ANIMAL welfare extremists want to ban the display of naked chickens in supermarkets.
They also protest against pictures of raw chickens in ads.
The American founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, president Ingrid Newkirk, criticised a newspaper for running a picture of a raw chicken. Other supporters expressed disgust at the sight of plucked chickens in supermarkets.
A PETA spokesman said the organisation wants everyone to go vegan.
"We don't want to see any chickens on display, but instead want them to live natural, happy lives with their families.
"Sexily displaying the corpse of a chicken who has been bred to grow so big, so quickly, that many collapse under their own weight, is just additionally offensive."
