Rooting for the Tigers

by Guest Blogger

October 26, 2012

Its not just Detroit rooting for the tigers this week. Activists in Denver, L.A. and San Diego took to the streets to tell KFC Stop turning tiger homes into trash! In L.A. folks came out in full force, marching through the Century City Mall and residential areas before arriving out front of a KFC on Pico Blvd. Armed with bongo drums, posters, banners and more, our enthusiasm seemed to rub off on passers by. Onlookers added their faces to our photo petition, urging KFC to cut ties with rainforest destruction and some even joined in the march itself. Folks driving by honked their horns in support. Most of the people we met had no idea that KFC was destroying the rainforest for throwaway packaging, placing numerous animals on the brink of extinction in the process.

KFC is on the verge of doing the right thing if only it can be persuaded to go further. Now were emailing Yum!s Board of Directors, to make sure this gets taken seriously. Add your voice to our petition to help save the Indonesias tigers.
