      Chicken Abuse on NBC's "Tonight Show" is NOT Funny: Please Comment

      PLEASE forward WIDELY!

      On December 30, "The Tonight Show," on NBC at 11:30 p.m., featured a
      woman with a chicken act. She made an obviously scared chicken jump
      through a hoop from one elevated table to another, with a space in
      between, boasting that there was "no net." She also made a
      chicken "walk the tight rope" about 7 feet high, again boasting "no
      net." Jay Leno and his guests made comments like "Do you sleep with
      the chickens?" and references to Col. Sanders. This woman and The
      Tonight Show put these birds in danger and made fun of them. Please
      send your comments to:

      1. Debra Vickers, producer of The Tonight Show at
      dvickers@... (tonightshow.com)

      2. NBC at webstaff@... (wnbc.com)

      3. American Humane Association. Go to AHA's website at
      http://www.americanhumane.org, and click on "To email us, click

      Please urge Debra Vickers and NBC to keep chickens, other animals, and
      all animal stunts off the air. Urge them to confine their live
      performance bookings to human guests. Request a response to your
      specific concern as soon as possible.
