Topics: United Poultry Concerns' Campaigns to End Chicken Kaporos and Require
Fire Protection Systems in Farm Animal Housing Facilities
This week we talk with Dr. Karen Davis, founder and president of United Poultry
Concerns, about two of UPC's major campaigns to help chickens and turkeys and
other domestic fowl. They include the group's effort to replace the use of
chickens in cruel kaporos rituals with nonanimal symbols of atonement, and the
effort to persuade the National Fire Protection Association to require owners of
farmed animals to equip farm animal housing facilities with sprinklers and
smoke-control systems – something agribusiness producers do not want to do.
