PETA cries seizure of sex dolls in Philippines 2007-12-27 15:34:03   Print

    MANILA, Dec. 27 (Xinhua) -- An animal rights group on Thursday blamed the Philippine customs for ruining their protest by confiscating inflatable sex dolls they planned to use for a global campaign against fowl cruelty.

    "The dolls were seized by customs officials when they arrived in the Philippines via U.S.-based package carrier UPS," the Hong Kong-based group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), said in a statement released by its Manila office.

    PETA said it was hoping to use the sex dolls in its campaign against Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) for abuses of chickens. "The sex dolls would have been covered only with a banner reading 'KFC Blows'", PETA said, "but now that plan has been dealt a blow."

    The group said it had planned to take the dolls on a tour of red-light districts in the Philippines, Thailand, Australia, and Japan.

    Despite KFC's previous denials, PETA insisted suppliers for KFC often abused chickens, including allegedly scalding them to death and cutting off their beaks while they are still conscious.

    "KFC profits from using crude killing methods. We are calling on people worldwide to boycott KFC until the company implements minimal animal welfare standards," PETA said.
