"Proposals Sponsored by PETA"

Published by MattPrescott; last updated at January 30, 2009


PETA files more resolutions than any other NGO. The most common type of resolution we have sponsored in the last several years promotes the use of "Controlled Atmosphere Killing" as a less cruel and more profitable method of turkey and chicken slaughter. (See "The Case for Controlled-Atmosphere Killing" on PETA's website: http://www.peta.org/cak/) These resolutions (noted below with "CAK") typically ask for a report to be issued on the economic feasibility of phasing in controlled-atmosphere killing in the company's own operations or as a requirement for suppliers.

Resolutions on animal welfare or animal testing typically ask for a report on what the company is doing to reduce dependence on animals and improve treatment of animals in the company's operations.
