the Spaniards, they protest buck naked
. But don't get your hopes up, the link is to the Catholic World News.
